writing
Writing
  • Style over substance - A technically well written paper, that’s boring, will score poorly.
  • There is an expectation that errors will be present. The state views writing as a first draft. Only meaning changing errors matter.
  • * Writer’s craft matters
  • State doesn’t care what they write about. Ex. Festivus
  • Letter format doesn’t matter - it’s an essay.
  • All writing tasks can use compositional risks.
  • Elaboration is really important. Layered elaboration is even better. No lists.
  • Get my attention, keep my attention, leave me thinking. (bookend the response)
reading
Reading
  • No writer’s craft
  • You must clearly demonstrate that you:
    • 1 read
    • 2 understood
    • 3 interacted with text
    • 4 extended beyond text
slide10
OEQ
  • Open-ended is more about thinking than anything else.
  • Stem language is really important - it signals to the reader that you are thinking.
  • Students should know stem language walking into the test. Don’t be subtle - scorer may miss it otherwise.
  • Ex. Author states…, According to the text…, In the text it says…
  • This shows… (a stem that shows you are thinking) It shows you read, are thinking & processing & can do something with the information.
connections extending beyond the text
Connections (Extending beyond the text)
  • A weak connection (ex. I also have a dog…) can be salvaged as long as it’s brought back to the text. Ex. Just like in the text…, similar to the author…
  • Book a round trip flight
  • Boomerang
