Additional Resources

Text-Dependent Question (TDQ) Bank – This TDQ bank includes multiple question frames organized by reading-literature and reading-informational text standard. Some standards do not have examples since it’s completely dependent on the texts being used as to what the question could be (e.g., standards asking students to compare texts).

1st Grade – Standards at a Glance – This document contains the ELA 1st grade standards only.

Sample Reading Tasks – CCSS Appendix B Excerpts – In order to best connect reading to writing, the K-2 reading performance tasks described in Appendix B of the CCSS document was excerpted and organized by grade-level in order to help provide teachers with examples of reading tasks that could be turned into writing tasks.

Writing Graphic Organizer Handout – This graphic organizer was used during the pre-service training and is available here as a master copy to be downloaded.

Standards Alignment Guide – 1st Grade – This resource may be used for 3 primary functions: 1) the determination of standards to align to various texts by having the user ask him/herself a series of questions; 2) the creation of text-dependent questions through sample question frames; and 3) the identification of clear learning objectives tied to specific reading standards. The sample questions and deconstructed tasks found within the document in the second and third columns respectively were modified from work produced by the Delaware Department of Education.

Resources to Support CCSS Reading-Foundational Skills – This document was intended to provide additional resources for student attainment of phonological awareness skills. All kindergarten training attendees were provided a copy as well as one copy for each first grade team per site.
