2 Establishing the Need A study that is based on 2010 Labor Department data, says the problem is the stock of college graduates in the workforce (41.7 million) in 2010 was larger than the number of jobs requiring a college degree (28.6 million). A study that is based on 2010 Labor Department data, says the problem is the stock of college graduates in the workforce (41.7 million) in 2010 was larger than the number of jobs requiring a college degree (28.6 million). This helps explain why 15% of taxi drivers in 2010 had bachelor's degrees vs. 1% in Among retail sales clerks, 25% had a bachelor's degree in Less than 5% did in This helps explain why 15% of taxi drivers in 2010 had bachelor's degrees vs. 1% in Among retail sales clerks, 25% had a bachelor's degree in Less than 5% did in 1970.

4 “Right now you can look around the world and you can see a lot of high-tech, high- value high-productivity jobs that we are not doing in this country, in part because our country does not have the requisite skills,” “Right now you can look around the world and you can see a lot of high-tech, high- value high-productivity jobs that we are not doing in this country, in part because our country does not have the requisite skills,” Joe Minarik, of the Washington-based Committee for Economic Development.

5 Common Core Standards Well known; are adopted by the State of Illinois for educational standards. Well known; are adopted by the State of Illinois for educational standards. The Standards for CTE are a combination of Reading, Writing, and Mathematical standards intertwined at every grade level. The Standards for CTE are a combination of Reading, Writing, and Mathematical standards intertwined at every grade level. It is the responsibility of CTE to teach these standards in way that be tied to occupational relevance.

6 New Direction for WHS CTE Vocational education is part of a total program of academic and technical studies that prepares students for continued learning in work or educational settings. Vocational education is part of a total program of academic and technical studies that prepares students for continued learning in work or educational settings. Classrooms, laboratories, business and industry, the home, and the community are all locations for instruction. Classrooms, laboratories, business and industry, the home, and the community are all locations for instruction.

7 Implementation of the Standards The CTE department agreed to develop their lessons in a way which would achieve these goals. The CTE department agreed to develop their lessons in a way which would achieve these goals. CTE teachers must give relevant experiences that will implement the Common Core Standards. CTE teachers must give relevant experiences that will implement the Common Core Standards. Each program must “keep true” to the “Hands On” approach to each occupational area. Each program must “keep true” to the “Hands On” approach to each occupational area.

8 WHS Goals for Occupational Courses: Teach students a technical skill which can be assessed. Teach students a technical skill which can be assessed. Give students a chance to research and read information on possible solutions. Give students a chance to research and read information on possible solutions. Be assessed on the development of the skill. (rubric) Be assessed on the development of the skill. (rubric) An opportunity to reflect on the project; on what the student learned, where information was acquired, and how this skill will help the student.

Our students must be able to work in our Occupational Classes at the DOK Level 3 and Level 4 quadrants. Our students must be able to work in our Occupational Classes at the DOK Level 3 and Level 4 quadrants.

9 Depth Of Knowledge Measures the degree to which the knowledge elicited from students on assessments is as complex as what students are expected to know and do as stated in the state standards (Common Core)

10 Where Did DOK Come from? Developed by Dr. Norman Webb, senior research scientist at the National Institute for Science Education. Several other states (at least 20) use DOK to evaluate the rigor of their state assessments.

11 How does DOK work? Depth of Knowledge is broken into 4 levels. Level One is the most basic level, essentially the “definition” stage. As the levels increase, students must demonstrate increasingly complex mental strategies. Higher levels of DOK require that students solve problems in new and creative ways, and allow for multiple solutions to solve those problems.

12 DOK is similar to Bloom’s Taxonomy. The next slide is a rough comparison of the levels of DOK and Bloom’s Taxonomy. DOK Compared to Bloom’s

13 Levels of DOK LEVEL ONE - RECALL LEVEL ONE - RECALL Recall of a fact, information, or procedure Recall of a fact, information, or procedure LEVEL TWO – SKILL/CONCEPT LEVEL TWO – SKILL/CONCEPT Use information or conceptual knowledge Use information or conceptual knowledge LEVEL THREE – STRATEGIC THINKING LEVEL THREE – STRATEGIC THINKING Reasoning, developing a plan Reasoning, developing a plan LEVEL FOUR – EXTENDED THINKING LEVEL FOUR – EXTENDED THINKING Requires an investigation, collection of data and analysis of results Requires an investigation, collection of data and analysis of results

14 SYNTHESIS AND EVALUATION “Putting together elements & parts to form a whole, then making value judgments about the method.” EXTENDED THINKING EXTENDED THINKING Requires an investigation; time to think and process multiple conditions of the problem or task. BLOOM’S TAXONOMYWEBB’S DOK KNOWLEDGE “The recall of specifics and universals, involving little more than bringing to mind the appropriate material ” “The recall of specifics and universals, involving little more than bringing to mind the appropriate material ” COMPREHENSION “Ability to process knowledge on a low level such that the knowledge can be reproduced or communicated without a verbatim repetition.” APPLICATION “The use of abstractions in concrete situations.” ANALYSIS “The breakdown of a situation into its component parts.” RECALL Recall of a fact, information, or procedure (e.g., What are 3 critical skill cues for the overhand throw?) SKILL/CONCEPT Use of information, conceptual knowledge, procedures, two or more steps, etc. STRATEGIC THINKING Requires reasoning, developing a plan or sequence of steps; has some complexity; more than one possible answer Wyoming School Health and Physical Education Network (2001).

15 McHenry County College (MCC) & District 200 Partnership Started by a “Liaison Position” between MCC and D 200 Started by a “Liaison Position” between MCC and D 200 D200 CTE and MCC reaching out for the betterment of vocational programs. D200 CTE and MCC reaching out for the betterment of vocational programs. This partnership expanded as a result of curriculum development from a Federal Government Grant from the US Department of labor This partnership expanded as a result of curriculum development from a Federal Government Grant from the US Department of labor State Grant efforts to identify the “Path for Student Success” State Grant efforts to identify the “Path for Student Success”

16 How Dual Credit Got Started D200 was offering articulated credit D200 was offering articulated credit Articulated Credit: Students take the classes in high school that the community college has identified as meeting their course requirements, pass with a C or above, enroll in community college, go back to the high school to fill out the paperwork, and receive credit. Articulated Credit: Students take the classes in high school that the community college has identified as meeting their course requirements, pass with a C or above, enroll in community college, go back to the high school to fill out the paperwork, and receive credit. In order to meet the enrollment demands at the Community College, dual credit opportunities were opened up. In order to meet the enrollment demands at the Community College, dual credit opportunities were opened up.

17 What is Dual Credit? Dual Credit Dual Credit Students take the college course work in their high school, which is taught by a teacher that meets the minimum requirements for employment at the community college, and receive both high school and college credit.
