Learning Targets

  • I can explain the content, format, and structure of the English Language Arts (ELA) CCSS and use this information to develop explicit learning targets collaboratively with cooperating teachers in literacy instruction.
  • I can describe and utilize high leverage instructional literacy strategies to engage and support students in meeting the ELA CCSS.
  • I can describe the difference between accommodation and modifications as it aligns with the CCSS in ELA
  • I can explain CCSS assessment strategies and use them to develop a purposeful assessment that measures students’ CCSS literacy skills.
