  14. Making the Content Connection to Common Core State Standards for Literacy and Mathematics

  15. The Need: Why Develop the CCSS? • Preparation: Prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in postsecondary endeavors , including the use and application of technology to demonstrate learning • Competition: Ensure our students are globally competitive through the emphasis of application, integration, critical thinking, and problem solving • Equity: Set consistent expectations for all--and not dependent on a student’s zip code • Collaboration: Create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise

  16. An Integrated System – at All Levels

  17. Florida’s State Board of EducationStrategic PlanApproved October 2012 • Strategic Goals • Section 1008.31, Florida Statute, establishes four goals for Florida’s education system. Each of these goals will be measured through the accountability system and progress will be documented through the performance indicators included in this Strategic Plan. • Highest Student Achievement • Seamless Articulation and Maximum Access • Skilled Workforce and Economic Development • Quality Efficient Services http://www.fldoe.org/strategic_plan/

  18. Florida Transitions toCommon Core State Standards Standards-based instruction • Instructional Materials and Test item specifications guide development of curriculum maps • FOCUS mini-assessments aligned to individual benchmarks are used to monitor student progress • Teaching benchmarks in isolation results in long lists of tasks to master Current Way of Work Common Core Way of Work Standards-based instruction facilitated by learning goals Big ideas and learning goals guide the development of curriculum maps Learning progressions or scales describe expectations for student progress in attaining the learning goals Assessments used to monitor student progress are aligned directly to the learning progressions or scales Teaching big ideas narrows the focus and allows students to delve deeper for a greater depth of understanding

  19. Common Core Curriculum Changes in Florida • New Standards/Benchmarks for ALL English Language Arts and Mathematics courses – ALL grade levels • Inclusion of applicable Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History, Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects (all other courses) and the Mathematical Practices • Implementation Timeline  

  20. Florida’s Common Core State Standards Implementation Timeline F- full implementation of CCSS for all content areas L – begin full implementation of content area literacy standards including: (1) use of informational text, text complexity, quality and range in all grades (K-12), and (2) CCSS Literacy Standards in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (6-12) B - blended instruction of CCSS with Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS); last year of NGSSS assessed on FCAT 2.0 http://www.fldoe.org/bii/pdf/CCSS-ImplementationTimeline.pdf A-Z 23

  21. What are the CCSS? Consist of the English Language Arts Standards, Mathematics Standards, and Literacy Standards for History, Science and Technical Subjects The CCSS: • Are aligned with college and work expectations; • Are clear, understandable and consistent; • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills; • Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards; • Are informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and • Are evidence-based. • Are state led and coordinated by NGA and CCSSO, • Are internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society, and • Define the vision of what it means to be a literate person in the twenty-first century.

  22. Embrace the Implementation of the Common Core! It is not changing WHAT we teach… …it’s changing HOW we teach! More emphasis on … …Literacy and Mathematical Practices

  23. Emphasis on Literacy Standards and Mathematical Practices What does implementation of Common Core Standards for Literacy and Mathematics look like in the content-area classrooms?

  26. Small Group Activity – Unpacking • Review the Literacy Standards (RST/WHST) for Biology and discuss the following points below in a small group. • Highlight/Underline: • Declarative learning goals: The student will understand “x” • Procedural learning goals: The student will be able to “y” • Complex tasks: The student will understand “x” and be able to “y” • Reflect on how the practices will: • impact instruction • appear in the classroom • help inform professional development needs • How do standards build on pre/post grade level standards? • Prepare to give examples and share out with group.

  27. Use appropriate tools strategically • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practices 1 5 Attend to precision • Reason abstractly and quantitatively 2 6 Look for and make sense of structure • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others 7 3 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning • Model with mathematics 8 4

  28. Common Core Benchmarks in the Science Curriculum

  29. Instructional Design in Layers Course Requirements and Standards Using the Common Core State Standards document and/or the course description the participants will identify the critical areas of focus or big ideas for the course “Chunks” or Big Ideas • Always begin with the course requirements defined by the standards in the course description. • “Chunk” the course content standards and/or benchmarks contained in the course description based upon these major areas of focus and identify the “big ideas”. Major Learning Goals • Step 1: make a distinction between learning goals and learning activities or assignments. • A learning goal is a statement of what students will know or be able to do. • Students will understand _____ and be able to ______. Progression Scales for Major Learning Goals • Step 2: Write a rubric or scale for each learning goal. • Step 3: Have students identify their own learning goals Progress Monitoring Assessments

  30. Instructional Design • Course requirements are defined by course descriptions/frameworks approved by the State Board. • Districts determine the scope and sequence through curriculum maps and “Chunk” the major units of focus or “Big Ideas” • Common Core Way of Work: • Identify Major Learning Goals that are MEASURABLE! • Essential Questions (target specific learning goals) • Engaging Activities • Progression Scales • Formative Assessments • Interim Assessments • Not driven by TEXTBOOKS or Test Item Specifications! • Differentiated for ESE, ELL, and RtI

  31. Determining Text Complexity The Common Core Standards' three equally important components of text complexity. • A Four-step Process: Determine the quantitative measures of the text. Quantitative Qualitative Analyze the qualitative measures of the text. Reader and Task Reflect upon the reader and task considerations. Recommend placement in the appropriate text complexity band.
