ccss clear goals
CCSS = clear goals

Standards for reading, writing, and communicating in all grades must be clear and rigorous so that our public educational system gives students the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to succeed in postsecondary education and the workforce, to be well-informed and responsible citizens, and to lead more fulfilling personal lives.

ccss literacy into content areas
CCSS = literacy into content areas

Language skills are necessary for academic success in all disciplines. The ability to integrate reading, writing, speaking, and listening effectively builds understanding across all academic subjects as well as allowing for the development of 21st century skills within the context of these subjects. Critical thinking and reasoning, information literacy, collaboration, self-direction, and innovation are vital 21st century skills.

ccss challenges
CCSS = challenges.

Unlike mathematics, secondary literacy is not a discipline. It is “homeless” in that it belongs to everyone and no one. Literacy is used in secondary classrooms, but it is not taught in a systematic way.

ccss rich possibilities
CCSS = rich possibilities!

With the Common Core of Standards, many things now become possible. Because states will be working from the same core, we can create broad-based sharing of what works but, at the same time, provide local flexibility to decide how best to teach the core.

– Vicki Phillips & Carina Wong (PDK, February 2010)

but we need to move
But We Need to Move …

From blueprint…

…to action!

ldc offers a different choice
LDC Offers a Different Choice!

So teachers don’t have to

‘move from blueprint to action’ alone.

module section 1 what task
Module Section 1: What Task?

What task sets clear, measurable goals for learning?

  • YOU select template
  • YOUR CCSS standards are “hard-wired”in
  • YOU add your state/local content standards
  • YOU “plug and play” to build teaching task
  • YOU score results using LDC common rubric

Task 2 Template (Argumentation/Analysis L1, L2, L3): [Insert essential question] After reading _____ (literature or informational texts), write an _________(essay or substitute) that addresses the question and support your position with evidence from the text(s). L2 Be sure to acknowledge competing views. L3 Give examples from past or current events or issues to illustrate and clarify your position.

module section 2 what skills
Module Section 2: What Skills?

What skills do students need to succeed on the teaching task?

YOU identify, define, cluster, and order the skills students need to complete the task.

module section 3 what instruction
Module Section 3: What Instruction?

How will students be taught to succeed on the teaching task?

  • YOU establish the instructional plan – or instructional ladder – to teach students the skills necessary to succeed on the task
  • YOU create plan includes mini-tasks w/ scoring guide, instructional strategies, pacing guide
  • Skills Cluster 2: Reading Process (Skill: Essential Vocabulary)
  • Mini-Task: In your notebook, identify key words or phrases as you read and define them denotatively and connotatively in context of the passage you are reading. Add terms we identified as the “language of the discipline.”
  • Scoring Guide:
  • Selects appropriate text(s) for task
  • Creates a first draft of a bibliography (if applicable).
  • Writes in readable prose.
  • Instruction: Lesson plans, pacing guides to teach skill via mini-task(s)
module section 4 what results
Module Section 4: What Results?

How good is good enough?

  • YOU score and share sample student work
  • YOU can opt create classroom assessment tasks by using same template task– a “dipstick” to see how well students do on their own
  • Benchmark papers are being produced by SCALE (Stanford), Measured Progress
  • You can also produce your own as a state (Pennsylvania did a first round)
  • And you can also produce your own locally.

modules
Modules

Module templates support teachers in developing instruction to use over about 2-4 weeks. They help teachers design instruction – their choice – focused on guiding students to complete a single literacy task linked to content.

How does a module template….

…turn into a module?

Teaching task + module template=LDC Module

  • But don’t forget!
  • You can select the template module of your choice.
  • You can change it any way you like.
  • Or you can create your own!
your turn design your own module
Your turn! Design your own module.
  • 1. Get back into your same groups
  • 2. Insert your teaching task into the module template.
  • Work your way through the module to see how a module template works with a new task.
  • Don’t worry too much about whether or not you like this particular template module. Remember, you can design your own. Just glimpse possibilities!
  • Be ready to share your thoughts.
