    Text Dependent Analysis Training  

    Beginning with the 2014-2015 ELA-PSSA, 19% of the overall score will come from answers to ONE Text Dependent Analysis Question. This type of questioning requires that teachers understand what close reading is, how to develop text-dependent analysis questions, how to score them, how to select appropriate text for this type of questioning and how to deliver this type of instruction. The Beaver Valley Intermediate Unit has developed a 30-hour online workshop designed to address these issues. For more information, please contact Jill Martin at 724-774-7800 x3015
