Engaging Students through Common Core
3 R's : Reflect, Refresh, Renew * Reflect - Ice-Breaker - Write down main purpose for attending session (index card) * Refresh - Content - Experiential activities * Renew - Closing - Memory minute into goal setting (other side of index card) Our Purpose Today
Housekeeping Reminders Agreement Review Ice Breaker Experientially learn strategies Verbally reflect on our practices Set a written goal to implement 3 new strategies Agenda
4 1.Understand general tenets of Common Core 2.Learn basic standards-based tools 3.Learn strategies to integrate the standards into your own curriculum Objectives
1.) Hands raised for questions 2.) Peace sign fingers = Our quiet sign 3.) Talk time = 2 minutes 4.) No food or phones during session 5.) Index cards 5 Housekeeping Reminders
Be Fully Present : No food or phones 2 B4 Me: 2 people share before I speak again Watch My Air Time: 2 minutes Use our Tools: Index cards, folders, etc. Snaps: Acknowledging the good I witness - CPS Arts Department, 2014 Workshop Agreements
Guiding Question & Introductions: What do you want to take away from this session? What are your needs? Please Note: This goal is written on the colored index card 7 Reflect – Ice-Breaker
8 Common Core State Standards Overview
9 Anchor Standards
10 Key Terminology Common Core State Standards (CCSS) – refers to the desired qualities of student work and the degree of rigor that must be assessed and achieved. The standards do not dictate what content is covered. Cognitive Demand – The type of information a person is asked to process at any one time (Webb’s Depth of Knowledge) Relevance – One using their knowledge to tackle real-world problems with more than one solution. Rigor – Rigor is 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. Text Complexity – Meaning, structure, etc. of a reading passage (Lexile.com)Lexile.com Close Reading – Requires a substantial emphasis on readers figuring out a high quality text Close Reading Rose M. Marsh, Ph. D. “Common Core State Standards: Rigor.” 2013.
11 Text Complexity
12 Text Complexity Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.10 Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.

14 Close Reading Key Ideas and Details: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.2 Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas. Production and Distribution of Writing: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.5 CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.W.5 Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
Key Take-A-Way Identify 3 new things you learned about the CCSS Identify 2 questions you still have Identify 1 way the CCSS may be relevant to your organization 15 Partner Reflection
16 Depth of Knowledge (DOK)
Think/Pair/Share What types of activities are students currently engaged in? How are they assessed? How is information communicated to parents, teachers? Are students currently being assessed for the intellectual work they’re doing? 17 Partner Reflection
Using Outside Resource Examples 1.What It Takes To Be GreatWhat It Takes To Be Great 2.I, Too, Sing AmericaI, Too, Sing America 3.Money Makes the World Go RoundMoney Makes the World Go Round 18 Refresh – Strategy #1
Key Take-A-Way Are the lesson plan examples something you can use in your practice? Why or why not? 19 Partner Reflection
Affective Variables 20 Academic TenacityAcademic Tenacity: about working hard, and working smart, for a long time Deliberate PracticeDeliberate Practice: Experts are experts at maintaining high-levels of practice and improving performance. Habits of MindHabits of Mind: don't simply represent fragments of practice to "add on" to what you already do, but rather new ways to think about how people learn. Growth MindsetGrowth Mindset: people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point.
Examining Current Activities 1.What type of learning activities do you conduct with students? 2.Which target the affective nature of learning? 3.What reflective opportunities do you currently offer students? 21 Partner Reflection
Examining Current Activities 1.Examples of HOM 2.Examples of deliberate practice 3.Examples of academic tenacity 4.Examples of growth mindset 22 Refresh – Strategy #2
Assessment What does assessment look like? How is the information communicated? What is valuable and to whom? 23
Closing Question: What 3 strategies/ideas/concepts will you take away from this session? How were your needs met? Please Note: This goal is written on the back-side of the colored index card 24 Renew – Goal Setting
