Teachers and administrators of grades 6-12 met together on October 5th to learn about the changes to the NYS ELA standards that were recently adopted by the Board of Regents on September 11th, 2017 under the name, “New York State Next Generation English Language Arts Learning Standards.” The session was co-facilitated by
from the Broome-Tioga BOCES literacy team.
Participants examined the revised standards, acquainting themselves with the structure of the standards document, as well as with new introductory documents that accompany the standards. Discussion included the changes to the grade level standards as well as the clarification provided in the ancillary materials, and the timeline for implementation of the new standards. Participants planned for conversation points to take back to their respective districts.
Our intent is to continue this regional discussion about the changes in the newly adopted standards.
