Three Days/Three Modes

Penn State Hazleton and Wilkes-Barre in collaboration with the Penn State Lehigh Valley Writing Project presents Three Days/Three ModesAn Academy for Implementing the Common Core State Standards in Literacy.

This three-day academy offers all K-12 educators across all grade levels and content areas an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Literacy, specifically writing, and how the standards affect classroom practices. Through an exploration of the CCSS in writing, participants will:

  • Learn how to integrate the CCSS through classroom writing in rich and meaningful ways;
  • Identify, analyze, and understand the curricular possibilities of the three modes (argument, informative, narrative);
  • Learn and develop writing-to-learn techniques across all content areas;
  • Design lesson plans for implementing the CCSS within the existing curriculum.
Comments from 2013 participants included:
CCSS is not the enemy! It has the domains inside – we only need to pull them out.”
I like how the standards are K-12 because it sets a goal that is met at the ability of the child to move forward. Then each year is an increasing of maturity for their writing. It makes it seem very achievable.”
I want to familiarize my students more with the Common Core State Standards so that they understand why we do the things we do in the classroom.”
