“ A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.” -Emerson

- Goals/agenda for today:
- Why the Common Core State Standards?
- Reading/ELA and Math Standards-Broad overview
- What’s on the Test: Smarter-Balanced Consortium
- Literacy across the Curriculum: SDE Health Education Team
- Team Building at the District level; how can SDE help?
- Seize the Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQtmGcdSDAI&NR=1

Standards describe what we want students to know and be able to do - our shared vision of what skills and knowledge are important and valued

Origin of the Common Core State Standards

The Foundation:

Standards describe what we want students to know and be able to do - our shared vision of what skills and knowledge are important and valued

The Framing:

Curriculum is the detailed plan for how the standards are taught and in what order [not a national curriculum]

The Framing:

Curriculum is the detailed plan for how the standards are taught and in what order [not a national curriculum]

The Finish Work:

Instruction is the fine grain of how the curriculum is taught

The Finish Work:

Instruction is the fine grain of how the curriculum is taught

The Inspection:

Assessment reveals level of standards mastery-An INTEGRATED system

The Inspection:

Assessment reveals level of standards mastery-An INTEGRATED system

In 2008 State chiefs, governors and CCSSO studied current standards and national achievement results:

- Status quo: A mile wide and an inch deep, declining achievement on international assessments
- Teachers, researchers, higher ed. education experts began work on the standards, nearly all states have adopted-evidence of exceptional cooperation
- The goal: Fewer and deeper standards that raise the bar, are internationally benchmarked

Old School, Cliff Notes version [the 12 day, 15 city European Tour]:

- One class session on Transcendentalists, summary, no primary texts, tested by matching: Who wrote Walden?
- “I think it’s about some dude who went fishing.”
- Common Core:
- Read actual writings of Thoreau on civil disobedience and trace the lineage of this movement through Gandhi's work in India, the civil rights movement [MLK] in the US, and the Arab Spring.
- Research and collaborate with a partner to create and deliver an oral presentation, standing for questions.
- Individuals write an organized, detailed analysis on this topic, citing relevant text reference. Peer revise/edit. Final draft.
- Must reach the classroom and change instructional practice

Those scoring below proficient [21] on ACT had common factor:

- Inability to answer questions associated with complex texts [Seen across all subgroups]
- One remedial reading course= 30% chance of graduating college versus 69%
- Despite more complex text in the workplace, text complexity has declined steadily over the last 50 years.
- http://www.corestandards.org/assets/Appendix_A.pdf
- “Appendix A: ELA and Literacy in History, Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects”……… This reflects interdisciplinary approach; everyone owns literacy

Can’t just look at simple word frequency or sentence length metrics [quantitative]–

Grapes of Wrath rates at the 2-3 grade level

- Multiple Levels of meaning [qualitative] must factor in equation [familiar language to convey sophisticated ideas]
- Reader and Task Considerations-Professional Educators select for particular students or tasks

College and Career Ready Writing Standard #9:

- “Draw evidence from literary and informational text to support analysis, reflection, and research.” [same for grades 4-12]
- A. “Apply grade 11-12 Reading Standards to literature ...how two or more texts treat similar subjects”

[specific to grades 11-12]

- B. “Apply grades 11-12 Reading Standards to literary nonfiction…delineate and evaluate reasoning in seminal US texts…”
- On page 47 of your ELA CCSS Booklet

Goal: Foster flexible, fluent, and rhetorically agile writers

- Well versed and practiced in……
- Narrative
- Informational and
- Persuasive Writing
- They consider purpose and audience
- Changing NCLB’s unintended consequence

- “Write routinely over extended time frame [time for research, reflection, and revision] and shorter time frames [a single sitting or a day or two] for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.”
- Are your students writing Routinely?

Schoolnet Role in Common Core Implementation

- Statewide data management system, digital backpack, Align, and Assess
- Unpacked CCSS loaded
- Digital content and open source item banks
- aligned to standards available
- Building a resource for teachers, teacher created work uploaded

Smarter-Balance Assessment Consortium [SBAC]

- More than 30 states, Idaho is a lead
- [Economy of size –Idaho gets a lot!]
- Evidence based approach, support from national assessment, and educational experts
- SBAC tests replace ISAT in 2014-15!!
- [except for science]
- http://www.k12.wa.us/SMARTER/default.aspx

A National Consortium of States

- 29 states representing 48% of K-12 students
- 21 governing, 8 advisory states
- Washington state is fiscal agent

- We test what we value!
- SBAC tests will adhere closely to CCSS in a fully integrated system
- With supports/tools/resources for teachers and students: interim banks [2014] and formative tools [2012]

Item Types-Not the same old test

- Computer adaptive
- Technology enhanced,[drag and click]
- Constructed response [paragraph or two]
- Emphasis on Performance Assessment:
- On demand writing
- Performance tasks, some over several days, multiple standards, use texts, video, speaking, listening, writing
- http://nysedregents.org/ComprehensiveEnglish/

What is performance assessment?

- If you want to know if someone can do something, have them do it and score it by a set of rules [Rubrics]
- Authentic, active, requires creativity and synthesis and application –highest cognitive complexity
- Rubrics with student responses provide a platform for instruction and common language around learning
- Marriage of assessment and instruction-Formative

Write short paragraph about the first time you rode a rollercoaster. Directive: Which best communicates this experience?

a. The line was a long line. It took a long time to get to the front. I felt sort of funny before I rode the rollercoaster. I am glad I road the rollercoaster after all. I ride it all the time now when I go there.

- Looming before was the infamous Wild Mouse Rollercoaster. The line of miners going up Chilkoot Pass had nothing on this one. Several birthdays came and went before we reached the front, while my stomach did wingovers, sweat beading on my forehead. Here we go! Visible still are my finger prints embedded in car 29’s safety bar.
- It took 45 minutes to get to the front of the line, and I was getting nervous. I got more and more nervous until we finally reached the front. We were on, and it was fun, but I did not let go of the bar. I really like the part that goes through the pool of water. Now it is my favorite ride.
- Build a Rubric; Learning progressions

Preparing for the Common Core State Standards

- MATHEMATICS
- Recognizing Excellence in all Students

a game changer

How do you recognize excellence?

- You don’t always recognize it.
- Sometimes…you reveal it.

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics,

Kindergarten

In Kindergarten, instructional time should focus on twocritical areas: (1) representing and comparing whole numbers, initially with sets of objects;

(2) describing shapes and space. More learning time in Kindergarten should be devoted to number than to other topics.

Critical Areas

Brief Description

Full Description

- Students use numbers, including written numerals, to represent quantities and to solve quantitative problems, such as counting objects in a set; counting out a given number of objects; comparing sets or numerals; and modeling simple joining and separating situations with sets of objects, or eventually with equations such as 5 + 2 = 7 and 7 – 2 = 5. (Kindergarten students should see addition and subtraction equations, and student writing of equations in kindergarten is encouraged, but it is not required.) Students choose, combine, and apply effective strategies for answering quantitative questions, including quickly recognizing the cardinalities of small sets of objects, counting and producing sets of given sizes, counting the number of objects in combined sets, or counting the number of objects that remain in a set after some are taken away.
- (2) Students describe their physical world using geometric ideas (e.g., shape, orientation, spatial relations) and vocabulary. They identify, name, and describe basic two-dimensional shapes, such as squares, triangles, circles, rectangles, and hexagons, presented in a variety of ways (e.g., with different sizes and orientations), as well as three-dimensional shapes such as cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres. They use basic shapes and spatial reasoning to model objects in their environment and to construct more complex shapes.

Counting & Cardinality

• Know number names and the count sequence.

• Count to tell the number of objects.

• Compare numbers.

Operations & Algebraic Thinking

• Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.

Number & Operations in Base Ten

• Work with numbers 11–19 to gain foundations for place value.

Measurement & Data

• Describe and compare measurable attributes.

• Classify objects and count the number of objects in categories.

Geometry

• Identify and describe shapes.

• Analyze, compare, create, and compose shapes.

- Know number names and the count
- sequence. Standards CLUSTER Heading
- Count to 100 by ones and tens. Standards
- Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence [instead of having to begin at 1]
- Write numbers from 0 to 20. Represent a number of objects with a written numeral 0-20 [with 0 representing a count of no objects]

Consequences of Limited Health Literacy

- Adults with limited health literacy, as measured by reading and numeracy skills, have less knowledge of disease management and of health-promoting behaviors, report poorer health status, and are less likely to use preventive services. (Finding 3-3)

Cost of Limited Health Literacy

$69 billion in avoidable expenditures

Skill-based Health Education Nutbeam, 2008

- Basic/functional literacy – to function in everyday situations by using basic reading and writing skills
- Communicative/interactive literacy - to communicate and transfer meaning to new situations by using advanced cognitive, literacy, and social skills
- Critical literacy - to critically analyze information and use it to control our actions - empowerment
