Workshop 10: What are the Common Core instructional shifts in Reading/Writing & Social Studies? How do we see the instructional shifts reflected in sample assessment questions?
Module 4, Workshop 10 integrates Common Core instructional shifts in Reading/Writing & Social Studies. The workshop trains program administrators and adult educators to develop test readiness strategies to further cement skills in these content areas. After the workshop, instructors will be able to deconstruct and reduce the instructional shifts into workable objectives for students.
Workshop 10 activities include exploring and analyzing the dimensions of prior knowledge, reading comprehension, and reading engagement in sample TASC exam questions. Participants will also compare and analyze old GED test items with TASC items that cover similar content.
