Student Achievement



f scott fitzgerald once said
F. Scott Fitzgerald once said…

“The test of a first-rate intelligence is

the ability to hold two opposed ideas

in the mind at the same time,

and still retain the ability to function.”

“Views decisions as being made betweenseemingly contradictory choices… it pushes people to believe things must be either A or B, but not both.”

In business:

“You can have change or stability.”

“You can either be conservative or bold.”

“You can either have low cost or high quality.”

“You can either invest in the future or do well in the short-term.”

ccss 3 shifts in ela literacy
CCSS: 3 Shifts in ELA/Literacy

1. Building knowledge through content-richnonfiction

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

3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic language

The principal has just proposed that we cancel field day to provide more time for test preparation.

Write a letter expressing your position on the proposal.

Use facts, examples and other evidence to support your opinion.

The CCSS: 3 Shifts in Mathematics

1. Focus strongly where the standards focus.

2. Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics.

3. Rigor: In major topics, pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency,andapplication.

shift 3 rigor
Shift #3: Rigor

The CCSS require a balance of:

  • Solid conceptual understanding
  • Procedural skill and fluency
  • Application of skills in problem solving situations

Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources.

the answer is the questions
The Answer IS the Questions

“The level of mastery that will be reached is determined entirely by what sort of questions students are expected to answer.”

- Paul Bambrick-Santoyo

standards instruction and assessment
Standards, Instruction AND Assessment

PARCC is designed to reward

quality instruction aligned to the Standards,

so the assessment is worthy of preparation

rather than a distraction from good work.

What kind of instruction is rewarded by local assessments?

how are local assessments developed

PARCC utilizes Evidence-Centered Design

mathematical practices
Mathematical Practices

Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

Model with mathematics.

Use appropriate tools strategically.

Attend to precision.

Look for and make sense of structure.

Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

on their own
“On Their Own”

“Students can, without significant scaffolding, comprehend and evaluate complex texts across a range of types of disciplines, and they can construct effective arguments and convey intricate or multifaceted information. Likewise, students are able independently to discern a speaker’s key points, request clarification, and ask relevant questions.”

- Common Core ELA Standards

the ccss support critical citizenship
The CCSS support Critical Citizenship

“The adoption of the Common Core suggests that America’s image of what it means to be educated will change. The Common Core document asks us to bring up a generation of young people who listen to or read a claim and ask,

Who is making this claim?

What is that person’s evidence?

What other positions are being promulgated?

How can I compare and contrast these different views, think about the biases and assumptions behind them, weigh their warrants, and come to an evidence-based, well-reasoned stance?”

“New Jersey has already proven itself as a national leader in providing its students with science standards consistent with the research that informed the Framework for K-12 Science Education in its previous standards. The adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards is a natural next step in that tradition of leadership and excellence.”

Bruce Alberts, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, University of California, San Francisco; Past President, National Academy of Sciences

“A focus on these practices, rather than on content alone, leads to a deep, sustained learning of the skills needed to be a successful adult, regardless of career choice.”

Jonathan Osborne, Ph.D., Professor, Stanford University, PISA Science Framework Director, Science Education Researcher

“The Next Generation Science Standards represent a quantum leap in our idea of what it means to teach science. By placing an emphasis on the teaching of practice and content, they offer a better conception of what matters in science and what is worth learning.  This is an exciting vision which should be challenging, rigorous and engaging for students.”
