3 COLLABORATIVE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING TEAMS Network 18 – CFN#11 – R.O.C.K.S.(Reflection, Outcomes, Collaboration, Knowledge, Standards)Session Nine – Professional Learning Showcase /Core Curriculum StandardsWednesday June 23rd 2010Presenter: Mr. Chris Lowrey AUSSIE Literacy Consultant
4 Our VisionsMorning Our vision is to develop an effective learning community that is collaborative and respects each other personally by having a clear structure and positive attitude and working through a process of building understandings for conducting effective Instructional Rounds. By following a structure and working through processes of successful learning we aim to hone life long leaders who aspire to appreciate differentiation and aim to exceed expectations when considering academic goals.Afternoon Our vision is to share our school community experiences and be willing to enhance our teaching practice through networking and sharing our learning's transparently, to grow both personally and professionally through the process of Instructional Rounds. We understand the need to collaborate, to listen while others express their private thoughts and have ours respected reciprocally. The outcome of improving teaching practices will be at the forefront of our work and while accepting there will be challenges, we aim to turn these into our next goals in order to develop outcomes and successful thinkers and achieve measurable results that inform practice in our schools.

13 7. What does our future hold? The New Common Core Curriculum standards. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
14 What is the Common Core Standard Initiative? The Common Core State Standard Initiative is a significant and historicopportunity for states to collectively develop and adopt a core set of standards in Mathematics and English LanguageArts including literacy standards for Science and Social Studies and Technology
15 Who is Participating?Forty Eight States (minus Alaska and Texas), DC, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have signed on to the Common Core State Standards Initiative led by the National Governors Association Center and the Council of Chief State School Officers.This initiative will potentially reach 43.5 million students which is about 87% of the total student population.Source--SchoolDataDirect.org 2007
16 Activity 1:On your own, please write down the skills and understandings you believe a twenty-first century literate person needs to have.Please share with a partner, compare and borrow and come up with your shared salient points.Share with the whole group
17 The Vision of the Writers Students who meet the StandardsReadily undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the heart of understanding and enjoying great works of literature.Habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today in print and digitally.Actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that builds knowledge, enlarges experience, and broadens worldviews.Reflexively demonstrate the cogent reasoning and use of evidence that is essential to both private deliberation and responsible citizenship in a democratic society.
18 Activity 2: 1-2-4 Read the Introduction to the Common Core Standards By yourself note 5 most important facts about the standardsSpeak with a partner and review each others ideas--select 5 most important from the 10Report Out
19 Big Ideas Grade Levels k-8--Grade bands 9/10, 11-12 Focus on results rather than meansIntegrated model of literacyResearch and media skills blended into the standards as a wholeShared responsibility for students literacy developmentFocus on coherence in instruction and assessment
20 ConsiderationsThe following considerations guided the standards development workgroups in setting the college and career readiness standards.Fewer, clearer, higher:produce a set of fewer, clearer and higher standards.translatable to and teachable in the classroom.cover only those areas that are critical for student successScaffolded and developmentalInternationally benchmarked:informed by the content, rigor and organization of standards of high-performing countries and statesall students are prepared to succeed in a global economy and society.Special populations:the inclusion of all types of learners was a priorityRecognized that special populations may require additional time and appropriate instructional support with aligned assessmentsselected language intended to make the standards documents accessible to different learners
21 Considerations continued Assessment:assessment of the common core state standards is not currently being developedstandards will ultimately be the basis for an assessment system that would include multiple measures of student performance.attention will be turned to creating a high quality system of measurement that would include proper incentives for teachers to teach these standardsa variety of assessments must be created to reinforce teaching and learning tied to the agreed upon expectations.Standards and curriculum:Standards are not curriculum.This initiative is about developing a set of standards that are common across states.The curriculum that is developed will continue to be a local responsibility (or state-led, where appropriate).The curriculum could become more consistent from state to state based on the commonality of the standardsthere are multiple ways to teach these standards, and therefore, there will be multiple approaches that could help students accomplish the goals set out in the standards.
22 Organization of the English Language Arts Standards Contains an “Introduction”Comprised of Three Main SectionsOne Comprehensive K-5One ELA content area specific sections for 6-12 andOne History/Social Studies, Science, Technical Subjects content section for 6-12Each Section is divided into StrandsK-5 and 6-12 are Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking and LanguageThe 6-12 History/Social Studies, Science, Technical Subjects section focuses on Reading and writing onlyEach Strand is preceded by College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards that is identical across all grades and content areas--where we want the children to be at the end of Grade 12.Each CCR anchor Standard has an accompanying grade specific standard translating the broader CCR statement into grade appropriate end of year expectations.
23 Section K-5 and 6-12: The Reading Standards Strand The Reading Standards in Grades K-5 and 6-12Reading for Literature, Reading for Informational Text and Reading Standards for Foundational SkillsReading for Literature and Reading for Informational Text are divided into the 10 grade specific standards1-3 Key Ideas and Details,4-6 Craft and Structure,7-9 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas,10 Range of Reading and Level of Text ComplexityK-5 only Reading Standards for Foundational Skills are divided intoPrint ConceptsPhonological AwarenessPhonics and Word RecognitionFluency
24 Section K-5 and 6-12 : The Writing Standards Strand The Writing Standards in Grades K-5 and 6-12Opens with College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for WritingThe Writing Standards are divided into the 10 grade specific standards1-3 Text Types and Purposes4-6 Production and Distribution of Writing,7-9 Research to Build and Present Knowledge,10 Range of Writing
25 Section K-5 and 6-12: The Speaking and Listening Standards Strand The Speaking and Listening Standards in Grades K-5 and 6-12:Open with Six College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Speaking and ListeningGrouped as follows:1-3 Comprehension and Collaboration4-6 Presentation of Knowledge and IdeasEach has a complementary grade specific standard detailing the skills and understandings the students must master
26 Section K-5 and 6-12: The Language Standards Strand The Language Standards in Grades K-5 and 6-12:Open with Six College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for LanguageGrouped as follows:1-2 Conventions of Standard English3 Knowledge of Language4-6 Vocabulary Acquisition and UseEach has a complementary grade specific standard detailing the skills and understandings the students must master
27 Section K-5 and 6-12: Measuring Text Complexity Measuring Text Complexity: Three FactorsQualitative Evaluation of the Text- Best measured or only measurable by an attentive human reader, such as levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demandsQuantitative Evaluation of the Text- refers to word length or frequency, sentence length and text cohesion, that are difficult if not impossible for a human reader to evaluate efficiently: readability measuresMatching Reader to Text and Task- Reader variables such as motivation,knowledge and experiences and task variables such as purpose and the complexity generated by the task assigned and the questions posedinherentcomplexityof textVariablesspecific toreaders
28 Standards in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Studies Reading is critical to building knowledge in History/Social Studies, Science and technical studies.Requires an appreciation of the norms and conventions of each disciplineEvidence in history and scienceDomain specific words and phrasesAttention to precise detailsStudents must be able toevaluate intricate argument, synthesize complex information, follow detailed descriptions of events and conceptsanalyze, evaluate and differentiate primary and secondary sources in historyGain knowledge from challenging textsMake use of elaborate diagrams and data to convey information and illustrate conceptsRead complex informational texts with independence and confidence

30 Developmental The new Common Core Standards are developmental. The depth and breadth of understanding of the standard increases with each grade level.The end expectation, college and career readiness, is made clear right from the very beginning and actually starts the document off.This readiness is a major goal of education.
31 Progression Leading to Learning Grade K- With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a textGrade 1- Ask and answer questions about key details in a textGrade 2-Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why and how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a textGrade 3-Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, explicitly using the text as the basis for the answersGrade 4- Draw on details and examples of a text to support statementsGrade 5-Quote from a text to support statements about the textGrade 6-Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the textGrade 7-Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the textGrade 8-Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text
