Transcript

  • 1. Model Core Curriculum Howard-Winn CSD
  • 2.  
  • 3. Overview
    • Literacy, Math, Science
    • Aligned to 4-3-3-3 requirement
    • Emphasizes Rigor ‘n Relevance
    • 21st century skills
  • 4. Key things to note
    • “ Model”, not “Mandatory”
    • Vague
    • Developing
    • House File 804 cut, Could be amended
    • Senate File???
    • Even then, would be vague and non-mandatory
  • 5. Intended Use …
  • 6. BAD PUN TIME!!!
  • 7. YOU CAN’T HAVE YOUR KAYAK AND HEAT IT TOO!
  • 8. Rigor and Relevance Framework Evaluation 6 Synthesis 5 Analysis 4 Application 3 Comprehension 2 Awareness 1 KNOWLEDGE APPLICATION C Assimilation D Adaptation A Acquisition B Application 1 2 3 4 5 Knowledge in one discipline Apply knowledge in one discipline Apply knowledge across disciplines Apply knowledge to real-world predictable situations Apply knowledge to real-world unpredictable situations
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11.  
  • 12.  
  • 13. Highlights: Overall
    • Interdisciplinary approach
    • Collaborative work and choice
    • Inductive reasoning
    • Application to real-world (contextual teaching)
  • 14. Highlights: Science
    • Emphasis = student inquiry
    • Eliminate lectures, readings, and “cookbook” labs
  • 15. Highlights: Literacy
    • More sophisticated levels
    • Includes “viewing”
    • All teachers must take ownership
  • 16. BAD PUN TIME!!!
  • 17. HE BECAME THE LESSER OF TWO WEEVILS
  • 18. Highlights: Math
    • Math is most developed
    • Essential Content (as does Literacy and Science)
    • Essential Skills
    • Essential Characteristics
  • 19. Essential Characteristics
    • A world-class mathematics curriculum should be built around and focused on these essential characteristics …
  • 20. Essential Characteristics
    • Teaching for understanding
    • Problem-based instructional tasks
    • Distributed practice that is meaningful and purposeful
    • Mathematical modeling
    • Deep conceptual and procedural knowledge
    • Rigor and relevance
    • Effective use of technology
    • Integrated content
  • 21. Teaching for Understanding
    • First and foremost, teaching mathematics for understanding is the basis of the world-class core curriculum in mathematics that all Iowa students deserve. We must shift from a teaching paradigm of “memorize and practice” to one of “understand and apply.”
  • 22. Essential Skills
    • Students need powerful skills to be successful in the globally competitive workforce of the 21st century. Business and industry demand workers who can solve problems, work in teams, and are able to apply learning to new and changing situations, especially as workers change jobs and careers many times in their lifetimes. Therefore, students must acquire powerful, flexible, and widely-applicable mathematical skills.
  • 23. Essential Skills
    • Problem solving
    • Communication
    • Reasoning and proof
    • Ability to recognize, make, and apply connections
    • Ability to construct and apply multiple connected representations
  • 24. Essential Topics
    • Serve to identify important mathematics
    • Provide a focus for curriculum design and instruction
    • Not a laundry list of objectives
    • Not “a mile wide and an inch deep”
    • Lay the foundation for future learning of math
    • Consistent with professional recommendations for mathematics standards
    • Consistent with professional experience in curriculum development and instruction
  • 25. BAD PUN TIME!!!
  • 26. YOU HAVE “CHESS NUTS BOASTING IN AN OPEN FOYER”
  • 27. Examples are Critical to Understand the Model Core Curriculum
    • Higher levels of cognitive knowledge
    • Deeper levels of understanding
    • Real world applications
    • Higher order thinking
    • Pathway to higher education and employment through thinking skills that transfer
  • 28. According to Sue Updegraff…
    • Howard-Winn is in good shape
    • What’s going on behind the classroom doors?
    • State is coming on strong
    • BLT’s taking a role
    • Principals - walk-thru’s
    • Teachers - posting “skills of the day”
  • 29. What’s next?
    • Expand to social studies, foreign language, health/wellness
    • 21st century = problem-solving, financial literacy, media literacy, critical thinking, technology
    • Expand K-12
    • Allocate state money
