  1. NYS Common Core English Language Arts Grades 9 – 12

  2. What is the vision behind CC… • Common – agreed upon • Core – at the center Skills-based Independent learners Researchers vs Repeaters Visionary Application

  3. …for College and Career Readiness?

  4. The 6 shifts for ELA • Shift 1 Balancing Informational & Literary Text • Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. • Shift 2 Knowledge in the Disciplines • Students build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities • Shift 3 Staircase of Complexity • Students read the central, grade appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are patient, create more time and space and support in the curriculum for close reading. • Shift 4 Text-based Answers • Students engage in rich and rigorous evidence based conversations about text. • Shift 5 Writing from Sources • Writing emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. • Shift 6 Academic Vocabulary • Students constantly build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts.

  5. Balancing Informational and Literary Text • Building Knowledge in the Disciplines • Staircase of Complexity • Text-based Answers • Writing from Sources • Academic Vocabulary

  6. Writing Focus: Three Major Areas Argumentative Informative Narrative

  7. Testing Focus = Skills Focus ELA Regents (old) ELA CC Regents (new) There is no listening section. * Simple listening / note-taking is replaced with text annotating in sections 2 and 3 of the exam. • Part 1 1 Listening passage note-taking skills tested through multiple choice response

  8. ELA Regents (old) ELA CC Regents (new) Part 1 3 Reading Comprehension passages [narrative, informative and a poem] reading for understanding skills tested through multiple choice response *close reading skills are necessary as answers require a synthesis of information from various points within the text • Part 2 2 Reading Comprehension passages [narrative and informative] reading for understanding skills tested through multiple choice response *rereading/skimming of the passage may be required for comprehension

  9. ELA Regents (old) ELA CC Regents (new) Part 3 Text Analysis: Exposition – a comprehensive description and explanation 1 text is provided [literature or informational – all have been historical/speeches to date] This 2-3 paragraph, text-based response requires the student to identify a central idea and analyze how the author’s use of one writing strategy strongly develops that idea. *Text-based evidence must be cited within the essay. • Part 3 2 Passages of varied genre [narrative or informative and poetry] reading for understanding skills tested through mc response and 2 short essay responses requiring the statement of a mutual thesis derived from a given topic and its development through the author’s use of one specific writing strategy

  10. ELA Regents (old) ELA CC Regents (new) Part 3 REPEATED HERE FOR CONVENIENCE Text Analysis: Exposition – a comprehensive description and explanation 1 text is provided [literature or informational – all have been historical/speeches to date] This 2-3 paragraph, text-based response requires the student to identify a central idea and analyze how the author’s use of one writing strategy strongly develops that idea. *Text-based evidence must be cited within the essay. • Part 4 1 Critical Lens (quote) is provided The Critical Lens is the central idea This full-length, 5 paragraph essay requires the student to interpret the quote and use two pieces of grade-appropriate literature to prove the quote true or false. Analysis of the literature requires a synthesized analysis and evaluation of the pieces as they relate to the given quote.

  11. ELA Regents (old) ELA CC Regents (new) Part 2 Writing From Sources – Argument 4 texts of varied genre [informational, scientific, historical, graphically-presented information] Close reading and annotative skills are tested through the writing of a source-based argument, complete with a counter-claim. *Text-based evidence must be cited within the essay. • There is no comparable section.

  12. English Department Response • Professional Development • Innovative Approaches to CC skills development • Text and Evidence Based Claims • Close Reading and Annotation Training • CC Researching Skills • CC Writing for HS • Understanding the New Rubrics • iPads and Smart Boards • Apps in the Classroom • Teaching Summit participation and turn-key training

  13. …continuing • Cross-Curriculum workshops with Social Studies • Academic Vocabulary • Protocols (study aids and technology ideas) • Close Reading • Essay format and strategies • Redesigned Curriculum • NYS CC suggested literature and nonfiction, primary and secondary source materials • Quarterly Benchmark Assessments have been developed to scaffold the new skills smoothly through grade 11 • Grade-level shift-analysis meetings • Grade 12 courses emphasize these skills to enhance College and Career Readiness
