This workshop provides the background, understanding of construct, and a plethora of resources to assist science and social studies instructors to appropriately integrate NJSLA into their instructional practices. This is accomplished by connecting the History, Science and Technical Subject Standards to the requirements of NJSLA. The presenter begins with an overview of NJSLA’s Research Simulation Tasks (RSTs), Technology-Enhanced Constructed Responses (TECRs), Evidence-Based Selected Responses (EBSRs) and Prose Constructed Responses (PCRs) that are pertinent to science and social studies. Next, the workshop displays how HST instructors can apply close reading and text-dependent processes to both align with the Standards and prepare for NJSLA. Other topics that are covered include vocabulary, writing strategies, scoring processes, and using NJSLA tools. This is a must-see workshop for any school that wants to enlist the support of science and social studies instructors in a way that makes the connection between the Standards and how they can prepare for NJSLA using healthy approaches.
