This week, fifth grade teacher teams, from Washoe’s 63 elementary schools, have been training on Shift 5: Writing to Sources. The training, which addresses the NV-DOE required formative writing task, integrates discussion around the CCSS and SBAC rubrics as well as exploring a comprehensive writing lesson aligned with the BAP resource, “Black Cowboys, Wild Horses.” Participants are encouraged to try the lesson and reflect upon their experience by joining the group “Formative Writing” and using code: spgtcm.
