From the website

 

"As part of a project for the PARCC consortium, the Institute for Learning (IFL) at the University of Pittsburgh, was asked to develop English language arts classroom task sets for Grades 3, 6 and 10 that are aligned to the new CCSS and that will prepare students for the new PARCC assessments. We would like you to visit these websites to learn about these classroom task sets. Then, please take a survey about the usefulness of this classroom task set. Your feedback will be used to improve future versions."

 

These are well-designed learning units based on the ELA CCSS and PARCC assessments. As such, for teachers interested in retooling for the PARCC asssessments, the units should prove quite helpful. For curriculum designers, the units offer an interesting template for how to revise local or state curriculum in a practical format, while focused on the new requirements. -JL

Share with teachers who worry about assigning (and assessing) endless research reports to meet the CCSS.  Excellent ideas from Joyce Valenza.

Mary Reilley Clark's insight:

Preliminary test blueprints from Smarter Balanced for ELA and math summative assessments.  There's a lot to explore here: rubrics, test blueprints, etc.  Read the appendices for examples of text used for assessment: the Dalai Lama and Marcus Aurelius, not insulation manuals!
