3 Why Common Core? O M4i6tY&safe=active M4i6tY&safe=active

4 Guiding Questions How are collaborative partnerships essential to implementing the CCLS? How do collaborative efforts support student learning? How can outreach support CCLS implementation? Board of Regents: C. Menetti, J. Rapant

5 Essential Partnerships How are collaborative partnerships essential to implementing the CCLS? Collaboration changes philosophy and practice –Need to reach out to others to explore opportunities for CCLS implementation –Efforts to collaborate with other teaching professionals, agencies and groups revealed the collaborative demand of CCLS Board of Regents: C. Menetti, J. Rapant

6 Student Learning How do collaborative efforts support student learning?

7 Teacher and Librarian Collaborative Model –Librarians are uniquely qualified for CCLS implementation –Co-Teaching Bridging the gaps: curriculum alignment –Common Core Learning Standards and Empire State Information Fluency Continuum Text complexity Access to resources Board of Regents: C. Menetti, J. Rapant

8 WHAT IS TEXT COMPLEXITY?  Three dimensions of text complexity from CCSS  Quantitative measures to assign a text to a grade band  Basic reading level charts to help determine word frequency, sentence length, etc.  Qualitative measures to locate a text within a specific grade band  More complicated – text structure, language clarity, prior knowledge, meaning & purpose  Professional judgment to decide how a text is suited for specific instructional purpose with students Student Task Reading Levels Text Features CCSS-IFC Workshop: C. Menetti, J. Rapant

9  You found an article  You know the reading level  I know what I want the kids to get from the article: The students need to understand that acid rain is a by- product of fossil fuel emissions and disturbs the pH balance and acidity of the oceans in the world.  WRONG!  This is content driven  Still important BUT not what you need to achieve CCSS literacy skills ALL FINISHED? CCSS-IFC Workshop: C. Menetti, J. Rapant

11 Text Complexity Student Task Reading Levels Text Features Text complexity necessitates deliberate selection of materials which librarians are uniquely qualified to facilitate Out of the Dust unit Jackdaws primary sources Deliberate selection of informational texts leveled across reading abilities for student comprehension Close reading skills Formative and summative written assessments CCLS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.1 Board of Regents: C.
