  • IntroductionsClassrooms in CT are in the midst of a significant instructional transition. Perhaps you have heard a little bit about NCLB, CCSS, SBAC, SRBI, SBR and others and are wondering what does all of this mean? Sounds like alphabet soup! Hopefully tonight’s presentation will answer some of your questions and help to make things a little bit clearer.
  • Let’s start with the Common Core State Standards. Mission or Objective of the CCSS:
  • Simply put: The standards represent what every student should know and be able to demonstrate by the end of each grade level.CT adoption
  • 1st: Standards were not clear and they were not consistent across the nation or with other countries that our students will compete against in college and career.Research: US has the highest percentage of high school graduates going off to college.US has one of the lowest percentage of college students completing a degree program.An alarming high percentage of all college freshmen are required to take a prerequisite class prior to registering in English and Math 101.Working backwards – what skills do students need in order to successful in college and careers. What does education look like in top-performing countries?That informed the creation of CCSS
  • We need for our children to be prepared to succeed in a global economy.We need our children to acquire high level skills in reading, writing, speaking……We need our children to apply knowledge across many different settings and be able to problem solve, be creative, think out of the box….
  • The new CCSS are rigorous, they require students to think, communicate, problem solve, work cooperatively with others….Real world skills. At each grade level, there less standards taught before but they are taught to mastery. Previously, curriculum was a mile long and an inch deep, now fewer topics are studied in greater depth.
  • Reading – More non-fiction informative text. Less focus on fiction. Move away from literal (who, what, when, where questions) about text – shift towards in-depth understanding about what is being read. Inferences, cause and effect… Text are chosen to match or exceed a students reading level – shift away from the one size fits all, middle of the road selection of materials. Close Reading –students need to find and support their answers from evidence from the text. Writing – A shift away from the prescribed prompt writing we’ve seen in the past to authentic writing. Think about your own writing you are either explaining a topic, telling a story or presenting and argument backed up by evidence. Speaking and Listening:A strong focus on developing students’ academic vocabulary, research and presentations. Real life- research a topic, talk the talk and present in a manner that is convincing and informational.In Orange, our focus is on ELA this year. Standards reviewWorking with a consultant to design CCSS lessonsDeveloping assessments
  • Years ago, we had a pendulum swing supporting computational fluency and procedural skill but topics were taught so quickly there was little understanding. (multiplication example)Then, in the 90s, the pendulum shifted the other direction towards developing deep understanding of mathematics and little emphasis was put on computation fluency. I’m glad to report that both those expectations are part of the new CCSS. Most importantly, students are required to solve real world problems by engaging in discourse with each other to communicate their understanding. Our new math program – Math Expressions was chosen with all of this in mind. It is aligned to the CCSS, promotes deep understanding and computational fluency, and plans for collaboration among students to problem solve and communicate thinking.
  • Math is not just about numbers and algorithms. It is more about habits of mind. In order to be a successful problem solver, students need to successfully demonstrate these habits or practices.
  • You can learn more…SDE website
  • PTA organization created Roadmaps, these are also available on the oess website under curriculum. What your child needs to know at each grade level with examples and ways in which you can help them. A Common Core app is available for free at the App Store.
  • New standards call for new assessments. The NEW CMT…SBAC Where CMT measured students’ performance in relation to grade level expectations, SBAC measures student progress toward college and career readiness.SBAC and PARC
  • What’s different about SBAC.
  • SDE still working out the kinks. Will we be ready to take the test in spring. Computers – Tech Readiness Tool. On-line assessment, adaptive meaning that it “trees” up or down levels as the student completes the test.Let’s look at some of the examples and then talk a bit about the implications to teaching and learning. Class activity followed by a performance task
  • Selected Response items prompt students to select one or more responses for a set of options. As an example, this item asks students to select the single best response.This type of selected response item is referred to as a multiple-choice item.
  • Other selected response items may ask students to select more than one option. As an example, this item asks students to identify all of the properties of a rectangle. CMT – identify the shape or draw a rectangle and explain why. This question requires a much deeper understanding of geometric shapes.
  • Constructed response items prompt students to produce a text or numerical response in order to collect evidence about their knowledge or understanding of a given assessment target. As an example, this item asks students to produce a response that provides evidence about their ability to add and subtract.
  • In some cases, the evidence required to support a claim about a given assessment target necessitates a more extended response. As an example, this item prompts students to provide evidence about their understanding of perimeter and area by producing an extended response.
  • In still other cases, the evidence required to support a claim must be collected through a task for which a student performs multiple actions. For each action, a response is provided. The set of responses are then used to support a claim about student understanding or ability. In these cases, a Performance Task is necessary. A Performance Task is used to assess a set of assessment targets as opposed to a narrow focus on just one or two targets, as is typically the case with selected and constructed response items. As an example, this performance task contains multiple parts, each designed to collect specific types of evidence that are combined to make a claim about student ability to read, synthesize, and communicate in writing.There will be more about each type of item and task in separate modules.
  • The Smarter Balanced assessment system is designed to be administered on computers. For this reason, the assessment system aims to capitalize on the power of computers by employing technology rich items. Technology rich items fall into two broad categories, Technology-Enabled and Technology-Enhanced.Technology-Enabled items make use of multimedia and interactive elements to stimulate the assessment target measured by an item. Technology-Enabled items either collect responses from students by requiring them to select one or more responses or by producing text or numerals. As an example, this item plays a speech for studentsand asks them to select an option in response to the prompt.Similarly, other items ask students to experiment with interactive tools, like a random sample generator, and then prompt them to produce text-based responses.In these examples, the technology enables the use of a media rich stimulus, but does not produce a new way of providing a response.
  • In contrast, a Technology-Enhanced item capitalizes on technology to collect evidence through a non-traditional response type. As an example, this item presents a sonnet and prompts students to highlight evidence in the poem that reveal a change in the speaker’s message.
  • Check out the practice tests.Implications to our district:# of computersHeadsetsTimeComputer skillsContentHigher order thinking skills
  • New standards, new assessments require a new way to report out on those standards.Orange has had a standards based report card for a number of years. (IWPB) Need to align to CCSS. Each subject is expanded to address many standards (collapsed into our report card standards)Committee work – Math and LA
  • On every report card
  • SS and Science standards address content as well as process.
  • Content, application of skillsEvaluates using academic vocabularyExhibits responsible behaviorsDemonstrates Effort
  • Aligned to our program at each marking period.
  • This page will display all the abscenses and tardies for your children as well as their grades when they are entered into the grade book by their teacher.
  • ON this page you will be able to view your child's past grades for the year.
  • This page will show you the child’s attendance for the year.
  • On this page you will be able to select which alerts you would like to receive about your child. This page will pertain only to grades and attendance.
  • This is the page for our new alert system which replaced the one call now program. On this page you will need to select which messages you will want to receive and how you want to receive them. You will be able to update all fo your contact info through this page. There is no need to contact to the school if you get a new cell # or email address.
  • This page will show you what your username and password are as well as what email address is linked to your account. We have the ability to work with Pam Loh the ESL coordinator and add additional languages as necessary
  • This tab will show which child is linked to this account. You can have multiple children linked to one parent account.
  • This tab is designed to provide information on what standards are, why we use standards, which standards are being assessed to your child and some FAQs by parents.
  • Classrooms in CT are in the midst of a significant instructional transition.

    2. 2. Common Core State Standards The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) 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.
    3. 3. Common Core State Standards What are they? STANDARDS What every student should know and be able to do by the end of each grade level Since July 2010, CT and 44 other states have adopted the CCSS
    4. 4. Common Core State Standards Why did CT adopt the CCSS? CCSS are aligned with college and career expectations in the 21st Century CCSS are informed by the education of top-performing countries
    5. 5. Common Core State Standards How will CCSS help our children? Prepare them to succeed in a global economic society Prepare them to apply knowledge and actively solve problems Provide consistent focus on high level skills: reading, writing, speaking, listening & language
    6. 6. Common Core State Standards http://vimeo.com/51933492
    7. 7. Common Core State Standards English Language Arts (ELA) What are the learning expectations? READING: As grades advance, more non-fiction (information) texts More complex texts within each grade level Asking and answering in-depth questions about what is read Close Reading to find evidence to answer questions WRITING: Argument-taking a side on an issue and backing it up with evidence Explanatory-explaining a topic Narrative-telling a story SPEAKING AND LISTENING: Research to build knowledge/present knowledge to others Academic vocabulary Opportunities to speak and take part in discussions
    8. 8. Common Core State Standards Mathematics Grades K-8 What are the learning expectations? Build deep understanding, not just procedural skill Develop fluency (speed and comfort) in computation, measurement, and ratios and proportional reasoning Apply mathematical understanding by solving real world problems and actively discussing solutions.
    9. 9. Common Core State Standards Students learn eight practices (behaviors, habits of mind, etc.) necessary to become successful problem solvers. These practices are the same from grades K-12, but are applied to more demanding problems as students move up to each grade level. Mathematical Practices Make sense and persevere in solving problems Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments and critiques the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
    10. 10. Smarter Balanced Consortium Assessment The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) is a state-led consortium working to develop next-generation assessments that accurately measure student progress toward college- and career-readiness. Smarter Balanced is one of two multistate consortia awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 to develop an assessment system aligned to the Common Core State Standards by the 2014-15 school year.
    11. 11. Smarter Balanced Consortium Assessment 1. Aligned to the CCSS 2. Provide parents & students more accurate and actionable information about what kids are learning. 3. Computer adaptive 4. Provide better information about the needs and successes of individual students 5. Present a clearer picture on whether students are on the right track to graduate high school, attend college or ready to join the workplace
    12. 12. Smarter Balanced Consortium Assessment SBAC Components Performance tasks Comprehensive computer adaptive assessment
    13. 13. Many experts will tell you that television is bad for you. Yet this is an exaggeration. Many television programs today are specifically geared towards improving physical fitness, making people smarter, or teaching them important things about the world. The days of limited programming with little interaction are gone. Public television and other stations have shows about science, history, and technical topics. Which sentence should be added to the paragraph to state the author’s main claim? A. Watching television makes a person healthy. B. Watching television can be a sign of intelligence. C. Television can be a positive influence on people. D. Television has more varied programs than ever before. Selected Response Single Response – Multiple Choice
    14. 14. Selected Response Multiple Correct Options Which of the following statements is a property of a rectangle? Select all that apply. ☐ Contains three sides ☐ Contains four sides ☐ Contains eight sides ☐ Contains two sets of parallel lines ☐ Contains at least one interior angle that is acute ☐ Contains at least one interior angle that is obtuse ☐ All interior angles are right angles ☐ All sides have the same length ☐ All sides are of different length
    15. 15. Constructed Response The table below shows the number of students in each third-grade class at Lincoln School. There are 105 fourth-grade students at Lincoln School. How many more fourth-grade students than third-grade students are at Lincoln School? Show or explain how you found your answer.
    16. 16. Constructed Response Extended Response Ms. McCrary wants to make a rabbit pen in a section of her lawn. Her plan for the rabbit pen includes the following: • It will be in the shape of a rectangle. • It will take 24 feet of fence material to make. • Each side will be longer than 1 foot. • The length and width will measure whole feet. Part A Draw 3 different rectangles that can each represent Ms. McCrary’s rabbit pen. Be sure to use all 24 feet of fence material for each pen. Use the grid below. Click the places where you want the corners of your rectangle to be. Draw one rectangle at a time. If you make a mistake, click on your rectangle to delete it. Continue as many times as necessary. Use your keyboard to type the length and width of each rabbit pen you draw. Then type the area of each rabbit pen. Be sure to select the correct unit for each answer. [Students will input length, width, and area for each rabbit pen. Students will choose unit from drop down menu.] Pen 1: Length: (feet, square feet) Width: (feet, square feet) Area: (feet, square feet) Part B Ms. McCrary wants her rabbit to have more than 60 square feet of ground area inside the pen. She finds that if she uses the side of her house as one of the sides of the rabbit pen, she can make the rabbit pen larger. • Draw another rectangular rabbit pen. • Use all 24 feet of fencing for 3 sides of the pen. • Use one side of the house for the other side of the pen. • Make sure the ground area inside the pen is greater than 60 square feet. Use the grid below. Click the places where you want the corners of your rectangle to be. If you make a mistake, click on your rectangle to delete it. Pen 2: Length: (feet, square feet) Width: (feet, square feet) Area: (feet, square feet) Pen 3: Length: (feet, square feet) Width: (feet, square feet) Area: (feet, square feet) Use your keyboard to type the length and width of each rabbit pen you draw. Then type the area of each rabbit pen. Be sure to select the correct unit for each answer. Length: (feet, square feet) Width: (feet, square feet) Area: (feet, square feet)

    18. 18. Technology-Enabled Selected or Constructed Responses that include Multimedia Brianna is running for class president. She needs to give a speech to the 4th grade class. Listen to the draft of her speech and then answer the questions that follow. (Test-takers listen to an audio version of the following speech.) “Hi, My name is Brianna. I am running for class president, and I hope you will vote for me. You know many of my friends said they would. I am involved in many activities, including track and theater. If I am elected, I will hold several fundraisers so that all students in the 4th grade can go on a trip at the end of the year. Also, we can donate a portion of the money to a charity of our choice. If you want a class president who will work hard for you and listen to your needs, please vote for me next week!” This speech needs to be revised before the student presents it. Which sentence should be omitted to improve the speech. A. I am running for class president, and I hope you will vote for me. B. You know many of my friends said they would. C. If I am elected, I will hold several fundraisers so that all students in the 4th grade can go on a trip at the end of the year. D. If you want a class president who will work hard for you and listen to your needs, please vote for me next week!”
    19. 19. Technology-Enhanced Collects Evidence through a Non-Traditional Response Below is a poem, a sonnet, in which the speaker discusses her feelings about a relationship. Read the poem and answer the question that follows. Remember by Christina Rossetti Remember me when I am gone away, Gone far away into the silent land; When you can no more hold me by the hand, Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay. Remember me when no more day by day 5 You tell me of our future that you planned: Only remember me; you understand It will be late to counsel then or pray. Yet if you should forget me for a while And afterwards remember, do not grieve: 10 For if the darkness and corruption leave A vestige* of the thoughts that once I had, Better by far you should forget and smile Than that you should remember and be sad. In the sonnet “Remember,” which two lines reveals a change in the speaker’s message to her subject?
