In order to prepare students for NJSLA, instructors will have to learn how to create and use Technology-Enhanced Constructed Responses (TECRs) and Evidence-Based Selected Responses (EBSRs). This workshop begins with an overview of how to evaluate and select both anchor and additional texts “worthy of study” from which to construct EBSRs and TECRs. Next, the presenter will introduce activities and resources that instructors can use to prepare students to complete these novel and challenging items. Districts and schools can select from a variety of grade-level configurations (3-5, 3-8, 6-8, 6-12, and HS); workshop materials and activities will be selected to address students’ developmental levels.
