Let’s Build A Team! What’s Your “True Color?”

Have you ever tried to communicate something

to someone and it just didn't come out right? Or perhaps you thought it came out right but they took it wrong? Why is that…? Although there are numerous systems for explaining our behaviors and personalities,

the True Colors communication model

is one of the most fun to apply!

Created by: Mary Miscisin

Learning Targets:

  • I can explain the Why, What, and How of the Kentucky Leadership Network (KLN).

  • I can identify the 4 major components that form the foundation of the KLN.

Let’s Take A Break!

Setting Group Norms

  • Group norms are agreed upon ways in which we will work together so that productivity is maximized.

  • They are posted and reviewed (verbally and in writing) at all meetings.

  • Let’s work together to set the norms that our Network will abide by.

Group Norms

Non-Negotiable Group Norms

  • Be present and be engaged in the work

  • We are all equal partners in this work

  • Seek first to understand, and then to be understood

  • others?

    • Think individually, write down 3 norms that you feel should be included on our list (2 minutes).

    • Share with your team, designate a recorder/synthesizer and share your 3 Norms and come up with a group list. Your group should be prepared to share one Norm that should be considered for our list (5 minutes).

Don’t we already have enough state standards?

Our recent Kentucky state standards …

The content students are assessed on in KY….

(subset of the Program of Studies)

As a result of KERA, broad goals and academic expectations….

The content teachers are required to teach in KY….

  • Characteristics of Highly Effective Teaching and Learning

  • Leadership

“When Leadership Spells Danger”

  • On a post-it note, record your definition of ‘leadership’.

  • As you read the article, use the window notes organizer to capture important facts, questions that arise, feelings that are evoked and ideas that you have. (You may want to jot down page numbers by these for future reference.)

  • Look back at your definition—revise it if desired.

  • Discuss the article and your definitions with your table group. What facts, feelings, questions or ideas did you share?

  • Be prepared to share with entire group.

Leadership Discussion

  • What do you foresee as your role in establishing the District Leadership Team within your district?

  • What obstacles do you foresee in this work?

  • How will you use Adaptive Leadership in your role as a Network Teacher Leader?

Where did these new standards come from?

-launched by Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center).

The standards: Why and Who?

The Process - Common Core State Standards Initiative

  • State-led effort to establish consistent and clear education standards

  • Written by content experts, teachers, researchers and others

  • Nearly 10,000 comments from the public

  • Validation committee reviewed the standards

  • Each state chooses to adopt, NOT led by federal government.

By what criteria were the standards developed?

The standards:

  • Are aligned with college and workforce expectations;

  • Are clear, understandable and consistent;

  • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills;

  • Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;

  • Are informed by standards in other top performing countries, and

  • Are evidence-based.

What you won’t see…

  • Strategy use

  • Instructional advice

  • Everything

  • G/T or advanced work


Supports for students with special needs, ELLs

Whatelse do I need to know about theseStandards? A Design Summary

  • CCR vs. grade-specific Standards

  • Grade level Standards for K-8

  • Grade band Standards for 9-10 and 11-12

  • Emphasis on informational and persuasive text (NAEP)

  • A focus on results rather than means

  • An integrated model of literacy

How are the Standards organized?

Tabbing Activity Instructions

  • 4 Large Green Tabs

  • 3 Large Blue Tabs

  • 8 Small Red Flags

  • 4 Small Blue Flags

  • 6 Small Green Flags


Table Standard Assignments

Tables A – H: Use Writing Standard 7

(Pages 19, 21 K-5; Page 44 6-7-8; Page 46 9-10 Band and 11-12 Band) and

(Page 66 – Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects 6-12)

Tables I– P Use Language Standard 5

(Pages 27, 29 K-5; Page 53 6-7-8; Page 55 9-10 Band and 11-12 Band)


Work with a partner to complete your table’s assigned standards progression process.

Using a highlighter, identify changes in the verb usage and complexity of the standard from Kindergarten through grade 12.

You will share findings with the entire group to illustrate how the standards work across the grades K-12.

T-Chart Time

“If the U.S. is to return to a position of leadership in college completion and prepare students for high-skills jobs in a global economy, it is essential that states, schools and higher education develop a consensus concerning the skills and knowledge required for success in college and beyond. The common core state standards are an important first step in developing this consensus with rigorous and clear criteria that will provide a road map for success in rigorous college readiness programs.”

Learning Targets:

  • I can explain the Why, What, and How of the Kentucky Leadership Network (KLN).

  • I can identify the 4 major components that form the foundation of the KLN.
