Writing Instruction for Learning Synthesis


alphabet-140054_1280Writing, and associated Speaking and Presentation, is the method by which we show our thinking.  How do we plan for and execute instruction at the deepest levels of cognition (DOK 3 and 4) using writing and speaking to synthesize learning and assess student performance?  New data shows that students are increasing their time spent writing, but teacher feedback to students as well as the level of precision feedback and time spend editing are key next steps.  In this webinar for the edWeb.net Implementing the Common Core State Standards community, presenter Kevin Baird explored the findings of the NAEP in Writing, as well as newly released assessment items to build a clear picture of what Learning Synthesis looks like with College & Career Ready standards, and how we get there through the process of writing, critique, and editing
