2 Excerpt: The Road Not Taken by Robert FrostTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowth;I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.

17 Unit of StudyDefinedA series of specific lessons, learning experiences, and related assessments—based on designated Priority Standards and related supporting standards—for a topical, skills-based, or thematic focus that may last anywhere from two to six weeks.17
18 Units of StudyA rigorous curriculum is an inclusive set of intentionally aligned components—clear learning outcomes with matching assessments, engaging learning experiences, and instructional strategies—organized into sequenced units of study.18
19 Unit of Study…A rigorous curriculum serves as both the detailed road map and the high-quality delivery system for ensuring that all students achieve the desired end: the attainment of their designated grade- or course-specific standards within a particular content area..19
20 Defined Priority Standards Priority Standards are “those standards that, once mastered, give a student the ability to use reasoning and thinking skills to learn and understand other curriculum objectives.”- Dr. Douglas Reeves20
21 Defined Supporting Standards Supporting standards are those standards that support, connect to, or enhance the Priority Standards. They are taught within the context the Priority Standards, but do not receive the same degree of instruction and assessment emphasis as do the Priority Standards.21
22 Prioritization, Not Elimination! An Important MessagePrioritization, Not Elimination!
24 One of the GOALS for today is to answer this Essential Question: How will Units of Study support teachers in maximizing achievement for ALL students?
25 Assigning the Standards Distribute Priority Standards across multiple units as long as it makes instructional sense to do so.Distribute Supporting Standards across multiple units.
26 Defined Units Pacing Guide A pacing calendar is a yearlong (or course-long) schedule for delivering all of the planned units of study for a designated grade level or course, not the daily lessons to be used within units.26
27 Buffer DaysPacing calendar is different than the past. Buffer time is now included between units.Suggested ways for use of Buffer DaysAssess/ Re-AssessReviewReteachExtension

30 “Unwrapping” the Standards Identifying What Students Must Know and Be Able To Do in the Wording of the Standards
31 “Unwrap” Selected Priority Standards Identify the key concepts (important nouns or noun phrases) by underlining them.Identify the skills (verbs) by circling them or writing them in CAPS.
32 Bloom’s levels refer to the student’s level of thinking during instruction.

34 What Do You Think Is More Engaging for Students? Essential QuestionBig IdeaGood readersa) Identify the main idea ofthe text and explain how itis supported by details.b) Determine which detailsare key to the text.c) Use key details and themain idea to summarize.d) Explain what happenedand why it happened basedon information in the text.How do good readers take details and examples to explain the main idea of a text?
35 The Big IdeasFoundational understandings students will remember long after instruction endsWhat you want students to discover as a result of the learning experienceThe larger concepts or main ideasThe student’s answer or response to a related Essential Question
36 Big IdeasWriters create a report on an informational text or topic by:a) Introducing a topic clearly, grouping related information in paragraphs, and using descriptive details.b) Developing a topic with appropriate facts, definitions, concrete details, and quotations related to the topic.c) Providing a concluding statement to the information presented.
37 Essential Questions Questions, not statements, stimulate student curiosity to find the answers!
38 Characteristics of Essential Questions Cannot be answered with a “yes” or “no”Have no single obvious right answerCannot be answered from rote memoryMatch the rigor of the “unwrapped” standardGo beyond who, what, when, and where to how and whyMoves away from procedural to conceptual understandingMakes it relevant

51 The Art and Science of Teaching, 2007 Robert Marzano“Levels of student performance improve when instruction focuses on: active learning, real-world contexts, higher-level thinkingskills, extended writing, and demonstration.”The Art and Science of Teaching, 2007
53 Performance Task Defined “Performance tasks provide an opportunity to challenge students to apply their knowledge and skills to respond to complex, real-world problems. They can best be described as collections of questions and tasks presented to students that are coherently connected to a single theme or scenario.”
54 Terms and Definitions Performance Task = A single assessment Performance Assessment = A collection of related performance tasks
55 Key Points to Remember When Designing Performance Tasks What are your desired end results for student learning?Can you “work backwards” – start with a culminating task and then create the lead-up tasks to get there?
56 Relationship between Tasks and Engaging Scenario Engaging scenario answers question: “Why are we doing it?”Performance tasks answer question: “What are we going to do?”
57 Engaging ScenarioHow will you“hook”the students?
58 Effective Engaging Scenarios Contain Five Key Elements S What is the situation?C What is the challenge?R What role(s) does the student assume?A Who is the audience (preferably an external audience)?P What is the product/performance student will demonstrate and/or create?
59 Is Your Scenario Truly Engaging? Acid test: If there were no standards driving instruction and assessment, would this scenario be so compelling students and teachers would WANT to work on these tasks?

70 Sample lesson plan ideas… Students will research a planet using several different resources. They will take notes on the topology, location, life forms (if any), etc. using step-up to writing strategies and/or graphic organizers. (Task 1)Student will assemble a project/model, poster, diorama, or power point at home with family support that includes the planet elements. (Task 2)Students will write an organized report that includes the elements of the planet, and main idea, details, information, and demonstrate command of conventions of English. (Task 3)Students will give an oral presentation using a visual aid on their planet, including the elements of the planet. (Task 4)*Rubrics are provided for each Task.*

76 Critical Areas of Focus derived from the State Standards Implications of Mathematical Practices(How are students going to use the practices within the unit)Critical Area of Focus #1Students generalize their understanding of place value to 1,000,000, understanding the relative sizes of numbers in each place. Depending on the numbers and the context, they select and accurately apply appropriate methods to estimate or mentally calculate sums and differences.Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.Students will use visual models to aide them in making sense of larger place value quantities and persevere while constructing larger numbers for use in addition and subtraction.Reason abstractly and quantitatively.Students will recognize that the value of a digit is determined by its place.Construct viable argument and critique the reasoning of others.Students construct arguments using concrete referents, such as manipulatives and charts while participating in mathematical discussions. Students will ask questions like “How did you get that?”, “Explain your thinking”, and “Why is that true?” when solving problems.Model with mathematics.Students will use base ten blocks and manipulatives to represent different number quantities.Use appropriate tools strategically.Students will use place value charts, base ten blocks, and number lines to solve problems.Attend to precision.Students use appropriate vocabulary when discussing place value, addition, and subtraction.Look for and make use of structure.Students will discover a pattern when working with numbers and will understand the role of commas when reading and writing numbers to 1,000,000.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.Students will build upon prior knowledge of place value when assessing the reasonableness of estimates when adding and subtracting quantities.Critical Areas of Focusderived from the State StandardsStandards for Mathematical Practice and their implications for the unit.
