facts
Facts
  • Existing text sets will require little or no change (see next webinar for further text complexity details)
  • In English language arts, the Standards build on the firm foundation of the NAEP frameworks in Reading and Writing, which draw on extensive scholarly research and evidence
  • CCGPS will not dictate how teachers should teach but allow schools and teachers to decide how best to help students reach the standards
  • Only K-5 have Foundational Reading Standards
  • Only 6-12 have separate cross-content Literacy Standards
facts continued
Facts, continued…
  • Clarity and staircase design allow for ease in constructing pre-assessments using previous grade CCGPS
  • Best practices will not change:

Relevant Multimodal Student-focused

Authentic Collaborative Purposeful

  • Strategic steps for professional learning and implementation are moving forward according to schedule
  • By joining us for this webinar, you are on target in your preparation in this preliminary phase
slide21

“If you don't like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it. You just do it one step at a time.”

~Marion Wright Edelman

  • All change brings with it some anxiousness and uncertainty
  • We understand (and appreciate!) your eagerness to begin this process
  • Rest assured that resources are being provided on a strategic schedule that will allow our focus to remain on GPS for 2011

gps non integrated task kindergarten
GPS Non-integrated Task: Kindergarten

Single standard/element focus

GPS Focus Standard

ELAKR6: The student gains meaning from orally presented text. The student: h) Retells important facts in the student’s own words.

Essential Question(s) What is a retelling?

Assessment Method/Type: Students’ oral retelling; rubric

Performance Task: The teacher will refer to previous books that the students have read aloud during Reader’s Workshop. At this time the teacher will pair students together and allow them to select a well-known book. The students will then take turns retelling the stories to each another. At this time the teacher should be circulating the room listening to the students’ responses and making notes of children who are having difficulties retelling the stories in their own words. The teacher may also assist students who are struggling.

Meaningless, redundant EQ; avoid EQs that simply restate or define the standard

Single standard focus

No explicit step where connection of items in child’s summary must be shown to connect to evidence from text.

GPS Integrated Task: Kindergarten

Multiple domain/standard/ element focus

  • GPS Focus Standards
  • ELAKR2 The student demonstrates the ability to identify and orally manipulate words and individual sounds within those spoken words. The student
  • a. Identifies and produces rhyming words in response to an oral prompt and distinguishes rhyming and non-rhyming words. b. Identifies component sounds (phonemes and combinations of phonemes) in spoken words.
  • ELAKR6 The student gains meaning from orally presented text. The student
  • Listens to and reads a variety of literary (e.g., short stories, poems) and informational texts and materials to gain knowledge and for pleasure.
  • ELAKW1 The student begins to understand the principles of writing. The student b. Uses drawings, letters, and phonetically spelled words to create meaning.
  • ELAKLSV1 The student uses oral and visual skills to communicate. The student
  • a. Listens and speaks appropriately with peers and adults.
  • b. Follows two-part oral directions.
  • Essential Question(s): What are some important ways in which words are alike and different? How can similarities and differences help us group word families?
  • Assessment Method/Type: Rhyming Assessment Rubric/Participation/Observation
  • Performance Task: Read the story, One Sun, to the children for pleasure. Reread the book and have Funny Bunny* ring his chime when he hears the rhyming word pairs. (The teacher will model use of the rhyme chime with Funny Bunny, then allow children to take turns performing the task). After you have reread the story, go back and have students record the rhyming pairs on chart paper. Compare the words for students to discover that they have the same group of letters at the end of the word and tell them that we call them word families. Then have the students generate new words that rhyme with each pair (ex. for sand/hand, they could say land, band, etc.) Record the new rhymes. Continue generating rhyming words for each page’s rhyming pair and save for future innovations.

Focused, meaningful essential question

Holistic, formative

Rhyming words from text identified and written

Includes student-generated original words (generalization of skill)

ELACCKRF2: Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).

a. Recognize and produce rhyming words.

ELACCKRL10: Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding.

Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic or the name of the book they are “writing” about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book

ELACCKSL1: Participate in collaborative conversations with diverse partners about kindergarten topics and texts with peers and adults in small and larger groups.

a. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions (e.g., listening to others and taking turns speaking about the topics and texts under discussion).

Essential Question(s): What are some important ways in which words are alike and different? How can similarities and differences help us group word families?

Assessment Method/Type: Students will dictate a one paragraph essay arguing whether rhymes made One Sun more or less fun to listen to or easier or more difficult to understand. The paragraph should include at least one example of a rhyme and how it supports the student’s opinion.

Performance Task: Read the story, One Sun, to the children for pleasure. Reread the book and have Funny Bunny* ring his chime when he hears the rhyming word pairs (The teacher will model use of the rhyme chime with Funny Bunny, then allow children to take turns performing the task). After you have reread the story, go back and have students record the rhyming pairs on chart paper. Compare the words for students to discover that they have the same group of letters at the end of the word and tell them that we call them word families. Then have the students generate new words that rhyme with each pair (ex. for sand/hand, they could say land, band, etc.) Record the new rhymes. Continue generating rhyming words for each page’s rhyming pair and save for future innovations.

ELA1W2: The student will write in a variety of genres, including narrative, informational, persuasive, and response to literature (elements a-h inclusive)

Essential Question(s) When is letter writing an appropriate format for persuasive writing?

Assessment Method/Type: The teacher is monitoring and conferencing with students. The teacher is documenting conferences on sticky notes.

Performance Task: During the work time, the students will be drafting a letter to the principal. In the letter they will persuade him or her to let their class have the class pet of its choice. The teacher should remind students of the strategies they can use to persuade, and encourage them to use more than one strategy. The teacher will choose two to three students to share their letters during the closing.

Does this EQ make sense to you? To students?

Effective? What happens to the notes?

No text connection. Needs stronger emphasis on evidence and support as opposed to appeals to emotion, etc.
