About the Author:

Consulting Description



Kathy Glass is a former teacher who consults and presents nationally with K-12 teachers and administrators at schools, districts, conferences, and county offices of education. She offers a blend of professional development (PD) topics to target audiences in areas affecting curriculum and instruction. To deliver customized PD, she assists educators with strategic planning to determine objectives. Then she tailors PD based on requested topics such as, but not limited to:

· highlights of the ELA Common Core Standards

· implementation of the ELA Common Core or other standards-based curriculum using a backward design approach

· essential understandings and guiding questions to frame curriculum and instruction

· differentiated tools and instructional strategies

· pre-, formative, summative, and self-assessments

· alignment of six-traits writing instruction and assessment to curriculum goals

· unit and yearlong curriculum maps

· text-dependent questions to facilitate close reading, and more.

To help educators directly translate what she presents into effective classroom practice that impacts students, Kathy can provide a variety of PD opportunities (e.g., presentations, lesson demonstrations and modeling, coaching, collaborative unit design, etc.).

She is the author of six books: Mapping Comprehensive Units to the English Language (ELA) Arts Common Core Standards, 6-12 (May, 2013); Mapping Comprehensive Units to the ELA Common Core Standards, K-5 (© 2012); Lesson Design for Differentiated Instruction, Grades 4-9 (©2009); Staff Development Guide for the Parallel Curriculum (©2009); Curriculum Mapping: A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Curriculum Year Overviews (©2007); and Curriculum Design for Writing Instruction: Creating Standards-Based Lesson Plans and Rubrics (©2005). In addition, Glass has served as a reader and reviewer for Reader’s Handbook: A Student Guide for Reading and Learning (2002, Great Source Education Group) and as a contributing writer and consultant for the Heath Middle Level Literature series (1995, DC Heath and Co).

Review:

"Kathy′s book is relevant for teachers, administrators and policymakers as we ramp up to the implementation of Common Core State Standards. Kathy Glass takes the daunting task of reorganizing curriculum and assessments to the new English Language Arts standards and provides clear strategies to make the instructional shift. Her articulation of the new ELA standards combined with templates, rubrics, and samples of formative and interim task assessments will guide teachers through successful implementation." (Tracy A. Huebner, Senior Research Associate 2012-01-25)

“This book is accessible, easy to follow, and has practical application. The author merges the practices of backward design, curriculum mapping, differentiating instruction, and standards-driven teaching into one usable tool.” (Alesha M. Moreno-Ramirez, K-6 Literacy Consultant 2011-10-24)

"This book is a rich and detailed guide for mapping comprehensive units to the ELA CSS. With a laser focus, the author cuts to the heart of what we need to know, understand, and do, while validating best instructional practices we may already be using. She provides a wealth of examples for better understanding CCSS and aligning comprehensive units to them." (Diane McIver, Principal 2011-11-21)

“This easy-to-use, step by step guide really makes the process of mapping and curriculum development using the ELA Common Core Standards accessible and seamless. It is an excellent tool for a Professional Learning Community and for new and veteran teachers.”

(Johnna Becker, 4th Grade Teacher and District Beginning Teachers Support and Assessment Support Provider 2011-12-20)

“This book is a rich resource that immerses teachers in the new ELA Common Core Standards, providing them with a practical, quality instrument to plan exciting, content-rich units of study. With effective tools, examples and processes to plan, assess and differentiate instruction, she enables teachers to design lessons and units so that all students achieve to their highest potential.” (Lori Musso, Curriculum Services Administrator 2011-12-20)

“This practical and timely book prepares the practitioner to take concrete steps to align curriculum with the CCSS. This resource provides a lot of practical tools and advice for stepping up our work in the elementary grades.”
(Rochelle DeMuccio, Coordinator, English Language Arts and Reading 2011-10-24)
