Our Balance is Shifting…
• From genre to text types
• From historically fiction-heavy classrooms to
balance of narrative and informational reading
• From teacher-centered to student-centered
environments
• From NCLB to a much greater emphasis on
writing and deep comprehension

The CCSS bring us 6 Shifts (among many)
• http://bit.ly/6shiftsforstudentsandparents
The Progressions of the CCSS
• Organization supports RTI or Multi-Tiered
Systems of Support!
• Progressions support clear assessment to target
next steps
(Not that the student isn’t able to achieve a skill,
rather the student is at a different level for that
skill. The question becomes, “What do we need
to do to increase proficiency?”)
• Standards are essential but inadequate by themselves
• To be successful, educators also need:
• Curriculum, including units of study, based on the
standards
• Instructional materials that align with the standards
• A variety of assessments to measure student
progress
• Resources and tools
• Time to adjust classroom practices
• Professional development
• One piece of the summative assessment that we will be
employing in 2014-15
• As all items, constructed response, selected response,
etc., will be based on claims
• Provide a glimpse of the depth and flexibility of
thinking students will be asked to negotiate
• Lead us to envision the learning progressions needed
across the grades to get to this cognitive rigor
MAISA
•MAISA - Michigan Association for Intermediate
