2 Different ApproachesSame Goal

School A

School B

Large School – 20 teachers per subject

Works within the department and reports to curriculum coordinator about the CCSS

Teachers chose to align one new course semester (World Literature) completely to the CCSS. Most of the rest of the department implemented as many of the 10 Reading Standards as possible.

Met as a department regularly. All teachers agreed to cover less and go deeper.

  • Small school – 2 teachers per subject

  • Works with rest of the faculty once a week for an hour about CCSS

  • Teachers implemented 2 CCSS across the curriculum 1st semester. (Reading #1 – Writing #9).

  • Each week there were reports “how it is going” with the rest of the faculty. Examples of student work for one class are shared.

Changes challenges and discoveries both schools discovered the same things
Changes, Challenges and DiscoveriesBoth schools discovered the same things!

Changes

“We had to cut our content. We were covering too much and

not going into enough depth.”

“Our students needed to do more work. We (the teachers) were the ones working so hard. We incorporated more chunked reading/writing/journaling.”

“We made sure our students were doing more reading and writing under our nose.”

“We needed to add more productive small group work in class.”

Changes, Challenges and Discoveries

Challenges

“We needed to add informational text into our classes.”

“Implementation takes time.”

“Our students were not used to working so hard.

They whined about the hard work at first, but

got used to it after a while.”

“We had to talk as a department about how we

teach some of the standards that were

confusing.”

Changes, Challenges and Discoveries

Discoveries

“Students were able to work hard and learn.”

Teachers said they found they needed to become more of a facilitator of learning than a speaker.

“Students liked working in small groups and they seemed to like class better and learn more.”

“Planning took more time (this will lessen with time), but facilitating a classroom was easier.”
