Identifying Gaps between the KCAS and your School’s Curriculumclick here
You need . . . • Grade level KCAS placemat • Your curriculum for your grade level • Sticky notes • Markers • Highlighter • Identifying the Gaps graphic for reference • Identifying the Gaps document for reference
What a Gap Is . . . and Is NOT A Gap IS A Gap is NOT Content moved to a later grade Increased rigor since content is not new • Content moved to a previous grade • Altogether new content which students will miss in previous grades
This process sets the stage for . . . • identifying both kinds of gaps. • collaboration in addressing the gaps. • valuable dialogue around the KCAS. • identifying professional development needs for new content and vocabulary.
This process sets the stage for . . . • collaboration to understand & increase rigor. • discussions around content that is no longer part of our standards.
What we’ll do We’ll model an abbreviated version of the process so you understand how it works. You’ll modify to meet the needs of your school or district.
First, on the KCAS placemat for your grade level . . . • Highlight what is new. • Underline anything confusing or what you are unsure how to teach. • Star (*) anything you would identify as a significant increase in rigor.
On your curriculum . . . • Highlight what you have been teaching that is NOT in the KCAS for your grade level.
Come to consensus on what does NOT show up in the KCAS at your grade level. CHART & POST 2 3 5 4 1 K 12
Next, Carousel Activity • Take with you . . . • your grade level placemat where you marked what is new. • sticky notes or a marker. • Use a sticky or marker to identify what shows up now in the KCAS at your grade level. • You can also identify what you’d like to learn more about.
Then, back with grade level team Answer the question, Has what you charted been identified in a previous grade’s KCAS?
Next Steps, Collaborate to . . . • develop a plan for addressing gaps. Set priorities. • identify gaps that may occur with new content at previous grade levels. • find effective ways to increase rigor. • discuss content no longer included in the KCAS. • learn from others
Recommendations for Implementation • Modify process to meet the needs of your school. Have all grades represented. • Make sure administrators understand the process. • Begin with a common understanding of what you are looking for. • Define rigor. • Use time saving strategies. • Provide time for and value the conversation.

Example: During the term, we have discussed both the evolution of Spanish literature and the changing political climate in Spain during the twentieth century. • Analyze these two dimensions of life in Spain, citing instances where you think literature and politics may have influenced each other. • B. Describe the influences in specific terms. In planning your response, think about what we have learned about prominent novelists, political satirists, and prominent political figures of Spain. (5 points per instance, total =15 points.)
