21 Episode V – The Birth of STAAR After nearly 30 years of state testing, Texas announces the Next Generation of tests. Beginning in 2011-12 TAKS (the descendant of TABS, TEAMS and TAAS) will be replaced with STAAR (the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness). STAAR will be significantly more rigorous than TAKS. The change comes just as Texas approaches the 2014 deadline under AYP to reach 100% proficiency.

22 Question #2 In order to prepare for STAAR, we will have to rewrite all of our lessons and common assessments. Page 3

23 Analysis of TAKS to STAAR

They are important to preparedness for next grade level or course. Although reinforced in current grade level or course, they may be emphasized in previous year. They support college and career readiness. They play a role in preparing students for the next grade level or course but not central role. They address broad and deep ideas. They address narrowly defined ideas.

35 Question #3 TAKS is to a relay race as STAAR is to the 100-yard dash. Page 3

36 Aligning the Curriculum Six activities Complete one activity at a time. Do no move to the next activity until prompted to do so. READ each instructional piece very carefully. PERFORM each activity as if you were an elementary student. RECORD your answers on a separate piece of paper not on the laminated copies.

37 Activity #5 Activity #2 Activity #1 Activity #4 Activity #6 Activity #3

38 Written Curriculum Tested Curriculum Taught Curriculum When creating your playbook, how often do you look at the skills players learned last year vs. those they will practice next year?

49 Question #5 STAAR test items will contain a greater number of items that have a higher cognitive complexity and will be developed to more closely match the cognitive complexity level evident in the TEKS; therefore, it is crucial that teachers focus more closely on the content of their grade level/course. Is this a trick question? Page 3

67 Jodi Denton jodi@lead4ward.com Vertical Alignment Alignment of Cognitive and Content Varying the Context Todays Journey…

68 Varying the Context of the Problem (RAH)² (AH)³ + [ROMA (1+MA)] + (GA)² + (OOH)(LA)²

69 Varying the Context of the Problem Using the number line, skip count by fives. High five four friends in the room, counting how many fingers you touched. Using a handful of nickels, count the value of the coins. Using the number line, skip count by fives starting at the number three. Using the number line, start at the number 45 and skip count backwards. Calculate the number of sides on three pentagons.

70 Varying the Context of the Content (example) Elementary Math Use standard units to find the perimeter of a shape 3.11B Mrs. Green wants to tile around her swimming pool. How many feet of tile will she need to complete the project? What is the perimeter for the given rectangle? Utilizing your ruler, measure the perimeter of the given polygon to the nearest inch. 16 inches 2 inches If the perimeter of the rectangular sand box is 46 feet, what is the length of the missing side? 18 feet Page 33 Given two lengths, determine the perimeter Given the perimeter and one length, determine the missing side Given an irregular shape with not all of the sides, determine the perimeter Use a measuring tool to determine the perimeter of an irregular shape

71 Varying the Context of the Content (example) Elementary Math Use standard units to find the perimeter of a shape 3.11B All of the following polygons have the same perimeter. Draw picture of another polygon that would also have the same perimeter as those above. If the side length of 20 ft. of the garden were doubled, what would be the difference in the perimeter of the original garden and new garden? Mr. London sold half of his 16 square unit cotton field. How many units of fencing would Mr. London have to buy in order to secure his portion of the cotton field? Miss Albertson is making a cake in the shape of a house. She has baked an 8 inch by 3 inch rectangular cake and a 3 inch equilateral cake. If she arranges the two cakes to form a house, what would be the perimeter of the cake? 3 in. 5 in. 3 in. 6 2 2 6 2 2 10 5 5 7 7 2 4 Page 34 Combining shapes to determine the perimeter Combining the concept of area with perimeter Creating different polygons with same perimeter Analyzing the perimeter when different variables are changed

72 Varying the Context of the Content Elementary Math Use fraction names and symbols to describe fractional parts of whole objects or sets of objects 3.2C Set and whole given Set given but not the whole The whole given but not the parts Varying the Whole There are 12 students in Mr. Garcias first grade bilingual class. If there are 8 boys, what fractional part of the class is girls? There are 20 balls in the coachs bag. There are 7 orange basketballs, 5 black basketballs, 5 brown footballs, and 3 blue footballs. What fractional part of the set of basketballs are orange? Pages 35-40

100 Card Match Mr. Cantu will put 1 flag on each table in the cafeteria for a school event. The front of the cafeteria has 15 rows with 5 tables in each row. The back of the cafeteria has 12 rows with 4 tables in each row. Mr. Cantu already has 94 flags. If each flag costs $2, how much will he have to spend to purchase enough additional flags for each table?
