1 Webinar Series Part II: Common Core Standards and Assessments Overview for School Directors and Leaders Dec. 12, 2012 Materials Posted Online: PowerPoint Presentation Handout 1: CCSS-SBAC Hot Topics Handout 2: Game Planning for the Common Core Blog Handout 3: WA CCSS Implementation

2 Before we begin…About You CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems  We’d like to know a little about who is out there.  Time for a poll. 2

3 Our time today CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 1. Shared Learning  Common Core State Standards – English language arts and Mathematics  Washington’s approach toward implementation  Smarter Balanced Assessment System and Washington Transitions 2. Discussion with Jonelle Adams, WSSDA Executive Director  Opportunities and potential roles for School Directors 3

4 What are the Common Core State Standards? CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems Define knowledge and skills students should have in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics throughout their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in careers and college. The English language arts and mathematics standards:  Align to expectations for career and college readiness  Are based on evidence  Are honest about time They do not:  Dictate how teachers teach  Dictate what instructional / curricular materials should be used 4

5 45 states, DoDEA, and D.C. have fully adopted the Common Core and Minnesota has adopted only the ELA standards. Common Core State Standards Adoption CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems5

6 “These standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business.”  CCSSM, page 5 CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems “Common Core State Standards call for “game changing” shifts in not only what students are expected to know and do, but also major shifts in how teachers design and facilitate instruction, and how principals support teachers to make the shifts.” - Learning Forward, 2012 Handout 2: Game Planning for the Common Core Blog 6

7 Washington’s Context CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems  Superintendent Dorn’s Priorities  McCleary Case – Basic Ed Funding Implications  Implementation of state statutes and initiatives that impact professional learning systems at all levels  Approved ESEA Flexibility Request and new accountability systems (CCSS and TPEP) 7

8 Our State Learning Goals are the Foundation (HB 1209+) CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 2. Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; arts; and health and fitness; 3. Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and 4. Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities. 5. Updated in 2011: SSB 5392) 1. Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with a variety of audiences; 8

9 Why Common Core State Standards for Washington? CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems  C: Clarity. The standards are focused on what’s most important. They are coherent and clear. They are honest about time.  C: Collaboration. States can pool resources and expertise to implement the standards.  S: Student success. The standards are benchmarked to high national and international standards. Students will develop the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.  S: Same. Expectations are the same for students across most states, so they don’t lose ground when they move from one state to another. 9

10 Washington’s Reading (2005), Writing (2005) and Math (2008) Standards Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics Adopted July, 2011 Assessed Washington’s K-12 Learning Standards Landscape (CCSS-M, CCSS-ELA, EALRS, GLEs, PEs,) CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems Washington’s Science Standards (2009) Current Standards Continue as WA Considers the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) NGSS Final Spring 2013 Adoption may occur in Jan/Feb Assessment of NGSS , more likely Learning Standards/Guidelines in: Social Studies The Arts Health and Fitness World Languages Ed Tech Early Learning and Development, B-Gr.3 Current Standards Continue Intentional connections will be made across subjects focused on building literacy skills across content areas 10

13 ESEA Flexibility CAREER AND COLLEGE READY LEARNING EXPECTATIONS FOR K All students leave high school college and career ready Vision Purpose Core Values Every Washington Student and Educator Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with resources that support partners at all levels in their preparation of educators and students to implement the CCSS.

14 Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCSS Implementation in WA CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 2-Prongs: 1. The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators)  Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build for CCSS; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content. 2. The How: System “Remodeling”  Belief that successful CCSS implementation will not take place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…”  Professional learning systems are critical A Vision for the Common Core 14

16 CCSS ELA and Mathematics What are they are why are they important? CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems The What: CCSS Content Shifts 16

17  Shifts in ELA 1.Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literature 2.Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text 3.Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary These apply to content area (social studies, science, and technical subject) teachers as well as to English teachers.  Shifts in Mathematics 1.Focus: 2-3 topics focused on deeply in each grade 2.Coherence: Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the grade 3.Rigor: Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts The “What”: ELA and Math Content Shifts CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 17

18 WA 3-Year Transition Plans and Standards Comparisons CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems K Foundational Skills: Print Concepts & Phonological Awareness Foundational Skills: Phonics & Word Recognition, Fluency Reading Literature & Informational text, including literary nonfiction: Balance K-5 = 50% literature* & 50%* informational text Reading Literature – stories, drama, poetry: Balance grade 6-8 = 45%* Balance gr = 30%* Reading informational, including literary nonfiction: Balance 6-8 = 55%* Balance gr = 70%* Literacy (Reading) in History/Social Studies, Science, and Other Technical Subjects Writing Standards: Balance of Text Types: grades 4 – opinion = 30%; information = 35%; narrative = 35% Literacy (Writing) in History/Social Studies, Science, and Other Technical Subjects: Grade 8 – argument = 35%; information = 35%; narrative = 30% Grade 12 – argument = 40%; information = 40%; narrative = 20% Speaking & Listening Standards Language Standards, including vocabulary acquisition and use English Language Arts Major Shifts 1.Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction. 2.Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational. 3.Regular practice with complex text and its academic language Washington’s 3-Year Transition Plans for Mathematics and English Language Arts Articulate foci of state-developed and delivered professional learning supports each year. Attend to: Comparisons of current WA standards with CCSS (structural and content) Current MSP/HSPE test maps 18

19 The How: System “Remodeling” ~ KY Professional Learning Task Force Report, 2012 “Professional learning is an individual and collective responsibility that fosters shared accountability among the entire education workforce for student achievement.” CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 19

20 CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 1. What do all students need to know and be able to do as a result of the CCSS? 2. What do the adults in the system need to know and be able to do to support all students? 3. How do we design a professional learning system to support them? 20

23 Where to Start…FIRST: Phase 1 – CCSS Exploration and Awareness CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems Among…  District leaders, Boards, and leadership teams  Building leaders and building teams  Key community stakeholders Immerse in …  The WHY - The background and vision of the CCSS  The WHAT - The major CCSS shifts in ELA and Math  The HOW –  Our state’s approach toward supporting implementation  Emerging resources and support systems 23

24 NEXT: Consider Phase 2 within your District / Community Context CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems Start the transition by Setting the Course!  Identify a core group of leaders (across roles, grades, and subjects) as a lead CCSS implementation team  Establish a shared vision and plan that will guide CCSS implementation with all students and educators – what will it mean for your district/community?  What will your district, buildings, and teachers need to do differently as a result of the CCSS?  What is your role as a Director to create the conditions that will facilitate the transition and support to all educators? 24

25 Building Educator Capacity is KEY CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems “Current teachers must receive extensive professional development on the Common Core standards, curricular materials, and strategies on teaching that now require students to delve deeper and develop critical thinking and analytical skills that previous standards did not adequately address…” ~ National Association of State Boards of Education (2011) 25

26 To Discuss and Consider CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems What is your role in supporting your district’s transition to the CCSS? 1. What opportunities and challenges and do you anticipate with your district’s transition to the CCSS? 2. How can school directors create the conditions for this transition?  Vision-setting?  Resource direction / mobilization?  Instructional materials?  Professional learning structures and time?  Cross-program/educator professional learning? 26

27 What about the Assessment System? CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems 27

28 New Assessments More rigorous tests measuring student progress toward “college and career readiness” Have common, comparable scores across member states, and across consortia Provide achievement and growth information to help make better educational decisions and professional development opportunities Assess all students, except those with “significant cognitive disabilities” Administer online, with timely results Use multiple measures Source: Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 68 / Friday, April 9, 2010 pp CCSS Webinar Series - Part II Systems28
