Module Supplementary Example


As part of a statewide School Library System initiative, a group of school librarians and teachers met at Capital Region BOCES to discuss supplemental/alternative texts and performance task for Grade 3, Module 1

We discussed the ELA CCSS that are part of the modules, the Central and Recommended texts, and what ESIFC skills were best suited for this unit.  We also looked at how the content aligned to the Grade 3 Social Studies Framework.

We selected texts based on the Module Unit that emphasizes the importance of reading and education in cultures around the world, and the sacrifices and risks people sometimes make in order to receive an education.

Performance Task alternatives to the "Bookmark" in the module were also submitted.  It was decided that, whenever possible, tasks should be be Inquiry-driven.  Assessments for measuring the Performance Tasks are also given.
