Brought to you people who may not have taught in a long time…..
All Grades P-8 should be instructed using the CCLS Units for these instructional changes or “shifts,” can be found on State tests Gr 3-8 will have less time; text will be authentic—longer and more rigorous; no calculators in Book 1, but required in Books 2 and 3 ELA state tests are given over 3 days, covering 4 books; no speaking or listening tested
Balancing informational and literary texts (P-5) Building subject area knowledge (Gr 6-12) Increasing complexity from grade to grade Answering text-based questions Writing from sources Building academic vocabularies
Reading Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Knowledge of domain-specific vocabulary Analyze, evaluate, and differentiate primary and secondary sources Synthesize quantitative and technical information, including facts presented in maps, timelines, flowcharts, or diagrams Writing Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Write arguments on discipline-specific content and informative/explanatory texts Use of data, evidence, and reason to support arguments and claims Use of domain-specific vocabulary
Focus: spend more time on priority concepts; fewer topics Coherence: look at the prior year’s learning and the expectation for the next year Fluency: master basic skills, high quality and high volume practice Deep Understanding: every student “gets it” before moving on Application: to other subject areas and the real world Dual Intensity: combine fluency and practice
PreK-5 focuses on the basic operations plus fractions and decimals 6-8 adds geometry, algebra and probability and statistics High School centers around number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry and probability and statistics
