Collaborative planning around next steps
Three instructional shifts
1. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction
2. Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both
literary and informational
3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic language
ELA/Literacy guidance documents
• Released in May 2013 and posted to tncore.org:

ds.aspx
• Optional guidance to help districts incorporate the instructional shifts and turn over
curriculum during this year’s transition to new standards
• Implementing the instructional shifts and focusing on the following three priorities
will provide students with the best preparation for PARCC assessments in 2014-15
and the TCAP Writing Assessment in 2013-14:
1. Stop teaching the dropped SPI’s
2. Prioritize readings of rich, complex text multiple times and for varying purposes
3. Give students sequenced, text-dependent questions and writing tasks that
require them to cite evidence, simultaneously developing students’ reading,
writing, speaking, listening, and thinking skills

claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using
valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.

PARCC sample item: grade 7 RST
http://www.parcconline.org/samples/english-languageartsliteracy/grade-7-elaliteracy
You have read three texts describing Amelia Earhart. All
three include the claim that Earhart was a brave,
courageous person.[…]
Consider the argument each author uses to demonstrate
Earhart’s bravery. Write an essay that analyzes the
strength of the arguments about Earhart’s bravery in at
least two of the texts. Remember to use textual
evidence to support your ideas.
