1 Common Core State Standards: From Standards to Practice WA-ACTE Summer Conference- Yakima, WAPresented byDr. Karen Bergh Dr. Vivian BaglienSarah Mc Coy, MSAugust 5, 2014
2 Common Core State Standards Adopted by 47 states (Washington State in 2011)Provide:**Consistent learning expectations for all students.**Clear standards that focus on understanding overmemorization.**Emphasis on the critical topics students need to succeed afterhigh school.**Faster testing results, more focused online testing systemWashington 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/
3 Where are you in the planning and implementation process?
4 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
5 Common Core Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy Is an integrated model of literacyThe standards proposes that responsibility for students’ literacy development (reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language) is shared within the schoolCollege and Career Readiness:Demonstrate independenceBuild strong content knowledgeComprehend as well as critiqueValue evidenceRespond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and disciplineUse technology and digital media strategically and capablyCome to understand other perspectives and cultures
6 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 fromtext both literary and informational.III. Regular practice with complex text and its academiclanguage.
7 Common Core State Standards- Math Make sense of problems and persevere in solving themReason Abstractly and quantitativelyConstruct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of othersModel with mathematicsUse appropriate tools strategicallyAttend to precisionLook for and make use of structureLook for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
8 Common Core State Standards: Three Changes in Math I. Focus strongly where the Standards focusII. 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.
10 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?
11 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 explainShift from content knowledge from teacher to content knowledge from a balance of reading, writing, lecture, and hands on experience.
12 We will now think Integrated Interdisciplinary Lessons planned around multiple standards, integrating reading, writing, speaking/listening, and language.InterdisciplinaryPair up with other disciplines to create a unitCross-curricular conversations among teachers and between them.
13 7 ways the Common Core State Standards will change your classroom Depth not width---Nonfiction, not fictionEvidence is requiredSpeaking and listeningTechnology is part of most/all standards21st century skills are emphasized across subject areaAn increase in rigor
15 Standards into Practice: Some Examples & Applications Presented by Dr. Vivian G. Baglien, Instructor Auburn Mountainview High School
16 Putting Your Frameworks to Work Established frameworks should be the foundation of your teachingInstead 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.
17 Begin with a StandardThe lesson is based on grade-level standards, is meaningful and relevantIt is beyond the task at hand (e.g., relates to abroader purpose or context suchas problem-solving, citizenship, etc.), andhelps students learn and applyIt contains transferable knowledge and skills.
18 Standards into Practice National Standard- exampleParenting : 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.
19 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 -
20 Example from Baby Unit, Independent Living Power Standards: PS 1: FCS Analyze strategies to manage multiple roles and responsibilities (individual, family, career, community, and global)Learning Target or Outcome- Analyze roles and responsibilities of parentingTeaching application-Students will research and analyze the costs of raising a baby for one year in a group project.
21 Student Project on the Costs of Raising a Child
22 Example from Baby Unit- Independent Living Learning Target: Students will research and analyze the costs of raising a baby for one year in a groupproject.The Cost of Raising a Child FromBirth to One YearDirections: 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 persuasivelyET1.1.1Generate ideas and create original works for personal and group expression using a variety of digital tools-Power Standards: PS 1: FCS 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 inferencesand draw conclusions based on data.
