The Journey Questions. . .
• What is it we want students to learn?*
• ELA Common Core Standards
• Essential, Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
• How will we know if each student has learned it?*
• Frequent, team developed, common formative assessments
• How will we respond when some students don’t learn it?*
• Timely, directive, systematic intervention
• How can we extend and enrich the learning for students
who have demonstrated proficiency?*
• Timely enriched content, extended activities
• What is the process for facilitating the learning?
• Instructional framework – Gradual Release of Responsibility (Workshop model)

Building a Continuum of
Learning for Students
Where are my students heading?
What must my students learn
during this lesson so they will be
prepared for the next lessons?
What did my students
learn in previous lessons?
How do you define
“curriculum”?
What is a curriculum?
CESA 7 Definition of curriculum:
A comprehensive content-driven scope
and sequence that organizes the
Common Core State Standards in a meaningful
way and provides a framework
for
teaching, learning and
assessment from kindergarten through
grade 12.

Portrait of a
Literate Student
What is College and Career
Readiness?
• “ACT defines college readiness as acquisition of the knowledge
and skills a student needs to enroll and succeed in creditbearing, first-year courses at a postsecondary institution, such
as a two- or four-year college, trade school, or technical
school. Simply stated, readiness for college means not
needing to take remedial courses in postsecondary education
or training programs.” (Washington Post, 4/29/2010)

Student Learning Targets
“The most effective teaching and the most meaningful
student learning happen when teachers design the right
learning target for today’s lesson and use it along with
their students to aim for and assess understanding”
(Moss & Brookhart, 2012)
Student Learning Targets
• Guide learning
• Written in student friendly language
• Describes the lesson sized chunk of information, skills, and
reasoning processes that students will come to know
• “what students are actually doing to learn and achieve during
today’s lesson” (Moss & Brookhart, 2012)

Learning Targets
Focus on . . .
Determining Student Learning Targets:
Example
RL.9-10.1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis
of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
Brainstorm “I Can” Statements from unpacked standard:
• I can use text annotations in order to better understand a text and cite
textual evidence.
• I can identify explicit details in a text that help me better understand the
text.
• I can make inferences when reading a text that help support my
comprehension.
• I can choose the most important pieces of textual evidence that will help
me to analyze the text.
• I can build a strong analysis of a text when I can cite and prioritize
evidence from the text.
IM Map
Student
Learning Targets
I can use annotate text in order to better understand a text and cite
textual evidence.
I can identify explicit details in a text that help me better understand the
text.
I can make inferences when reading a text that help support my
comprehension.
I can choose the most important pieces of textual evidence that will help
me to analyze the text.
I can build a strong analysis of a text when I can cite and prioritize
evidence from the text.
Review Learning Target
Process
Review the unpacked standard for knowledge (e.g.,
concepts, generalizations, principals), skills, and
understanding
Consider the “lesson-sized” chunks in the unpacking
State the lesson-sized chunks in the form of student
friendly learning targets (“I can. . .”) in the
appropriate column of the IM Map
Example: Writing Learning Targets in
Student Friendly Language
Guiding Questions
Today’s Lesson on “identifying the
main idea of a paragraph”
What will I be able to do when I’ve
finished this lesson?
I can choose the right main
idea and explain why it was
more important than the
other choices.
What idea, topic, or subject is
important for me to learn and
understand so that I can hit the target?
I will learn that a main idea is the most
important thing the writer of a
paragraph is trying to tell me.
What will I do to show that I understand I will read paragraphs and choose the
the target, and how well will I have to
main idea for each paragraph from a
do it?
list.
Collaborative Team Work
Task:
• Collaboratively create Inquiry Module Map for each module
by using the process modeled during Focus Lesson.
