Introducing NCSSFL

National Council of State Supervisors for Languages

  • Program Supervisors working in the state educational agencies on Standards and Assessment
  • Partnering with ACTFL and other language organizations to align the National Standards for Learning Languages to the Common Core State Standards
questions to consider
Questions to Consider
  • What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
  • How can we link CC Anchor Standards to world language learning and teaching?
  • How can world languages support the CCSS?
the core
The Core . . .

The Common Core State Standards (CCSSS) define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education experience to graduate high school and to be able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses/workforce training programs.

the standards
The Standards . . .
  • Build upon strengths/lessons of current state standards and are internationally benchmarked with top performing countries.
  • Are clear, understandable and consistent.
  • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills.
  • Focus on learning expectations for students, not on specific methods of instruction, instructional resources.
new expectations
New Expectations
  • 2010-2013 Time for planning
  • 2014-2015Common assessments operational
  • Between now and then -Transitions in assessment systems

-Phase-in standards

-Curriculum development/alignment

-Professional development

This is a propitious time for world languages to make the connection!

key design considerations
Key Design Considerations
  • Focus on results rather than means
  • Integrated model of literacy
    • Processes of communication closely connected
  • Research and media skills blended into Standards
  • Shared responsibility for students’ literacy development
    • Special emphasis on informational text
how these relate to world languages
How these relate to World Languages
  • Focus on what students can do with the language (= results) not on how languages should be taught (=means)
  • Focus on modes of communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive, Presentational) not on isolated skills
  • Research and media skills are entailed in Interpretive and Presentational Modes
  • World languages teachers also develop literacy skills; Connections standard puts emphasis on informational text (not just literature)

activity 1 getting started
Activity 1: Getting Started
  • Review the Standards for Learning Languages (5 C’s) if you need to.
  • Take a look at the CC Anchor Standards for:- Reading- Writing- Speaking & Listening
  • Identify ways that the CCSS Anchor Standards align with the 5 C’s
aligning world languages tasks to the ccss
Aligning World Languages Tasks to the CCSS

Novice Level Task:

Students team with another class in a target language country

to identify and compare endangered species in both countries,

and collaborate to produce a multi-media informational

presentation for their peers using basic information in the

target language and post on an animal advocacy site.

WLs Standards:

ELA CCSS:

Math CCSS:

  • Intermediate Level Task:

Students create raps and/or poems reflecting a perspective,

such as a “coming of age” event in the target culture and

compare this with the “coming of age” process in the U.S.

such as getting a driver’s license or the right to vote. These

examples are then shared with peers in the target culture who

have completed a similar project and the results are shared on

a social media website with comments in the target language.

  • Advanced Level Task:

Students investigate an immigration issue in the US and

a target language country, analyze and synthesize the

information, and propose a solution in the form of a letter to

editors in the U.S. and in the target language country.

activity 2 aligning tasks
Activity 2: Aligning Tasks
  • Consider a specific Task for a specific proficiency level.
  • Take a look at the CCSS Anchor Standards for Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening, and the Standards for Learning Languages (5 C’s).
  • Identify ways that the Sample Tasks might incorporate CCSS Anchor Standards and 5 C’s.
aligning your world languages curriculum to the ccss
Aligning your World Languages Curriculum to the CCSS

1. Select a thematic unit of study in your current curriculum.

2. Identify priority world languages standards goal areas.

3. Identify standards selected for the unit from the Common Core State Standards.

4. “Unwrap” Priority Standards and create a graphic organizer with:

  • WLs linguistic and cultural objectives
  • Transferable ELA content and skill objectives
  • Interdisciplinary connections
thematic unit literature settings weather or not
Thematic UnitLiterature Settings: Weather or Not?

This six-week unit invites students to explore geography as it relates to seasons and

weather in target language countries . Students explore how these settings are

represented in—and affect events in—literature. (Modify to suit proficiency level)

CCSS:

  • RL.4.1: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
  • RL.4.3: Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions).
  • RI.4.3: Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.
  • RF.4.4: Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
  • RF.4.4(a): Read on-level text with purpose and understanding.
  • RF.4.4(b): Read on-level text orally with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression on successive readings.
  • W.4.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
  • SL.4.1: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade and level appropriate topics and texts, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
  • SL.4.1(c): Pose and respond to specific questions to clarify or follow up on information, and make comments that contribute to the discussion and link to the remarks of others.
  • SL.4.1(d): Review the key ideas expressed and explain their own ideas and understanding in light of the discussion.
  • L.4.5: Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
  • L.4.5(a): Sort words into categories (e.g., colors, clothing) to gain a sense of the concepts the categories represent. 

WLs Standards: Which standards are addressed? Modes of Communication?

thematic unit sample activities and assessments
Thematic Unit: Sample Activities and Assessments
  • Class Literary Graphic Organizer
    • Title and author
    • Type of literature (story or poem)
    • Main character(s)
    • Setting (geography, season and/or weather)
    • Summary (using the “Somebody-Wanted-But-So “strategy)

Write your own response on a Post-It note and share it with a partner before posting.

(CCSS RF.4.4a, RF.4.4b, RL.4.1, RL.4.2, RL.4.3, RL.4.5, L.4.5a)

  • Literature Response

What impact does weather have on stories such as (insert titles)? What if the setting were changed (i.e., from winter to summer, from the sea to the desert, or from a hurricane to a snowy day)? How would that change the story? Discuss your ideas with a partner and then with your partner, write a first draft of a scene for a modified story of choice.(CCSS RL.4.3, W.4.3)

  • WLs Standards: Which standards are addressed? Modes of Communication?
thematic unit sample activities and assessments23
Thematic Unit Sample Activities and Assessments
  • Weather Forecast

Read a variety of informational texts, in print and online, about a specific season in a

geographical region of choice in a target language country. Watch a meteorologist

presenting a weather forecast online or on TV, and describe what makes that style of

presenting unique. Then, write a weather forecast for the area of choice. Include visual

displays and maps in your electronic presentation, as appropriate, and share your

report with your class in the style of a meteorologist.

(CCSS RI.4.1, RI.4.3, RI.4.4, RI.4.7, RI.4.9, W.4.2, W.4.7, SL.4.4, SL.4.5, L.4.1a,c,d,g, L.4.2a,b)

  • Connecting with Art

Investigate how weather is portrayed in the various art forms in the target culture

(e.g., art, music) selected by your teacher. Describe the weather and use similes,

metaphors, or figurative language as needed. Write your own response and

compare your answer with others in the class. Choose your favorite art form and find a

Partner who likes the same one. Together, write an opening scene from a story that

would have that weather as its setting, using at least one metaphor or simile.

(CCSS RL.4.7, W.4.3b, L.4.5a)
