5 Common Core Groups and Functions 5 Oakland County Mathematics and English Language Arts Leadership Teams These groups make content area decisions for the project and assist with the development of the materials. In addition, they assist with the professional development process and materials. They are expected to be leaders back in their local district assisting with implementing the Common Core Curriculum. In some cases they facilitate grade level pilot and review teams. Each district has one representative on each subject area team. In some cases they may have more than one.

6 Common Core Groups and Functions 6 Writing Teams These groups consist of contractors and local district teachers that develop the units, lessons and assessment for review by the pilot and review teams. The size of the writing groups differs depending on the needs of the subject area and grade level. Behind the Scenes: Prior to writing teams meeting, internal K-12 ELA consultants meet to study standards alignment.

11 Common Core Groups and Functions 11 Pilot and Review Teams These groups consist of teachers per grade level to pilot materials in their classroom, collect classroom artifacts, provide feedback to the writing team, and possibly train teachers back in their district. Members will sometimes assist in developing templates or tools to scaffold student learning in a lesson. Teachers should be knowledgeable about the subject area and willing to share with their colleagues back in the district.

12 Common Core Groups and Functions 12 Train the Trainers These are teachers from the piloting and review teams or from the district recommendations. Ideally we would like one teacher per grade level from each district.

13 Implementation 13 The Phase II units will be released for implementation in August 2012 (four units per grade level). Phase III units will be released for implementation in August K1st2nd…11th Unit 1 … Unit 2 … Unit 3. Unit 3. Unit 3. …Unit 3.

14 Moving Toward Assessing the Common Core in Michigan 14 What we think we know… What we don’t know yet… The MEAP tests will stay in place for at least four more years (Fall ). The new assessments will be ready for use by the school year. Given during the last 6-12 weeks of school. – MEAP and MME remain the same with the overall focus on improving practice. – MEAP minimally modified (begin to remove items related to standards not present in the CCSS) with continued focus on instruction and formative assessment – lots of CCSS assessment item pilots and some initial release of items – MEAP minimally modified again and continued focus on formative assessment – Full implementation - Instruction and Assessment based on CCSS 1.We don’t know what will happen with MME. 2.We don’t know how or if new assessment items will be phased in.

21 Assessing the Common Core 21 Beyond the Bubble Tests: The Next Generation of Assessments -- Secretary Arne Duncan's Remarks to State Leaders at Achieve's American Diploma Project Leadership Team Meeting September 2, 2010 …this new generation of assessments-- combined with the unprecedented development of common college and career-ready standards--is a game- changer in K-12 education. But that doesn't mean that the implementation of college-ready standards and assessments will bring us to educational nirvana a few short years from now. As important as better assessments are, they are not a pedagogical silver bullet.

22 Assessing the Common Core 22 Beyond the Bubble Tests: The Next Generation of Assessments -- Secretary Arne Duncan's Remarks to State Leaders at Achieve's American Diploma Project Leadership Team Meeting September 2, 2010 Standards and assessments are only the foundation upon which states will construct high-quality curriculum, professional development, and all the other pieces that will support teachers preparing to teach to these new standards and students learning at higher levels. While these assessments will not be ready until , this work of transitioning to new standards should start tomorrow. In fact, we are seeing the work beginning now in districts across the country.

How will I share this information, and what challenges might I face? How might I support my colleagues and what resources might help? What discussions need to be continued within my district to support CCSS implementation?
