Orientation to New CA CTE Model Curriculum Standards Presented by: Kit Alvarez September 5, 2013
New Standards What emotion and thoughts do the words “new standards” evoke ?
Activity (Instructional Strategy) Whip Around: Fast One word response Record words Reflect Directions: stand, say word, record, sit, next… (quickly)
Reflect What theme(s) surfaced? What is the value of this instructional strategy? How does this activity inform the instructor/presenter? How can you use this strategy? How might you modify the strategy?
Workshop Objectives Upon completing this session, you will be able to: 1.Explain why CTE standards were changed 2.Identify components of the New CTE Model Curriculum Standards 3.Identify implementation strategies
Objective #1: Why were the standards changed? “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” Winston Churchill
Drivers of Change 7 change
Activity: Think Pair Share (Instructional Strategy) Directions: In 4 minutes (2 minutes each partner) share with your partner why you think standards should or should not change. Report out
Objective #1 Complete!
Objective #2: Identify components of new CTE MCS “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” Frederick Douglass
New Standards- What’s Different 11
MCS 2013 Standards for Career Ready Practice Industry Sector Anchor Standards Pathway Standards CCSS Matrix MCS 2005 Industry Sector Foundation Standards Pathway Standards
Industry Sector Changes OldNew Building, Trades and Construction Building and Construction Trades Finance and BusinessBusiness and Finance Information TechnologyInformation and Communications Technologies Engineering and DesignEngineering and Architecture Energy and UtilitiesEnergy, Environment, and Utilities
What I like Unique within each industry sector Organized by careers within the industry sector of similar functions, services, and work environments Action verbs in place of “know and understand” Build from simple to complex - knowledge and performance Fewer, clearer, deeper, reasonable in scope Research and evidence based Aligned with postsecondary and work expectations
Standards Continuum: Standards for Career Ready Practice 15
Career Ready Practices describe the fundamental career ready knowledge and skills a career ready student needs to prepare for transition to postsecondary education, career training, or the workforce. These practices are not exclusive to a career pathway, a Career Technical Education (CTE) program of study, a particular discipline, or level of education. Career Ready Practices are taught and reinforced in all career exploration and preparation programs with increasingly higher levels of complexity and expectation as a student advances through a program of study. Career Ready practices are a valuable resource to CTE and academic teachers designing curricula and … 16 Standards for Career Ready Practice
Activity (Instructional Strategy) Reflection: Think about your current practices. Circle symbols as follows: ★ = I’m a Super Star ✔ = I’m competent = I could integrate this = I need information or help on this Review with partner.
Standards Continuum: Industry Sector Anchor Standards 18
Knowledge and Performance Anchor Standards by Industry Sector
22 Knowledge and Performance Anchor Standards Anchor Standard 2.0, 3.0,
23 Anchor Standard Performance Indicators Performance Indicators 2.1, 2.2,
Customized Performance Indicators Arts, Media, Entertainment Construction Trades 24
Activity (Instructional Strategy) Anchors Away Review page 6 (in booklet) for a description of each Industry Sector Anchor Standard Analyze your Anchor Performance Indicator Post your Anchor Indicator to its Parent Anchor on the wall
Review & Reflection Assign groups to each Anchor Standard, # 2-11 Evaluate placement of indicators Move misplaced standards to its proper poster Gallery Walk Observations?

MCS Pathway Standards
32 Changed from Know and Understand to the use of action verbs that are rigorous, clear, specific and measurable.
Performance Indicators increase in rigor 33
34 Academic Alignment Matrix
Check for Understanding Name the major components and or features of the new CTE MCS.
Objective #2 Complete!
"Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit." Conrad Hilton, Hilton Hotels Objective #3: Identify implementation strategies
Reminders as you review Pathway Standards 1. The standards are not a course outline. 2. Courses need not cover every standard. 3. Course lessons should map back to standards. 4. Some pathways have significant changes, some have minimal changes. 5. The purpose is to review the new standards and ensure your course(s) align to standards. 38
Activity: Collaborative Learning (Instructional Strategy) Directions: 1. In like subject area groups, review your pathway standards (10-15 minutes) 2. Identify your ah-ha’s 3. Discuss at least 2 strategies for integrating standards into your course/instruction 4. Report out
Standards Continuum: Industry & Employer Standards 40
Objective #3 Complete!
Closing Activity: Whip Around In one word describe how you are now feeling about the new standards Compare/contrast your word now, verses the word you used to describe your feelings at the beginning of the workshop Better? Worse?
