8th Grade Historical Literacy consists of two 43 minute class periods. Writing is one 43 minute block and reading is another. The teacher has picked themes based on social studies standards, and a read-aloud novel based on social studies serves as the mentor text for writing and reading skills. More social studies content is addressed in reading through teaching nonfiction reading skills and discussion. Standards reflect CCSS ELA, Reading, and Social Studies Standards for History.

I have used the Keeper of the Culture Project as a final assessment in Native American Literature. Students have the opportunity to follow up on a major theme in Mary Crow Dog's autobiography Lakota Woman: the importance of Native people embracing their identities and preserving traditions and culture. Students will interview and write about a person who is keeping the culture alive in some way and may invite the person to come in and speak or record an interview with that person.

Literature Circle Collaboration and Participation Rubrics
Rating

These rubrics can be used when students are working in literature circle groups to assess their collaboration and public speaking skills. There is one rubric for the teacher to assess student preparedness and contribution to the group as well as speaking and listening skills. Another rubric has been adapted to allow for students to peer-assess and self-assess at the end of a literature circle cycle. The rubrics provide clear expectations for group collaboration aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Speaking & Listening.

Read the Fine Print
Rating

This paper opens a larger conversation about what must be done to realize opportunities presented by the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and the literacy standards in other subject areas. It emphasizes the simultaneous challenges and opportunities for ELLs.The paper emphasizes that texts are approached differently for different purposes. Students need opportunities to approach texts with these varied purposes in mind. It also highlights how ELLs may be well served by opportunities to explore and justify their own textual hypotheses, even if their initial interpretations diverge from those of the teacher.

A mini-poetry project allows students to practice public speaking, listening, and critical analysis skills. Students practice formative assessment throughout the unit by participating in peer assessments. Students use accountable talk to provide classmates with constructive feedback based on anecdotal notes taken during the podcast.  Students also participate in self-assessment and think about what skills they need to practice to meet proficiency.

This is a Monday assignment in my Native American Lit. Class. Students read articles on current topics in Indian Country and write about or present their findings to the class on Tuesdays to spark discussion. At the beginning of the year, I usually show a video or clip about a current hot topic to gain their interest. This year I showed the documentary AWAKE about the Dakota Access Pipeline and the protests there, which prompted debate and discussion, and ignited their interest in topics related to Native Americans.
