1 CCRS Implementation Team #3 Quarterly Meeting Social Studies Session http://alex.

2 OUTCOMES Participants Will: Revisit Dimensions I & II of the EQuIP Rubric. Analyze Dimensions III & IV of the EQuIP Rubric. Identify instructional strategies that will incorporate literacy standards into content instruction. Examine evidence of student learning. Explore the 2010 Revised Alabama Social Studies Course of Study. Differentiate between Alabama Courses of Study: Social Studies 2004 and 2010 Documents. Prepare to share resources with district LEA team and colleagues.

3 Reflection on the EQuIP Rubric: Dimensions I and II Savings & Loan Protocol What experiences have you had in applying the EQuIP Rubric? How has your experience with the EQuIP Rubric impacted your planning process? What tools have you found to be helpful in your planning process?

4 Analyze Dimensions III and IV of the EQuIP Rubric Instructional Supports and Assessment Create a Hotdog Foldable with the headings. Think of 5 words that describe each term. Share, compare, and list the words you have in common with other group members. Develop a common definition for each term: instructional supports and assessment.

5 INSTRUCTIONAL SUPPORTS Purposeful Planning for Strategies Sort the instructional strategies into subcategories of the Literacy Standards. Discuss how this technique would help in the purposeful selection of strategies and standards for instruction. From those you sorted choose 1-3 strategies that you would like to incorporate in a lesson.

6 Examining Evidence of Student Learning Does the student work show mastery of (or toward) the standard? Sort your student work samples into 3 stacks: “no”, “partial”, or “yes”. What does this tell you about what your students know about the day’s lesson? What does this tell you about the role strategies play in content instruction?

10 Teach to the standards for each of the required subjects (Alabama College- and Career-Ready Standards – Our Courses of Study) Through a clearly articulated and locally aligned K-12 curriculum (Sample curricula found on ALEX and Alabama Insight Tool) Supported by aligned resources, support, and professional development (Sample lesson plans and supporting resources found on ALEX, differentiated support through ALSDE Regional Support Teams and ALSDE Initiatives, etc.) Monitored regularly through formative, interim/benchmark assessments to inform the effectiveness of the instruction and continued learning needs of individuals and groups of students (GlobalScholar, QualityCore Benchmarks, and other locally determined assessments) With a goal that each student graduates from high school with the knowledge and skills to succeed in post-high school education and the workforce without the need for remediation as evidenced by multiple measures achieved through multiple pathways to meet the graduation requirements set for students in Alabama. (Alabama High School Graduation Requirements/Diploma) Remember Dr. Bice’s Five (5) Absolutes

11 S: Teach to the Standards C: Through a clearly articulated and locally aligned curriculum R: Supported by resources A: Monitored through formative, interim, benchmark assessments G: Goal of ALL students graduating college and career ready

12 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. 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. SO WHAT SHOULD THE PREPARED GRADUATE LOOK LIKE?


14 Promoting the Literacy Standards and Critical Thinking in the Social Studies These higher-order critical thinking skills developed and practiced through an integrated approach will create an informed, engaged, responsible citizenry able to:  Understand democratic values and principles including equality, fairness, working toward a common good;  Understand democratic processes and institutions such as laws, justice, representative democracy, civil discourse, and due process;  Practice reasoned decision-making by taking a position and defending it with supporting facts, accurate information, and reasoned conclusions;  Demonstrate participatory skills that include listening, speaking, and communicating through civil discourse, consensus-building, compromise, formal debate, and presentation of multiple perspectives;  Evaluate sources of information to identify bias, unbalanced perspective, and prejudice;  Become engaged, active citizens in the democratic process and the well-being of our national heritage.

15 Preparing All Students for College, Career and Citizenship: The Role of Social Studies In today’s education reform discussions we hear much at the national level about the need to prepare students for college and career. While it is vitally important to our nation’s future that every student be prepared to succeed in higher education and in the workforce, it is vital to the health and future of our democracy that our schools also prepare students for a lifetime of knowledgeable, engaged, and active citizenship. All teachers in all subject areas can work toward preparing students to become effective citizens.

16 What Does A Responsible Citizen Look Like?  Informed and active  Aware of various levels of civic responsibility  A global perspective characterized by cultural diversity  A plan and prepared to succeed (PLAN 2020)
