I can analyze the progression of the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. Learning Target
Grade Band Shuffle Well take a close look at how one standard scaffolds from kindergarten – grade 12.
Example: W.CCR.6: Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others. W.K.6 With guidance and support from adults, explore a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including collaboration with peers. W.2.6 With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. W.4.6 With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of one page in a single sitting. W.6.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single sitting. W.8.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and present the relationships between information and ideas efficiently as well as to interact and collaborate with others. W.9-10.6 Use technology, including the internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products, taking advantage of technologys capacity to link to other information and to display information flexibly and dynamically. W.11-12.6Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products in response to ongoing feedback, including new arguments or information. With no support
Pop and Share Write 1 thing you noticed about the progression of standards. Was your answer different from the actual progression? What implications does the progression of the standard have for instruction?
LEARNING CHECK: I can analyze the progression of the Kentucky Core Academic Standards.
CHETL Break (This handout is in your folder) Lets Talk CHETL Take 2 minutes to talk with your group to identify aspects of the activities and learning up to this point that align with CHETL Section 3: Instructional Rigor and Student Engagement.
I can explain the importance of using student-friendly learning targets in my classroom. Learning Target
Knowing Your Learning Target Code the text as you read (*) Something that really stands out as important to you (+) Something that you already know or are doing (?) Something that you have a question about
LEARNING CHECK: I can explain the importance of using student-friendly learning targets in my classroom.
Complete your anticipation guide/exit slip. Consider the following questions for reflection: Implications for classroom practice? Implications for teachers and building leadership?
Welcome to Day 2 of our Journey to the Center of the Kentucky Core Academic Standards
Day 2 Agenda Norms Charting Our Course (Thought Clouds) Share Todays Learning Targets 4 Types of Learning Targets CHETL Breaks Moving to Student-Friendly Language JCPS Curriculum Maps/Unit Planning Grade Level Planning Time School Team Planning Time
Learning Targets for Day 2 (the intended learning) I can classify the 4 types of learning targets. I can develop student-friendly learning targets from the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. I can utilize the curriculum maps to focus and individualize my instruction. I can use the Kentucky Core Academic Standards and curriculum maps to begin planning an instructional unit.
Target Sort Work with a partner to organize the sample targets and key verbs into the four categories of learning targets, knowledge, reasoning, skill/performance, or product. Use the explanations on the handouts to help you decide which targets belong to each category. Check your answers with the answer key provided by the facilitator. Discuss your answers with the people at your table.
Knowledge Targets Some knowledge/facts/concepts to be learned outright; some to be retrieved using reference materials Examples: Identify metaphors and similes Describe the function of a cell membrane List the multiples of 3 Explain the effects of an acid on a base
Reasoning Targets Thinking proficienciesusing knowledge to solve a problem, make a decision, plan, etc. Examples: Use statistical methods to describe, analyze, evaluate, and make decisions. Make a prediction based on evidence Examine data/results and propose a meaningful interpretation Distinguish between historical fact and opinion
Performance/Skill Targets Behavioral demonstrations; where the doing is what is important; using knowledge and reasoning to perform skillfully Examples Measure mass in metric and SI units Use simple equipment and tools to gather data Read aloud with fluency and expression Participates in civic discussions with the aim of solving current problems Dribbles to keep the ball away from an opponent
Product Targets Where the characteristics of the final product are important; using knowledge, reasoning, and skills to produce a final product Examples: Produce an argument to support claims Write an informative/explanatory text Write a narrative to develop real or imagined experiences Produce a writing piece that is clear and coherent
YOUR TURN Show what you know……. Work independently to identify what kind of learning target each is by marking the appropriate box, K,R, S, or P. (S is for Performance Skill) If you arent sure of the target type, mark your guess and then mark the (?) box. The facilitator will give you an answer key and the answers will be discussed with the group. Quick Learning Check: I can classify the 4 types of learning targets.
Learning Target (the intended learning) I can develop student- friendly learning targets from the Kentucky Core Academic Standards.
Learning to Drive Standard: Drive a car with skill. What knowledge will students need to demonstrate the intended learning? What patterns of reasoning will students need to master? What skills are required? What final product will be produced?
Moving from Teacher Language Student-Friendly Language Look at the template that helps break teacher- friendly targets into student-friendly targets. Kids can hit any target that stands still. Stiggins
Now its your turn: Student-Friendly Targets and Gallery Walk With your group (3-4), create student-friendly targets for RL.7.3 Post them on chart paper Post chart paper on the wall With your group, travel from chart to chart and provide feedback or make comments on the other charts Return to your chart paper and discuss the comments and feedback.
Your Turn Again……… Student-Friendly Targets and Gallery Walk With your group (3-4), create student-friendly targets for W.7.5 Post them on chart paper Post chart paper on the wall With your group, travel from chart to chart and provide feedback or make comments on the other charts Return to your chart paper and discuss the comments and feedback.

Planning a Trip Choose an interesting region or area to visit. Plan with your destination in mind. Plan activities that you want to do when you reach your objective Work out a time frame for your trip. Method of Travel Gather the personal belongings you already have and determine if you will need additional items. Think about all the stops you will make along the way. Prepare for breakdowns and detours..
Planning a Standards-Based Unit Plan with the end in mind (Summative Assessments). Decide on a time frame. Methods of instruction. Gather resources. Prepare formative assessments. Assessments you can do along the way. Prepare to re-teach.
Navigate the Route Big Idea KCAS Standards Standards-Based Outcomes Pre-Assessments, Formative (for learning) and Summative (of learning) Assessments Student-Friendly Learning Targets Background Knowledge (Gaps) Instructional Strategies Texts and Instructional Resources Supplemental Materials Routines and Procedures Guiding Questions focused on standards Communication
Revisiting our Learning Targets I can develop student-friendly learning targets from the Kentucky Core Academic Standards. I can utilize the curriculum maps to focus and individualize my instruction for each six weeks. I can use the Kentucky Core Academic Standards and curriculum maps to begin to planning an instructional unit. Rate yourself!
Cohorts Next Steps….. Share cohort information with the principal. Implement ideas and strategies within your own classroom centered around KCAS. Collaborate with resource teacher(s). Attend four (4) 3-hour and one (1) full day of professional development during the work year. Present KCAS professional development during faculty meetings, Gold days, and/or embedded PDs as requested and scheduled by the principal. Participate in developing video clips that illustrate those strategies Become a collaboration classroom for others to visit. Cohort Teacher Expectations:
School Team Planning Complete the School Pre-planning Sheet independently and discuss your answers with your group. Work with your group to complete the School Team Planning Sheet. Each group should complete 2 copies of School Team Planning Sheet, one for us to collect and one for the group to share with their principal.
Homework…………… Before out next meeting, Please read the following articles about balanced assessment: 1.What a difference a word makes 2. Assessment Through the Students Eyes
