CCRS QUARTERLY MEETING 2 CCRS QUARTERLY MEETING 2 ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS GRADES K-5 http://alex.state.al.us/ccrs/
O UTCOMES : Participants will... 1.Reflect on “Extended Learning” 2.Explore the Reading/Writing connections in the standards for ELA 3.Analyze the components of a lesson using the EQuIP (Tri- State) Rubric 4.Determine what is needed for a lesson to address the College- and Career-Ready Standards with specific emphasis on the Writing standards for ELA
C OMPASS P OINTS How are you feeling right now about the new English Language Arts Standards?
C OMPASS P OINTS S = Steps – What steps have you taken with your practice and implementation of the CCRS Speaking and Listening Standards ? E = Excited – What excites you about your practice and implementation of the CCRS Speaking and Listening Standards? W = Wondering– What are you still wondering about the implementation of CCRS Speaking and Listening Standards? N = Need to Know – What additional information would you like to know about the implementation of CCRS Speaking and Listening Standards?
Share & Extend Your Learning: CCRS IT QM 1 1.Take the reflection sheet, “Where Is Your LEA in the Awareness Phase of CCRS Implementation,” with you to team planning. Discuss how this might be helpful in gathering information in your LEA. 2.Share the Tri-State rubric with your LEA Implementation Team, and decide how it will be shared. 3.Return to your school and determine if the teachers have procedures and routines in place for Speaking and Listening opportunities. 4.Based on your planning today, practice implementing speaking and listening in your classroom. Be prepared to reflect and share your implementation progress at Quarterly Meeting #2.
A LABAMA Q UALITY T EACHING S TANDARDS 1.4-Designs instructional activities based on state content standards 2.7-Creates learning activities that optimizes each individual’s growth and achievement within a supportive environment 5.3-Participates as a teacher leader and professional learning community member to advance school improvement initiatives
Three Key Shifts in ELA/Literacy 1. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts speaking 2. Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational 3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic language
O UTCOME 2: Participants will explore the Reading/Writing connections in the standards for ELA.
T HE R EADING -W RITING C ONNECTION “…writing is treated as an equal partner to reading, and more than this, writing is assumed to be the vehicle through which a great deal of the reading work and reading assessments will occur.” Pathways to the Common Core, pg. 102
T HE R EADING -W RITING C ONNECTION “Of all the instructional approaches to connecting reading and writing studied so far, writing about text has been the most successful as an avenue to improving reading achievement, and such integrated approaches have been valuable in stimulating higher quality writing outcomes, too.” Dr. Timothy Shanahan, University of Illinois at Chicago
T HE R EADING -W RITING C ONNECTION Being able to write well is also an essential skill for college- and career-readiness, which is why the common core gives it so much attention. According to David Conley (2007), “if we could institute only one change to make students more college- ready, it should be to increase the amount and quality of writing students are expected to produce.”
T HE R EADING -W RITING C ONNECTION “There is no question but that the Common Core State Standards emphasize writing (and reading) in the content areas, across every discipline. The message is clear that just as every teacher needs to be a teacher of reading, so too, every teacher needs to be a teacher of writing.” Pathways to the Common Core, page 110
C LOSELY R EAD THE R EADING & W RITING A NCHOR S TANDARDS First Read: Look for key ideas and details in both the Reading and Writing Anchor Standards Second Read: Look for evidence of how the Reading and Writing Standards support one another Third Read: How will this look in your classroom?
W HAT D OES THE R EADING -W RITING CONNECTION L OOK LIKE ? As you view the next two videos take notes on where you see the Reading-Writing connection.
O UTCOME 3: Participants will analyze the components of two lessons using the EQuIP Rubric.
EQ U IP R UBRIC Review the K-2 and 3-12 rubrics. Highlight key areas regarding writing. Talk with a partner about how the two rubrics differ in regards to writing? Be prepared to share out about each dimension. Highlight
A NALYZING L ESSONS U SING THE EQ U IP R UBRIC Read the lesson, “Write an Opinion.” With a partner, analyze the lesson using the EQuIP Rubric. Record your findings on the Summary of Observations and Suggestions for Improvement section. Be prepared to share your findings.
A NALYZING L ESSONS U SING THE EQ U IP R UBRIC Read the lesson, “Research to Learn More.” With a partner, analyze the lesson using the EQuIP Rubric. Record your findings on the Summary of Observations and Suggestions for Improvement section. Be prepared to share your findings.
O UTCOME 4: Participants will determine what is needed for a lesson to address the College- and Career-Ready Standards with specific emphasis on the Writing standards for ELA.
R IGOR “….creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels, and each student demonstrates learning at high levels.”(Blackburn, 2008)
R IGOR M ADE E ASY E – Engages all students A – Accommodates all learners S – Scaffolds learning Y – Yields results
R IGOR : T RUTH OR F ICTION 1.Lots of homework is a sign of rigor. 2.Rigor means doing more. 3.Rigor is not for everyone. 4.Providing support means lessening rigor.
P LANNING A W RITING L ESSON 1. Choose a reading text from your materials. 2. Create a writing opinion lesson connected to the text you have chosen using the lesson template provided.
P LANNING A W RITING L ESSON 1. Choose a reading text from your materials. 2. Create a writing Research to Learn lesson connected to the text you have chosen using the lesson template provided.
Possesses the knowledge and skills needed to enroll and succeed in credit- bearing, first-year courses at a two- or four-year college, trade school, technical school, without the need for remediation. Prepared Graduate Defined Possesses the ability to apply core academic skills to real-world situations through collaboration with peers in problem solving, precision, and punctuality in delivery of a product, and has a desire to be a life- long learner.
Next Steps 1.Revisit the EQuIP Rubric with a focus on writing with the LEA Implementation Team, and decide how it will be shared. 2.Determine how the teachers in your school are incorporating the Writing Standards daily. 3.Based on your planning today, practice implementing the Writing Standards in your classroom daily. Bring back student work samples of an opinion and/or research to learn lesson(s). Be prepared to share your implementation progress at Quarterly Meeting #3.
