The Big Ideas (CCSS introduction)CCSS introduction Demonstrate independence Build strong content knowledge Respond to varying demands of audience, task, purpose and discipline Comprehend as well as critique Value evidence Understand other perspectives & cultures Use technology strategically and capably
What has your building already done with CCSS?
“Basically, if you are aiming to increase your collaboration, you'll want to bait your hook. Know the reasons teachers should be opening your doors. You should need a revolving door... or devices connected to your virtual library door. These are information, or ‘evidence,’ reasons for which classrooms should be visiting your library if you are operating within Common Core Standards.” librarydoor.blogspot.com Paige Jaeger: Think Tank Library, Libraries Unlimited, Dec 2014
Why short bursts of inquiry? Students lack basic research skills Builds capacity with frequent practice (student growth!) Collaboration opportunities Flexibility with resources/planning Not a massive research project
Unpacking CCSS: examining the standards
Unpacking RST Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words. Table Group Task: Unpack this standard and look for skills that students will need and that invite collaboration with your classroom teachers. Record your observations and be ready to share out with larger group. Student pre-assessments/skills:Team with:
Share your Table Talk RST Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words. Student pre-assessments/skills:Team with:
Research Burst 1: Infographics, charts, graphs, etc.
RST Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) Example: Select a high interest text that connects to curriculum: Costello, Emily. "Turkey power: could turkey dung power your town?" SuperScience Apr. 2008: 12+. Science in Context. Web. 22 Mar Words to Charts
Graph using MS Chart Wizard
Infographic created with Visual.ly
RST Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words. Charts to Words
Comparison of Energy Consumption in US and China Example: Compare the data from two graphs and write a summary of the differences between the two countries.
Example: Handout for a short burst assignment.

Research Burst 2: Note taking
Sample CCSS for note taking CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; provide an accurate summary of the text distinct from prior knowledge or opinions. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH Distinguish among fact, opinion, and reasoned judgment in a text. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH Compare the point of view of two or more authors for how they treat the same or similar topics, including which details they include and emphasize in their respective accounts. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.8.9 CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.8.9 Analyze a case in which two or more texts provide conflicting information on the same topic and identify where the texts disagree on matters of fact or interpretation.
Writing 6-8.7: Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. Writing 6-8.8: Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation. Example: short research project: Choose a county in WA state. Would you want to move to the county? Support your position using recreational, economic and geographic information. Use official county websites.
Sample note taking resources: Cornell notes Three column notes
Work Time: How do you teach note taking? What is a discreet, high interest topic students can research in one sitting? What topics would pull in your teachers who avoid the research process? What is an inquiry question that avoids the cut and paste mindset? Online Note taking Tools: EvernoteFlashcard Machine SimplenoteSimplenote Google DriveGoogle Drive Quizlet
Research Burst 3: Primary Sources
CCSS History Standards, grades 6-8 CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH Analyze the relationship between a primary and secondary source on the same topic.
RH 6-8.2: Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or opinions. Student Skills: Identify important facts/details in a primary source document (PSD) Comprehend key information in a PSD Distinguish between personal opinions, prior knowledge, factual information

Observe: What do we see in the picture? Reflect: Where/when was this taken? Why was this photo taken? By whom? What do we learn about this historical time period? The people? Attitudes, events? Question: What else do we want to find out? What questions does this raise?

Further Student Investigation/Summary: Summarize your discoveries, using evidence from the text/source to support your ideas. Choose one question you have that you may want to further investigate. Compare how two documents present the same event.
