We look forward to your participation in this pilot event convening higher education and high school faculty focusing on K-12 college and career-readiness standards and assessment.
The primary purpose of this meeting is to continue to connect K-12 and higher education to support development of high-quality materials for K-12 and college English Language Arts. This meeting will be a convening of English Language Arts faculty and teachers from across the state. Specifically, we will focus on the Arizona College and Career Readiness Standards and Achieve’s EQuIP rubric for evaluating quality instructional products in English Language Arts. Participants will learn how to use tools and processes to review and evaluate the quality of instructional materials (lessons and units) aligned to ACCRS. Sessions will also address preparing students for college-level writing
In preparing for this workshop, participants will be asked to engage in approximately 60-90 minutes of preparation required prior to the workshop date. This includes reviewing the Arizona College and Career Standards (ACCRS) and watching a short webinar in order to understand and review the EQuIP criterion-based rubric (Educators Evaluating Quality Instructional Products) that will be used to evaluate the quality of lesson(s) and units. This will allow participants to be prepared for the morning session during the workshop where they will engage in the guided practice and application of the rubric. This preparation is critical to engaging in the morning session. Participants will receive the information via email prior to the workshop date.
A working lunch will be provided. If you are in session, you will receive substitute reimbursement by attending the session and indicating on the sign in sheet for the day.
Parking will be free (validated) at the San Francisco Street Parking Garage.
