Leon County Schools Next Generation Content Area Reading Professional Development (NGCARPD) Summer 2012 Using Common Core to Enhance your Instruction 1
What should I know about the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). knowledge and skills students should have so that they will graduate from high school being college and career-ready English-language arts and math
What should I know about Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? The Standards are based on international models, research and Input from state departments of education, scholars, assessment developers, professional organizations, educators, parents, and students. There were successive drafts and numerous rounds of feedback The Standards are aligned with college and work expectations.
What should I know about Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? The Standards are fewer, deeper, clearer. Students will be assessed on the FCAT 2.0 (based on NGSS) through the spring of 2014. Floridas adoption of Common Core includes implementation of the content area literacy standards. Florida State Board Rule includes Next Generation Content Area Professional Development (NGCARPD) for content area teachers which sets the stage for Common Core content area literacy standards. The first assessments created by PARCC (Partnership for Assessment for College and Careers) will be administered in 2014- 2015.
What are the PARCC Assessments? The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a 24-state consortium working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and math that measure Common Core State Standards. The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the 2014-15 school year. PARCC is contracting with two research universities to develop models of innovative, online-delivered items and rich performance tasks proposed for use in the PARCC assessments.
Lets take a look at the Common Core State Standards for Literacy.
Three Major Sections A comprehensive K-5 section English/Language Arts Literacy History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects
Each of the three sections is divided into strands. Lets look at English/Language Arts 6-12 (pages 34-58). Find these strands in your packet. Highlight them. Reading Literature (pp. 36-38) Reading Informational Text (pp. 39-40) Writing (pp. 42-47) Speaking & Listening (pp. 49-50) Language (pp. 52-56)
If you are another content area teacher, locate the History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects section (pages 59-66). You have two strands. Locate them and highlight the heading at the top of the appropriate page. Reading for Social Studies (p. 61) Reading for Science & Technical Subjects (p. 62) Writing for Social Studies, Science & Technical Subjects (p. 64-66)
Each strand has 10 College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards. There are anchor standards for Reading and Writing that are identical across all grades and content areas. Lets take a closer look. College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards
College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading 1. Go to page 35 for English/Language Arts, or page 60 for Other Subject Areas. 2. Read the Note on Range of Content for Student Reading. Highlight key words that reflect the increasing demands of Common Core. 3. Share in your content groups. 4. What do you see here that you havent seen in previous standards?
Lets take a closer look at the four clusters….. Read the three standards underneath the Key Ideas and Details cluster.
Reading: Key Ideas and Details (1) Evidence (2) Main idea/details (summary) (3) Interaction across text
Craft and Structure (4) Vocabulary (5) Structure (6) Point of View
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas (7) Multimedia (8) Argument (9) Multi-text
Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity (10) Text Complexity
Locate the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing for your content area: page 41 for English Language Arts page 63 for Social Studies, Science, and other Technical Areas
Read Note on Range and Content of Student Writing. Highlight key words and phrases that show the high expectations of Common Core State Standards for writing. Discuss at your table.
College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing There are 10 College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing. Four Clusters: Text Types and Purposes Production and Distribution of Writing Research to Build and Present Knowledge Range of Writing
Text Types and Purposes (1) Argumentative (2) Informative/explanatory (3) Narrative
Production and Distribution of Writing (4) Organization and coherence (5) Writing process – revision and editing included (6) Use of technology to publish
Production and Distribution of Writing (7) Research (8) Synthesis of Research (9) Use evidence to support analysis
Production and Distribution of Writing (10) Range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.
Note the organization of the standards. Three sections: K-5, 6-8 Literacy, 9-12 Literacy Strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, and Language 10 anchor standards in each strand Four clusters in each strand Three Appendices: Appendix A: Research Supporting Standards/Glossary Appendix B: Text Exemplars Appendix C: Samples of Student Writing
Locate the reading standards for your grade level and subject. Reading Standards for English Language Arts begin on page 36 for Literature and page 39 for Informational Text. Reading Standards for History/Social Studies begin on page 61. Reading Standards for Science and Technical Subjects begin on page 62.
Go deeper. 1.Note the organization of the reading standards, i.e. 6-8, 9-10, 11-12. 2.Review the anchor standards for your subject and grade level. 3.Look at standard 8 in cluster 3 (synthesis). 4.Highlight key words that show the progression from complex to more complex in the standard. 5.What do you notice about the progression of the reading anchor standards from grade to grade? 6.Discuss at your table.
Locate the writing standards for your grade level and subject. Writing Standards for English Language Arts begin on page 42. Writing Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Other Technical Areas begin on page 64.
Lets dig deeper into the writing standards. 1. Review the writing standards at your table. 2. Look at standard 1 in cluster 1 (argument). 3. Highlight key words that show the progression in the standard from grades 6- 12. 4. Discuss the instructional implications at your table.
Finally, lets examine the Anchor Standards for Language on page 61. 1. Read Note on Range and Content of Student Language Use. 2. Highlight key words that illustrate the increasing demands of Common Core. 3. Discuss. 4. Read through the Anchor Standards. 5. What standard(s) do you believe will present the greatest challenge for your students?
Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS) Lesson Plan Development 1. Using your course NGSS, identify three benchmarks you could teach through text OR enhance student understanding through text. 2. Select one benchmark to teach through a CIS lesson. 3. Select a Common Core reading or writing standard that supports the NGSS benchmark you identified. Step One: Identification of Benchmark and Texts for CIS
Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS) Lesson Plan Development 1. Search the internet and print resources to identify a text that addresses your content objectives. 2. Determine appropriate placement of text using the text complexity tools we provided on day two, i.e. Lexile Analyzer, text complexity rubric, and the information on reader and task. 3. Make a decision about the appropriateness of the text. Is it challenging and appropriate? Step Two: Text Selection for CIS Lesson
