Session Overview
  • Purpose and Shifts of New Standards
  • Overview of Alaska English/Language Arts and Mathematics Standards
  • Timeline for Implementation
  • Impact on CTE Programs
history of alaskan standards
History of Alaskan Standards
  • 1990s: Alaska standards in reading, writing, and mathematics were developed by age spans(K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12)
  • 2004: Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) in reading, writing, and mathematics were developed to define standards at each grade level (grades 3 – 10); assessments developed
  • 2006: Grade Level Expectations were expanded to include kindergarten through second grade
what do we know about alaska s current grade level expectations gle s
What do we know about Alaska’s Current Grade Level Expectations (GLE’s)?

February - March 2011, Alaskan educators reviewed Alaska’s Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) and the proposed “common core” national standards.

We know:

  • the GLEs are low in rigor.
  • the GLEs are over six years old.
  • the GLEs do not extend beyond grade 10.
  • the GLEs are broad and open to teacher interpretation.
  • the GLEs are a blueprint for assessment.

  • The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is an international study which began in the year 2000.
    • PISA aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students in participating countries/economies.
    • Since the year 2000 over 70 countries and economies have participated in PISA.

alaska s new english language arts ela mathematics standards
Alaska‘s New English Language Arts (ELA) & Mathematics Standards
  • Aligned with college and career expectations.
  • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order skills
  • Consistent learning goals for all students, regardless of where they live.

Note: The Alaska Standards are equal in rigor to the national Common Core State Standards.

shifts in english language arts
Shifts in English Language Arts
  • Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literature.
  • Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text.
  • Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary.
shifts in mathematics
Shifts in Mathematics
  • Focus: 2-3 topics focused on deeply in each grade.
  • Coherence: Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the grade.
  • Rigor: Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real-world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts.

foundational skills in the early grades
Foundational Skills in the Early Grades
  • The instruction of the basic reading components is still an expectation
  • The standards for these skill are found in grades K-5

Two areas of equal importance

  • Standards for Mathematical Practice
  • Standards for Mathematical Content

The Standards for Mathematical Practice are embedded at every grade level to establish habits of mind that will empower students to become mathematically literate.

The Standards of Mathematical Practice include the Math Process Standards

  • Problem Solving
  • Communication
  • Reasoning
  • Connections

what does this mean for cte
What does this mean for CTE?
  • Students need mastery of ELA and math standards to excel in CTE programs.
  • CTE programs help students develop transferable strategies to apply and practice use of ELA and math knowledge and skills through multiple strategies, e.g. integrated, infused, imbedded, reinforced content.
  • CTE needs to insure our instructional strategies help students understand ELA and math standards, e.g. translate terminology.
