Text features help the writer chunk and organize the information so readers can deconstruct the text. Understanding genre characteristics works as an advance organizer for reading comprehension. When readers know what to expect from text, they can more easily make sense of what they read. Authors choices of structures, features, etc. control the message and the readers perceptions. Identify genre Identify text type: literary vs. informative/technical Identify text features Identify text structures Identify texts purpose and message Analyze/make connections between text features/sections and the texts purpose/ message Analyze/make connections between authors choice of text structure and the texts purpose/message Make predictions about text based on text features and text structures Explain how structure and/or features enhance texts purpose/message Identify how the message/purpose would be different if different features/structures were used.

60 Alignment Continuum Decide with your partner how you would score this districts curriculum segment on text features and text structures to the CCSS Standard 5 at the 4 th grade level. Mark your decision in the appropriate box on the continuum. (Question 1)

61 Elementary/Secondary Expert Groups In your groups, you will be examining how a districts curriculum might or might not be aligned with the CCSS. Elementary CCSS Standard 5, districts 3 rd grade curriculum Secondary CCSS Standard 9, districts 10 th grade curriculum or CCSS Standard 1, districts 8 th grade curriculum

62 Step 1: Decode CCSS Anchor and GLE What is the content requirement (focus of the standard-inferencing, comparing and contrast, point of view, etc? What is the cognitive demand at that grade level (note verb used)?

63 Step 2: Compare the DE and CCSS standards and GLES Is there a content match? If so, how close is it? What differences are there? How important are those differences? Is there a cognitive level match? What differences are there and how important are those differences?

64 Step 3: Compare the districts recommendations with the CCSS Is there a content match? If so, how close is it? What differences are there? How important are those differences? Is there a cognitive level match? What differences are there and how important are those differences?

65 Alignment Continuum Decide with your group how you would score this districts curriculum segment in relation to its alignment with CCSS. Mark your decision in the appropriate box on the continuum. (Question 2)

66 Alignment with CCSS This is the process you would use to determine your districts curriculum alignment with CCSS

67 NAEP Framework for Reading GRADELiteraryInformative 450% 845%55% 1230%70% The Standards aim to align instruction with this framework so that many more students than at present can meet the requirements of college and career readiness. In K-5, the Standards follow NAEP's lead in balancing the reading of literature with the reading of informational texts, including texts in history/ social studies, science, and technical subjects. In accord with NAEP's growing emphasis on informational texts in the higher grades, the Standards demand that a significant amount of reading of informational texts take place in and outside the ELA classroom. Fulfilling the Standards for 6-12 ELA requires much greater attention to …informational text…

70 Range of Text Types for K–5 Stories: Includes childrens adventure, stories, folktales, legends, fables, fantasy, realistic fiction, and myth Dramas: Includes staged dialogue and brief familiar scenes Poetry: Includes nursery rhymes and the subgenres of the narrative poem, limerick, and free verse poem Literary Nonfiction and Historical, Scientific, and Technical Texts: Includes biographies and autobiographies; books about history, social studies, science, and the arts; technical texts, including directions, forms, and information displayed

71 Work with a partner How aligned are the local districts text/passages with the requirements of this CCSS standard?

72 Questions: Do the range of genre match recommendations? Do the percentages of fiction and nonfiction match? Is the complexity of the readings similar to the complexity of the CCSS exemplars? In other words, would reading these works prepare students for reading the CCSS exemplars?

73 Alignment Continuum Decide with your group how you would score this districts texts/passages/book lists with the requirements of the CCSS. Mark your decision in the appropriate box on the continuum. (Question 5)

74 Alignment checks….. Look for matches between your curriculum and both Common Core and DE standards. Look for a match in both CONTENT and COGNITIVE demand. If your curriculum appears to be misaligned with Common Core, check grade levels before and after – some vertical tweaking may be indicated. Use Common Core Text Complexity and recommended text types/exemplar guidelines to evaluate the appropriateness of your reading selections.

75 Alignment Continuum Now predict how well aligned your curriculum and text/passages/book lists might be with the CCSS. Mark your decision in the appropriate box on the continuum. (Question 3 and 4)

76 Pass the Problem Each table or group gets a different problem, written across the TOP of the paper and they must brainstorm (collectively, as a group) a possible solution. They get 2 minutes to find a solution. They write their solution at the BOTTOM of the paper and then fold their paper (from the bottom) so that the next group gets their problem but cannot see the proposed solution(s). The second group writes their solution (without seeing the previous groups solution) on the exposed flap; after 2 minutes they fold again and pass to next table. Final group (usually 4 rounds is about enough) synthesizes all solutions into one and reports out.
