Session 3 of the Core Task implementation Project continued to take well-vetted instructional materials through the Plan-Do-Study-Act cycle. The session allowed for opportunities to reflect with peers, share ideas and resources, and have conversations around “focus” students. Teachers reviewed the In Common writing resource and watched a lesson demonstration from kindergarten teacher Angela Bibby.
The session also included a video (linked in the PowerPoint) of Dr. Timothy Shanahan, former President of the International Reading Association, sharing the limitations of single factor tests—i.e. standardized reading tests.
