TERMINOLOGY ACRE ACRE - North Carolina's Accountability and Curriculum Reform Effort - comprehensive initiative to redefine the Standard Course of Study for K-12 students, the student assessment program and the school accountability model. Common Core Common Core - provides a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.
TERMINOLOGY CONTINUED Essential Standards - The critical skills, knowledge, and dispositions each student must acquire as a result of each course, grade level, and unit of instruction. Crosswalk - simply: "A crosswalk links two or more different classification systems." Strand - A strand is a consistent thread running through a course irrespective of its subject content Anchor Statement - further defines what students should understand... standard to support the broad college and career ready standards statement.
INTEGRATION NOT ISOLATION Keep in mind that English Language Development, Guidance, and Information and Technology Essential Standards must be delivered through ALL content areas. It is also the responsibility of ALL teachers to ensure that they are working with AIG, EC, and ESL teachers to deliver the appropriate services and standards for students.
K-12 College and Career Readiness (CCR) Anchor Standards Over-arching (broad) anchor standards for each strand that are further defined by grade-specific standards Grade-Level Standards in English Language Arts K-8, grade-by-grade 9-10 and grade bands for high school Four strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects
Todays Activity Part 1 – Distribute: Standards for Literacy Document How to read the document and label reading and writing
STANDARDS FOR LITERACY DOCUMENT How to identify grade-specific Reading Strategies Example: RL. 9 – 10.1 Strand: Key Ideas and Details Grade Span: ( 9-10 ) Standard Number: 1 Cite specific textural evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions
LOOKING DEEPER: CCR ANCHOR STANDARD FOR READING Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Text RI. 7 1.Mark/highlight the changes to the standard at each grade level, looking for what is different. 2.Focus on how expectations change
STANDARDS FOR LITERACY DOCUMENT How to identify grade-specific Writing Strategies Example: W. 9 – 10.1 Strand: Writing Grade Span: ( 9-10 ) Standard Number: 1.e Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from or supports the argument presented.
