Description: This workshop is designed to help grade 4-8 teachers Navigate the Common Core ELA by exploring ELA performance assessments using links to outdoor learning experiences. This integrated approach applies the ELA standards to rich content rather than teaching the skills in isolation.

The facilitators will model ELA performance tasks as a springboard into field studies and project based learning. The field study provides the anchor experience for the ELA performance task and serves as an introduction to the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

During the workshop teachers will:
- build on Common Core ELA Standards and Assessment background knowledge, 
- gain experience integrating NGSS with ELA standards, and
- walk away with a tool kit that helps customize performance tasks for curriculum.

Nancy Skerritt, M.A.T., PEI Faculty, retired Assistant Superintendent for Teaching & Learning in the Tahoma School District, has authored & provides in-service on curriculum units and performance tasks and assessment supporting field studies, NGSS & Common Core.

Margaret Tudor, Ph.D in Science Education, as Executive Director of the Pacific Education Institute (PEI), a 501c3, leads the statewide effort to ensure all K-12 students get outside the classroom to learn rigorous Field STEM.
