What Should Students be Writing? Common Core Expectations for Writing and Best Practices for Meeting Writing Requirements


Screen shot 2014-01-17 at 1.06.40 PMCollege & Career Readiness requires enhanced writing proficiency but what does that really look like?  How do we support teachers and students together to achieve greater levels of writing success?  Is proficiency a function of quantity alone?  What are the elements that define high quality writing for the Common Core and other College & Career Ready standards? In this example-packed webinar for the edWeb.net Implementing the Common Core State Standards community, presenter Kevin Baird of the Center for College and Career Readiness, gives attendees assistance with defining writing success through specific, achievable routines and rubrics.  Writing is the process for illustrating thought, and is the key element for more than 75% of the new Common Core Standards in English Language Arts.  A new study, funded in part by the Gates Foundation, notes that the Writing Standards are some of the most important and impactful.  Kevin Baird delves into writing techniques and identifies resources that can put students on a pathway for success.
