1 David Goldberg, CEO (303) Core Skills Mastery CCS M

2 Education and work success College and work skills Learning skills (by reading) Persistence Carefulness Confidence Self-reliance Motivation Problem-solving & thinking skills Core math and literacy skills CSM

3 Core Skills Mastery -- CSM Web-based course Adaptive learning / computer guided Online or classroom Will work with students as low as 3 rd grade math / 6 th grade reading Free for colleges, schools, non-profits Including teacher support & professional development Certificate available for students who complete CSM

4 CSM CURRICULUM

5 CSM curriculum has two parts Core Instruction Integrated math, literacy & problem-solving hours Optional: Challenge Problems Advanced problem-solving & thinking skills 10’s of hours

6 Solve the following problems in your head. Do not use a calculator, and only use paper if absolutely necessary. 10, Core – deep understanding

7 Core – integrated & complex contexts

8 Women who are pregnant Core – information extraction

9 Core – problem-solving revenue ($) rent & labor ($) cost shampoo & scissors ($) charge per dog groomed ($/dog) dogs groomed (dogs) expenses ($)

10 CSM Challenge Problems Increasingly challenging real-world problems Solving novel problems / analyzing new contexts hints, no instruction Challenge Problem time CSM Core Instruction advanced college level problem-solving & thinking skills reporter student lawyer

12 CSM curriculum characteristics Core Instruction Integrated math, literacy & problem-solving hours Optional: Challenge Problems Advanced problem-solving & thinking skills 10’s of hours All workforce contextualized Goals Decision-making, supervisor-level skills College completion skills

13 Focus of CSM instruction Teaching students skills Teaching students how to learn skills on their own …through reading

14 CSM Instruction 8460

15 Meta-cognition  thinking about learning

16 Teach concepts and context…

17 … as well as “just the facts” Making decisions what to read forces meta-cognition Making decisions what to read forces meta-cognition

18 CSM requires a high level of mastery In most educational technology, mastery is: a 1 in 5 chance of guessing it right a 60% passing grade a checkmark on the day the student first learns it On the job, the only acceptable grade is “A” Want students to learn about A-level work How you do it That you can do it How good it feels

19 Accuracy, carefulness and mastery Must get all right in a single try …2 times

20 Ensure durable mastery Conventional: teach once, test many times CSM: More instruction if needed More instruction if needed Learned initially Remembered

23 Teachers and CSM Teacher as strategic interventionist / mentor skill-specific / cognitive independent learning / learning strategies affect, behavior, habits of mind (persistence, carefulness, confidence, self-reliance, motivation, etc.)

24

25 CSM promotes intrinsic motivation Learn skills largely on your own (autonomy) Maintain at edge of knowledge (mastery) All skills are work contextualized (purpose) Protect students from learned helplessness

26 Professional development embedded while you work with students check-in before you start CSM

27 Examples of college CSM use Adult ed for college transition or GED Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology MAT2 – Henry Ford CC for apprenticeships Oregon Career Pathways Research: CCRC / Heldrich

28 STEPPING BACK

29 College and career readiness GED Common Core ACCUPLACER WorkKeys COMPASS ACT SAT Math and literacy standards Different test-prep for every standard

30 College and career readiness Math and literacy for decision-making Problem-solving and thinking skills Independent learning Habits of mind (persistence, self-reliance, carefulness, etc.) CSM Capable, confident, adaptable supervisor-level decision-maker Capable, confident, adaptable student

31 Roseburg, OR / Umpqua CC 10 th grade preparation for dual-college (Alternative placement to ACCUPLACER/COMPASS) College-transition class for adult education At WDC for transition into various programs Development education class for college Credit-bearing academic success class Co-requisite class for post-secondary CTE programs Professional services for local businesses Businesses give interview to CSM certificate holders This doesn’t transform the community

32 Community uplift Community uplift occurs when everyone uses CSM Virtuous cycle of supply and demand Programs that use CSM instruction (supply) Programs that honor CSM certificate (demand) Best if: Every program uses CSM for its own purposes Without a heavy hand – self-organizing

33 CSM for collective impact Creating the SupplyCreating the Demand Secondary  As part of an advanced math elective, college-prep class, or other course  As an alternative to placement exams for dual- college enrollment or CTE programs Adult/ Workforce  As a CSM course (can be combined with GED or college transition classes)  As a relevant credential for job placement or workforce programs Post- secondary  CSM Certificate earned as part of developmental education, a co- requisite foundational skills course, or an academic success class  As an alternative to placement exams (e.g. bypassing the ACCUPLACER or COMPASS tests)  As a requirement for apprenticeships  As a graduation requirement  As a requirement for scholarship programs Business  CSM Certificate earned through internal training courses for new hires, for promotion, or for general skills upgrades  Guaranteeing interviews to CSM Certificate holders who are otherwise nominally qualified  As a requirement for promotion  Making college tuition reimbursement contingent on CSM Certificate

34 Hasn’t this been tried before? Previous attemptsCSM Mainly math and literacyMath, literacy, problem-solving, learning, habits of mind, etc. Little instruction; old pedagogyFree, web-based with next- generation technology Target low-skill, entry-levelDecision-making, supervisor level skills Of little interest to academic institutions Workforce standard of interest to academic institutions, from secondary to college

35 Practically speaking, how do you do collective impact? Your own program Other program in your institution Other community organizations Local business

36 Use CSM however it works for you Use CSM for your own program Use CSM for community uplift through collective impact
