18 ES Course iii. Writing the Essential Standards The Essential Standard is the organizing unit. Essential Standard

19 Revised Blooms Taxonomy is a taxonomy of both cognitive process and knowledge. iii. Writing the Essential Standards Revised Blooms Taxonomy

20 The student will interpret data from statistical investigations presented in tables and bar graphs. Subject VerbObject The Student Cognitive Process Knowledge Essential Standards take the following form... Example iii. Writing the Essential Standards Revised Blooms Taxonomy

21 Factual Conceptual Procedural Meta-Cognitive Remember Understand Apply Analyze Evaluate Create The Cognitive Process Dimension The Knowledge Dimension iii. Writing the Essential Standards Revised Blooms Taxonomy

22 Cognitive Process The Cognitive Processes (or verbs) in the RBT have very specific meanings. Implementing requires adjusting a process to a new situation Explaining requires constructing a cause-and-effect model of a system (e.g. explain the recent downturn in the global economy) Inferring requires drawing a logical conclusion from presented information (e.g. in learning a foreign language, infer grammatical principles from examples) For Example: iii. Writing the Essential Standards Revised Blooms Taxonomy

23 iii. Writing the Essential Standards The RBT helps in achieving key goals: Depth Focus One Taxonomy Precise Language for PD Revised Blooms Taxonomy

24 Clarifying Objectives iii. Writing the Essential Standards Clarifying Objectives Essential Standard Understand the value of whole numbers and decimal representations from 0.01 to 100, N.3 Example Represent whole numbers and decimals using models, words and numbers (symbolic). Compare sets of two to six numbers, arranging them from least to greatest or greatest to least. Illustrate the place value structure of decimals and whole numbers when multiplying and dividing by 10.

29 New and Better Specifics iii. Writing the Essential Standards O Occupational Course of Study O Mathematics K-12 O Information and Technology Skills O English II Development of themes, concepts and skills over time Key organizing ideas at each grade level Math A and BC K-12 Information Skills and K-12 Computer Skill combined Narrowed focus on a very limited number of key concepts Algebra I course added Creation of a new Financial Management course Focused and more concise Alignment with 21st century content and skills

30 Course Support resources specific to course or subject Support resources aligned to specific Essential Standards Whats New and Why is it better for students? Crosswalk between old standards and new standards Mastery Tracking Sheets Guides for using textbooks and resources with ES Essential Standards Prototypical Assessments Classroom Prototypical Assessments EOC-EOG Benchmark/ Interim Assessment Tool Applying Revised Blooms Taxonomy Unit Plans Supporting and Instructional Objectives (unpacking) Resource Lists Released Forms of EOC/EOGs Vertical Alignment Tools and Pre-requisite Skills General Teaching Tools Revised Blooms Taxonomy PD 21 st Century Skills Formative Assessment Modules Uniform tools for all subject areas Extended Content Standards Instructional Support Toolkit {Draft} iii. Writing the Essential Standards

31 From Oct 08… ACRE Principles iv. Feedback and trends Transparency Alignment Measuring Our Success Stakeholder Involvement

32 Three primary means for involvement… Stakeholder Involvement iv. Feedback and trends Individual Public Comment Writing Teams LEA Collaborative Feedback Structured Business Feedback

33 Totals: From the individual/business survey On writing/review teams Collaborative LEA Feedback ~7500 ~12,112 stakeholders iv. Feedback and trends Stakeholder Involvement

34 All feedback was read and considered. Much of it improved the current drafts. Key Discussion Topics from Feedback iv. Feedback and trends

35 Too much rigor (particularly in the OCS) Scope of science Specificity of standards Understanding of Revised Blooms Taxonomy Teacher capacity with content changes Key Discussion Topics from Feedback iv. Feedback and trends

36 $ Budget Implications

37 What additional information do you need to make a confident vote on these draft standards? Details and trends from field feedback New, Better and Different statements for subjects National and International filters matrices Drafted assessment prototypes

38 North Carolinas Mandates Essential Narrow Deep Rigorous + Relevant Readiness for College and Career Race to the Top Essential Fewer, Higher, Clearer Focused Enduring Measurable Clear and Concise Prioritized and Focused Rigorous Readiness for College and Career The common core and the Draft Essential Standards use the same adjectives v. Next generation Next generation and the Race to the Top

39 The work of the Blue Ribbon Commission, Framework for Change and ACRE is aligned to the RTTT assurances. Improved Data Systems Support for Low-performing Schools Teacher Effectiveness Standards and Assessments RTTT Assurances Summative Essential Standards Benchmark Formative Assessment Race to the Top Assurances v. Next generation

40 Summative (Statewide) Essential Standards Benchmark (Classroom, School, District) Formative Assessment (Classroom) Will inform and reflect the common core work Apply for $350 million assessment grant. From Smart Options: Develop local data systems with formative, interim, and benchmark assessment data.... GrowthAchievement (EOCs and EOGs) K-12 ACRE and The Race to the Top v. Next generation
