4 WHY ARE WE CHANGING FROM CURRICULUM CENTRAL ONLINE (CCO)?

5 FORETHOUGHT a computer-based system that seamlessly links and aligns all teaching, learning and assessment components so that teachers and administrators are able to focus on teaching and meeting the needs of each and every student.

6 FORETHOUGHT A TRUE CURRICULUM ONLINE where now: ALL curriculum documents Resources Calendars Scope and Sequence Year at a Glance EVERYTHING curriculum… is online, in the same place, with your lesson planner built right in so that all of the above is at your fingertips, based on you and your teaching assignment A TRUE CURRICULUM ONLINE where now: ALL curriculum documents Resources Calendars Scope and Sequence Year at a Glance EVERYTHING curriculum… is online, in the same place, with your lesson planner built right in so that all of the above is at your fingertips, based on you and your teaching assignment

EVERYTHING ALIGNED: Standards, Resources, Assessments EVERYTHING ALIGNED: Standards, Resources, Assessments COLLABORATION features: share lesson plans and Team Planners All Content Area curriculum in a CONSISTENT FORMAT Everything is web- based and ACCESSIBLE 24/7

8 Sneak Peek

9 WHAT IS AN ALIGNED CURRICULUM SYSTEM?

10 FORETHOUGHT: FORETHOUGHT: A COMMON LESSON PLANNING TEMPLATE Planning for Learning MISCONCEPTIONS

11 MisconceptionsTruths 1. This new system is going to take away all of my creativity. Collaboration and creativity will be encouraged. Forethought will provide teachers an easier way to access lessons that have proven successful. 2. I am not going to be able to use any of the lessons that I have created over the years. Teachers still have the autonomy to determine the most appropriate way to present the content to students. 3. I am going to have to say and do exactly what every other teacher in the district will be doing.

12 MisconceptionsTruths 4. This new system is going to make lesson planning very difficult. Forethought is designed with the teacher in mind. The standards, unit maps, student data, resources, assessments and other components of lesson design are right at your fingertips. It is assumed that you would stay relatively close to the pace so that your students would arrive at the finish line at the appropriate time. However, there is no expectation that every teacher in the same content area will be on the same page on the same day. 5. I am not going to be able to move ahead or fall behind even one day with this new system. All of the resources that are currently included in CCO will be available in Forethought. 6. I am going to have a very limited number of resources to use with this new system. 7. I am going to have to be very tech savvy to navigate this new system. The system is intuitive and very user-friendly. Even the least tech-savvy among BISD teachers will easily be able to maneuver through the entire system.

16 PLANNING FOR TEACHING FRONTWARD DESIGN = LOOSELY ALIGNED 1. Topic: Identifies a topic of study from the Scope and Sequence 2. Learning Activities Develops lessons and activities to help students learn about the topic 3. Assessment Creates an assessment for the end of the unit (based on what has been taught ) The Teacher…

17 PLANNING FOR LEARNING BACKWARD DESIGN = DEEP ALIGNMENT Performance Standards: Closely examines curriculum and then designs lessons that are tightly aligned to the Standards (TEKS): what students must know and be able to do Evidences of Learning: Gathers formative and summative assessments and/or rubrics that accurately measure student mastery of unit learning objectives (evidence gathered throughout the learning) Learning Activities: Selects strategies that will actively engage students leading them to master the learning: what they should know and be able to do Look at the end result first. Then decide how students will provide evidence of their learning, and finally design instructional activities to help kids learn what is needed to be successful. The Teacher…

18 Planning for Learning is: BACKWARD DESIGN Teacher: 1.Studies the Standards for assessment and performance requirements 2.Plans the formative and summative assessment 3.Designs lessons with the end result in mind. a Results Orientation Deeply aligned to curriculum Based upon what students need to know and be able to do Emphasis is on what students are doing to meet the performance standards (formative and summative assessments) instead of what the teacher is doing Deeply aligned to curriculum Based upon what students need to know and be able to do Emphasis is on what students are doing to meet the performance standards (formative and summative assessments) instead of what the teacher is doing Planning for TEACHING is: FRONTWARD DESIGN Teacher: 1.Chooses Topic 2.Plans Lessons 3.Plans Assessment at the end of Unit. a Methodology Orientation

25 Procedure, Strategies, and Structures You steer your car and make decisions about how you will make your way around the track. You can steer left to right or look at street signs and the landscape.
