Selma Unified April 2013
ELA Standards 1. Reading Literature and Information 2. Writing 3. Speaking and Listening 4. Language 5. Foundational (K-5) or Literacy Standards(6-12) Similar content Change in delivery
Where are we in the ELA roll out? Foundation for the Common Core Speaking and Listening Cooperative Structures Writing , Reading , Introduction to the Common Core Language , 14-15
In the Common Core… 1. Reading and writing are interdependent processes 2. Writing is mainly generated from acts of Reading 3. ELA standards are largely going to be assessed through student writing 4. Rubrics are going to be used to grade ELA assessments
Reading and Writing are Connected
Common Core Cycle for ELA Instruction Writing with Evidence from Reading Teaching Channel
The Literacy and ELA Cycle for Common Core Instruction Writing is generated from acts of Reading ______________________________________________________
Concentric Cycles of ELA Instruction- a ripple effect
Let’s Think and Share Writing is a way for students to communicate their thinking and provide evidence of their literacy. Writing should not be isolated from the reading experience. Share your thoughts with a partner about how you can adapt your curriculum to provide students more opportunities to engage in the read-think-write cycle. (Rally Robin)
ELA Assessments in the Common Core The blueprint for CC Assessments delineates assessment tasks into three types 1. Selected Response Items/SR- multiple choice items 2. Constructed Response Items/CR- short responses to text based questions 3. Performance Task/PT- Longer essay responses written in a text type/genre or as research writing Link to SBAC Training Test.
Selected Response - Sample Item
Constructed Response - Sample Item and Rubric
Performance Task -Sample Items and Rubrics
The Key Types of Writing in the Common Core 1. Three Text Types for Writing 1. Explanatory * 2. Opinion/Argumentative * 3. Narrative 2. Research Writing 3. Short Response Writing-Evidence Based Writing from Reading* * Focus for PD 2013/2014 Read Appendix A pg. 23
Key Steps for SUSD to Transition to Implementing Common Core Standards in Writing 1. Add Constructed response and performance task items to the benchmarks in : Benchmark One Remove the Benchmark 1 writing prompt Add 2 Constructed Response items (assesses short response) The rest of the benchmark will stay the same. Benchmark Two Remove the Benchmark 2 writing prompt Add a Performance Task to BM2 (assesses one of the text types/genre) The rest of the benchmark will stay the same.
Key Steps for SUSD to Transition to Implementing Common Core Standards in Writing 2. Adjust the pacing guide for writing to include the new writing text types
District Action Steps May Writing pacing and assessment is shared with staff 2. District/sites collect feedback from staff on writing pacing guides and need for support to implement the writing shifts August Teachers begin to practice reading–thinking-writing (Literacy Cycle) lessons starting in August (Grades K-12) 2. Convene CC Teacher teams: 1. Grades K-2 team to backwards map Grade 4 ELA standards 2. Grades K-12 team to further develop writing and ELA roll out 3. PD for explanatory writing and CR for Grades 3, 5, 6 in Sept. 4. BM1 includes 2 CR items (Grades 3-12 ) 5. PD for opinion/argumentative writing and PT for K-12 in first semester 6. BM2 includes a PT item using Opinion/Argumentative writing
To Conclude Think- Write- Round Robin Think about: The literacy cycle The adjustments to the Pacing Guide How will these changes support you in bridging to the Common Core?
