26 K-12 Social Studies

27 Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy The use of a common taxonomy (Revised Bloom’s or RBT) Conceptually written standards Strands Provides the cognitive framework used for all of the North Carolina Essential Standards Provides common language for all curriculum areas Use of one verb 5/4/2015District and School Transformation27

28 K-12 5/4/2015District and School Transformation28

29 Social Studies: Kindergarten – 5 th Grade K-2: No major content changes 3 rd Grade: Communities 4 th Grade: North Carolina through Reconstruction (2009 General Assembly HB Yearlong instruction on NC history and geography in the elementary grades) The focus of 5 th grade has changed from a geographic study of the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America to a historical study of the United States from pre-colonial times through Reconstruction. 5/4/2015District and School Transformation29

30 6 th Grade: Shift from a study of just Europe and South America to an integrated study of the Ancient World through Exploration 7 th Grade: Shift from a study of just Africa, Asia, and Australia to an integrated study of the Age of Exploration to the present 8 th Grade: Parallel study of the United States and North Carolina (American Revolution – Present) Social Studies: 6 th - 8 th Grades 5/4/2015District and School Transformation30

31 Social Studies: 9 th – 12 th Grades World History addresses all time periods but the key focus is 1500s – present Civics & Economics –Integration of Personal Financial Literacy –Colonial History is moved back into the American History course Two American History courses –Similar standards/objectives –American History I begins with the European exploration of the New World and continues through the era of Reconstruction –American History II begins at the end of the Reconstruction era and continues to present times 5/4/2015District and School Transformation31

32 5/4/2015District and School Transformation32 The Common Core State Standard of Text Complexity: What does it really mean? How can we help make it happen?

33 Text Complexity—Appendix A Qualitative evaluation of the text –Levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demands Quantitative evaluation of the text –Readability measures and other scores of text complexity Matching reader to text and task –Reader variables (such as motivation, knowledge, and experiences) and task variables (such as purpose and the complexity generated by the task assigned and the questions posed) 33 5/4/2015District and School Transformation

34 K-12 texts have become easier; college texts have not. College textbooks, workplace texts, and newspapers are more demanding than materials used in 12 th grade. Instruction with HS texts is heavily scaffolded while students are expected to read independently in college. The reading load in college is substantially more than what students typically experience in lower grades. 34 5/4/2015District and School Transformation The complexity of K-12 texts decreased The complexity of reading demands in college/career increased Rationale for Text Complexity

35 New (Common Core State Standards) and Old (Lexiles) Quantitative Grade Bands * The K-1 suggested Lexile range was not identified by the Common Core State Standards and was added by Kansas. ** Taken from Accelerated Reader and the Common Core State Standards, available at the following URL:

36 Shift in Instruction “... it is important to recognize that scaffolding often is entirely appropriate. The expectation that scaffolding will occur with particularly challenging texts is built into the Standards’ grade- by-grade text complexity expectations, for example. The general movement, however, should be toward decreasing scaffolding and increasing independence both within and across the text complexity bands defined in the standards.” Appendix A

37 Classroom implications of text complexity 5/4/2015 District and School Transformation 37

38 CCSS Text Issues Highlights CCSS intentionally do not offer reading list/s, but do offer sample texts to help guide and inform CCSS establish “staircase” of increasing complexity to prepare students for college and career-level reading CCSS mandate certain critical types of content for all students including classic myths, foundational U.S. documents, seminal works of American literature, Shakespeare Students expected to read diverse array of classic and contemporary literature along with challenging informational texts in a range of subject areas 38 5/4/2015District and School Transformation

39 Science Essential Standards for K-12 5/4/2015District and School Transformation39

40 5/4/2015 District and School Transformation 40 Science NC Science Essential Standards Vertical Progression PSc Illustrate the wave interactions of reflection, refraction, diffraction, and interference. Phy Analyze wave behaviors in terms of transmission, reflection, refraction and interference. 4.P.3.2 Recognize that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels from one medium to another, and that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed. 6.P.1.2 Explain the relationship among visible light, the electromagnetic spectrum, and sight. 6.P.3.2 Explain the effects of electromagnetic waves on various materials to include absorption, scattering, and change in temperature.

41 Regional Wikispaces Below are links to each regional resource page created by the NCDPI RttT PD Leads designed to share information and support the work of the district/charter PD teams. This information is shared and compiled as a result of the training sessions, individual virtual conferences, district/charter team meetings, and more that are held in each region. Please take advantage of these resources and feel free to contact the RttT PD Leads for additional information. 5/4/2015District and School Transformation41

43 Important to Know and Do… Pay attention to new objectives, pacing, unpacking documents, Cross-walks, and learning progressions. Limit following current textbooks and workbooks exclusively. Select and sort current materials to help pupils actively “dig” deeper in content. Identify “gaps” and supplement by grade- level/subject kits, materials, etc. Utilize DPI, district, and standard Smarter Balanced Common Core materials. Remember: Every teacher teaches READING and LITERACY. 5/4/2015District and School Transformation43

44 Common Core and Essential Standards Instructional Resources Common Core State Standards: Overview of the standards, which states have adopted, etc. For grade-level materials: Common Core Resources listed and annotated: Common Core: Contains units already written for K-12 ELA. Cost: $20 each to access K-5, 6-8, ELA Live Binders: Comprehensive overview of the ELA standards, produced by NCDPI. 5/4/2015District and School Transformation44

45 Instructional Materials Cont’d: Science ESSENTIAL STANDARDS SUPPORT TOOLS include “Crosswalks” and Unpacked Content SCIENCE SHARP SCHOOL site - NC DPI WIKI for Collaborative Workspaces- 5/4/2015District and School Transformation45
