Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative

October 19 and 20th


Today s targets
Today’s Targets

  • I can identify the 3 modes of writing for ALL content areas and recognize the connection to assessment.

  • I can identify the sub-domains of the KY DRAFT INSTRUCTIONAL Writing Rubric and distinguish the differences in language across the modes.

  • I can recognize instruction that makes the connection among the standards: LDC.

  • I can explain the format and procedure of a FAL.

  • I can compare problem solving and content FALs.

  • I can plan for ways to support MTL as they implement FALs.


Today s targets continued
Today’s Targets (continued)

  • I can differentiate between the traditional process of teacher/principal growth and evaluation and the new vision for teacher/principal effectiveness.

  • I can discuss the Teacher/Principal Effectiveness Frameworks and identify proposed multiple measures that could become a part of the process.

  • I can relate CHETL to the Teacher/Principal Effectiveness Framework.

Kcas writing modes of discourse
KCAS Writing Modes of Discourse

  • Informative/Explanatory

  • Opinion (K-5)/Argumentative (6-12)

  • Narrative (Not Personal Narrative!!)

    Modes may be applied in a variety of forms,

    and instruction should not limit choices

    based on anticipated test formats.


Writing standard 1
Writing Standard #1

Anchor Standard: W.CCR.1

Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and

relevant and sufficient evidence.

K-12 Progressions

From templates task to teaching task
From opinion/persuasion to argumentation…Templates Task to Teaching Task

Teachers fill in the template task to create a teaching task, meaning a major student assignment to be completed over two to four weeks.

The content can be science, history, language arts, or another subject.

The template task becomes a teaching task when a teacher adds the text to be read (content) an essential question and a writing assignment.

  • The main sections are argumentation, information/explanation, and narrative (matching Common Core’s three kinds/modes of writing)

  • The template tasks start either with an essential question or with “after researching)

  • They include templates for definition, description, procedural-sequential writing, synthesis, analysis, comparison, evaluation, problem-solution, and cause-effect

Connecting effective instructional practices to assessment
Connecting Effective Instructional Practices to Assessment opinion/persuasion to argumentation…

Constructed response, as defined in Senate Bill 1, is a general term that describes any type of item where students must develop or build a response to a question or prompt:

  • Fill in the Blank

  • Short Answer

  • Extended Answer (Response)

  • Open Response

  • On-Demand


On demand writing assessment purposes
“On-Demand” Writing Assessment Purposes opinion/persuasion to argumentation…

  • To provide students the opportunity to demonstrate independently the communication skills they have developed through instruction

  • To reflect authentic reading and writing —understanding the role reading plays in the development of writing without testing reading ability

  • To use source material to promote authentic content in writing

  • To reflect the type of writing required for college/job readiness, reflected in the CCSS (KCAS)


Where does od writing appear in the standards
Where does OD Writing opinion/persuasion to argumentation…appear in the Standards?

Range of Writing—CCR

10. Write routinely over extended time frames

(time for research, reflection, and revision)

and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a

day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and

audiences.

KY Field Testing Process opinion/persuasion to argumentation…and Timeline OD Writing

This fall, selected districts will be field testing OD prompts

Feedback from the field tests will inform decisions about the rubric, time limits, etc. for the spring assessment


Od assessment information
OD Assessment Information opinion/persuasion to argumentation…

  • OD Assessments will be administered in late spring, Grades 5, 6, 8, 10, 11

  • All tested students will respond to 2 prompts in 2 testing sessions—1 passage-based and 1 direct (which may also include short texts or a writing situation)

  • Language Mechanics will be assessed in grades 4 and 6 with MC only. In HS, the PLAN will count as the Editing and Mechanics assessment


Writing dispositions and habits of mind
Writing Dispositions and Habits of Mind opinion/persuasion to argumentation…

Writing dispositions/ habits of mind (the ways that writers approach writing in ALL content areas) include:

  • engagement through making connections among ideas;

  • persistence to grapple with challenging ideas and texts;

  • responsibility to incorporate ideas of others, giving proper attribution;

  • flexibility of approaches and styles to match purpose; and

  • utilizing metacognitive skills to reflect on their development as writers.

Teaching writing skills without testing drills example
Teaching Writing Skills Without Testing Drills Example opinion/persuasion to argumentation…

Do presidential policies really make a difference in

the lives of Americans? After reading primary and

secondary sources, write an essay that compares

John F. Kennedy’s New Frontier social policies with

Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society social policies and

argue which had a more significant impact on

Americans. Be sure to support your position with

evidence from the texts.

Key points from video

Differentiated instruction also is things like how you group students and the kinds of questions you ask to facilitate their learning.

Key points from video

We’re crystal clear on the targets we’re teaching to.

Quality instruction is asking the right questions at the right time.

We are under constant gentle pressure relentlessly applied to keep pushing people forward to student engagement.

Rigor is challenging students where ever they’re at.

Students are truly engaged. They can tell you haw and what they are learning.

There are real conversations between the teacher and the students.

Rigor is not being able to find an answer right away, but being able to put together an answer from what ever they’re working with.

Students have to learn to trust each other.

Kentucky commitments
Kentucky Commitments and support them as they implement FALs?

Change how teachers and administrators are evaluated.

Change how they are supported to:

  • Continuously improve their professional practice;

  • Enhance their effectiveness; and

  • Drive increasingly high levels of student achievement.

“We’ve never had a meaningful evaluation system that identifies the dimensions of great teachers so we can transfer the skills to others.”

Key predictors of how much kids will learn:

  • Does the teacher use class time well?

  • When students are confused, does the teacher help get them straightened out?

  • We are on target with the timelines for our work.

  • Teacher and Principal Effectiveness Steering Committee(s) representing KASA, KSBA, KEA, JCTA, CPE, colleges and universities, EPSB, parents, and individual teachers, principals and superintendents from volunteer districts have been convened and met quarterly over the past year.

  • To identify the characteristics of good teaching and leadership practice, the committees and volunteer districts were provided with previously developed rubrics of teacher/leader effectiveness as a beginning point for discussion (teacher rubric – KDE work with Wallace Foundation, principal rubric – designed by a subgroup of principal steering committee)
