JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 7 The 2005 K-8 History-Social Science Primary Adoption Important events (cont.): September 29-30, 2005: Curriculum Commission meets, holds public hearings, and makes recommendations on the submitted programs November 9-10, 2005: State Board meets, holds a public hearing, and takes final action on the adoption submissions December 2006: Post-adoption briefing for publishers February 2006: Distribution of Price Lists and Order Forms to districts
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 8 K-8 Adoption Process Recruitment of Reviewers Following a statewide recruitment and thorough application process, the Curriculum Commission recommends and the State Board appoints members of the Content Review Panel (CRP) and Instructional Materials Advisory Panel (IMAP).
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 9 K-8 Adoption Process Role of IMAP The IMAP is composed primarily of classroom teachers but also includes a broad range of other participants (e.g., school administrators, curriculum specialists, and parents) who evaluate materials according to all elements of the criteria. IMAP members review submitted materials according to State Board-adopted criteria and ensure that the content of materials is in alignment with the curriculum framework and content standards.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 10 K-8 Adoption Process Role of IMAP IMAP members review submitted materials according to State Board-adopted criteria in the five categories below: Criterion 1: Content/Alignment with Curriculum Criterion 2: Program Organization Criterion 3: Assessment Criterion 4: Universal Access Criterion 5: Instructional Planning and Support
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 11 K-8 Adoption Process Role of CRP CRP members (usually scholars with a doctorate in the subject area) review submitted materials according to State Board- adopted evaluation criteria and ensure that materials are accurate, aligned to grade level content standards, and are based on current and confirmed research.
K-8 and 9-12 Instructional Materials Adoption Process The 9-12 adoption process is locally run but subject to many of the same Education Code requirements. Since the Williams Settlement, these requirements are subject to greater scrutiny. The K-8 adoption process is largely state run. Local districts select from the materials approved by the state.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 16 K-8 Adoption Process The Adoption Process starts with the adoption of the Framework and Criteria for the Evaluation of Instructional Materials, grades K-8, pursuant to Education Code sections The criteria, like the frameworks, are developed by the Curriculum Commission and adopted by the State Board at least 30 months prior to the adoption of instructional materials
K-12 Adoption Process The Adoption Process starts with the adoption of the… Framework (Updated 2000) and Criteria for the Evaluation of Instructional Materials, pursuant to Education Code sections –K-8: required –9-12: recommended The criteria, like the frameworks, are developed by the Curriculum Commission and adopted by the State Board at least 30 months prior to the adoption of instructional materials
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 18 Curriculum Framework Purpose Provide support for teachers and guidelines for educational programs Give direction to publishers for the development of instructional materials Serve as a guide for local selection of instructional resources (grades 9-12) Provide direction for curriculum delivery Reflect current and confirmed research Provide direction for teacher professional development programs, in-service, pre-service and teacher licensing standards
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 19 Curriculum Framework Components Uses current and confirmed research in education and the specific content area to provide a firm foundation for curriculum and instruction Describes the scope and sequence of knowledge and skills all students need to master (based on content standards) Used in the state adoption of instructional materials.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 20 Evaluating History-Social Science Instructional Materials Criteria for Evaluating Instructional Materials in History-Social Science, Kindergarten Through Grade Eight
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 21 Criteria for Evaluating Instructional Materials Categories: 1.History-Social Science Content/Alignment with Standards: Required of K-8 and Program Organization 3.Assessment 4.Universal Access 5.Instructional Planning and Support
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 22 Criteria for Evaluating Instructional Materials Categories: 1.History-Social Science Content/Alignment with Standards: Required of K-8 and Program Organization 3.Assessment 4.Universal Access 5.Instructional Planning and Support K-8: Required 9-12: Not required but recommended.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 23 This Criterion is the gatekeeper In order to be adopted, materials must meet in full Category 1: History-Social Science Content/Alignment with Standards. History-Social Science Content/Alignment with Standards
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 24 Instructional materials provide “ instruction designed to ensure that students master all of the History-Social Science Content Standards for the intended grade level. Analysis skills of the pertinent grade-span must be covered at every grade level. ” History-Social Science Content Alignment with Standards
History-Social Science Standards Maps K-8: Standards alignment is validated at the State level by Instructional Materials Advisory Panel (IMAP) members and Content Review Panel (CRP) experts. 9-12: Standards alignment is validated by textbook review committees in local districts. Publishers complete California Standards Maps to identify how their programs align with the History-Social Science Content Standards for California Public Schools.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 26 Standards Map: Example
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 27 Adoption Process Legal and Social Compliance Review K-8: The legal and social compliance review is conducted by the IMAP/CRPs and also by a group of community volunteers assembled for that purpose. 9-12: The legal and social compliance review is conducted by local school districts.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 28 Adoption Process Legal and Social Compliance Review The Legal and Social Compliance review operates in accordance with Education Code sections , 60048, and and rules established by the State Department of Education. The standards and categories that are reviewed for legal compliance are listed within the State Board approved document entitled Standards for Evaluating Instructional Materials for Social Content.

JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 31 Instructional Materials Funding Main source of state funding: the Instructional Materials Funding Realignment Program (IMFRP) First priority: standards-aligned materials for all students, core subjects Mathematics Reading/Language Arts History-Social Science Science
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 32 Instructional Materials Funding When all pupils have standards-aligned instructional materials in the four subjects listed above, the governing board certifies that this has been accomplished. See sample IMFRP Certification - Suggested Language on the CD Districts may then use IMFRP funds to purchase other adopted materials, such as foreign language, health, and visual and performing arts.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 33 Instructional Materials Funding 24 month rule: K-8: Materials must be in place 24 months after SBE adoption (November 2005) 9-12: Materials must be in place 24 months after local district adoption To use IMFRP funds, the local instructional materials adoption must be made after the State Board of Education adoption of the curriculum frameworks: –Reading Language Arts (December 1998) –Mathematics (December 1998) –History-Social Science (October 2000) –Science (February 2002)
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 34 Instructional Materials Sufficiency The district governing board holds an annual hearing and adopts a Resolution of Instructional Materials Sufficiency See: Suggested Resolution on Sufficiency of Instructional Materials on the CD
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 35 Instructional Materials Sufficiency EC 60119, revised by SB 550: The governing board must make a determination by resolution as to whether each pupil in the district has sufficient instructional materials in the 4 core areas. If there are insufficient materials, the governing board must… –Provide information on the reasons why there are insufficient materials. –Take action to insure that each pupil will have sufficient materials by the second month of the school year.
JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 36 Instructional Materials Sufficiency Definition of “sufficient” Each pupil (grades K-12) has standards- aligned textbook or instructional materials, or both, to use in class and to take home to complete required homework assignments.

JACK O’CONNELL State Superintendent of Public Instruction 37 Audit Penalties Districts that fail to meet the requirements of the IMFRP and other Education Code sections governing instructional materials may forfeit their IMFRP funding if an audit finds that these funds were inappropriately expended.
Tools for a Local Textbook Review Process California Education Code NAME OF TEXT: PUBLISHER: EDUCATION CODEEVIDENCE FROM TEXT Cesar Chavez The State Board of Education shall ensure that the state curriculum and framework, where appropriate, include instruction on Cesar Chavez and the history of the farm labor movement in the United States, and that the state criteria for selecting textbooks include information to guide the selection of textbooks that contain sections that highlight the life and contributions of Cesar Chavez and the history of the farm labor movement in the United States No textbook, or other instructional materials shall be adopted by the state board or by any governing board for use in the public schools which contain(s) any matter reflecting adversely upon persons because of their race, sex, color, creed, handicap, national origin, or ancestry.
Tools for a Local Textbook Review Process Review Criteria Guide Category 1: History–Social Science Content/Alignment with Standards Basic Requirement See Standards Maps
Practice Review Process Step 1 - Select a standard (Think about selecting standards students struggle with learning) Example: Students analyze the development of federal civil rights and voting rights Analyze the women's rights movement from the era of Elizabeth Stanton and Susan Anthony and the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the movement launched in the 1960s, including differing perspectives on the roles of women.
Practice Review Process Step 2 - Analyze the standard to determine: 1.Specific information or understandings students must learn. 2.The thinking skills students must demonstrate Content = development of women’s rights (chrono- logical study) including people who disagreed 1.Era of Stanton Anthony 1840s-50s (Seneca Falls) 2.Events/laws leading to 19th Amendment Changes from the 1920s-1960s 4.Civil Rights issues related to women in 1960s such as NOW, women’s liberation, etc. Thinking = analysis
Practice Review Process Step 3 - Using the Table of Contents and Index of the text, determine the pages in the text that cover the standard. 1.Mark those pages on the publisher provided standards map and note if they match publisher info. 2.Read the selection(s) 3.Make note on the standards map if the text material includes information about all the elements of the standard. STANDARDS MAP _________________________________________________________________________________________ Grade| Stand. | Text of Stand. | Introduced| Practiced| Taught to Mastery|Yes| No| Evaluator Notes Pre-printed Completed by publisher Completed by reviewer
Review Criteria Charts How to use them at your site. Think about the students at your school and the reading or learning support they need to learn this standard
Local Student Need Example: Vocabulary What are some ways that textbooks support vocabulary development… 1. Pre-teach at beginning of chapter 2. Highlight in text 3. Use appositional definitions 4. Vocabulary activities as part of the student chapter review
Criteria Review Chart Find your school’s learning issue on the chart or add it at the end. Chart entry that addresses our example need: Strategies for universal access and ways to improve the vocabulary, reading and language skills of English learners in the H-SS context (Category 2, Entry 7)
Practice Review Process Step 4 -Reread the selection with the criteria in mind and make notes on the Review Criteria Sheet Example: Strategies for universal access and ways to improve the vocabulary, reading and language skills of English learners in the H-SS context (Category 2 Entry 7) Universal access:
Spring 2005 Establish Textbook Review Committee: Make it representative and diverse Content area, English Learner, GATE, and Special Ed specialists Site or district administrator University specialists Examine the History-Social Science Content Standards and Framework Meet with teachers, students, and parents to create a needs assessment survey (Think about demographics, subgroups and CST performance, vertical articulation, & teacher, parent, and student input about learning needs.)
