  15. Session Outcomes Participants will: • Identify and describe the major transitions that must occur in order to experience successful implementation of Common Core State Standards (CCSS), • Identify a major learning goal for a specific course and integrate CCSS Literacy standards, Mathematical Practices, and applicable benchmarks from other content areas by “chunking” the standards/benchmarks into big ideas, • Understand how the Literacy Standards and Mathematical Practices in the content areas assist students with depth of understanding of important concepts, • Participate in a Comprehension Instructional Sequence (CIS) template/lesson from a student perspective.

  16. Pre-Assessing the Common Core Think-Pair-Share “What are the Common Core Standards? How will they affect science instruction in the classroom?”

  17. What are the CCSS? Consist of the English Language Arts Standards, Mathematics Standards, and Literacy Standards for History, Science and Technical Subjects The CCSS: • Are aligned with college and work 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 other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and • Are evidence-based. • Are state led and coordinated by NGA and CCSSO, • Are internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society, and • Define the vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century.

  18. The Need: Why Develop the CCSS? • Preparation: Prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in postsecondary endeavors , including the use and application of technology to demonstrate learning • Competition: Ensure our students are globally competitive through the emphasis of application, integration, critical thinking, and problem solving • Equity: Set consistent expectations for all--and not dependent on a student’s zip code • Collaboration: Create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise

  22. An Integrated System – at All Levels

  23. Florida’s State Board of EducationStrategic PlanApproved October 2012 Strategic Goals Section 1008.31, Florida Statute, establishes four goals for Florida’s education system. Each of these goals will be measured through the accountability system and progress will be documented through the performance indicators included in this Strategic Plan. Highest Student Achievement Seamless Articulation and Maximum Access Skilled Workforce and Economic Development Quality Efficient Services http://www.fldoe.org/strategic_plan/

  24. How are the CCSS coded? • Subject • Grade range • Number order of objective

  27. Common Core Way of Work Florida Transitions toCommon Core State Standards Current Way of Work Standards-based instruction Instructional Materials and Test item specifications guide development of curriculum maps FOCUS mini-assessments aligned to individual benchmarks are used to monitor student progress Teaching benchmarks in isolation results in long lists of tasks to master Standards-based instruction facilitated by learning goals Big ideas and learning goals guide the development of curriculum maps Learning progressions or scales describe expectations for student progress in attaining the learning goals Assessments used to monitor student progressare aligned directly to the learning progressions or scales Teaching big ideas narrows the focus and allows students to delve deeper for a greater depth of understanding

  28. Common Core Curriculum Changes in Florida • New Standards/Benchmarks for ALLEnglishLanguage Arts and Mathematics courses – ALL grade levels • Inclusion of applicable Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History, Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects (all other courses) and the Mathematical Practices • Implementation Timeline  

  29. Present: Standards-Based Instruction • Standards-based instruction is a process for planning, delivering, monitoring and improving academic programs in which clearly defined academic content standards provide the basis for content in instruction and assessment. • Standards help ensure students learn what is important. • Student learning is the focus. • Setting standards for academic proficiency is a state level task. • Districts develop local curriculum to provide students access to the state approved standards in appropriate contexts. • School site educators engage students in meeting the standards through standards based instruction.

  30. Comprehension instructional sequence The New “Look and Feel” of Instruction with Common Core

  31. Activate Prior Knowledge! Handout • Hook Question: What are ethics and why should ethics be considered when making decisions? • Predictive Written Response to Complex Text-Based Question: What are some positive and negative consequences of research in the field of biotechnology and medicine? • Vocabulary Front-Loading • Text Marking (Reading #1): • An active reading strategy that helps students focus and isolate essential information in a text, improving their comprehension and retention of reading material. • Directed Note-Taking (Reading #2) • First draft written response to essential question

  32. Vocabulary Front-loading Independently, identify/highlight/underline words that are unfamiliar to you.

  33. Vocabulary Front-loading Vocabulary Instruction • Direct students to locate words introduced in the text by paragraph number. • Model for students how to derive word meaning(s) from word parts (prefix, root, suffix) and/or context. • Record meanings of word parts and words on word wall, journal, etc.

  34. P – this section of text shows a positive impact of biotechnology on society or the individual N – this section of text shows a negative impact of biotechnology on society or the individual D – this section of text shows a scientific discovery Text Marking P P N D D D P

  35. Handout Directed Note-Taking • Present a guiding question to direct student thinking while taking notes. Teacher models note-taking with some examples from the text, and selects the category or categories that the statement supports. Students complete note-taking collaboratively or independently. X X X X X X

  36. Directed Note-Taking Handout

  37. In small groups, take positions and discuss which factor is most significant/impactful (based on the text), and come to consensus. • Count number of groups that selected each category. • Count number of individuals that selected each category. • 3) After hearing discussion and text-based evidence, did you change your mind? New independent vote! (Modification - Four Corners)

  38. Question Generation Purpose: To provide students with a demonstration of question generation and the opportunity for them to interact with the text by generating questions to further deepen their comprehension. • Generate questions unanswered from your first text reading. Record your questions on your Student Question Generation paper as you work in pairs or small groups. In your groups, select one question and place on grid at front of room in appropriate category.

  39. Final Response After Rereading and Extended Text Discussion • Purpose: To provide opportunities for students to interact with the text and with their peers to: • identify text information most significant to the final/essential question. • facilitate complex thinking and deep comprehension of text. After the final discussion, answer the following question on your handout: According to the text and extended text discussion, which factor is most likely the primary concern for scientists when conducting scientific research? How does ethics play a role in scientific research?

  40. Debrief Lesson Course Requirements and Standards “Chunks” or Big Ideas • The student evaluates the impact of biotechnology on the individual, society and the environment, including medical and ethical issues. • Evaluate advances in biotechnology that impact agriculture (Agriscience) • Identify common diseases and disorders of each body system including etiology, prevention, pathology, diagnosis and treatment/rehabilitation (Health Science). • Describe cell structure and function in diseased and healthy tissues (Health Science).
