This training will explain the difference in Common Core Standard Writing and Illinois Assessment for Readiness expectations in Task Writing. IAR is a test that gives students the ability to build background knowledge while reading the excerpts and then asking students to compile the understanding of the readings, videos, audios, photos, poems, etc., by answering a Writing Task. IAR may ask students to write on a narrative task (NT), literary analysis task (LAT), or a research simulation task (RST). This training will allow participants to analyze and practice each of the types of tasks. Teaching children to master the task questions during the year will help them not to be blindsided when they approach the IAR testing.
Participants will be provided a catered 20 minute working lunch.
