ELA teachers to host colleagues for teacher-led discussion of next generation assessments

In partnership with the Maine DOE, the Maine Council of English Language Arts is hosting two informational Dine and Discuss sessions about Maine’s next generation assessments. Each session, one at Kennebunk High School and one in Rockland at Oceanside High School, will be facilitated by Maine teachers who participated in range finding on last year’s pilot test of the performance task full writes.

While the event will include general information about the test, the focus of the evening will be on what teachers may want to consider to help their students become comfortable with both the format and literacy content expectations of the assessment.

The Kennebunk High School session will be held on Oct. 24, and the Oceanside High School session will be held on Nov. 14, both from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Questions generated at these events will be answered in a follow-up webinar hosted by the Maine DOE. Registration can be completed online.
