The organization embraces high levels of learning for ALL as both the reason the organization exists and the fundamental responsibility of those who work within it.

In a PLC, collaboration represents a systematic process by which members work together interdependently to impact practice in ways that lead to better results for the organization.

3 Big Ideas of PLCs

Members of a PLC realize that all of their efforts must be assessed on the basis of results rather than intentions. This focus on results leads the organization to develop and pursue measurable improvement goals.

Pick me – Pick me!
  • Educators who are given no strategies for managing the volume of standards must, on their own, “pick and choose” the ones they believe will most benefit their students.
  • Without a strategy in place, there will be inconsistencies as to which standards are emphasized.

power standards safety net
Power Standards = Safety Net
  • Power standards represent the “safety net” of standards that all teachers must teach and all students must learn prior to leaving their current grade/class.

The Safety Net – (Power Standards)

Cricket FL Kidwell, Ed.D. Trinity County Office of Education

power standards
Power Standards
  • Teachers are not relieved of the responsibility for teaching all standards and indicators.
  • Power standards do identify which standards are crucial for student success and which ones can be given less emphasis.
  • By default, if Power Standards are not identified, teachers do select their own essential learnings.

Cricket FL Kidwell, Ed.D. Trinity County Office of Education

prioritization not elimination
Prioritization, Not Elimination
  • All standards are not equal in importance.
  • Narrow the standards by determining the “essentials” from the “nice to know”.
  • Teach the “nice to know” in the context of the “essentials”.

guiding questions for identification
Guiding Questions for Identification
  • What essential understandings/skills do our students need?
  • Which standards or indicators can be clustered or incorporated into others?
  • What do students need for success – in school, in life, on state assessments?

  • Endurance
  • Leverage
  • Readiness for next level of learning

How to decide?
  • 1. Endurance – Will this standard or indicator provide students with the knowledge and skills that will be of value beyond a single test date?

  • 2. Leverage –
    • Will this standard or indicator provide knowledge and skills that will be of value in multiple disciplines?

how to create the safety net
How to create the “Safety Net”

1. Gather your data

  • CST strand scores a good start!

2. Check the CST Blueprints

  • strand percentages and number of items

3. Review the standards considering

  • Endurance, Leverage, Readiness

4. Choose Power Standards from each cluster area

5. Have a vertical alignment conversation with team/other grade spans

6. Connect Power Standards to the curriculum.

  • What curricular resources?
  • Where (pages, unit of study)?
  • When will it be taught?

step 1 identifying essential standards or learning
STEP 1: Identifying ‘Essential Standards’ or Learning

STEP 1: Grade-level or content-alike teams use Reeves’ criteria to indicate ‘Essential Standards’ for their assigned grade level(s):

  • Criteria:
  • Readiness
  • Endurance
  • Leverage

Mark an ‘X’ in the column to the left of each essential standard for your grade level.

STEP 2: “First draft Essential Standards” are plotted on Learning Progression Chart for articulation agreements.
  • Side-by-side articulation across grade spans:
  • K-2
  • 3-5
  • 6-8
  • 9-12

step 3 articulation feedback loop
STEP 3: Articulation Feedback Loop

Use Post-it notes to leave messages to our colleagues, as we use this ELA 8th grade standard to critique the journey:

R. 2.7: Evaluate the unity, coherence, logic, internal consistency, and structural patterns of text.

What about…

Rotations:

K-2: 6-8, 3-5, K-2

3-5: K-2, 6-8, 3,5

6-8: 3-5, K-2, 6-8

At final rotation, adjust selected essential standards based on feedback from colleagues.

STEP B: Essential Standards Pacing within Program

  • Populate the heading to the right of “Pacing Guide” with identified “essential standards.”
  • Using the TE locate the number of opportunities each standard is taught during ‘core’ lessons. Populate corresponding cell with tally marks using ‘lower case L’ rather than numbers.
  • To make Pacing Guide even more visually valuable, highlight cells in essential standards’ row as per highlighting on Learning Progression Chart CST column.
  • Next, highlight the tally-mark-filled cells in pale yellow.
  • Finally, use your school calendar to locate natural breaks in the pacing to align with the curriculum.
