The PLC CFA model vs CCSS unit format
Our district has pushed the PLC CFA model in which each level creates the same assessments to give students. These assessments isolate standards and strands to see what students know, so we have units separated into short stories, novels, poetry, nonfiction, epic, and research. However, from what I can tell, the CCSS units incorporate elements from all of these sections and brings them together thematically instead of separating it into strands. How do we take what we have and revise assessments to meet the challenge of the CCSS. I feel like the two models of teaching do not really connect in terms of assessments and planning. I need help figuring out how to take what I have and adjusting it to fit the needs of CCSS.
