Next Steps for Teaching and Learning 3 Module D: Next Steps for Teaching and Learning Essential Question: How will the DE ELA Prioritized Curriculum and the ELA Common Core State Standards impact my next steps in planning for instruction?
ELA Common Core State Standards Analysis 4 100% It doesnt get any better than that!
5 Reading Standards for Literature Standard 2 Standard 3 Standard 4 Reading Standards for Informational text Standard 2 Standard 3 Foundational Skills Standard 2 Standard 1 Writing Standards [Informative, Persuasive/Argumentative, Narrative] Standard 1 Standard 3 Standards for Speaking and Listening Standard 1 Language Standards Standard 1 Standard 2 CCSS Anchor Standards and Delaware Standards
6 CC.2.R.L.3 Key Ideas and Details: Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges.
How do we read the CCSS? CC.2.R.L.3 Key Ideas and Details: Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges. DE.2.4 (Lit).4.a.1: Read stories and relate characters experiences to shape own decisions by asking questions: * I felt like that character when I…* If that happened to me, I would…* I can relate to that character because one time… 7 CC=Common Core 2= Grade R= Reading L=Literary 3=3 rd bullet DE=Delaware 2= Grade 4.4a=Standard and Performance Indicator Lit=Literary 1=1 st bullet
How do the two standards align? CC.2.R.L.3 Key Ideas and Details: Describe how characters in a story respond to major events and challenges DE.2.2(Rea).4bL.2 Identify other characters in a story or in a poem DE.2.2(Rea).4d.1 Retell a story, identifying the main characters and major events in a literary text DE.2.2(Rea).4g. Make connections between ideas/ characters in stories (e.g., what story that we have read does this remind me of?) DE.2.2(Rea).4g.2 List similarities and differences between ideas/characters in text(s) DE.2.4(Lit).4a.1 Read stories and relate characters' experiences to shape own decisions by asking questions: * I felt like that character when I.... * If that happened to me, I would.... * I can relate to that character because one time.... DE.2.4(Lit).3a.2 Acknowledge the experiences and feelings of fictional characters based on age, gender, nationalities, races, cultures, and/or disabilities DE.2.2(Rea).6a.2 Explain personal connections to the topics, events, characters, and actions in texts 8
Questions we can answer from the Common Core Comparison Tool… Which of the concepts and skills required in the Common Core are included in our states standards? How strong is the comparison between these two sets of standards? How similar are the Common Core and the state standards with respect to the grade levels at which concepts and skills are taught? At what grade levels are there differences where our state expectations address concepts and skills earlier or later than the Common Core? 9
How similar are the Common Core and the state standards with respect to the expectations that are included in specific strands (reading, writing, language, listening, speaking)? In what domains do we find the greatest differences? 10
Which of the concepts and skills required in the Common Core are not included in our states standards? To what degree do these Common Core expectations represent concepts and skills that are significantly different than what is currently included in our state standards? 11
And most importantly… Which of these excluded state expectations address essential content that is unique to our state and that our state would consider adding (up to 15%) to the ELA Common Core State Standard adoption? 12
