Curriculum Design for Writing Instruction by Kathy Tuchman Glass
Book DescriptionFrom standards identification and translation to assessment, Glass leads the reader step-by-step through the writing process and the development of an effective standards-based writing curriculum. Using Glass' method, standards act as a solid foundation or framework, and teachers are encouraged to build as creatively upon that foundation as possible - designing lessons and units that are innovative, engaging, and which still produce measurable gains. Her four part process is as follows: 1. Identification of content-standards for writing: What do I want my students to know and be able to do? 2. Creating a teacher rubric with a clear set of criteria for writing assessment: What are the key criteria for achieving these standards and assessing students? 3. Crafting a student checklist to guide students through the unit and self-assess: What do students need to know and learn as they progress through the unit and how will they be assessed? 4. Designing lessons to achieve standards: How do I help my students meet the criteria? The numerous strategies, examples and photocopiables focus on writing at the primary level, but are easily adapted for use by secondary teachers of science and social studies.

Author Biography - Kathy Tuchman Glass
Consulting Description Kathy Glass is a former teacher who consults and presents nationally with K-12 teachers and administrators at schools, districts, conferences, and county offices of education. She offers a blend of professional development (PD) topics to target audiences in areas affecting curriculum and instruction. To deliver customized PD, she assists educators with strategic planning to determine objectives. Then she tailors PD based on requested topics such as, but not limited to: * highlights of the ELA Common Core Standards * implementation of the ELA Common Core or other standards-based curriculum using a backward design approach * essential understandings and guiding questions to frame curriculum and instruction * differentiated tools and instructional strategies * pre-, formative, summative, and self-assessments * alignment of six-traits writing instruction and assessment to curriculum goals * unit and yearlong curriculum maps * text-dependent questions to facilitate close reading, and more. To help educators directly translate what she presents into effective classroom practice that impacts students, Kathy can provide a variety of PD opportunities (e.g., presentations, lesson demonstrations and modeling, coaching, collaborative unit design, etc.). She is the author of six books: Mapping Comprehensive Units to the English Language (ELA) Arts Common Core Standards, 6-12 (May, 2013); Mapping Comprehensive Units to the ELA Common Core Standards, K-5 ((c) 2012); Lesson Design for Differentiated Instruction, Grades 4-9 ((c)2009); Staff Development Guide for the Parallel Curriculum ((c)2009); Curriculum Mapping: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Curriculum Year Overviews ((c)2007); and Curriculum Design for Writing Instruction: Creating Standards-Based Lesson Plans and Rubrics ((c)2005).
