Transcript of Kindergartners,1st, & 2nd Graders as Researchers

K-2 Students as Researchers? W.K-2.7. Kindergartners, 1st graders,and 2nd graders must "participate in shared research and writing projects." What do the Common Core State Standards say? So what does that mean? Students need to be taught how to scan the information that has been provided for them... this information can be words, pictures or digital sources Also students need know how to recall information from their own background knowledge and pull out the pieces that are needed to answer the research question. You expect me to do what? W.K-1.8
With guidance and support from adults,recall information from experiences or gather information from provided sources The students will need items such as task charts,graphic organizers, check lists to help them learn to work together. Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students are required to participate in shared research projects. They need to understand their role (job on the team)in the research project and how they will contribute...the work they will do...from the begining to the end. Unpacking the Common Core State Standards What else? In these lower grades students should be working with research that has been provided for them. Students do this work with prompting and support. Unpacking the standards will help teachers have a better understanding of what each and means and what student should know. Why unpack the standards? If we are going to use the standards to teach English Language Arts and Mathematics, then we must understand what they are asking our students to know or do. The Commom Core State Standards are our guide to planning, teaching, and assessing students in ELA & MTH. Reading Informational Texts?
No Problem! RI.4.1
Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. RI 4.2
Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text. RI 4.3
Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text. Fourth grade students are required to refer to specific examples when explaining the text and drawing conclusions. Students must identify the main idea and find the most important details that strengthen the main idea. They must also explain the text in their own words. At this level, students tell how or why historical events, scientific ideas or “how to” procedures happened and use the text to support their answers. Training Goals:

1. Unpack the ELA and MTH CCSS
2. Write 2 CCSS Lesson Plan What's Next?

1. Develop a training for your peers for EP.
2. Participate in up to 3 video taping sessions. WIIFM?
1. $1,000.00 stipend
2. $500.00 worth of supplies
3. Opportunity to Lead ELA MTH RIGOR Relevance Relationships 3 Rs: What are some prompts or questions student should be able to answer? ELA ELA MTH MTH What is the main idea of this text? How
do you know? What are the important ideas in this
text? Show where you found them in
the text. Summarize the text from beginning to
end in a few sentences. Which step comes first? After that? What happened first? What happened
after that? Can you tell me how these ideas are the
same? Can you tell me how they are
different? Think about these historical events.
Tell how they are connected.
