Common Core Materials List ELAMathScience and Social Studies Lucy Calkins – Units of Study in Opinion, Information, and Narrative Writing (K-5) Ready Common Core Reading Instruction Book (one per student grades K-5) Springboard: Textual Power (one per student in middle school Honors ELA classes) Common Core Curriculum Maps book (one per teacher) Common Core Units of Study with accompanying trade books* (grades K-8) Developing Core Proficiency Units of Study by O’Dell Education (grades 6-12) ERWC Modules (grades 7-8) Ready Common Core Math Instruction Book (one per student grades K-5) Explorations in CORE Math (one per student grades 6-8, and one class set for HS Algebra, Geometry, and Algebra II) Engage NY Math Modules (Grades K-8) Various pilots of Common Core math materials National Geographic: Global Issues Series (multiple class sets of 12 titles per middle school) National Geographic: Learning Reader Series (multiple class sets of seven titles per high school) 27 *Trade books for the units of study were chosen based on the criteria found in Appendix A in the Common Core Standards. Each unit of study is accompanied by 5-10 texts in elementary school. Novels were purchased for each middle school student.
Elementary ELA Three pilot Common Core Units units for each grade level with incorporated performance tasks Support materials: Trade books accompany each unit of study (in- house units of study, curriculum modules from Engage NY) Ready Common Core Instruction Books Lucy Calkins Writing Kits 28
Secondary ELA Middle School Units of Study – Written in-house by instructional coaches using texts found in Appendix A of the Common Core Standards Four short units focused on Common Core instructional shifts for grades 6-12 Reading Closely for Textual Details Making Evidence-Based Claims Researching to Deepen Understanding Building Evidence Based Arguments
Elementary Math Bridge materials – Ready Common Core Books Pilots of math materials – Engage NY Modules, Publisher Adoptions 29
Secondary Math Common Core Bridge Materials – Explorations in Core Math are being used in the following courses: Math 6, Math 7, Math 8, Algebra, Geometry 30
Math Textbook Adoption Process
Discussion Talk to a partner about ways to promote collaborative leadership to support the transition to the common core Share out
Data and Assessments Developing Benchmarks in ELA and Math ELA and Math Common Core Curriculum Teams selected Benchmark test items - 2 constructed response type questions and the rest are selected response questions per grade level Administer it online – every teacher in grades 2-10 will review data, score the constructed response and calibrate their scoring using rubrics through District release day
Benchmark Scoring Days Teachers engage in the following during their training day: Scoring Calibration Training – Teachers works in school teams and analyze sample student answers to constructed response questions using SBAC rubrics. Teachers calibrate their thinking as a team and come to consensus about the attributes that contributed to each student’s score. (90 minutes) Teachers Score Student Responses - Teachers log in to EADMS and score their students’ responses to the constructed response questions. (Up to 90 minutes) Team Planning Time – Teachers work in grade level teams to plan using ELA Common Core Units of Study or Math Modules. (Up to three hours)
Common Core Report Cards Data Action team reviewed samples of CCSS report cards for elementary schools One sample was selected and modified SIS Coordinator is setting it up in PowerSchool Data Action Team will review and then send it out to teachers for feedback Report card will be online for use in Fall 2014 The Data Action Team decided to use GLOs (General Learner Outcomes) to assess students’ 21 st Century Skills in addition to the Common Core Standards Self-Directed Learner Community Contributor Complex Thinker Quality Producer Effective Communicator Effective and Ethical User of Technology
