Marshal Hurst LDC/MDC Coordinator Professional Development (501)
Beginning in 2009 the Gates Foundation supported a grant to develop a national literacy strategy that would transform the CCSS into practice. The result is the Literacy Design Collaborative.
▶ To engage students in reading, comprehending, analyzing, interpreting, and responding to complex texts ▶ To align assignments to the CCSS and to promote collaboration ▶ To help teachers personalize learning so that every student can master the CCSS ▶ To ensure that all students can be college and career ready ▶ The reading and writing skills embedded in LDC are key elements of Post-Secondary and Workforce Readiness skills
Students engaging in learning Students focusing on the LDC task Students working together Students reading to learn content Students persisting to complete tasks
A bank of reading/writing tasks The module template Tasks Skills Instruction Results Scoring rubrics Local and national collaboration Access to a community of educators with LDC modules aligned to course content and to CCSS
Task Prompt 11: After researching speeches which use persuasive techniques, write a report in which you define persuasion and explain its impact on an audience. Support your discussion with evidence from your readings.. Write an article that persuades someone to think or do something. LDC Writing Task Previous Writing “Assignments”
Preparing for the Task Reading Process Bridging Writing Process
Each skill required is defined. There are multiple skills in each cluster. Clusters 1-4 are completed in order. The Content is embedded throughout the skill clusters.
Teachers establish the instructional plan – and instructional ladder – to teach students the skills necessary to succeed on the task Students are taught each skill through a “mini-task” Mini-tasks connect across the 2-4 weeks to lead students to completing the task
Product If you were climbing a ladder, you wouldn’t want to miss a rung. This is also true in teaching students how to create a final product
A group of curriculum designers, assessment developers, professional learning specialists, and district and school networks. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has funded MDC to develop high-quality instructional tools and professional support services to realize its ambitious goal of having 80% of low-income and minority students ready for college by 2025.
Students and teachers Using evidence of learning To adapt teaching and learning To meet immediate learning needs Minute-to-minute and day-by-day
Formative Assessment 1. Clarifying and sharing learning intentions and criteria for success 2. Engineering effective discussions, questions and learning tasks that elicit evidence of learning. 3. Providing feedback that moves learners forward. 4. Activating students as the owners of their own learning. 5. Activating students as instructional resources for one another.
These five key ingredients are designed to ensure that students are engaged in a productive struggle with mathematics rather than on the receiving end of a lecture
Pre-Lesson Assessment Write feedback questions based on student work Collaborative activity based on skills and concepts Whole Class discussion. Student take post-lesson assessment and answer teacher-developed feedback questions. Two to three days to implement
Not for grading purposes!! Intent is for FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT
Looking for the OMG’s Obstacles Misconceptions Gaps in Learning
Questioning Techniques We do not want to GPS the students. Do not take the thinking away from the students
CCSS All students will graduate from high school college and career ready. PARCC Evidence-Based Selected Response Technology-Enhanced Constructed Response Range of Prose Constructed Responses ESEA Flexibility Plan As our students demonstrate their increasing achievement, our schools will continue to move out of school improvement.
