2 + Welcome A few introductions....

3 + Purpose Improve/calibrate our skills Keep Updated Obtain tools/protocols of quality to use back in your districts Make CONNECTIONS SO, WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Wiki

4 + Making the Case for Change...

5 + 5 Rigor of Math Standards in Cedar Falls and the Iowa Core Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation

6 + 6 Rigor of Cedar Falls Language Arts Standards Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation

11 + 11 Language Arts Assessment Rigor Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation

12 + So, how can we determine current reality in our lesson plans and instruction?.... a tool.

13 Is There Alignment? 1. Remember 2. Understand 3. Apply 4. Analyze 5. Evaluate 6. Create A. Factual knowledge B. Conceptual knowledge C. Procedural knowledge D. Meta- cognitive knowledge Assessment Instruction Standard Instruction 13 Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation

14 Strong Alignment? 1. Remember 2. Understand 3. Apply 4. Analyze 5. Evaluate 6. Create A. Factual knowledge B. Conceptual knowledge C. Procedural knowledge D. Meta- cognitive knowledge Instruction and formative assessment Standard Instruction and formative assessment Instruction and formative and summative assessment 14 Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation

15 Let’s Practice: Is This Good Unit Alignment? Assessing Academic Rigor - Based on SREB Learning-Centered Leadership Program and the Wallace Foundation 15

16 Let’s practice the taxonomy chart: Define Rigor.

17 Students will use a map or series of maps to identify the colonial expansion of European powers in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the America through 1770.

18 Apply the concepts of perimeter, area, and volume.

19 The students will compare whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and percents, using concrete materials, drawings, pictures, and mathematical symbols.

20 Make inferences based on data presented in a variety of way.

21 Evaluate and identify appropriate risk management options, including types of insurance, non-insurance, and identify protection. (Financial Literacy)

22 Common Core IS in the Iowa Core

23 + I-CAT

24 + Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (Webb’s DOK)

25 + Iowa Testing, 6-8 Grade Level, this year Students had a passage to read, then 5 questions with multiple choice answers: In the marked line, what does “disorient” mean? Which picture shows a light that helps reduce light pollution? Which sentence states the main idea? How is the third paragraph organized? Which website is most likely to have accurate information about where night skies are darkest?

26 + Smarter Balanced Assessments Computerized testing Based on the Common Core 12-week time period to take tests 90% of school year is to be completed Cognitive Complexity based on Webb’s DOK Test bank; each student gets a next question based upon answers to previous questions

27 + Grade 8 - Literacy In “Meditation XVII,” which phrase best supports the idea that all people are connected? Below is information from the passage, “The Meditations.” Organize the information by moving each phrase from the passage into the proper section of the table.

28 + The author of “Meditation XVII” and the author of “The Meditations” suggest that each individual is an import part of society. Show how this idea is developed in those passages and also illustrated in the article “To the Rescue of Birds in Oil Spill: A Fifth Grader.” Use evidence from the passages to support your response.

29 + So where are we now..... Iowa Core Implementation Network (combination of Curriculum Network and Iowa Core Network) Administrator Academy LETRS Superintendents’ Network Investigations Data Teams Our work with buildings, individual students, staff.

30 + Smarter Balanced Consortium Website Powerpoint Source is Colleen Anderson, DE
