Description

Mastering the TASC Essay: What Students Need to Know And How Teachers Can Help (3 hours)

Note: These workshops are led by NYSED Teacher Leaders and can be taken as stand-alone professional development, but content and teaching strategies will connect across workshops, so teachers will benefit from attending multiple sessions. Teachers will leave with materials ready for the classroom. The location will be announced at a later date. Register now to reserve your seat.

What does the TASC Essay Require of Students?

What does the TASC essay require of students? In this workshop, we will look at TASC scoring rubrics and anchor papers for both the informational and argumentative essay to answer that question. We will explore the use of model essays, graphic organizers, text frames, Teacher Leader-created essay prompts, and training videos as possible tools and resources for helping students organized and write well-developed essays. Finally, we'll explore and discuss the role of constructive teacher feedback in helping students progress as writers.
