SPEARFISH SCHOOL DISTRICT CURRICULUM PLANNING DEVELOPMENT By Jennifer Nehl, M. Ed.

OUTCOMES  Our school district will have a vertically aligned curriculum in all subject areas, K-12.  Develop k-12 curriculum map for each subject area.  K-12 Vertical Teams engage in alignment process and develop curriculum plan  Horizontal grade level & subject area teams develop/determine Essential Learning Outcomes or learning targets and articulate units of study for each subject area  Our school district will have Common summative assessments in place, k-12, to measure learning in each subject area.  Teachers in each subject area will develop common summative and formative assessments to measure learning of the essential learning outcomes or learning targets.

DISAGGREGATED TEMPLATE

EXPLORING THE STANDARDS http://sdccteachers.k12.sd.us

CCSS MATHEMATICS STANDARDS Two Types of Standards  8 Standards of Mathematical Practice (recurring throughout the grades)  Mathematical Content (this will be different at each grade level) 6

STANDARDS OF MATHEMATICAL PRACTICE 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. 7

1. They demonstrate independence. 2. They build strong content knowledge. 3. They respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline. 4. They comprehend as well as critique. 5. They value evidence. 6. They use technology and digital media strategically and capably. 7. They come to understand other perspectives and cultures

Content literacy is defined as the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process and understand information needed to evaluate, comprehend and apply content specific information.

HOW WE GOT TO THIS PLACE myOER provides the framework for the blueprint’s evolution

SUMMATIVE & FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT Summative Assessment: How much have students learned at a particular point in time? Formative Assessment: How can we use assessments to help students learn more?

SUMMATIVE ASSESSMENT The purpose of summative assessment is:  to measure student achievement at a particular point in time for reporting and accountability;  to sort students in rank order; and  to maximize student learning through standardized tests.

FORMATIVE ASSESSMENT The purpose of formative assessment is:  to promote further improvement of student learning during the learning process and  to involve students in the ongoing assessment of their own achievement.

17 FORMATIVE ASSESSMENTS Formative assessment results are used primarily by students, educators, and parents. Results are used for:  helping students see and hit the target(s) and  identifying student needs and drives instruction.

It isn’t the method that determines whether the assessment is summative or formative… …it is how the results are used.

ELA ORIGINAL BLUEPRINT

LOOK AT US NOW: ELA Evolution over time: Change began in July and ended yesterday

ELA: WHAT’S DIFFERENT AND WHY?  No docs/no pdfs…only view  Focus descriptor and length revised and move  No anchor standards  End results:  More room  Readability  User friendly  Reactions?

MATH ORIGINAL BLUEPRINT 8 th Grade—based on Dana Center

CONNECTING TO DISAGGREGATED STANDARDS Link to all of the disaggregated standards for an Instructional Focus helps users visualize the overall process and alignment to the CCSS.

BLUEPRINT VS. CHECKLIST  Checklist: The amount of repetition and focus is based on research (Gates Foundation and Common Core.org)rather than the blueprint.  The blueprint supports the checklist not the other way: Michele and Marcia, if you are working with a district that already has a curriculum map, how could the checklist be valuable?

VERTICAL ALIGNMENT ARTICLE

DEFINING CURRICULUM

 Get into groups five.  Create a matchbook definition of curriculum.  No more then 15 words.  Not a list  As much of a sentence as possible.  Write matchbook definition and be ready to share.
