objectives
Objectives
  • Learn about the Common Core Standards
  • Compare the current depth of teaching (rigor) and learning occurring within the Albuquerque Public Schools with the new standards and identify goals for reading and writing in CTE
  • Create templates for increasing literacy through the Literacy Development Coalition model

A Quick Time on Standards Analysis

essential questions
Essential Questions
  • What is rigor?
  • How can we measure, monitor and encourage rigor at the school-wide and classroom levels?
  • What are the Common Core Standards?

Deborah Bass, SREB

the world is flat
The World Is Flat

“Our nation is doomed if we do not deliver a rigorous and relevant education to every American child.”

~Thomas Friedman

what is rigor
What is rigor?

“Rigor is the goal of helping students develop the capacity to understand content that is complex, ambiguous, provocative, and personally or emotionally challenging.”

Harvey F. Silver, Richard W. Strong,

and Matthew J. Perini

essential question 2
Essential Question #2:

How can we increase the number of students who are career and college ready?

cte real world readiness
CTE -- Real World Readiness

Table Discussion:

  • How do you address college and career readiness in your classroom?
    • What strategies do you use to insure your students are prepared for life after high school?
    • What community resources do you utilize to ensure your students are ready?
    • What district resources are available for your use to insure high-quality, up-to-date instruction and instructional resources?
    • What resources are available to you at the school level to insure high-quality, up-to-date instruction is occurring?
essential question 3
Essential Question #3:

What are the Common Core State Standards?

example ccs writing 9 10 7

Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question

(including a self-generated question) or solve a problem;

narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate;

synthesizemultiple sources on the subject,

demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.

Example: CCS Writing 9-10.7
what is the common core state standards initiative
What is the Common Core State Standards Initiative?
  • Effort to establish set of K–12 academic content standards in English and math for multiple states to adopt.
  • Content standards are expectations of what students should know and be able to do.
  • If a state adopts CCSS, it is expected to adopt them verbatim.
  • CCSS must comprise at least 85% of a state's standards in English and math.

Deborah Bass, SREB – following slides

slide13

Who Is Involved with the CCSS Initiative?National Governors AssociationCouncil of Chief State Schools OfficersScores of curriculum specialists and content experts from all over the country (and a few people from other countries) to work on the standards. Supported by grants from foundationsFunds from the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices. List of specific sources of funding for this initiative is not yet available from the Common Core State Standards Initiative website.

what problem does ccss aim to solve
What Problem Does CCSS Aim to Solve?
  • Some see the current variety of content standards among states as a "crazy patchwork," with many states having learning expectations that lack rigor, specificity, and focus.
  • Supporters see the CCSS as an opportunity for states to establish a common set of rich, challenging, specific, high-priority learning expectations.
  • The intent is to create education systems throughout the country that will help all students graduate from high school ready for college or a career and make the United States more competitive in the global economy.
what problem does it try to solve
What problem does it try to solve?
  • Proponents acknowledge that standards alone will not accomplish that goal. They hope the new standards will form a basis for states to build systems of aligned curriculum, assessments, teacher training and preparation, and teacher and student supports.
  • Skeptics believe that consensus around what content to include is difficult.
  • Some question the wisdom of standardization when students vary widely in needs, goals, and abilities.

Content with Rigor and Challenge…

  • Literacy

All students should…

  • Read and study 8-10 books per year as a part of the language arts curriculum
  • Complete a research paper yearly in grades 6-12
  • Write one page or more weekly in all classes
  • Leave 8th grade ready for college prep English
  • Leave 12th grade ready for college and careers
  • Oral presentations in classes at least each semester

Eleanor Dougherty, LDC (following slides)

slide19

Brainstorm!

  • How can we emphasize weekly technical reading?
slide20

…and

  • How can we increase weekly technical writing?
slide21

…and

  • How can we increase reading and writing through technical research papers?
slide22

…and

How can we increase professional oral presentations?

how can we help support the ccss

GAIN UNDERSTANDING OF CCSS Literacy

Create high quality tasks – SPEND TIME ON READING AND WRITING

Share expertise

Create professional learning communities across grades, disciplines, and borders

How can we help support the CCSS?
ccs ri e 9 10 1

Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions.

CCS RI/E 9-10.1
ccs sci tech standards 11 12 4

Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 11–12 texts and topics.

CCS Sci/Tech Standards 11-12.4
