1 Incorporating State ELD Standards into Curriculum and Instruction SDE Regional TrainingSpring 2010
2 Why Are You Here?Build background on incorporating ELD standards into the curriculumBuild the foundation for capacity as you go back to your buildingsDo we want to say a variety of thinking levels?As ISS objective group lets develop the language objective… this is hard, and we work smarter together!!! Yeah our group!!!2
3 Table Roles Manager: Keeps team on task, ensures that all share Scribe: Takes notes, creates chartsReporter: Summarizes for larger groupSupply Soldier: Acquires needed materials
5 Idaho StatisticsSize of the foreign-born population, 2008:39 out of 51Percent foreign born in the total population, 2008:26 out of 51Percent change in the foreign-born population, 2000 to 2008:14 out of 5147.4 percent of foreign-born workers earned less than $25,000 per yearThe immigrant population in Idaho living below the federal poverty threshold changed by 26.3 percent between 2000 and 2007(Migration Policy Institute)
13 BICS and CALP BICS CALP Carries a social conversation easily Follows simple, single & multiple stage directionsAnswers direct questions orallyAppears fluent in EnglishCALPReads & understands grade level text expository testConducts researchWrites an essayAnswers abstract questions in writingIs fluent in EnglishCummins named the playground speech Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills or BICS. He found in his study of students who were literate in their own language or came from a home with cultural capital that it took between 2-3 years to gain social fluency. Of course there are students who learn playground speech quickly and others who take more time. Students who have BICS appear to be fluent.1. Say: The academic language, what you might need for Algebra let’s say, Cummins calls Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency Skills or CALPS. Now for students who have literacy skills in their first language developing fluency can take anywhere from 5-7 years. The difference between CALPS and BICS is that when students have fully developed CALPS they are fluent.. it isn’t that they just appear fluent as with BICS.
14 How Do I Teach Content & Develop Language? The WHAT of teachingContent area standardsWith the HOW of teachingELD standards
15 Creating Language Objectives ELD Standards:are correlated to State Language Arts standards;include Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening;are divided into K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12; andare grouped by language acquisition levels (Handout).
16 B AB I EF/F ELD Standard 3: Reading ELD Goal 3.1: Reading Process Grade KGrade 1Grade 2ELD 3.1.1Use Text Features to Locate InformationK.LA.1.1.1Hold a book right side up and turn pages in the correct direction.K.LA Name the parts of a book, including front cover, back cover, and title.1.LA Match oral words to printed words (e.g., pointing to print as one reads).1.LA Locate and identify the title, author, and illustrator and table of contents of a book or reading selection.2.LA Identify titles, tables of contents, and chapter headings to locate information.BIdentify cover and title of a book; hold book right side up and turn pages in the correct direction.ABIdentify words, sentences, and parts of a book (e.g., cover, title).IUse the title and illustrations to aid comprehension of information in a book or reading selection.EF/FUse grade-level text features to locate information in a book or reading selection. [N/A for K]

19 Share your ideas with your table. Activity:With a partner, find and discuss 5 ELD standards that could be added to your content objectives.Share your ideas with your table.
21 ActivityUse the Math & Science Guidebook to complete the scavenger hunt on the following slide.Work with a partner.
22 Math & Science Guidebook Scavenger Hunt What to FindPageNumberI could use this in my classroom ….Name 3 scaffolding strategiesFind 4 steps for teaching vocabularyLocate the function word listFind the academic language skills chart for your grade levelLocate the discussion sentence starters table
24 Tyler, 1949 Objectives should include specific knowledge statements And result in behaviors that demonstrate proficiencyRalph Tyler is the father of objectives24
25 Wise & Okey, 1983 Up to 41 percentile gain, if objectives are stated: IntentionallyConsistentlyIn the right wayRalph Tyler is the father of objectives25
26 Kendall & Marzano (2007)When objectives are written and articulated, there is a strong correlation to student learningUp to 23 percentile gainRalph Tyler is the father of objectives26
27 Althoff et al. (2007) Posting objectives reduces miscommunication Up to 28 percentile gainRalph Tyler is the father of objectives27
28 Students can tell others what they are learning and why. Students read C/O and L/O before and after each lessonTeacher StudentStudents know where to find objectives in my classroom.Make arrow more transparentMake balance between itemsBox Key words from continuumOn Toolbox – write out complete directionsWelcome group.Say aloud, before we start take a few moments to mark where you are with relation to objectives both in your toolbox (handout) and on the large chart poster.Place where the majority of your staff are…I have posted the agenda and assignments on the boardI know where to find objectives in the curriculum guides and textbooks28
29 Why Objectives? Students/Teachers Objectives are critical for all grade levels & content areasStudents must know why if they are going to engage in learningStudents need to know what expectations are for mastery of the objective and how they will demonstrate their mastery.
30 Why Objectives? Assessment Curriculum delivery (English)Written, Taught, TestedBackward designCriteria for mastery? (Redding)FormativeDiagnostic-Prescriptive: Pre/Post- clear, specific and aligned with criteria (checking on Bloom’s level)Embedded: Within assignments and activitiesSummativePeriodic: Mastery at several points through the yearAnnual: Criterion and norm-referenced
31 What are the implications for your school/district? ActivityBrainstorm the assessments that are available for informing instruction.Record on chart paper . . .A for accurateH for helpfulE for experimentalM for missingWhat are the implications for your school/district?
33 What are the differences between content objectives and language objectives?
34 Objectives Content Objective Language Objective The “What” we’re going to learn todayComes from district/State content standardsThe “How” we’re going to learn our content todayComes from ELD standardsRemember we’re having a practice to think through and learn.What you just did was to differentiate between a content objective and those items that are not a content objective but something else all together.Ways to write objectives34

50 How do we incorporate language objectives into our curriculum?
51 Activity As a group examine a curriculum guide. Select one content objective.On chart paper, write the content objective in student-friendly language.Using the ELD standards, write a language objective.Stay and Stray
52 On Your Own Choose 3 content objectives from your curriculum. Rewrite the content objective, if needed.Add a language objective.Discuss process.
