Common core and global education

  1. 1. Global Education and the Common Core Honor Moorman
  2. 2. Four Domains of Global Competence
  3. 3. Investigate the World with Common Core ELA: Ask students to conduct original research into topics that have an impact beyond the local community and providing access to international sources. Math: Pose a globally relevant problem that requires the use of mathematical reasoning to develop an argument to address.
  4. 4. Mission Statement “The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.”

  7. 7. ELA and Literacy: Research “To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new. The need to conduct research and to produce and consume media is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum.” (CCSS ELA & Literacy, p. 4)
  8. 8. Anchor Standards: Writing Research to Build and Present Knowledge 7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
  9. 9. Anchor Standards: Writing Research to Build and Present Knowledge 8. Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
  10. 10. Standards for Mathematical Practice Analysis and Argumentation 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. • “analyze situations” • “justify their conclusions” • make “plausible arguments”
  11. 11. Investigate the World • “identify and weigh relevant evidence” • “analyze, integrate, and synthesize evidence” • “develop an argument based on compelling evidence . . . and draw defensible conclusions” + • focus on questions of global significance • consult a variety of sources, including international sources
  12. 12. Research, Analysis, and Argumentation Investigate the World
  13. 13. Investigate the World with Common Core ELA: Ask students to conduct original research into topics that have an impact beyond the local community and providing access to international sources. Math: Pose a globally relevant problem that requires the use of mathematical reasoning to develop an argument to address.
  14. 14. Recognize Perspectives “Sometimes the world seems upside down” CC by jen_maiser via Flickr
  15. 15. Students who are college and career ready in reading, writing, speaking, liste ning, and language . . .
  16. 16. . . . come to understand other perspectives and cultures “Students appreciate that the twentyfirst-century classroom and workplace are settings in which people from often widely divergent cultures and who represent diverse experiences and perspectives must learn and work together. Students actively seek to understand other perspectives and cultures through reading and listening, and they are able to communicate effectively with people of varied backgrounds. . . .
  17. 17. . . . come to understand other perspectives and cultures . . . They evaluate other points of view critically and constructively. Through reading great classic and contemporary works of literature representative of a variety of periods, cultures, and worldviews, students can vicariously inhabit worlds and have experiences much different than their own.” (CCSS ELA & Literacy, p. 7)
  18. 18. Recognize Perspectives • “recognize and express their own perspective” • “examine perspectives of other people, groups, or schools of thought” + • “identify the influences” on his or her own perspectives and on the perspectives of others • “explain how cultural interactions influence situations, events, issues or phenomena”
  19. 19. Understand other perspectives and cultures Recognize Perspectives
  20. 20. Recognize Perspectives with Common Core Ask students to interview others about their perspective on a given topic or global issue. Analyze the perspective of an author or public figure, and then compare and contrast that to their own individual perspective on the given topic or global issue.
  21. 21. Communicate Ideas “42601677.10” CC by torres21 via Flickr
  22. 22. Anchor Standards: Writing Production and Distribution of Writing 4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
  23. 23. Anchor Standards: Writing Production and Distribution of Writing 6. Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.
  24. 24. ELA: Speaking and Listening Flexible communication and collaboration “. . . require students to develop a range of broadly useful oral communication and interpersonal skills. Students must learn to work together, express and listen carefully to ideas, integrate information from oral, visual, quantitative, and media sources, evaluate what they hear, use media and visual displays strategically to help achieve communicative purposes, and adapt speech to context and task.” (CCSS ELA & Literacy, p. 8)
  25. 25. Anchor Standards: Speaking and Listening Comprehension and Collaboration 1. Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
  26. 26. Anchor Standards: Speaking and Listening Comprehension and Collaboration 2. Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
  27. 27. Anchor Standards: Speaking and Listening Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas 4. Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
  28. 28. Anchor Standards: Speaking and Listening Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas 5. Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.
  29. 29. Anchor Standards: Speaking and Listening Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas 6. Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate.
  30. 30. Standards for Mathematical Practice Analysis and Argumentation 3. Construct viable arguments . . . • “build a logical progression of statements to explore the truth of their conjectures” • “justify their conclusions, communicate them to others, and respond to the arguments of others” • “making plausible arguments that take into account the context from which the data arose”
  31. 31. Communicate Ideas • “communicate their ideas effectively with diverse audiences” + • “recognize and express how diverse audiences may perceive different meanings from the same information” • “reflect on how effective communication affects understanding and collaboration”
  32. 32. Writing, Collaborating, Presenti ng Knowledge and Ideas Communicate Ideas
  33. 33. Communicate Ideas with Common Core Facilitate discussions on how the same message can be understood differently by different individuals and groups Ask students to reflect on, and write about or discuss, the importance of effective communication to successful collaboration with others from different backgrounds, cultures, and nations
  34. 34. Take Action “On the other side” CC by EmsiProduction via Flickr
  35. 35. Taking action on issues of global significance requires The ability to communicate information and ideas clearly through . . . • narrative or informational writing • formal presentation, • or mathematical representation
  36. 36. Skills & competencies required for college & careers • • • • • • Reading Writing Speaking Listening Language Mathematics “lay the foundation to develop students with the capacity to take action to improve conditions in their local community, state, the country, and the world” “Common Core: Preparing Globally Competent Citizens” by Margaret Reed Millar
  37. 37. Standards for Mathematics Application “The middle school and high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges.” (Common Core website, “Myths vs. Facts” page)
  38. 38. Standards for Mathematical Practice Modeling 4. “mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.”
  39. 39. Mathematics: Modeling Examples include • Estimating how much water and food is needed for emergency relief in a devastated city of 3 million people, and how it might be distributed. • Analyzing risk in situations such as extreme sports, pandemics, and terrorism. • Relating population statistics to individual predictions. (CCSS Mathematics, p. 72)
  40. 40. Common Core State Standards Take Action
  41. 41. Take Action with Common Core • Math: Pose a globally relevant problem that requires the use of mathematical reasoning to develop an argument to address. • ELA: Ask students to conduct original research into topics that have an impact beyond the local community and providing access to international sources.
