washington s vision for education
Washington’s Vision for Education

Every Washington public school student will graduate from high school globally competitive for work

and postsecondary education

and prepared for life in the 21st century.

implementing the common core state standards in washington state
Implementing the Common Core State Standards in Washington State

Our Purpose: To develop a statewide system with aligned resources that supports all school districts in their preparation of educators and students to implement the CCSS.

Our Core Values: This vision can only occur through core values of clarity, consistency, collaboration, coordination, and commitment from classrooms, schools, and communities to the state level.

Our Vision: Every student will have access to the CCSS standards through high quality instruction aligned with the standards every day; and that all teachers are prepared and receive the support they need to implement the standards in their classrooms every day.

The Five Claims – Students can

CSS Webinar Series Part 2: ELA

1. read closely and critically to comprehend a range of increasingly complex literacy and informational texts.

2. produce effective writing for a range of purposes and audiences

3. employ effective speaking and listening sills for a range of purposes and audiences

4. engage appropriately in collaborative and independent inquiry to investigate/research topics, pose questions, and gather and present information.

5. skillfully use and interpret written language across a range of literacy tasks.

disciplinary literacy
“Disciplinary Literacy”

Calling on the experts in the field to help students meet the particular challenges of reading, writing, speaking, listening and language in their respective fields.

“Skilled teachers trained in specific discipline are best positioned to teach students how to read, write and think deeply about the content.”

common core literacy standards
Common Core Literacy Standards

The Common Core is organized by grade level:

K-5, 6-8, 9-10, 11- College and Career Ready

Several sets of Literacy Standards (I’ll concentrate on the first 2)

Reading, Writing, Speaking/Listening, Language

Reading standards are divided by grade level into:

Key Ideas and Details

Craft and Structure

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity

Writing standards are divided by grade level into:

Text Types and Purposes

Production and Distribution of Writing

Research to Build and Present Knowledge

Range of Writing

progression of learning
Progression of Learning

Common Core simply takes the 10 Anchor Standards in Reading and Writing and adds levels of sophistication over time.

increasing sophistication
Increasing Sophistication

Reading Anchor Standard #9 Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.

Grades 11-CCR

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

9. Integrate information from diverse sources, both primary and secondary, into a coherent understanding of an idea or event, noting discrepancies among sources.

Kindergarten

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

  • 9. Compare and contrast the most important points and key details presented in two texts on the same topic.

On a Post-It write your definition of the Gradual Release of ResponsibilityDiscussion:

What does this increased sophistication mean?

Defining Gradual Release of Responsibility….
  • Modeled, Shared, Guided and Independent
    • (I do, We do, You do)
    • This is the last chance students will get to have these skills modeled and scaffolded with them
  • Let’s try it….. “On the Road to Implementation”
    • Marking the Text (AVID critical reading strategy)
reading anchor standards
Reading Anchor Standards

Key Ideas and Details

1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

2. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.

3. Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.

reading anchor standards1
Reading Anchor Standards

Craft and Structure

4. Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.

5. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.

6. Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text.

Reading Anchor Standards

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

7. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.

8. Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.

9. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.

Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity

10. Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.

planning
Planning….

Process- begins in English class but the Transfer to your content deepens the understanding of how to utilize that skill/strategy.

Important to identify your existing practices – you will find that you are already doing much of this in your courses.

What is CC requiring that we don’t already do? - Filling in the gaps…..

Collaborate with ELA teachers – plan units together, use the same formats, ways to attack a text, etc.

Co-planning: English teachers teach process and you add the content and then create a rubric to score together.

how do we do this
How do we do this?

With the exception of Standard #5 (Text Structure) and #10 (Text Complexity) most of you are probably already asking this of your students.

  • Looking for evidence
  • Central Ideas
  • Causation
  • Vocabulary
  • Point of View and Bias
  • Multiple types of Media
  • Fact or Opinion
  • Primary and Secondary Sources

What is currently your strongest area of reading

alignment to the CC?

What are 2 significant areas you feel you CAN BEGIN

to “upgrade” in some way this school year?

What is 1 thing on the back burner that will surely

need more attention by next year?

Any other insights gained during this process?

5. Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.

Grades 11-CCR

6th Grade

Production and Distribution of Writing

5. With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.

how do we do this1
How do we do this?
  • Collaborate with ELA teachers in your school
    • (Know what you don’t know)
  • Students need a lot morewriting practice.
  • Students need teachers who model good writing.
  • Students need many opportunities to read and study other writers.
  • Students need choice when it comes to writing topics.
  • Students need to write for authentic purposes and for authentic audiences.
  • Students need meaningful feedback from both the teacher and their peers.

Reflecting upon what you did today, take a few moments to “jot down” some implications for upgrading the literacy curriculum & instruction within your units. Consider the following and then share.

1. Content/Pedagogy: What are your most critical areas of need? What should you tackle first? What is your general timeline for this year into next year?

2. Collaboration: How might you expand & support this work across teacher teams you work with?

3. Supports: What resources might further your transition work? What new learning do you need so you will have greater clarity around implementing the CCSS acrosscontent areas?

Implementation Activities

CCSS Webinar Series Part 2: Systems Update

Things to consider with your teams…

  • What is different about the CCSS?

What will students be doing differently?

What will teachers be doing differently?

  • Next Steps……

Connect with ELA teachers to align literacy resources, pacing, etc.

Continue working on unpacking the standards to help you plan your units of study
