  • P. 1 of handout, review objectives and frame the day
  • So, why do we focus on project/problem-based? Refer to examples from previous sharing. Conclusion: PBL is an instructional strategy (not the only one, but a powerful one) that brings together (almost) all of the elements associated with powerful and engaging learning experiences.Stuff like:Inquiry driven – becomes the students’ problemAuthentic – complex, real world product, performance, service or solutionPersonalized – differentiated based on students’ motivation and skillsAnd lastly, though maybe not mentioned, when properly designed: Standards driven – timely and identifies level of mastery
  • A. Discuss in small groups and report out the levels of integration in for each discipline
  • Overview of development process on p. 2
  • Reattach video from hard drive, if necessary…Right-click on video screenOpen “Properties” menuIn the “URL” row, type in location of video on your hard driveIn the “fullscreen” row, set to “True” (you need to reset to “True” everytime you test or play the video)
  • A. Discuss in small groups and report out the levels of integration in for each discipline
  • Project is the blueprint, not the desired result
  • Teachers usually start with topics based on textbook or course outlines provided by district, or with standards, providing by state and pacing guides(Remind that standards need to be written out)But we really want to end up looking at what students are actually being asked to demonstrate – the performance measures make the best map Where do you think your subject area teachers are with this task?
  • Activities in the project must allow students to demonstrate the desired level of learning
  • Template sample on p. 12Granularity of map can vary – this by week
  • Where do you think your subject area teachers are with this task?
  • See example on page 13 of handoutYou can look for connections based on skillsAND on content
  • See example on page 13 of handoutYou can look for connections based on skillsAND on content
  • Subject area specialists work together on one month of performance map, and they put their stuff together. Compare level of performance and language used. These need to be aligned for map to be helpful. How can you get teacher teams to agree on this?

  • Essential questions are what drive the instruction. They set up the need-to-know situations that make learning relevant and engaging for students. But their other, equally important goal, is to connect the context of the project to the underlying, standards-based content.
  • In a forensics unit, a common essential question that shapes the unit is asking about the crime: How can be bring Mr. Diaz’s murderer to justice? This seems like a simple question, but actually it’s very complex. There is a lot stuff involved in fully answering that question.
  • So you break it down. How do we bring Mr. Diaz’s murderer to justice? What does that entail? You need to know how do you go about investigating the crime. How can you be sure you got the right person? Once you’re sure, how are they prosecuted?
  • Each of these questions leads to more, and more specific sub-questions, which subject area teachers can use introduce and apply their content. How can we tell when the murder occurred? Newton’s Law of Cooling, an exponential equation, is often used to determine time of death. What does the crime scene tell us? angle of an entry wound, distance between footprints give can give information about physical characteristics of the perpetrator. How can we be sure we got the right person? How reliable are witnesses? Evaluating credibility is a concept in English language arts. These questions are how you link your standards to the larger project, so you need to be thoughtful about crafting an essential question that will be engaging and interesting for students yet still legitimately require the learning you need them to engage in.
  • Industry professionals, like Detective Holliday provide specialized industry content expertiseIndustry partners can suggest connections that may not be apparent to teacher teamStudents visit crime labStudents observe autopsyDetectives provide supplemental instruction, mentor students during investigationLawyer visits classroom to talk about courtroom proceduresLaw professionals serve on the jury during the “trial”Judges render verdictWeb designers evaluate final project to industry standardsForensic scientists evaluate site content
  • Strongly encourage starting the design process from standards, but keep in mind that data and local industry/community connections can also provide valuable information/opportunities for project ideas.

  • Introduction to Standards-based Curriculum Integration
    Part I and II
    Dr. Penni Hudis - Director of Pathway and Curriculum Development, ConnectED
    Kathleen Harris - Director of Coaching and Technical Assistance, ConnectED
    Rob Atterbury- Director of Professional Development, Connect Ed

    Partnering with NAF, NCAC, CASN, EDC
  • Objectives
    Recognize quality curriculum integration
    Identify levels and types
    Describe teacher roles
    Surface obstacles and explore solutions
    Access key resources
    3
  • Why integrated curriculum?
    Tap motivation
    FORCED TO…....NEED TO…….WANT TO
    You push…..They comply…..They seek
    Engage in meeting standards that are aligned with assessment expectations
    4
  • Why project based learning?
    PBL engages students in complex,
    real-world problem solving
    …is Academically Challenging
    …is Relevant
    …uses Active Learning

    Integrated Lesson and Project Quality Criteria
    7
  • Integrated curriculum design
    Curriculum/Performance mapping
    Connecting concept or theme
    Essential questions
    Performance assessments
    Industry partners
    Reflection and revision
    8
  • Integrated planning in action
    9
  • Integrated projects should be
    • Standards/performance driven –
    • Inquiry based
    • Authentic
    • Personalized
    10
  • ACTIVITY 2: Reflection Question 1

  • Begin with the end in mind
    ”All things are created twice:first mentally and then physically.The key to creativity is to begin with the end in mind, with a vision and a blueprint of the desired result.”
    Stephen R Covey
    12
  • What is the end?
    The project or activity
    The content topics
    Performance of standards

  • Unpacking the standards
    Uncover to determine:
    • Standard
    • Content/application
    • Skills to master (action verbs)
    • Demonstration of mastery
  • Unpacking the standards
    Verbs matter!
    Verbs establish the level of learning and drive the assessment methods
    Activities in the project should require students to acquire and/or demonstrate the desired level of mastery
