Launching the Common Core State Standards Partnership for 21Century Learning presents: Above and Beyond http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7K MM387HNQk 21st Century Skills and the 4c’s are infused in the Common Core Standards which are the end goals of the Career and College Ready Standards Career and College Ready Standard examples: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when reading or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. Prepare and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. Look for evidence of the 4C’s and discuss them with a partner. We will fully implement the Common Core State Standards in 2014-2015 We will take the new national test with Common Core Standards in Spring of 2015 • Council of Chief State School Officers and National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, teachers, school administrators, and experts worked together to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare students for college and workforce. • Standards adopted by most states. • Currently each state has its own set of standards; student expectations vary from state to state. Where did the Common Core standards come from? States could add up to 15% to the Common Core • California added standards to the Common Core to address perceived gaps and to ensure that the rigor of California’s existing standards would be maintained. How will the Common Core Standards be different? • Includes rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order thinking skills • Performance-based collaborative activities and assessments • Integrated literacy across content areas including Science and Social Studies • Stronger emphasis on informational text, research and media skills Shifts in ELA Common Core Standards: Staircase of complexity design, the standards build upon each other A combination of literary and informational texts Integration of Social Science and Science content knowledge 3 types of writing: Informative/Explanatory, Narrative, and Opinion/Persuasive taught K-12 Emphasis on academic vocabulary Distribution of Literacy and Informational Passages by Grade Grade Literature Information 4 50% 50% 8 45% 55% 12 30% 70% ELA Standards Organization Reading for Literature (10 standards) Reading for Informational Text (10 standards) Foundation (4 standards – K-5 only) Writing (10 standards) Language (6 standards) Speaking and Listening (6 standards) Each of the standard areas have substrands, for example in Reading for Literature and Information: Key Ideas and Details Craft and Structure Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Range of Reading and Level of Complexity. These substrands are the same for all grade levels. Breaking it down….. Focus-narrow and deepen the scope Coherence connecting across grade levels Fluency-speed and accuracy Deep understanding Application of concepts Dual Intensity practice and understand Shifts in Common Core Math There are two sets of standards in math: • Math Domain Standards by grade level • K-12 Mathematical Practice Standards Counting and Cardinality (K only) Operations in Algebraic Thinking Number and Operations in Base Ten Measurement and Data Geometry Number and OperationsFractions (grades 3-5) Math Domain Standards New Common Core Assessments Who is creating them? SMARTER-Balanced Assessment Consortium Who else is using these tests? Currently 29 states What is the purpose? To develop a comprehensive and innovative assessment system for grades 3-8 and grade 11 in English Language Arts and Mathematics aligned to the Common Core Standards so that students leave high school prepared for post secondary success in college or a career. What will happen to CSTs? These tests will replace CST, CMA, and STS. We will take the last STAR assessments in the spring of 2014. How will the National Assessments be different than the STAR? Summative assessments aligned to College and Career Readiness Standards Computer adaptive Administered during last 12 weeks of school year Results will show achievement and growth Question types: 1. Selected Response 2. Constructed Response 3. Extended Response 4. Performance –Based Tasks 5. Technology-Enhanced 6. Technology-Enabled Grade 5 ELA Selected Response Example Grade 3 Math Selected Response Example Student Question Grade 3 Math Selected Response Students answer all four questions to provide teachers with formative assessment results on student understanding of the content. Grade 4 ELA Technology Enhanced Example Passage Grade 4 ELA Technology Enhanced Example Student Question Grade 4 math Technology Enhanced Grade 3 ELA Example Constructed Response Rubric to Score Selected Response Example Grade 3 ELA Reading and Writing PerformanceBased Assessment Part 1 includes reading an article and watching a video then providing a constructed response to three questions to demonstrate comprehension Part 2: Write an Opinion Essay using evidence from the video and article to support their opinion on the topic. Rubric for proficient Grade 5 Math Performance Task Event Takes place over several days Part 1 Grade 5 Math Performance Task Part 2 Grade 5 Math Performance Task Part 3 Grade 5 Math Performance Task Part 4 Grade 5 Math Performance Task Part 5 You have a copy of the 5 tasks for this assessment on your table. In your group divide up the tasks and individually or with a partner complete one task. When you are finished find someone from another group who had the same task and compare how you solved the problem. When you return to your seat you will receive a copy of the scoring rubrics so you can see how well you performed on this task. Curriculum Resources Math: Framework 2013 Math Materials 2016 ELA: Framework 2014 ELA Materials 2018 Common Core Transition Plan 2011-12 was an Awareness Year The District provided with an overview to many groups including: K-5 PLC Teacher Leaders All Kindergarten Teachers Special Ed PLC Leaders Librarians GATE Parent Advisory School Board Transition Plan for 2012-13 Site Level Common Core Standards overview provided at all elementary sites today Grade level specific training on the Mathematical Practice Standards tomorrow 6 Common Staff meetings – Live! Trimester 1: Mathematical Practice Standards and Number Talks Trimester 2: Performance-Based Assessment Trimester 3: Informational Writing Transition Plan for 2012-13 District Level September 10-PLC Leaders to Rigorous Curriculum Design October- K-12 articulation to develop Essential Standards for ELA and Math ELA and Math PLC Leaders will develop units and assessments PLC Writing Leaders will develop K-5 rubrics in writing Kindergarten Leaders will develop ELA and math units, assessments and revise report card November- All Kindergarten teachers to Fetzer training on Common Core writing. In the spring, there will be a second training on the new essential standards, timelines, assessments, and units being developed. Afterschool workshops will be offered on Informational Reading and Writing and Mathematical Practice Standards. These sessions will be telecast through the Live! program so you can attend via computer at your site. Transition Plan for 2013-14 Implement CCSS math units and assessments Implementation of CCSS writing Implement Kindergarten ELA and Math units, assessments, and report cards PLC Leaders will continue to develop ELA units for implementation in 2014-15 How will teaching and learning change in the 21st Century? http://youtu.be/yfpa9uTWdJE Check for Understanding With your team determine which object in the jar represents one of the 4C’s. Performance-Based Assessment Knowing the important role the 4C’s will play in 21st Century Learning how can you apply them in your daily instruction now? Share your thinking with your table group and collaborate on how you can purposefully including these important skills in your teaching. The Common Core Standards are an opportunity to transform how we teach our students to prepare them for the 21st Century How will you begin the change?
