  • Use Christy’s handout to record response 3 min
  • The CCSS initiative is an exiting opportunity for educational goals to be aligned across the US 48 states with the exception of… *****
  • These standards reflect global educational standards as the writers have used countries like, New Z, GB, AUS as resources. Part of international conversation – business community driving this - people who are really not ready for the workforce.
  • First activity Jot down the skills you feel a 21 st century literate person needs Share, add to silent marker wall (no repeats) Three Words ***
  • As we go through workshop jot down any ideas or questions.
  • Teachers will view video and identify examples of 21 st century skills being practiced.
  • Video—4 ½ min Think Pair Share
  • Flash Cards to review periodically! (3-4 min) I hyperlinked all the terms
  • 2-5 min
  • 2-3min overview
  • Stand up—have a seat if….one purpose of the CCS Scaffold questions as you proceed (5 min) Ask Learning Target Questions for review—get from slide.
  • 1-2 min Focus on 4 strands and these are expectations K-12 and ALL content areas
  • Read the intro pages 3-8 (ESL/EC skills- chunking/scaffolding info- reading with a purpose Stop and jot 5 most important facts Speak at your tables Narrow it further to 2 Add to the wall Three Words ***
  • 1 min
  • Fewer, clearer, higher It’s developmental and scaffolds student learning As we read through it U will see Internationally benchmarked – New Z, Aus, Singapore, Canada, Ireland, China ***
  • Remind about ESL skills/strategies
  • Pulling it all together—seeing how all the pieces work together to achieve goals. 1-2 min Reader’s Theater Choose /Assign strand to analyze –Literature progression 15 min

  • Get music –Christy get a clip!!
  • We’re going to talk about how the standards are organized
  • Prior Knowledge about text complexity -shout out 2min
  • ***
  • Appendix A includes a section on why text complexity matters and its connection to the reading STRAND How college texts have become increasingly complex How schools and classrooms have seen a decline in the rigor of having students read complex texts independently It also includes a section on consequences and an explanation to measuring text complexity – which we will work with today. It ends with a glossary ***
  • 2 min
  • Find the text complexity analysis template in your AUSSIE folder Read page 11-12 in appendix A Three words ***
  • Keep this 10-15 min.

    4. 4. What are the learning targets for morning? To LITERACY and beyond!
    5. 5. What is the Common Core Standard Initiative? * Pre-Assessment- 1 through 4 The Common Core State Standard Initiative is a significant and historic opportunity for states to collectively develop and adopt a core set of standards in Mathematics and English Language Arts including literacy standards for Science and Social Studies and Technology
    6. 6. Who is Participating? <ul><li>Forty eight states , Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have signed on to the Common Core State Standards Initiative led by the National Governors Association Center and the Council of Chief State School Officers. </li></ul><ul><li>This initiative will potentially reach 43.5 million students which is about 87% of the total student population. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Source--SchoolDataDirect.org 2007 </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    7. 7. “ Silent Marker” Activity <ul><li>On your own, please write down the skills and understandings (at least 3) you believe a twenty-first century literate person needs to have. </li></ul><ul><li>Share with the whole group on the “silent “marker wall </li></ul>
    8. 8. Throughout the workshop… Please record on Post-its: Ideas that come to mind for your instructional practice. Places where I can improve the workshop. Questions you have during the workshop . . Any sidebars you just can’t wait for . . .
