    47. Four Parts of a Performance Standard

    48. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Sample Task Grade 7: It Was Midsummer Writing Sample Task - Using narrative strategies the student writes about a particular event that is meaningful or significant in the students life.

    49. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Narrative Writing Standard ELA7W2 The student demonstrates competence in a variety of genres: The student produces a narrative (fictional, personal, experimental) that: a. Engages readers by establishing and developing a plot, setting, and point of view that are appropriate to the story (e.g., varied beginnings, standard plot line, cohesive devices, and sharpened focus). b. Creates an organizing structure appropriate to purposes, audience, and context. c. Develops complex major and minor characters using standard methods of characterization. d. Includes sensory details and concrete language to develop plot, setting, and character (e.g., vivid verbs, descriptive adjectives, and varied sentence structures). e. Excludes extraneous details and inconsistencies. f. Uses a range of strategies (e.g., suspense, figurative language, dialogue, expanded vocabulary, flashback, movement, gestures, and expressions, tone, and mood). g. Provides a sense of closure to the writing.

    50. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Student Work Analysis: Find the Elements Read the Writing Standards provided. Note the elements of the performance standard are identified using lower case letters. Using the writing sample, identify the parts of the student work that meet the elements of the Narrative Standard. Underline the part of the student work that meet a specific element of the standard and label each part by using the lower case letters correlated to elements.

    51. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Think-Pair-Share How did the process of locating elements in student work help you understand whether or not the work met standard? How does this help you define expectations for student work? How does the standard help teachers define and communicate whether a piece of student work does not meet standard, meets standard, or exceeds standard?

    52. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Commentary It Was Midsummer meets the standard for 7th grade narrative writing by describing the authors experience at her first big horse show. The organizing structure for the piece is the chronological timeline of the horse show weekend. The story progresses logically from beginning to end, and the writer uses transitional devices to guide the reader through the story. She uses phrases such as, I woke up the next morning and After the seven jump course to show time transitions. The writer develops character by explaining her excitement and her frustration throughout the weekend. She includes sensory details to give the writer a sense of the atmosphere at the horse show (Everything seemed so fresh. I could smell the pine trees, and the newly cut grass and It was ninety degrees out but it felt like twenty).

    53. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Commentary (continued) For the most part, the writer excludes extraneous details. In some places she could provide more detail. For instance, the writer uses vocabulary specific to horse shows such as refusals and leads but she does not explain the meaning of those terms. Neither does she provide enough context for the reader to infer meaning. The writer uses dialogue to help the storys progress and to communicate a sense of the shows atmosphere (Walk please, all walk, the judge announces to the other riders around me.) The final sentence provides the story with a sense of closure and conveys the message of the piece (It was one of the best days of my life, and a little advise [advice] can really go a long way.)

    54. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Comparison of Georgia Performance Standards to QCC 4th Grade QCC Reads for a variety of purposes in different kinds of texts. 4th Grade GPS The student demonstrates comprehension and shows evidence of a warranted and responsible explanation of a variety of literary and informational texts. The texts are of the quality and complexity illustrated by the Grade Four reading list.

    55. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Differentiated Instruction 4th Grade Writing Sample Task - Using narrative strategies the student writes about a particular event that is meaningful or significant in the students life. Sample Task for Differentiated Instruction Next Slide

    56. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. ELA4W2 A Georgia Performance Standard for fourth grade writing A sample differentiated task for this standard is: The student writes a report on a topic of personal interest by using a graphic organizer to relate personal knowledge and information gathered from research (encyclopedia, Internet, interviews, etc.) This task includes a conference between student and teacher to guide academic content such as scientific, mathematical, and/or social studies concepts.

    57. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. ELA6W2 A Georgia Performance Standard for sixth grade writing A sample differentiated task for this standard is: The student reads several books and writes a review that describes the authors style and purpose for others by orally dictating the information to a scribe. The review offers a recommendation for or against the author, and the student provides evidence to support his/her recommendation.

    58. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Think-Pair-Share How did the performance standard and commentary assist you in evaluating the same piece of writing?

    59. Lets Play Jeopardy!!!

    60. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Standards-Based Vocabulary STANDARDS-BASED EDUCATION: In standards-based classrooms, standards are the starting point for classroom instruction that ensures high expectations for all students. CURRICULUM DOCUMENT: The Georgia Performance Standards document is the curriculum document that contains all standards that should be learned by all students. STRAND: A strand is an organizing tool used to group standards by content. For example, the English language arts curriculum contains strands of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing. K-5 science curriculum contains a life science strand, physical science strand, and an earth/space strand. STANDARD: Something set up and established by authority as a rule for the measure of quantity, weight, extent, value, or quality.

    61. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Standards-Based Vocabulary PERFORMANCE STANDARDS: Performance standards define specific expectations of what students should know and be able to do and how well students must perform to achieve or exceed the standard. Georgias performance standards are composed of four components: content standards, tasks, student work, and teacher commentary. CONTENT STANDARDS: Content standards state the purpose and direction the content is to take, and are generally followed by elements. Content standards define what students are expected to know, understand, and be able to do. PROCESS STANDARDS: Process standards define the means used to develop patterns of thought and behavior that lead to conceptual understanding.

    62. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Standards-Based Vocabulary ELEMENTS: Elements are part of the content standards that identify specific learning goals associated with the standard. TASKS: Keyed to the relevant standards, tasks provide a sample performance that demonstrates to teachers what students should know and be able to do during or by the end of the course. Some tasks can serve as activities that will help students achieve the learning goals of the standard, while others can be used to assess student learning; many serve both purposes. Although the Georgia Performance Standards include tasks, teachers may develop their own tasks.

    63. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Standards-Based Vocabulary STUDENT WORK: Examples of successful student work are included to specify what it takes to meet the standard and to enable both teachers and students to see what meeting the standard looks like. TEACHER COMMENTARY: Teacher commentary is meant to open the pathways of communication between students and the classroom teacher as well as within faculty in order to ensure consistency within assessment and expectations. Commentary shows students why they did or did not meet a standard and enables them to take ownership of their own learning.

    64. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Vocabulary Activity Defining Our Terms First, individual staff members should create that own definitions of each of the following terms related to the field of standards-based education. Then, each staff member should pair up with a partner to explore how they agree or disagree about the meaning of each term. Finally, at the conclusion of this activity, the definitions provided by the Georgia Department of Education should be shared and discussed.

    70. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Professional Learning Plan District and school leaders can do a number of things to help make the change to standards-based education easier for teachers. Support teachers by clearly communicating the changes that standards-based education will entail Pace the progress of reform (note phase-in and implementation plan) Provide structures and opportunities for teachers to learn the knowledge and skills to implement standards Align other aspects of the system (e.g., time, technology, and teacher evaluation) with the goals of standards-based education Assist with support of struggling students, and Help to make needed resources available

    71. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Professional Learning Plan Teacher collaboration is the key to success. It is important for teachers to work together to: understand what standards require of students design lessons to teach standards, and develop assessments to determine if students are meeting standards.

    72. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Professional Learning Plan Professional Learning Plan should be coherent and comprehensive and include or make provisions for: structures (e.g., grade-level teams, curriculum task forces, study groups, departments) for learning resources (e.g., time and materials) needed formal and informal learning opportunities (formal professional development sets the stage, it is through informal personal exchanges that new ideas take root and become part of daily practice professional learning communities) focus on day-to-day classroom work (What lesson plans will help students reach proficiency? How will I know each student has become proficient? How will I document student achievement?)

    73. Georgia will lead the nation in improving student achievement. Professional Learning Plan Learning Outcomes Who (audience and personnel), When (time), Where (space), How ($, materials) Learning Activities Goals of the revision, our rationale, our beliefs and what Georgia values Phase-In and Implementation Plan 4 Parts of a Performance Standard Standards- Based Vocabulary Comment and Review
