Student Outcomes
1. Writing
W3.1 Determine the purpose and audience for communicating in writing.
W3.2 Use simple planning strategies to identify and organize a limited number of ideas to support a single purpose (to convey personal experience, meet a specific need, or respond to recent learning), and produce a legible and comprehensible draft.
W3.3 Appropriately use mostly familiar vocabulary (based on personal experience and learning) and basic text structure of simple steps/instructions/commands or a paragraph to convey ideas with several supporting details/examples reflecting some attention to audience.
W3.4 Use simple revision strategies to monitor effectiveness by re-reading and revising during the writing process and making revisions to a first and final draft based on review and feedback from others. Demonstrate beginning attention to clarity, descriptiveness, personal voice, and appropriateness of text for the intended audience.
W3.5 Make several simple edits of grammar (such as simple tense agreement), spelling, and punctuation (such as periods, capital letters, and some commas), sentence structure (such as compound and some complex sentences), language usage, and text structure using tools such as spelling word lists and simple editing checklists.
2. Goal Setting
G3.1 Monitor progress on educational goals as they relate to their roles as students, workers, citizens, and family members.
