4 HOW DID THE CCSS CONVERSATION START? What does a student need to know and be able to do to enter when entering college or beginning a career/job? College & Career Readiness Standards Given the College & Career Readiness Standards, what does this trajectory look like in K-12 classrooms? Multiple rounds of feedback and revision States who had standards participated in developing the CCSS. State Option to Adopt the CCSS 42 states have adopted the CCSS North Carolina adopted the CCSS on June 3, 2010.
Common Core State Standards North Carolina Essential Standards English Language Arts Mathematics Arts Education Career and Technical Education English as a Second Language Exceptional Children Healthful Living Instructional Technology Science Social Studies World Languages North Carolina Standard Course of Study.

New Common Core New Essential Standards All Standards Operational in 2012-13
THE PROMISE OF STANDARDS These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep. 8
Promoting Change through Professional Development High-quality professional development can lead to positive change. Change requires transforming the role of teachers and school administrators. 6/21/2011 page 5
Our Assumptions: For RCS and for Our School Student learning is the highest priority. The Professional Learning Community framework guides our work. Expertise is shared and tapped within and outside of our teams. Things aren’t always perfect. This is a safe space to network, share ideas and ask questions.
Curriculum is a Complex Combination of Materials, Resources, and Actions
exists and evolves within the operating culture of public schools Curriculum StandardsStudent Achievement
The North Carolina Professional Educator Standards Form the foundation of that culture
Curriculum is that which: teachers teach students learn the district mandates the state requires is expected by Parents Community Higher Education

Guidance Comes From the Standards... But the Standards Alone are Not Enough
In Addition to Standards, Teachers Need Local Curriculum to Clarify District Expectations.
Local Curricula Helps Teachers Define it: What is it we expect students to learn? Measure it: How will we know when they have learned it? Scaffold it: How will we respond when they don’t learn it? Extend it: How will we respond when they already know it?
Components of Local Curricula Learning Targets Instructional Sequence Recommended Delivery Practices Assessment Guidance Professional Development Policies & Regulations 35
(Elmore & Rothman, 1999: Mitchell, 1998; Wishnick,1989) Importance of Alignment Alignment is an even stronger predictor of student achievement on standardized tests than are socioeconomic status, gender, race, and teacher effect.
Dimensions of Alignment Content Cognitive Context 42
Content Does the teacher teach and test the topics listed in the curriculum?
Cognitive Type Do the students get to work and think at the level the curriculum prescribes?
The Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy The Knowledge Dimension The Cognitive Process Dimension 1. Remember 2. Understand 3. Apply 4. Analyze 5. Evaluate 6. Create A.Factual A 1 A.Conceptual B2 A.Procedural C3 Meta- Cognitive D4
Public Schools of North Carolina oi f l State Board of Education Department of Public Instruction Context Are the parameters of the assessment reasonably similar to the parameters of the instruction?
Professional Learning Communities are Guided by Four Essential Questions
1.What is it we expect students to learn? 1.How will we know when they have learned it? 1.How will we respond when they don’t learn it? 1.How will we respond when they already know it? (2009) Raising the Bar and Closing the Gap: Whatever it Takes
Students are most successful when teachers have a shared understanding of “it” 1.What is it we expect students to learn? 2.How will we know when they have learned it? 3.How will we respond when they don’t learn it? 4.How will we respond when they already know it? (2009) Raising the Bar and Closing the Gap: Whatever it Takes
These Questions Form the Foundation of Instructional Planning
