ISTEP+ ELA Prep Grades 6-10

Help and Guidance from Sandy Adams

The ISTEP+ Assessment is here. Increased rigor, depth of knowledge and analysis are an integral part of the new assessment. Text dependent questions, constructed response and critical writing are skills that must be incorporated into our classroom, beginning NOW. This workshop focuses on providing instructional strategies and resources to prepare students for the ISTEP+ Assessment. During this one day workshop, participants will:

  • Engage with instructional strategies designed to highlight rigor through depth of knowledge.
  • Review the components and blueprint for the ISTEP+ Assessment for your grade level.
  • Engage in strategies for Text Dependent Questions and Critical Writing.
  • Explore strategies that will assist teachers in supporting below basic and basic readers along with proficient and advanced readers, effectively closing the achievement gap.
Please join us as we welcome Sandy Adams and her infectious enthusiasm back to the area for this session!
