The 2023 STAAR® ReDesign Webinar Series


The NEW State of Texas Academic Assessment of Readiness (STAAR®) will ask students in grades 3-10 to write both short and extended constructed responses. This training will provide teachers of grades 3-10 with strategies to teach short constructed responses, both literary and nonliterary. The first part starts with a review of the Jane Schaffer Academic Writing terminology and process. It quickly moves into a STAAR short constructed response model, demonstrating the two planning pages for students to practice for test time implementation. The second half focuses on nonliterary, working with nonfiction passages but applying the same planning pages for consistency and success. Each step in the process is aligned with grade level Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, Assessed Curriculum, and Blueprints. In addition to the writing component on the exam, strategies include close reading for the multiple-choice sections.
