Getting Started, Moving Forward with the CCRS Writing Standards
These two handouts provide nine reading-writing tasks that incorporate close readings of informative or narrative texts and writing production of sentences, paragraphs, or essays. The first, Getting Started, Moving Forward, is based on trainings presented by Paula Freiermuth from Osseo Adult Education. The second, More From Achieve the Core, is based on a search of Student Writing Samples from the Achieve the Core website by Marn Frank, Literacy & STAR coordinator. Originally, they were published as a series of three articles in the ABE Connect newsletter during the spring of 2017.
