1 MPS Elementary ELA & Math Targeted Transition to the 2010 AZ Standards (Common Core) Judy Larkins & Sheri Tarter, March 2012

2 MPS Targeted Transition What is the MPS Transition Plan to the 2010 AZ ELA & Math Standards (Common Core)? Which grade levels will transition and what is the timeline for transition in each grade level? What support will teachers receive from MPS? What tasks will teachers need to do? Where can I find more information?

4 Transition What support will teachers receive from MPS? For the school year, grades 1 and 2 will receive newly aligned curriculum documents and math benchmark assessments. For the school year, grades 3-6 will receive Targeted Implementation documents that identify the 2004 ELA/2008 Math and the 2010 standards to be taught during the year. Professional development courses will continue to be offered addressing the content and rigor of the 2010 Standards.

5 Math Targeted Transition What is the content and format of the Math Targeted Implementation documents in grades 3-6? The 2008 performance objectives and 2010 standards have been selected to teach the necessary skills for each student to be successful on the AIMS assessment and to introduce the rigor in some concepts of the 2010 Standards. The format is similar to the current curriculum in that it lists the Standards, Mathematical Practices, Explanations and Examples, and MPS Resources for each performance objective/standard listed.

6 Math Targeted Transition What tasks will teachers need to do? Work collaboratively to analyze the 2010 Math Standards to uncover the skills and level of thinking in each standard. Plan the teaching of the Targeted Implementation performance objectives/standards. Integrate the Mathematical Practices in all math lessons. Continue to use the elementary math benchmarks to assess proficiency on the 2008 Math Standards. Continue to create common formative assessments to check for understanding on the 2008 and 2010 Math Standards contained in the Targeted Implementation documents.

7 ELA Targeted Transition What is the content and format of the ELA Targeted Implementation documents in grades 3-6? The 2004 performance objectives and 2010 standards have been selected to teach the necessary skills for each student to be successful on the AIMS assessment and to introduce the rigor in some concepts of the 2010 Standards. The format includes the 2010 Standards and the 2004 Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening, and Viewing & Presenting performance objectives. The six instructional shifts in ELA/Literacy are described.

8 ELA Targeted Transition What tasks will teachers need to do? Work collaboratively to analyze the 2010 ELA Standards to uncover the skills and level of thinking in each standard. Plan the teaching of the Targeted Implementation performance objectives/standards. Continue to use the MesaREADS framework for reading instruction. Continue to create common formative assessments to check for understanding on the 2004 and 2010 ELA Standards contained in the Targeted Implementation documents.
