  1. Dr. Christina Steinbacher-Reed Unpacking the ElA Common Core Standards: an introduction

  2. Where are you with Common Core?

  3. Why Common Core? • The Council of Chief State School Officers (ccsso.org) • International Testing • Consistent expectations for student learning • College and Career driven

  4. Common Core is Not . . .

  5. Common Core vs. PA Common Core • All inclusive, nationally accepted literacy standards • Includes CC that are included in eligible content (tested now) Common Core PA Common Core

  6. Assessment Shifts • Gr. 3-8 Reading PSSA • Gr. 5 and 8 Writing PSSA • Gr. 3-5 Writing Field Test • Gr. 3-5 ELA (based on CC and includes writing) • Gr. 6-8 Reading (eligible content) • Gr. 8 Writing • Gr. 6-8 Writing Field Test 2013 2014

  7. How do we begin the transition to Common Core? The knowns: • Full implementation in 2014 The tentatively knowns: • Common Core vs. PA Common Core • Assessments for Common Core

  8. What are the ‘big shifts’? • More nonfiction • More writing • Writing an argument • Text Complexity • Citing evidence • Research • Primary sources

  9. Where to Begin - Teacher Level • Learn how to navigate the standards and explore informational resources • Begin shifting instruction: cite evidence, write an argument, text complexity, informational texts • Unpack the Standards • Align or build the curriculum – Begin by revising 1-2 units this year

  10. As we start on this journey, select one unit in which to begin shifting towards Common Core.

  11. How do we navigate the ELA standards? Three main sections • K-5 (cross-disciplinary) • 6-12 (English Language Arts) • 6-12 (Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects) Three appendices A: Research & evidence; glossary of key terms B: Reading text exemplars; sample performance tasks C: Annotated student writing samples

  12. Literature Informational Foundational Skills

  13. Key Design Features • College and Career Anchor Standards • Vertical Progression • Technology integrated • Literacy is shared responsibility in all content areas

  14. Vertical Progression of RI.1 • RI Anchor Standard 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 to support conclusions drawn from text

  15. Literature Informational Foundational Skills

  16. CCR Anchor Standards for Reading(p.10 and p.35) • Read “Note on range and content of student reading” • Underline what stands out to you • Share your thoughts with a partner

  17. Reading Standards for Literature • Key Ideas and Details • Craft and Structure • Integration of Knowledge and Ideas • Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity

  18. Text Complexity • Qualitative – levels of meaning, structure, clarity, knowledge demands • Quantitative – word length, readability level • Reader and Task - (motivation, background knowledge, purpose and complexity of task) Common Core Appendix A - Page 2-9 Appendix B – Text Examples

  19. Which literary standards would fit into your unit?

  20. Reading Standards for Informational(p. 13 and p.39) Key Ideas and Details Craft and Structure Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity

  21. In Action . . . • Analyzing Informational Text - Gr. 5 • Evidence and Arguments - Gr. 9-12

  22. Which informational standards would fit into your unit?

  23. Reading Standards: Foundational Skills (p. 15) Print Concepts Phonological Awareness Phonics and Word Recognition Fluency

  24. Which foundational standards would fit into your unit?

  25. Writing (K-5 p.18, 6-12 p.41) • Read “Note on range and content of student writing” • Underline what stands out to you • Share your thoughts with a partner

  26. Overview of Writing Strand • Focus on the use of reason and evidence to substantiate an argument or claim • Emphasize ability to conduct research – short projects and sustained inquiry • Require students to incorporate technology as they create, refine, and collaborate on writing • Include student writing samples that illustrate the criteria required to meet the standards

  27. Overview of Writing Types of Writing: • Argumentative • Informative/Explanatory • Narrative

  28. Learning Progressions- CCR.W.1 • Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence

  29. Which writing standards would fit into your unit?

  30. CCR Anchor Standards for Speaking and Listening (p. 22 and p.48) • Read “Note on range and content of student speaking and listening” • Underline what stands out to you • Share your thoughts with a partner

  31. Overview of Speaking and Listening • Focus on speaking and listening in a range of settings, both formal and informal – academic, small-group, whole-class discussions • Emphasize effective communication practices • Require interpretation and analysis of message as presented through oral, visual, or multimodal formats

  32. CCR Anchor Standards for Speaking and Listening (p. 22 and p.48) Comprehension and Collaboration Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas

  33. In Action • Post Its - Little Notes for Big Ideas

  34. Which speaking and listening standards would fit into your unit?

  35. CCR Anchor Standards for Language (p. 25 and p. 51) • Read “Note on range and content of student speaking and listening” • Underline what stands out to you • Share your thoughts with a partner

  36. Standards for Language (p.25) Conventions of Standard English Knowledge of Language Vocabulary Acquisition and Use

  37. Overview of Language Include conventions for writing and speaking Highlight the importance of vocabulary acquisition through a mix of conversation, direct instruction, and reading To be addressed in context of reading, writing, speaking and listening

  38. In action . . . • Poetic Elements - High School • Embedded Vocabulary - Elementary

  39. Which language standards would fit into your unit?

  40. How do we begin shifting our instruction? • The Common Core Ate My Baby • What Happens to the Basics? • Closing in on Close Reading • Making the Shifts • International Reading Association’s (IRA) Guidelines

  41. Carousel of Learning • Select an article • Read and mark the text • Work with group to chart out key points

  42. How do we unpack the standards? Let's open the suitcase before we retag it!

  43. Unpack the standards It’s a matter of perspective

  44. Standard Department of Ed Perspective

  45. Standard Teacher Perspective Unpacked – what do students really need to know, do and understand

  46. How do I ‘unpack’ a standard? • Look closely into the standard and identify what students need to: • Know - Information • Do - formative assessment – how do you know they know? • Understand – What is the enduring understanding? The big idea that is transferable to other learning

  47. Unpacking Standards - Example • Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals , events, ideas, or concepts in historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text. • Unpack this into a KUD with a partner

  48. Unpacking The Standards - KUDS • Delaware DOE KUD Organizers • North Carolina Unpacking Tools • pdesas.org

  49. Standard Student Perspective Lesson Planning

  50. Transforming Standards into Learning
