Writing Instructional Intervention Supplement, Grades K-3.
Mississippi State Dept. of Education, Jackson.
This supplement is a resource for helping kindergarten through third grade students show increasing competence in understanding and using standard English to produce oral and written communication that is readily understood by others. It notes that kindergarten through third graders are expected to demonstrate continuous progress toward the use of penmanship, grammar, mechanics, and standard English in the context of writing and speaking. The supplement includes benchmarks, assessments, and instructional intervention strategies for each grade. Benchmarks in the supplement outline what students should know and be able to do to meet mandated competencies; informal and observational assessments determine if benchmarks are being met; and instructional intervention strategies assist a child in meeting a benchmark. A list of sentence patterns, which represent the order in which words appear in a sentence, is included, as are sample writing assessment rubrics. A list of online resources contains 37 Web sites, and a glossary lists 42 technology terms. (PM)
