goals
Goals
  • Define Standards Aligned Systems, identify its purpose, and understand all segments of the system
  • Investigate the relationship between the PA standards and assessment anchors to the Big Ideas, Concepts, and Competencies
  • Explore the Big Ideas in math to search for links within curriculum and instruction
  • Develop an action plan to provide all information back to school/district staff

What SAS is – What SAS is NOT

sas overview
SAS Overview

The Pennsylvania Standards Aligned

Systems (SAS) is a collaborative product

of research and good practice that

identifies six distinct elements which, if

utilized together, will provide schools and

districts a common framework for continuous

school and district enhancement and

improvement.

sas 6 circles explained
SAS 6 Circles - Explained
  • Clear Standards Clear, high standards that establish what all students need to know and be able to accomplish.
  • Fair Assessments Fair assessments aligned to the standards.
  • Curriculum FrameworkA framework specifying Big Ideas, Concepts, and Competencies in each subject area/at each grade level.
  • Instruction Aligned instruction--aligning instruction with standards involves identifying strategies that are best suited to help students achieve the expected performance.
  • Materials & Resources Materials that address the standards.
  • Interventions A safety net/intervention system that insures all students meet standards

why do we need a standards aligned system in pennsylvania
Why do we need a Standards -Aligned System in Pennsylvania?
  • To support districts with Curriculum, Assessment, Instruction
  • To provide Professional Development
  • To promote an ongoing learning community
  • To help all students to meet and when possible, exceed the PA Academic Standards
does this mean a curriculum
Does this mean a curriculum?
  • NO intention of producing a mandated

state-wide curriculum.

  • Some districts may benefit from a “complete” voluntary model curriculum.
  • Others will need curricular and instructional focused inquiries.
history of sas
History of SAS
  • Standards Aligned System began in the fall of 2006.
  • Big Ideas were written for mathematics and aligned with the standards. Concepts and competencies were developed based on the Big Ideas.
history of sas1
History of SAS
  • Essential questions, exemplars, and vocabulary were written to supplement the Big Ideas, concepts, and competencies.
  • Three math teams – core team, development team, and review team - were created to enhance the math work.
current sas work
Current SAS Work
  • Teams in Literacy, Science, and Social Studies were created with volunteers from across the state to write the Big Ideas, Concepts, and Competencies.
  • The math team is currently revisiting the Big Ideas, Concepts, and Competencies
  • Items on Ed Hub (PDE website) in Social Studies are being revised
current sas work1
Current SAS Work
  • Big Ideas, Concepts, and Competencies will be written/revised in the four areas by July 1, 2008 to be utilized at the Governor’s Institute July 13-18, 2008.
  • If GCA’s come to fruition, the competencies developed by educators in Pennsylvania will be used to create the GCA’s.
current sas work2
Current SAS Work
  • Education Hub for SAS is being revised to include information in the four content areas.

Ed Hub will continue to use the six segments to design the Pennsylvania Standards-Aligned System.

  • Big Ideas – A declarative statement of enduring understandings, for all students at each grade level/course.
  • Concepts – What students should know.
  • Competencies – What students should be able to do.

what are the big ideas
What are the Big Ideas?
  • A set of declarative statements of enduring understandings for all students at all grade/course levels.
  • These statements have motivated sets of related ideas, concepts, skills and procedures that form the foundation of understanding, permanent learning and success at higher mathematics.
