15 HCPS III Implementation Process Model: Integrating SS/LA 1. Identify relevant benchmarks. 2. Determine acceptable evidence and criteria. 3. Determine learning experiences that will enable students to learn what they need to know and to do. 4. Teach and collect evidence of student learning. 5. Assess student work to inform instruction or use data to provide feedback. 6. Evaluate student work and make judgment on learning results and communicate findings. The HCPS III Implementation Process Model is used by teachers to plan and implement standards-based curriculum, assessment, and instruction.

16 (Take out the Deconstructing the BenchmarksHCPS III worksheet) STEP1. Identify relevant benchmarks Start with the Benchmark Maps -examine shared content/concepts/skills Which are natural bed-fellows? -easily lend themselves to a shared task SS· Describe the physical and human characteristics that make different regions unique LA Use specific verbs and adverbs to describe people, places, things, or events.

17 STEP 1. (cont.) Identify relevant benchmarks Start with the Benchmark Maps -examine shared content/concepts/skills Which are natural bed-fellows? -easily lend themselves to a shared task Revolutionary War Describe the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures · Explain how the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people LA 5.1.2: Use a variety of grade- appropriate print and online resources to research a topic 5.4.6: Write bibliographical entries for periodicals 5.6.2: Give informal reports or presentations to inform 5.6.6: Use gestures, facial expressions, eye contact to enhance the spoken word.

18 Deconstructing the benchmarks Content -the stuff you need to learn Literary elements (characters, setting, plot,) Synonyms Antonyms Idioms Imagery people Events Places Ideas Skills -the thing you do: Organize information Describe Explain Summarize Edit Locate information

19 Deconstructing the benchmarks Content John Adams Ben Franklin Thomas Paine King George III Patrick Henry Thomas Jefferson Bunker Hill (Breeds Hill) Lexington and Concord Saratoga Boston Massacre Boston Tea Party Stamp Act Alliances (French, Native Americans) Movement of people e.g. gender-(men off to war), political (loyalists to England and other safe-havens, leadership to Europe to gather support, etc.) Skills Research -framing and answering questions -note-taking (including essential vs. incidental) -organizing the information -finding appropriate resources (e.g., websites, periodicals, human, etc.) -citing sources -oral communication skills e.g. eye contact, facial expressions, and gestures.

20 STEP 2. Determine acceptable evidence and criteria A. What task can be created that will allow students to demonstrate proficiency of ALL identified benchmarks? Revolutionary War Describe the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures Explain how the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people LA 5.1.2: Use a variety of grade- appropriate print and online resources to research a topic 5.4.6: Write bibliographical entries for periodicals 5.6.2: Give informal reports or presentations to inform

21 STEP 2. Determine acceptable evidence and criteria Task: We have been talking about the ideas of conflict. As you know, war is a conflict between nations and/or peoples. The revolutionary war was such a conflict. This war has special meaning for all Americans because it was the outcome of this war was the birth of a new nationthe United States. As a member of your CL group, you will use a variety of print and on- line resources to research the major events of the war, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures. You will then describe these findings to the class in an oral presentation. Though you may divide up the presentation, each is responsible to hand in an individual research report on the major events (including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures) and how this war caused the movement of people. You must be sure to write the bibliographical entries for your sources.

22 STEP 2. Determine acceptable evidence and criteria AdvancedProficientPartially Proficient Novice Thoroughly research and analyze the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures and explain, with clear and precise detail, how the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people Describe the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures and explain, with detail, how the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people Name the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures and give examples of how the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people Recognize some of the major events of the Revolutionary War, including key battles, key alliances, and the roles played by key figures and recognize that the Revolutionary War caused the movement of people

Write bibliography entries for your resources with most elements missing or many errors in style. Give ineffective oral presentation that do not inform classmates about the Revolutionary War.

24 STEP 3. Determine the learning experiences that will enable students to learn what they need to know and to do Build Background Knowledge-KWL, Anticipation Guide etc. Mini lesson on framing and answering questions through historical research Mini lesson on researching both print and on-line resources Reading comprehension lessons including think alouds on determining importance Mini lesson on how to correctly write a bibliographic entry Mini lesson on report-writing skills e.g., organizing ideas, checking facts, identifying the relevant details, using resources correctly (no copying!) Mini lesson on effective oral communication e.g. adjusting voice to suit the purpose, pace, eye contact, etc. Cooperative learning skills

25 HCPS III Implementation Process Steps 1-3 (Planning) 1. Identify the Relevant Benchmarks 2. Determine Acceptable Evidence and Criteria 3. Determine the learning experiences that will enable students to learn what they need to know and to do

26 In Your Classroom... 4: Teach and collect evidence of student learning 5: Assess student work to inform instruction or use data to provide feedback 6: Evaluate student work and make judgments on learning results and communicate findings

27 Now Its Your Turn! Collaboratively complete the deconstructing the benchmarks HCPS III worksheets. (Step 1-Identify the Relevant Benchmarks, Slides 16-19) Use the NCR paper to record the assessment task(s) and rubric. (Step 2- Determine Acceptable Evidence and Criteria, Slides 20-23) Begin to record the learning experiences. (Step 3- Determine the Learning Experiences, Slide 24)
