A CCR Discussion to Frame the Day… • Scan one of the two articles • Fundamentals of Learning, Heritage • Building on the Common Core, Conley • Highlight 1-2 word phrases that resonate with you • Visit with a colleague…When you consider the elements of CCR in the context of this article, • What role do student learning standards and associated assessments serve in reaching a vision of CCR for all students? • What actions are you and your teams taking to prepare for CCR standards and assessments? • What stands out as a practical application within your role/s? WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  7. State Context, Approach, and Key Timelines WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  8. 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 21stcentury. WA Educators Conference 10-21-13 Class of 2011: Bridgeport High School

  9. Washington’s Education Reform Context Today: Shared Vision and Priorities BEA Funding and Policy Recommendations District-directed professional learning structures Career and College Ready State Learning Standards for ALL Students (CCSS/NGSS) Student and School Success Aligned Federal and State Programs Assessment & Accountability Systems (SBAC) Basic Education Act: State Learning Goals McCleary Court Decision & Fully Funding Basic Education National Board Certification Educator Effectiveness Systems (TPEP) Comprehensive Mentor & Induction Programs (BEST) Professional Learning Aligned to Standards Pre-Service Programs Regional Support Systems (ESDs) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  10. Superintendent Dorn’s Priorities for OSPI and K-12 Education OSPI’s Mission: To provide funding, resources, tools, data and technical assistance to educators so that they can help students to be successful in our public schools and in college and careers. • Strategic Priorities (2011-2014) • Meet our Constitutional Obligation to Fully-fund our Public Schools • Improve Achievement for ALL Students • Improve our Student Assessment System • Expand Career and Technical Education (CTE) • Expand and Enhance Early Learning Opportunities • 2014 Budget and Policy Priorities • Full funding for basic education • Implementation of: • New Teacher Principal Evaluation System (TPEP) • Common Core State Standards (CCSS ELA + M) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) • Smarter Balanced Assessments and supporting technology • A newly aligned state and federal accountability system WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  11. Bringing the CCR System Together All students leave high school college and career ready • • • WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  12. Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCR Standards Implementation in WA 2-Prongs: • The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators) • Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content. • The How: System “Remodeling” • Belief that successful implementation will not take place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…” • Belief that districts across the state have the conditions and commitment present to engage wholly in this work. • Professional learning systems are critical WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  13. The “What”: Washington’s K-12 Learning Standards Landscape(CCSS-M, CCSS-ELA, EALRS, GLEs, PEs) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  14. The “What”: Next Generation English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards Guiding Principles Design Goals • ELLS need opportunities to interact in meaningful ways. • ELLs need opportunities to learn about how English works. • ELLS need opportunities to learn foundational literacy skills (if they haven’t already learned them) • Correspond with and be used in tandem with CCSS (ELA and Math) • Highlight and amplify the critical language, knowledge about language, and skills using language in the CCSS necessary for ELLs to be successful in school • Provide fewer, clearer, higher standards WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  15. The “What”: Washington’s K-12 Learning Standards Landscape, Continued(CCSS-M, CCSS-ELA, EALRS, GLEs, PEs,) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  16. CCSS and NGSSWashington’s Implementation Phases and Timelines WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  17. Washington Ongoing: Statewide Coordination and Collaboration to Support Implementation (Professional Learning Providers and Partners Across WA ) • Including: • School Districts (CCSS District Implementation Network) • Higher Education • Education and Educator Content Associations • Business Partners WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  18. “Remodeling” Statewide Professional Learning Collaborations • Calibrate and share messages and resources • Across OSPI departments • Across Statewide OSPI / ESD Network • Jointly develop 3-year Transition Plans and Year-by-Year PD Materials • Co-branded and consistent materials • Articulate foci of state-developed and delivered professional learning supports each year. • Statewide capacity-building efforts • ELA and Math Teacher Leader Fellows Network WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  19. The “How”: System Remodeling 1. What do all students need to know and be able to do as a result of the CCSS? 3. How do we design a professional learning system to support them? 2. What do the adults in the system need to know and be able to do to support all students? WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  20. Through the lens of building and classroom leaders… WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  21. Pulling it all together… (as seen by your colleagues in Snohomish School District) How are you thinking about these systems together? Visit with a colleague Co-pilot/navigator – TPEPprovides support/gets you back on track Students Teacher Destination “Common Core State Standards”/ Improved Student Learning Vehicle – “Formative Assessment” – Helps get you to your “destination” Shared by: Jean Carwin, K-8 Math Specialist/TOSA WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  22. Transitions to CCR StandardsELA, Math, Science The “What”, The “How”, and Resources for Where to Start WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  23. Building Educator Capacity is KEY “The dramatic shift in teaching prompted by the common core will require practical, intensive, and ongoing professional learning – not one-off “spray and pray” training that exposes everyone to the same material and hope it sticks” ~Stephanie Hirsh, Learning Forward (2011) “Current teachers must receive extensive professional development on the Common Core standards, curricular materials, and strategies on teaching that now require students to delve deeper and develop critical thinking and analytical skills that previous standards did not adequately address…” ~ National Association of State Boards of Education (2011) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  24. Need for More PD to Implement CCSS WA Educators Conference 10-21-13 Have you received any professional development or training related to CCSS? Was that training adequate in preparing you to teach to the standards? Source: Teachers Assess Implementation Of The Common Core Hart Research Survey for AFT, 2013

  25. Need for More Time to Practice PD WA Educators Conference 10-21-13 • Thinking about the past 12 months, has each of the following increased, decreased or stayed the same at your school? • Time to collaborate with other teachers • Professional development opportunities Source: 2012 MetLife Survey of the American Teacher

  26. CCR Implementation – through a district, building, and classroom lens WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  27. Where to Start…FIRST: Phase 1 Exploration and Awareness Among… • District leaders and leadership teams • Building leaders and building teams Take the time to immerse yourself in and learn about… • The WHY - The background and vision of the CCR standards • The WHAT - The major shifts in the content • The HOW – • Our state’s approach toward supporting implementation • Emerging resources and support systems WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  28. NEXT: Phase 2 within your Building Context Start the transition by Setting the Course! • Identify a core group of leaders (across grades and subjects; parents? Community partners?) as a lead implementation team • Take stock of current instructional practices, strengths, and challenges • Establish a shared vision that will guide implementation with all students and educators – what will it mean for your district/building? • Develop School-Specific Transition / Implementation Plans • In relation to your district’s overall vision and transition plan • Access Achieve and Learning Forward materials to inform professional learning • Establish short and long term goals to begin moving forward WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  29. NOW….Phase 3 Transitions into Classrooms! 2-Prongs: • The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators) And… • The How: System (and Classroom) “Remodeling” WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  30. The “What” CCSS-ELA: The 3 Shifts (Handout – Page 5) • Building content knowledge through content-rich nonfiction • Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational • Regular practice with complex text and its academic language WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  31. Operationalizing the CCSS shifts Read & re-read the standards and appendices. Use them to guide lesson planning and lesson revisions. Study the vertical articulation of each strand! What are the the components of the years before? Where are students going next? Think and plan ACROSS CONTENTS. Some literacy skills are learned best in English class/ reading block. Others make sense in other contents. Work together with your team! WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  32. The “What”CCSS-M: The 3 Shifts (Handout – Page 6) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13 • Focus strongly where the standards focus • Coherence: Think across grades and link to major topics within grades • Rigor: In major topics, pursue with equal intensity: • Conceptual understanding • Procedural skill and fluency • Application

  33. Operationalizing the CCSS shifts Do: Read the standards including critical areas of focus. Know the structure of the standards. Know the major, supporting and additional clusters for your grade. Study the progression documents with colleagues. Think about unit design first, then lesson, then task. WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  34. Operationalizing the CCSS shifts Caution: Watch for activities that treat the new standards as a swap out of old standards Watch for activities that separate each standard into pieces (i.e. assessment, standards-based grading) Watch for too much attention to one piece of implementation (practice standards, fluency) Watch for one-shot implementation strategies – there is no silver bullet WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  35. Tools: Bringing shifts into the classroom –Instruction WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  36. Tools: Bringing shifts into the classroom – Instruction ( Practice Guides provide specific guidance for what the CCSS for Mathematics looks like in planning and practice. They are designed as developmental tools for teachers and those who support teachers.   ( ) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  37. Tools: Bringing shifts into the classroom - Assessment Smarter Balanced Practice Tests - Sample: 7th grade performance task Assessment guides to evaluate each grade/course’s assessments for alignment with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  38. Tools: Bringing shifts into the classroom – Instructional Materials Materials Alignment Toolkit - A complete set of tools to aid in the design and procurement of CCSS aligned instructional materials, including assessments ( Grounded in… Publisher’s Criteria provides guidance for selecting or developing new curriculum and textbooks or for revising or supplementing existing materials. ( Let’s take a look! WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  39. The “What”NGSS: The 3 Shifts (Handout – Page 8) • The NGSS Reflect the Interconnected Nature of Science through Focus, Understanding, and Application of Content • The Science Concepts in the NGSS Build Coherently from K–12. • Science and Engineering are Integrated across K–12 in the NGSS. WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  40. Washington Science Standards (2009) Next Generation Science Standards (2013) WA Science Standards “Evolution” • Four Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRS) • Systems • Inquiry • Application • Domains • Life Science • Physical Science • Earth and Space Science • Science and Engineering Practices • Identifies 8 Practices • Subsumes WA Inquiry • Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) • Adds Engineering and Technology • Subsumes WA Application • Crosscutting Concepts • Adds 7 crosscutting concepts • Subsumes WA Systems and Application WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  41. WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  42. Sample Transition Plan: Grade 1 WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  43. Transitioning to the NGSS: Year 0 Do: • Study A Framework for K12 Science Education in conjunction with the NGSS. • Work with colleagues to deeply understand the Science and Engineering Practices, the Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs) and the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs). • Consider how infusing the Practices into current classroom changes pedagogical practice. • Make connections among content and practices with current CCSS transitions underway WA Educators Conference 10-21-13

  44. Transitioning to the NGSS: Year 0 Caution: • Beware of activities that do not first begin with an understanding of The Framework. • Watch for activities that treat the NGSS as a swap out of old standards • Watch for activities that separate each Performance Expectation into pieces (i.e. only the Practices, or the CCCs, or the DCIs) • Watch for one-shot implementation strategies – there is no silver bullet WA Educators Conference 10-21-13
