Common Core State Standards: From Standards to Practice WA-ACTE Summer Conference- Yakima, WA Presented by Dr. Karen Bergh Dr. Vivian Baglien Sarah Mc Coy, MS August 5, 2014
Common Core State Standards 1. Adopted by 47 states (Washington State in 2011) 2. Provide: **Consistent learning expectations for all students. **Clear standards that focus on understanding over memorization. **Emphasis on the critical topics students need to succeed after high school. **Faster testing results, more focused online testing system Washington plans to be fully implemented by school year and student achievement will be measured by a new assessment system. https://www.k12.wa.us/corestandards/https://www.k12.wa.us/corestandards/
Where are you in the planning and implementation process?
The Standards- What they do and do not do: Do define what all students are expected to know and be able to do, do not define how teachers teach. Do focus on what is most essential, do not describe all that can or should be taught. Do recognize the literacy components that are critical to college readiness, do not define the whole of readiness.. Do set grade specific standards, do not define the intervention. Do not define the full range of supports for special needs. Do not define the nature of advanced work for those who meet the standards prior to graduation
Common Core Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy Is an integrated model of literacy The standards proposes that responsibility for students’ literacy development (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language) is shared within the school College and Career Readiness: Demonstrate independence Build strong content knowledge Comprehend as well as critique Value evidence Respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline Use technology and digital media strategically and capably Come to understand other perspectives and cultures
Common Core State Standards: Three changes in English Language Arts/Literacy: I. Building knowledge through content rich nonfiction. II. Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text both literary and informational. III. Regular practice with complex text and its academic language.
Common Core State Standards- Math 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them 2. Reason Abstractly and quantitatively 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others 4. Model with mathematics 5. Use appropriate tools strategically 6. Attend to precision 7. Look for and make use of structure 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
Common Core State Standards: Three Changes in Math I. Focus strongly where the Standards focus II. Coherence: thinking across grades, and linking to major topics within grades. III. Rigor: in major topics pursue: conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity.
What does this mean?
Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) How do you see STEM layering with Common Core, 21st Century Skills, technical knowledge and skills, and core academic knowledge?
Instruction Changes How will we approach teaching? Teaching changes from giving students the answer to having students apply knowledge to real world situations. Students must find the answer and explain Shift from content knowledge from teacher to content knowledge from a balance of reading, writing, lecture, and hands on experience.
We will now think Integrated Lessons planned around multiple standards, integrating reading, writing, speaking/listening, and language. Interdisciplinary Pair up with other disciplines to create a unit Cross-curricular conversations among teachers and between them.
7 ways the Common Core State Standards will change your classroom Depth not width--- Nonfiction, not fiction Evidence is required Speaking and listening Technology is part of most/all standards 21 st century skills are emphasized across subject area An increase in rigor
How will this look in our content area?
Standards into Practice: Some Examples & Applications Presented by Dr. Vivian G. Baglien, Instructor Auburn Mountainview High School
Putting Your Frameworks to Work Established frameworks should be the foundation of your teaching Instead of parking the document on the back shelf, use it ! Combine the frameworks with technology and you have a recipe for student understanding and success.
Begin with a Standard The lesson is based on grade-level standards, is meaningful and relevant It is beyond the task at hand (e.g., relates to a broader purpose or context such as problem-solving, citizenship, etc.), and helps students learn and apply It contains transferable knowledge and skills.
Standards into Practice National Standard- example Parenting : Evaluate the effects of parenting roles and responsibilities on strengthening the well being of individuals and families. What is the competency or content standard desired in the outcome behavior or learning target? Next develop the outcome or learning target.
Learning Targets Learning targets are easier than you think! What do want your students to learn? Refer to your framework either those done in your district, OSPI or Natefacs website. Learning targets are those power standards identified by Family and Consumer Sciences National Standards and Competencies -
Example from Baby Unit, Independent Living Power Standards: PS 1: FCS 1..1 Analyze strategies to manage multiple roles and responsibilities (individual, family, career, community, and global) Learning Target or Outcome- Analyze roles and responsibilities of parenting Teaching application-Students will research and analyze the costs of raising a baby for one year in a group project.
Student Project on the Costs of Raising a Child
Example from Baby Unit- Independent Living Learning Target: Students will research and analyze the costs of raising a baby for one year in a group project. The Cost of Raising a Child From Birth to One Year Directions: You will develop a brochure or power point that will cover one of the assigned topics. This is done individually, even though others are working on the same topic. Create a colorful, informative and accurate brochure or info-graphic that would outline and describe the costs of raising a child for one year in your area. Common CORE Standards: SL1 Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on- one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 11–12 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively ET1.1.1Generate ideas and create original works for personal and group expression using a variety of digital tools- Power Standards: PS 1: FCS 1..1 Analyze strategies to manage multiple roles and responsibilities (individual, family, career, community, and global) STEM- Technology- Use a variety of technology and online tools to gather information, analyze, prowess and present information. Math-M1.5.C Make valid inferences and draw conclusions based on data.
