Enables students to read, understand, and respond to informational texts. Enables students to read, understand, and respond to literature. Develops the skills of informational, argumentative, and narrative writing as well as the ability to engage in evidence based analysis of text and research. Focuses students on communication skills that enable critical listening and effective presentation of ideas.

8 An Introduction to the PA Common Core Golden Line Activity: Step 1: On your own, read the first section of the Range and Content notes. As you read, underline or highlight words or phrases that stand out as profound. Step 2: From the words or phrases you selected, choose the one word or phrase that you would classify as gold. Step 3: Turn and share with a partner or small group. Build consensus and choose the one word or phrase that you can all agree on as most valuable. Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 8

10 10 PA Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content English Language Arts 10 E. 03. B-K Grade Assessment Ancho r Eligible Content Anchor Descriptor Reporting Categories A = Literature Text B = Informational Text A-K and B-K = Key Ideas and Details A-C and B-C = Craft and Structure/Integration of Knowledge and Ideas A-V and B-V = Vocabulary Acquisition and Use C = Writing D = Language

11 STANDARD CATEGORY 1.2 Reading Informational Text Students read, understand and respond to informational text-with emphasis on comprehension, making connections among ideas and between texts with focus on textual evidence. GRADE LEVEL STANDARD CC A Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea. ASSESSMENT ANCHOR-The Assessment Anchors represent categories of subject matter (skills and concepts) that anchor the content of the PSSA. Each Assessment Anchor is part of a Reporting Category and has one or more Anchor Descriptors unified under and aligned to it. E03.B-K.1 Key Ideas and Details ANCHOR DESCRIPTOR-The Anchor Descriptor adds a level of specificity to the content covered by the Assessment Anchor. Each Anchor Descriptor is part of an Assessment Anchor and has one or more Eligible Content unified under and aligned to it. E03.B-K.1.1 Key Ideas and Details Demonstrate the understanding of key ideas and details in informational texts. ELIGIBLE CONTENT-The Eligible Content is the most specific description of the skills and concepts assessed on the PSSA. This level is considered the assessment limit and helps educators identify the range of the content covered on the PSSA. E03.B-K Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.

12 STANDARD CATEGORY 1.3.L: Reading, Analyzing, and Interpreting Literature – Fiction and Non-Fiction GRADE LEVEL STANDARD A Describe and compare the differing characteristics that distinguish the fiction and non-fiction forms of narrative, poetry, drama, and essay and determine how the form relates to meaning… ASSESSMENT ANCHOR-The Assessment Anchors represent categories of subject matter (skills and concepts) that anchor the content of the Keystone Exam. Each Assessment Anchor is part of a Reporting Category and has one or more Anchor Descriptors unified under and aligned to it. L.F.2 Analyzing and Interpreting Literature – Fiction ANCHOR DESCRIPTOR-The Anchor Descriptor adds a level of specificity to the content covered by the Assessment Anchor. Each Anchor Descriptor is part of an Assessment Anchor and has one or more Eligible Content unified under and aligned to it. L.F.2.1 Use appropriate strategies to make and support interpretations of literature. ELIGIBLE CONTENT-The Eligible Content is the most specific description of the skills and concepts assessed on the Keystone Exam. This level is considered the assessment limit and helps educators identify the range of the content covered on the Keystone Exam. L.F Cite evidence from a text to support generalizations.

13 An Introduction to the PA Common Core Why Common Core? Disparate standards across states Global competition Today’s jobs require different skills States are ready and able for collective action Aligned with college and work expectations Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 13

14 An Introduction to the PA Common Core Why Common Core? Focused and coherent Includes rigorous content and application of knowledge through high- order skills Built upon strengths and lessons of current state standards Internationally benchmarked Based on evidence and research Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 14

15 An Introduction to the PA Common Core Why PA Common Core? Pennsylvania Timeline: Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Standards for grades 5, 8, Anchors Revised Standards

16 Knowledge Building of the PA Common Core Vertical Progression of a Standard Look at one standard – PreK-Grade 12 – Pair and Share: Begin at PreK and go to K. What is different? Follow the standard through Grade 12. – Discuss: At what grade levels are significant shifts or additions evident? Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 16

17 What is Depth of Knowledge (DOK)? A scale of cognitive demand (thinking) to align standards with assessments Based on the research of Norman Webb, University of Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education Defines the “ceiling” or highest DOK level for each Core Content standard for the state assessment Guides item development for state assessments

18 Webb’s DOK DEFINITIONS 1.0 Student recalls facts, information, procedures, or definitions. 2.0 Student uses information, conceptual knowledge, and procedures. 3.0 Student uses reasoning and develops a plan or sequence of steps; process has some complexity. 4.0 Student conducts an investigation, needs time to think and process multiple conditions of problem or task. 18

19 Level 1: Recall and Reproduction Level 2: Skills & Concepts Level 3: Strategic Thinking Level 4: Extended Thinking Levels of Cognitive Complexity

20 Depth of Knowledge The Depth of Knowledge is NOT determined by the verb, but the context in which the verb is used and the depth of thinking required.

21 DOK 3- Describe a model that you might use to represent the relationships that exist within the rock cycle. (requires deep understanding of rock cycle and a determination of how best to represent it) DOK 2- Describe the difference between metamorphic and igneous rocks. (requires cognitive processing to determine the differences in the two rock types) DOK 1- Describe three characteristics of metamorphic rocks. (simple recall) One Verb...three DOK levels

22 DOK is not about difficulty...

23 Producing Cognitive Sweat! Meeting the Rigor of the Common Core

24 Remember… Use PA Common Core to identify the DOK in a standard. Page 33 – PreK-Grade 5 (CC.1.5.PK.B) Page 31 – Grades (CC B)

26 Addressing the Shifts Take a look at look at your grade level first and highlight the Common Core Shifts you may have already addressed. Provide evidence of how this occurred. Propose how the ones not highlighted will be addressed. Copyright ©2010 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 26

27 Building Capacity The standards are like the building code. Architects and builders must attend to them but they are not the purpose of their design…the house to be built or renovated is designed to meet the needs of the client in a functional and pleasing manner-while also meeting the building code along the way.

31 Module Overview The standards overview is designed to be the first in a four module training of the English Language Arts section of the PA Common Core Standards. In this module participants will work to build awareness, knowledge, and finally capacity in the overall understanding of the structure of the standards, as well as the fundamental shifts that go along with them. Special attention will be given to the ideas of rigor and depth of knowledge. By engaging in activities built around the standards themselves, participants will gain familiarity with the document and how its content should begin to change instructional practice.

32 Technology Needs Laptop capable of delivering Power point Projector Room Organization The participants should be organized in small groups of 4 to 8 with the flexibility to be able to working in pairs or share with the group as a whole. Copyright ©2011 Commonwealth of Pennsylvania 32
