Continuum of Activities
The list below represents a continuum of activities: resources categorized by Standard/Eligible Content that teachers may use to move students toward proficiency. Using LEA curriculum and available materials and resources, teachers can customize the activity statements/questions for classroom use.
This continuum of activities offers:
- Instructional activities designed to be integrated into planned lessons
- Questions/activities that grow in complexity
- Opportunities for differentiation for each student’s level of performance
- Identify the title of a sequence of steps in a list of directions.
- Summarize what you will be asked to do in order to complete a list of directions.
- Choose one or two steps that seem unclear to you and infer what you are being asked to do.
- Observe any patterns in a sequence of steps in a list of directions.
- Keeping the same sequence of steps in a list of directions, organize the steps into different sections based on what you are being asked to do.
- Draw a conclusion about what you will learn after completing a sequence of steps in a list of directions.
- Students correctly locate the title of a list of directions.
- Students correctly put into their own words what they will have completed or what they are being asked to do in following a list of directions.
- Students read a list of directions, organizing the steps into what they understand and what they do not understand. For any steps that they do not yet understand, students use context clues, other steps, or the title to help them make an educated guess about what they will have to do.
- Students begin to analyze the sequence of steps to look for patterns in the list itself.
- Students analyze the sequence of steps in a list of directions in order to categorize the list into different sections. These may be linked to what is being asked of them, or beginning/middle/end. Students pay attention to and demonstrate understanding of turning points within the sequence itself.
- Students draw a conclusion about what they will learn, what they will have completed, or what will be difficult in completing a sequence of steps in a list of directions.
Suggested Rubric: This rubric may be used to assess a student’s overall mastery of the standard or eligible content.
