4 Common Core Institute Fellowship 4 Grant is designed to provide school districts with a Common Core Institute Award, with a Sponsored Common Core Institute Fellowship. The Awardees are recognized statewide as Common Core Institutes (CCI) that will serve as sites that are committed to implementing the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) to the fullest extent.

18 Ease of Access- Providing Student Materials 18

19 AIR: Building bridges between texts (p.1) 19 Providing an AIR text list for students- can be thematically or topically grouped Intertextual connections Cross-curricular

20 Standards for Students: Purpose setting and reflection (pp. 2-3) 20 Students are reflecting on their learning through assessing their progress with the standard

21 Teacher Tools: Modeling, Appendix Materials (pp. 4-7) 21

22 Reinforcing Effective Reading Practices (pp. 8-10) 22

23 Pacing: Let’s problem solve… What are some of the major problems we’re facing as we try to incorporate all 4 modules?  Module Replacement  Close Reading Using focus excerpts to teach concepts and skills  Text-Dependent Questions Eliminating Questions that aren’t directly tied to your learning target/ addressed standards for the lesson/Mid & End Unit  Quick Writes Adapting to fit the needs of your students and your classroom 23

24 Making a Quick Write work for YOUR Classroom I started by…  Knowing the text WELL  Knowing the standard(s) that are being assessed  Looking at high performance responses  Using Question stems 24

25 Make it your own. (pp.11-16) Take a few minutes to read through the text excerpt from Temple Grandin’s Animals in Translation. Read the original QW prompt on p.11 Take a minute to peruse the examples of adapted QWs on pp. 14-16 Initial thoughts… 25

26 Now let’s try it! QW adaptation template (p. 20) Prompt & Standards (p.11) Standards aligned question stems (pp. 17-19) Read the prompt & break it down: What does the student need to be able to do? What is the standard asking? These should be aligned; but not identical. Find the aligned Question Stems on the chart Try writing a question… Process (w/ template)Materials 26

27 What can an Exit Ticket do for your classroom? Give you a CRAZY amount of data  You can either go the “got it”/”don’t got it” route of sorting it into two piles, with the respective names.  Get crazy with using more in-depth categories like (can teach it, medium-high, medium-low, doesn’t get it at all)  Pair students off the next day depending on their understanding level (differentiated groups) I recommend digitizing your results.  You can keep student answers on file in a digital portfolio, grade them anywhere,  Have them auto-graded. (Flubaroo) 27

28 The digital portfolio is huge:  Compare results within a classroom, across the grade, and even from year to year. Focus on what students DON’T know  Or you find out that they mastered something, and move on  or even reward them with something interesting or exciting! YAY! Instead of giving out star stickers everyday, why not let students know where they stand? You’ll know exactly what to teach and get the satisfaction of meeting your students exactly where they are to drive better learning. 28
