Common Core Performance Task Planner

Grade-level performance task planners provide a framework for the design of units/multi-day lessons around a prescribed set of Common Core ELA/Literacy standards. The macro-enabled document prompts users to generate standards-based text-dependent questions as the basis for whole class discussion, small group discussion, and/or assessment items. Constructed with complete fidelity to PARCC's updated Fall 2014 Assessment Blueprints, this planner will be a significant step forward on the Common Core path for teachers and students.

Common Core Aligned Writing Rubrics

Dr. Dea’s popular grade-level rubrics include a teacher friendly scoring guide and student friendly reflection checklist. The rubrics are aligned to Common Core ELA/Literacy Standards and PARCC's July 2014 revised rubric for PBA assessment scoring. One single grade-level rubric can be used for argument, informative/explanatory, and narrative writing. The rubrics also list Common Core Language Standards specific to each grade level as a reminder of the grammatical structures to teach and evaluate during unit instruction.

Unit Planners

Grounded in backwards design, Dr. Dea’s Interactive Common Core Unit Planner moves teachers through a logical series of steps in the design if a Common Core unit or multi-day lesson. 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.

Note: Microsoft Word interactive forms are not compatible documents with Mac computers. Only purchase this planner if you have access to a compatible device for full use of the Word Form.
