I have to be honest. Teaching writing is tough. Each year, I set out to build a community of writers, and it is no easy task. One of the toughest things for my students is writing endings. They always start out with catchy beginnings only to get bogged down and just stop at the END. How many writing pieces have you read with words END scribble at bottom? Yes, I know it END. I always tell my students that they do have to tell me its END. I should know its END if theyre writing good ending! The first time I see this in students writing, I write END on a piece of paper, crumbled it up, and throw it in the trash. It is like a mini ceremony to say goodbye to END, and it sends a strong message! Barry Lane says it best in his book Revisers Toolbox: Dont write Endings, find them. Endings grow from beginnings and reveal themselves through clues within the story, characters, or ideas. I typically follow the Writers Workshop model in my classroom, as I have found most success with this management style. We always spend quite a bit of time writing narratives, as I believe this genre is most fun for students. It allows them to be creative, and it helps me to identify their voice as writer. To start our mini-unit on writing endings, I give my students pre-assessment of substandards to figure out where their knowledge is of writing endings. These substandard writing assessments are from my English Language Arts Assessments and Teaching Notes for grades 3-6. I call them writing partial completes in each of my Assessments. For each writing substandard, I include writing passages that are not complete. Students must complete writing to show their knowledge of standard. You can see for this substandard assessment above, ending is left out for students to complete. Once I pre-assess students, I can then quickly check their work to figure out what I need to modify or differentiate in my teaching. Once I hand back their pre-Assessments, they document their scores in their Student Data Tracking Binders, rate their levels of understanding of standard, and we begin! We start our lesson by addressing standards so students know where they are heading with their learning. The great thing about this substandard is that it is extremely open END. As long as students provide some type of closure or conclusion that follows from narrated experiences or events, they will meet the standard. The way in which students can get there is endless. The main thing I focus on when teaching Endings is to notice different endings in all of the literature that we read. Most of time, students just finish the book without any reflection on different strategies the author uses to END the story. You sound like a very dedicated teacher and very resourceful. I echo the praise above.

Nearpod

Election is relevant across all subjects. This fall, consider framing lessons around the presidential election and using Nearpod to make these experiences more engaging. Here are just a few ideas: in math, you can have students calculate electoral college votes. The president will need 270 votes to win. What are different paths to get there? You could also look at math that determines electoral votes your state has. In ELA, you can have students write argumentative essays about topics central to this year's election. Have them research sides of issue and construct their own argument based on facts. Using historical resources like our Voting Rights Act lesson, adapt from Teaching Tolerance, compare past and present Americans are able to participate in government.

MetaMetrics - Lexile Word Lists

Use PowerV to develop vocabulary lists for books or texts so educators can teach: harder words that are above the Lexile measure of surrounding text. W ords appear more frequently in texts compared to other texts and are important for understanding themes and topics. Words where students can apply base word knowledge to expand their vocabulary to different forms of word. Words that are academic and important for school success. Create vocabulary lists for large quantities of texts. Develop lists by specifying different Lexile ranges from the same text to meet the needs of students with different Lexile measures. Access vocabulary lists fo r over thousands of titles with the Lexile title Database. Lexile PowerV is also available as an add-on service for Lexile text measurement.
