Everyone has a copy of the CC. You also have a folder with handouts we will use today.
Everyone has a copy. Provide some background on the book. ELA received Character Education grant money to design a project that would promote character education in all schools across North Carolina. High school writers, artists and teachers from each region in the state came together for a 3 day residency with writer Susie Wilde and Peg Gignoux to write and illustrate a book for elementary and middle school students on the 8 Character Educations traits. Books have been distributed to each elementary and middle school all across the state.
Before we get started, it is important for you to get to know your table partners. We are going to do an activity to get to know one another. After that, we will play a game so you can get to know your CCSS document.
Opening Activity – use sticky notes at your tables Share out sample words and definitions
Our overarching goals for the day are to provide you with time to collaborate with colleagues on implementation of the Common Core State Standards, how the Instructional Shifts align to the Standards, as well as, what they look like in classroom practice. Throughout the day, we will engage in activities on key components of an effective lesson.
Other icons you will see today are: pieces of lesson design, NC Educator Evaluation System, and data literacy.
Tomorrow, you will have an opportunity to design a lesson using the pieces of the puzzle.
Throughout the day you will see this icon on a number of slides which will mean that the content addresses these standards in the NC Educator Evaluation System.
You will see this icon on a number of slides which will mean that the content addresses the need for data gathering and analysis.
We want to draw your attention to the posters around the room as a reminder when we ask you to annotate, this is what we mean.
Sample annotation Notice the notes and circles…the reader is engaged with the writer through annotation.
Do only 5 and explain that they can play on their own and even create their own for use during their pd. We have provided you with a copy of the Common Core State Standards. We will briefly review the contents of the document and how it is organized. We are going to play a quick game of Jeopardy to review the key components of this document. The purpose of this tool is to ensure familiarity with the organization of this document during your professional development. Close your laptops for this game. Whole group share out.
