Deep Curriculum Alignment Project for Mathematics ERIE 1 BOCES SUSAN ROTHWELL History of DCA *Three Year Mathematics Project *Over 25 School Districts involved *Professional Learning Community Building Valuable Resources Objectives of Year 3: Review embedded skills & vocabulary deconstructed from CCLS (Common Core Learning Standards) during year 2 Build sample tasks (questions) for the CCLS embedded skills that ensures multiple measures of assessment Peer review & build assessment solutions for the sample tasks Develop a regional scope & sequence by grade for the Common Core Learning Standards Review criteria for homeschool communications & report card alignment to CCLS Understanding the Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics Common Core Learning Standards 8 Standards for Mathematical Practices Grade Level Focus Points Required Fluencies for CCLS Shifts in Mathematics NYS Assessment Transition Plan for ELA & Math Summarize at least 3 key points with a partner. DCA (Deep Curriculum Alignment Project) allows us to tackle this TOGETHER! We are stronger together than we are apart… What do these standards mean? Deconstructin g the Common Core Learning Standards (DCA- YEAR 2) Grade Level Teams Worked to Define the new CCLS & evaluate alignment Embedded skills written as measureable (using measurable verbs) Alignment Evaluation Comparison of 2005 NYS Standards to New NYS Common Core Learning Standards www.mathdca.wikispaces.com Click on: Common Core Learning Standards to access grade level documents Sample questions for the skills will be typed in this box Answer the following questions as a group and then post your responses around the room… 1) What are the characteristics of quality tasks or assessment items? 2) Describe multiple measures of assessment. 3) Explain what a ‘Balanced Assessment’ might include. Grade 5 Assessment Item Comparison Compare the NYS Test Item Grade 5 Math (2005) with the Example Common Core Performance Task 5th Grade Math. •What are the embedded skills that the student needed to know for each question? How does the level of rigor compare? Grade 2- Place Value Grade Level Sample Modules Grade 4- Fractions Grade 7- Arithmetic Operations on Polynomials Grade 9 (Algebra 1)- Algebraic Expressions NYS CCLS Resources: www.engageny.org Many textbooks claim to be fully aligned to CCLS Common Core Aligned Resources? Can this be true? The Common Core Standards document address this issue and clearly state that nothing published is aligned to the level of both procedural & conceptual understanding that the CCLS demand Guidance can be obtained from a variety of Sample Task Resources such as: Buckle Down, Singapore Mathematics, People Choice, etc. *Be careful not to spend too much time in these resources- STAY on target with being aligned to what the embedded skills demand… www.mathdca.wikispaces.com CLICK: common core learning standards Navigating the DCA Common Core Math Web Site *you will now be at the new CCLS site: www.commoncoremath.wikispaces.com DCA Common Core Math How to sign in How to request membership DCA Common Core Math Wiki How to download the Sample Task Documents How to SAVE the downloaded document (and name it appropriately) How to upload the NEW ANNOTATED document (that contains your work) Creating Sample Tasks using Microsoft Word Equation Editor See guidance document (located on the center of the tables) Location on Toolbar How to ‘Insert a New Equation’ How to ‘Insert a Symbol or Fraction’ Clip Art Two site are located as links on the wiki for great clip art. Just CLICK: Clip Art Sites for Sample Tasks Let’s begin… Group Selections & Team Roles Select group members for smaller working group (2-3 per group) Decide as a table how to divide up the domains for the sample tasks among the smaller working groups (paper copies have been provided in the boxes at the tables) Select a person from you small group to work with the computer (using the wiki and uploading/ downloading the documents) Begin by reviewing the embedded skills & the standard from which they were deconstructed Add or modify these skills/ vocabulary with RED font ONLY Tomorrow…. Is only a day away…. Annie We will be picking back up where we have left off tomorrow. Select a good stopping point and upload your last domain. Be sure to label your paper copies of where your have left off and where you need to start. Reflections & Planning Survey by Grade Level Where have you left off Planning for next time Peer Review Process Creating solutions for Sample Tasks
