As many states across the nation transition to the Common Core State Standards and their new assessment paradigm, academies may be wondering how NAF courses align to these new expectations. This session will demonstrate NAF's course alignment tools and will explore how to capitalize on the natural connections between NAF coursework and the demands of the Common Core.

  • Scary read…compared to international counterparts, American kids in our schools: <br /> Study less <br /> Care less <br /> Learn less <br /> Face less rigor <br /> Are much less prepared in math <br /> Face lower expectations <br /> Learn from teachers w/ less education
  • The Common Core State Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for what knowledge and skills will help our students succeed– they do not tell teachers how they should teach. <br /> The common core state standards initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The federal government was not involved in the development of these standards; the standards are in no way connected to No Child Left Behind. <br /> Standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators and experts and are also internationally benchmarked.
  • Currently, 43 states and 3 territories have formally adopted the standards and are developing timelines for implementing them within the schools. Not adopted: Virginia, Texas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Alaska. Nebraska, Oklahoma repealed.
  • Districts and states have different implementation timelines. Share where your school/district is in terms of CCSS implementation with a partner…
  • Ah-ha. Lesson 7 is about nonverbal communication, so it doesn’t hit the reading/writing standards. (It does, incidentally, hit 10 other standards – mostly relating to language, media, and social studies.)

  • Just to be clear about what the CCSS are NOT… <br /> They do not tell teachers how to teach. <br /> They do not cover everything you need for College & Career Readiness…only ELA & Math

  • Currently 29 courses (excludes AOE, which is PLTW/STEM101). 27 have crosswalks.
  • Here’s one of the crosswalk docs, with a blow-up of the standards grid. Lists CCSS on the left, course lessons across the top.
  • Notice what is going on with lesson 6 – meets multiple standards in the Reading Informational Text category. <br /> Let’s look at lesson 6…
  • And let’ specifically drill down to one of the reading standards that this lesson meets…standard 4 under Reading Informational Text.
  • Here’s the text of the standard…
  • Here’s the lesson overview. <br /> Ah-ha. It’s a lesson in professional writing. Students learn about professional writing techniques, critique sample business letters, edit writing samples, and write their own communications. Lots of opportunities for CCSS evidence.
  • In fact, here’s one of the specific assignments…it’s a sample business email that students need to review and highlight parts that can be improved.
  • Here’s the answer key for the business email analysis activity.
  • So that was lesson six….
  • Notice what is going on with lesson 7…no standards are met for reading informational text.
  • Ah-ha. Lesson 7 is about nonverbal communication. Students learn about, interpret, and practice nonverbal communication. <br /> Therefore, it doesn’t hit the reading standards for informational text. <br /> It does, incidentally, hit 10 other standards – mostly relating to language, media, and social studies.

  • How to navigate to the NAF Curriculum Library <br /> <br /> Visit www.NAF.org <br /> At the top toolbar, choose “My NAF Login”
  • Presenter explains that all of the NAF correlations to the Common Core State Standards can be found on the NAF Curriculum Library website. <br /> <br /> Presenter walks participants through the Curriculum Library to the correlations. <br /> Presenter explains that all courses contain correlations to the standards.
  • The Common Core State Standards home page features current information about state adoptions; the website also features a host of multimedia presentations about the standards as well as a detailed FAQ about the standards. <br /> <br /> Clicking the “About the Standards” link takes you to a page which highlights the standards, including the Key Points discussed in this presentation.
  • This link is to a white paper that discusses the advantages that academy programs (called “linked learning” here – CA initiative) have in implementing the CCSS
  • The Achieve the Core site allows you to select your role, subject, and grade level to find CCSS aligned lessons and resources <br />
  • NY was one of the first states to implement. Engage NY has great resources including videos of CCSS aligned lessons in action <br />
  • If you’re looking for parent resources look here...
  • The Common Career Technical Core (CCTC) is a state-led initiative to establish a set of rigorous, high-quality standards for Career Technical Education (CTE) that states can adopt voluntarily; currently, 42 states have adopted the CCTC. The standards have been informed by state and industry standards and developed by a diverse group of teachers, business and industry experts, administrators and researchers. <br /> <br /> The CCTC includes a set of standards for each of the 16 Career Clusters™ and their corresponding Career Pathways that define what students should know and be able to do after completing instruction in a program of study. Some of the Career Pathways mirror NAF Academies and include Business Management and Administration, Finance, Health Science, and Hospitality and Tourism.
  • Final discussion: How will you get your team involved in standards implementation? What are your next steps?
