After reviewing the research, observing hundreds of classes, and reflecting on my own teaching practices, I've created a product called the PTA Skills Bundle that I hope will ensure efficiency and proficiency in the classroom on twenty-two literacy skills most often seen on standardized tests:
- Author's Purpose
- Cause and Effect
- Context Clues
- Fact and Opinion
- Figurative Language
- Fragments and Run Ons
- Main Idea
- Mood and Tone
- Organizational Writing Patterns
- Parts of Speech
- Point of View
- Research and Reliability
- Sentence Types
- Story Elements
- Subject Verb Agreement
- Titles of Works
- Transitional Words and Phrases
Specifically, the PTA Skills Bundle includes three research-based, best practice products (PowerPoint, Task Cards, and Assessment) that allow for instruction, practice, and progress monitoring - the three most important components of instruction.
Here’s how it works:
1) You TEACH the skill with an easy-to-understand, comprehensive instructional PowerPoint.
2) Students PRACTICE the skill as they review the content with high yield Task Cards that generate active engagement.
3) You ASSESS the skill with a Common Core-aligned assessment that will let you know in no time who is advanced, proficient, basic, and below basic.
