INTRODUCTION: 3rd Grade Teachers Presenting ELA Curriculum Night: Danielle Spain Danielle Cooper Bethany Ryfiak Suzanne Williams Mollie Grady Ashley Lancaster Taylor Curtis S. Williams UNDERSTANDING READ 3D REPORTS: The Text Reading Comprehension Score (TRC) is derived from 3

scores: Accuracy/Fluency: Fluency is the rate at which a student reads minus their errors. Accuracy is decoding unfamiliar words and self-correcting misread words. Oral Comprehension: Responding orally to 5 questions about the text. Written Comprehension: Responding in writing to 2 questions about the text. Teachers score the two written comprehension questions separately but to use the score of the lowest question as the student's written comprehension score. If your student is not proficient in written comprehension, the teacher is

prompted to move the student down a level before continuing the assessment. TRC Cut Points for Proficiency Beginning of Year M Middle of Year O End of Year P Read 3 D Chart Click to view chart S. Williams WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP YOUR CHILD?: Read together everyday at home. On the back of your childs TRC sheet are some activities we

recommend that can be done just about anywhere. For example: Question Modeling When reading with your child, encourage him or her to ask questions by asking your own questions about the book aloud: "I wonder, why ______? Why did ____________ do that? What is going to happen next? Title Talk Ask your child to read the title of a story and to think about it. Is it a good title for this story? Why? Break the Story Down Ask your child to describe the beginning, middle, and endCOOPER of a story. READ TO ACHIEVE RTA Live Binder

RTA includes 12 reading standards. Students must demonstrate understanding on at least 3 passages per standard to show proficiency. This is one pathway for students to show proficiency for reading in 3rd grade. Other pathways include: Passing the Beginning of Year ELA Test Passing the End of Year ELA Test Level P or higher on Read 3D Reading Lexile 725+ COOPER ACCELERATED READING: Each nine weeks your child will have a goal set

based on data gathered from STAR tests and individual progress. Students will be given a book level range. (Ex. 2.63.7) There will be a specific weekly goal for students to meet. At the end of the nine weeks, students will be rewarded if they meet the goal with 80% test accuracy. Lancaster AR NOTES FROM MEDIA: Students should be assigned goals based on 30 minutes of reading and their ZPD range on the STAR test.

Students should read a combination of Fiction and Non-Fiction. 3rd grade has required 6 NF books per nine weeks. A better balance of reading between fiction and non-fiction correlates to higher reading scores on EOGs :) Once students have met their goals, they are not required to take AR tests on their free choices. They should not test on any book outside of their ZPD range unless they are trying out for Battle of the Books. Lancaster HELPFUL ELA DOCUMENTS: TRC Questions Stems Higher Level Thinking Questions
