Commissioned by David Coleman and Student Achievement Partners, these units were developed in 2010 to provide a model of CCSS-aligned instruction. Each unit provides teachers with multiple ways to engage students in each task.
We developed the English language arts task sets below as part of our work with the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) in 2011-2012. Tasks sets are aligned to the Common Core State Standards and are designed to prepare students for the type of performance-based assessments that will appear on many of the new state assessments. These task sets are great for any teacher who is working with students on reading and writing about complex texts.
