Before we begin about you

Before we begin…About You

  • We’d like to know a little about who is out there.

  • Time for a poll (one more time…)

Washington s state learning goals are the foundation hb 1209 rcw 28a 150 210

Washington’s State Learning Goals are the Foundation (HB 1209+; RCW 28A.150.210)

Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with a variety of audiences;

Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; arts; and health and fitness;

Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and

Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities.

  • Demonstrate independence

  • Build strong content knowledge

  • Respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline

  • Comprehend as well as critique

  • Value evidence

  • Use technology strategically and capably

  • Come to understand other perspectives and cultures

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Three shifts in english language arts

Three Shifts in English Language Arts

  • Building content knowledge through content-rich nonfiction

  • Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational

  • Regular practice with complex text and its academic language

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Shift one building content knowledge through content rich nonfiction

Shift One: Building content knowledge throughcontent-rich nonfiction

  • Provides an ideal context for building language, vocabulary, knowledge, and reasoning

  • Is challenging, complex, and has deep comprehension-building potential

  • Is an opportunity for students to learn how to engage, interact, and have “conversations” with the text in ways that prepare them for the type of experiences they will encounter in college and careers.

Shift Two: Reading, writing, and speakinggrounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational

Moving from “how do you feel about

what you just read? Do you like it?”

to

“Identify three examples that let you

know what the author’s purpose is.

Do you agree with the author?”

Careful, targeted scaffolding of text complexity

Focus on appropriately rigorous texts

Strategic teaching of Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary with authentic application of new words and terms


Critical thinking tangling with concepts and building knowledge

Critical thinking= tangling with concepts and building knowledge

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Where can we start where should we

Where can we start? Where should we?

  • Provide rich, relevant, rigorous texts for all students…

  • … in all content areas! Students need to read and work with full texts in all their content areas, not just English Language Arts.

  • Support building and enhancing literacy skills with reading and writing strategies.

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Text complexity getting started with the what

Text Complexity: Getting Started with the “What”

Best measured by computer software

Best measured by an attentive human reader

Best made by educators employing their professional judgment

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


A comprehensive collaborative approach is key

A comprehensive, collaborative approach is key:

  • Work with cross-content as well as grade band teams to consider students’ access to rich, relevant texts of different lengths

  • Use the Text Complexity Tools to identify how students are experiencing and working with texts. What kinds of tasks in reading? In writing? In Speaking?

What kids read is important

Whatkids read is important

  • Yes, provide at-level text

  • Yes, provide access to the actual grade level text

  • YES, open the door to what’s next

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


The how text dependent questions

The how: Text-dependent questions

What can you infer from King’s letter about the letter that he received?

“The Gettysburg Address” mentions the year 1776. According to Lincoln’s speech, why is this year significant to the events described in the speech?

  • In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King discusses nonviolent protest. Discuss, in writing, a time when you wanted to fight against something that you felt was unfair.

  • In “The Gettysburg Address” Lincoln says the nation is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Why is equality an important value to promote?

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Academic vocabulary access to the content and building critical thinking

Academic Vocabulary = Access to the content and building critical thinking

  • perception: 

  • Sahel:  Means ‘coastline’ in Arabic.  The dry area of land located on the southern edge of the Sahara desert.

  • savanna: 

  • sub-Saharan: . 

  • indigenous:   

  • migration: 

  • How can we teach/organize these important content words for the best impact on student learning?

What can you do in your classroom

What can you do in your classroom?

  • Curate materials; work with your librarian

  • Read and consider text complexity

  • Read and rethink vocabulary lessons, K12

  • Share and collaborate vocabulary teaching with cross-content and cross-grade level teams

  • Identify rich writing, speaking, and technology work

  • Work with your specialists (ELL, Special Education, literacy, etc.) and grapple together with access and support

  • Consider organized abandonment in favor of comprehensive, deeper learning opportunities

A look at assessment

A Look at Assessment

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13


Ccss assessment system transitions

CCSS Assessment System Transitions

  • Our change to Common Core is at the heart of assessment changes for ELA and Math

  • NCLB requires states to assess state standards

    • We’ve changed standards so we need to change assessments

      • What we change to is our choice

      • Smarter Balanced is where we are headed for ELA and Math

        • IMPT: There are currently no assessment consortia established for Science

    • Graduation requirements are a state’s choice

      • Supt Dorn is proposing reduced graduation requirements

  • ESEA Waiver changes expectation that all students are proficient next year (2014) – it gives us more time and more individualized school-based goals

OSPI_CCSS.ELA_Part4_5.30.13

…each instructional module will:

  • Start by identifying the learning targets for the lesson, which align with the CCSS in ELA or Math.

  • Begin lesson with a formative pre-assessment to determine the level of knowledge students have about the learning target. (ASSESS)

  • Use formative assessment data/information to plan the lesson so that the teacher knows individual students’ needs related to the learning targets. (PLAN)

  • Provide examples of instruction that can teach the learning target and also meet the needs of diverse learners.(TEACH)

  • Conclude the lesson with a formative post- assessment whose data will determine the plan for the next lesson (ASSESS)

  • Contain embedded links to the Digital Library resources, Assessment Literacy modules and glossary, and additional resources as available.

Our guiding beliefs and approach for ccss implementation in wa

Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCSS Implementation in WA

2-Prongs:

  • The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators)

    • Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build for CCSS; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content.

  • The How: System “Remodeling”

    • Belief that successful CCSS implementation will not take place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…”

    • Belief that districts across the state have the conditions and commitment present to engage wholly in this work.

    • Professional learning systems are critical
