Grade_K_CoverCommon Core Aligned Writing Rubrics

Dr. Dea’s popular Common Core grade-level rubrics come with a teacher friendly scoring guide and a student friendly reflection checklist (Note: the previews are watermarked with the Partner In Education logo–purchased rubrics have no watermark image). The rubrics are aligned to Common Core ELA/Literacy Standards and PARCC’s July 2015 revisions on both the Evidence Tables and within the draft rubric. A single grade-level rubric can be used for evaluating argument/opinion, informative/explanatory, and narrative writing. Dr. Dea has also included the Common Core Language Standards for each grade level within the teacher rubric. Teachers can use that list as a reminder of what kinds of grammatical structures to teach and evaluate in application during the unit instruction. Note: rubric copyright expressly allows purchasers of the materials to duplicate and distribute rubric & checklist materials within their classrooms.

Grade_3_CoverCommon Core Performance Task Planner

Dr. Dea’s grade-level performance task planners are interactive forms that support educators as they write local assessments. Aligned to the Common Core and the most recent edits to PARCC’s 2015-2016 assessment design, the planners ensure teachers are assessing standards in a manner that will help prepare students for annual achievement assessments. The form prompts users to craft standards-based text-dependent questions which can be used for individual assessment, whole class discussion, or small group discussion. Constructed with complete fidelity to PARCC’s updated 2015-2016 Assessment Blueprints, this planner will be a significant step forward on the Common Core path for teachers and students.

The planner asks teachers to consider unit assessment first and then progresses users through a series of dropdown boxes loaded with appropriate Common Core grade-level standards among the four domains: reading (includes foundational skills), writing, speaking & listening, language. This document may be used to create all new Common Core units or revise existing units to actualize standards instruction.
