  • Our goal is to have every student graduate ready for the challenges of the 21st Century.21st Century Learners have: the actions, attitudes, concepts and skills that will allow students to effectively communicate, collaborate and create. These are the skills, knowledge and expertise students should master in order to succeed in work and life in the 21st century. Well developed 21st Century Learners have specific capacities in: Creativity and InnovationCommunication and CollaborationCritical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision MakingDigital CitizenshipResearch and Information FluencyTechnology Operations and ConceptsEffective 21st Century Educators offer authentic, relevant learning experiences that support the development of these skills.Toward the development of these outcomes – the Common Core movement began.Today we’ll be thinking about how skilled teachers create 21st Century classrooms.
  • The NCPTS describe what teachers should know and be able to do in 21st Century classrooms.This is the basis for the teacher candidate and teacher evaluation toolsLink on Wiki
  • Total time 20 minutesSupplies: 10 pieces of chart paper and markersDirections:Create small groups (10 groups so that each standard is done twice and no group is too big) and assign each group a standard, 1-5. Each group is given a piece of chart paper to create a poster of the NC Teacher Evaluation Standards 1 through 5. The group is to focus on the gist of the NCPTS so they recognize what the actual standard is about. They can create a visual, a song, a poem, a “tweet,” a text message, or any other “right-brain” conceptualization of the standard. After about 7 minutes, everyone walks around the room to see all of the posters. One person who helped create that poster stays with the poster to answer questions as others come to see it. Participants bring sticky notes and write one piece of feedback for each poster.Use the next slide to facilitate discussion and sharing of posters.
  • All of the ratings for the NC Teacher Evaluation Process are defined on page 4 of the manual. On this slide, you will note that we have bolded some of the words. Let’s look at the bolded words as we look at each rating category. For example, a rating of “developing” indicates that the teacher, while showing growth, did not demonstrate basic competence. A rating of “proficient” indicates the teacher demonstrated basic competence. “Accomplished” ratings indicate that the teacher exceeded basic competence most of the time. And a rating of “Distinguished” would indicate that the teacher consistently and significantly exceeded basic competence.

And a rating of “Distinguished” would indicate that the teacher consistently and significantly exceeded basic competence.
  • This is a screen shot of page 33, where a principal has marked the rubric based on an observation. It is necessary to notate the rubric for each observation. The rating for each descriptor is the lowest rating for which all descriptors are marked. As illustrated in the exampleon pages 33 and 34, the teacher would be rated as Developing on “Teachers lead in their classrooms” even thoughat least one descriptor for Proficient, Accomplished, and Distinguished was marked. This is because Developing isthe lowest rating for which all descriptors were marked. Likewise, the teacher also would be rated as Proficient on“Teachers demonstrate leadership in the school” and on each of the remaining elements. This is likely to result in anoverall rating of Proficient for Standard I.Overall ratings should not be determined until the end of the year during the Summary Evaluation Conference.
  • Sometimes analogies help us better understand the ratings. Some of you have been in our regional training sessions where we discussed growing levels of competency with using a smart phone or the gadgets on a new car.Today, let’s think about how the ratings would apply to baking cakes.As a developing cake baker, you follow the recipe, but your cooking techniques aren’t always successful. Your cake might be dry, the layers may fall apart, or the icing isn’t the right consistency. You demonstrate growth by practicing and your cakes become better, although still not quite right. Look at the picture. This is a cake, and perhaps it is a better cake than the baker’s many previous attempts. However, this cake would still be unacceptable from a professional baker. This reminds us educationally of a teacher who, despite making growth, has not yet reached proficiency.As a proficient cake baker, you follow the recipe and you’ve mastered the basic cooking techniques. You are able to produce a basic layer cake with frosting that tastes good and looks nice. The cake pictured is acceptable by all measures, which reminds us educationally of basic competence with such important matters as instructional strategies or communication. In other words, this cake is acceptable and yet still has room to grow. Let’s look at the next cake from the accomplished baker.As an accomplished cake baker, you have a greater understanding of baking and on most occasions you are able to successfully incorporate additional ingredients and/or flavorings that improve the taste, appearance, and overall quality of your cakes. You’ll note that the cake pictured has multiple flavors, which reminds us educationally of differentiation and multiple instructional strategies.As a distinguished cake baker, you have an in-depth understanding of baking cakes. As such, you know the essential ingredients that must be included in all cakes. Using your knowledge, you are able to begin with the recipe, combining the essential ingredients and other add-ins to tailor your cakes to meet the tastes of the person for which you are making the cake. In other words, you understand the recipe well enough to enhance it. Your talent and skill as a distinguished baker may lead you to decorate exquisitely or even assist others in developing their baking skills. Distinguished truly is the “icing on the cake” so-to-speak. What resources do you have to help you and your teachers better understand the differences between the ratings for teachers and school executives? Your best resources are the rubrics for evaluating teachers and principals/assistant principals. The performance descriptors provided for each element of the performance standards will help you determine the expectation for each rating level. Engage in conversations with colleagues about the differences between the descriptors on the rubrics. It’s also helpful to have a firm understanding of the Standards for Teachers and School Executives. If you need a refresher on the professional standards, consider completing the N.C. Professional Teaching Standards Module and the soon-to-be-released School Executive Standards Module. --------------------------------------------------------Cake imageshttp://ellie-sparks.livejournal.com/3021.htmlhttp://www.shoveitinyourface.com/2011/02/chocolate-and-golden-vanilla-triple.htmlhttp://find-how.com/Cake-recipe.html
  • Eliz will update Educator Effectiveness section
  • An educator status is a more holistic picture of educator effectiveness than any one standard taken alone. Three years of data must be in place before a teacher or administrator can receive a status of in need of improvement, effective, or highly effective.
  • Please take 10 minutes to reflect and generate a list of 3 ideas as described in the shapes
  • UNCP CTC Presentation Jan 2013

    1. 1. The Relationship between NC TeacherCandidate Evaluations & the NC Educator Evaluation System Dr. Rachel A. McBroom January 11, 2013 http://rt3region4.ncdpi.wikispaces.net
    2. 2. Expected OutcomesAt the end of this session, participants will…• Understand the role of the Framework for 21st Century Learning and the N.C. Professional Teaching Standards in achieving the mission of the N.C. State Board of Education and N.C.D.P.I.’s READY initiative.• Understand the relationship between the Teacher Candidate Evaluation Rubric, the LEA/IHE Certification of Teaching Capacity, and the Teacher Evaluation Rubric.
    3. 3. Digital DisclaimerThe digital tools used during the course of this traininghave been helpful to some educators across thestate. However, due to the rapidly changing digitalenvironment, NCDPI does not represent nor endorse thatthese tools are the exclusive digital tools for the purposesoutlined during this session.
    4. 4. Quick Tour of NCDPI WikiCentral http://wikicentral.ncdpi.wikispaces.net/NC DPI+WikiCentral+Page
    5. 5. State Board of Education Mission Every public school student will graduate from high school, globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21st Century. -Adopted August 2006
    6. 6. Getting to READYRace to the Top Pillars•Great Teachers & Principals•Data Systems to ImproveInstruction•Turning Around Lowest-PerformingSchools•Quality Standards & Assessments
    7. 7. 21st Century Skills: What’s the big deal?• Describe what 21st Century Skills means to you in 20 characters or less …(submit your answer through the interactive agenda)• P21 Above & Beyond
    8. 8. 21st Century Outcomes
    9. 9. NC Professional Teaching Standards
    10. 10. NC Professional Teaching Standards Standard II: Standard I: Teachers Establish a Standard III:Teachers Demonstrate Respectful Environment Teachers Know the Leadership for a Diverse Population Content They Teach of Students Standard IV: Standard VI: Standard V: Teachers Facilitate Teachers Contribute to Teachers Reflect on their Learning for Their the Academic Success of Practice Students Students
    11. 11. Conceptualize the Standards• Review and discuss the standard assigned to your group.• On chart paper, conceptualize the standard in a creative way. For example, you might create a visual, a song, a poem, a “tweet,” a text message, or any other “right-brain” conceptualization of the standard.
    12. 12. But what about Standard 6? Standard 6 incorporates measures of Student Growth (much like your TCWS)
    13. 13. Ratings for Pre-Service Candidates • Demonstrated exemplary understanding, mastery, andAccomplished consistent integration of educational concepts and skills. • Demonstrated the ability to apply Proficient educational concepts consistently in real-world contexts • Demonstrated the ability to apply Developing educational concepts to concrete problems within limited contexts • Demonstrated limited or superficial Emerging knowledge and awareness of educational concepts
    14. 14. Ratings for In-Service Teacher Standards 1-5 • Consistently and significantly Distinguished exceeded basic competence • Exceeded basic competence most Accomplished of the time Proficient • Demonstrated basic competence • Demonstrated adequate growth Developing toward achieving standards, but did not demonstrate basic competence

    18. 18. BREAK
    19. 19. Alignment of Teacher Candidate Rubric and Teacher Rubric Each group has 1 envelope• In your group, discuss the descriptors on the cards. – For each descriptor decide whether it belongs on the candidate rubric or teacher rubric. – Arrange the descriptors in order of increasing performance level for each rubric. – Align the candidate descriptors with the teacher descriptors that most closely match. Don’t just match words, focus on the behaviors being described.
    20. 20. LEA/IHE Certification of Teaching Capacity (CTC)• Based on NC Professional Teaching Standards.• Met = Proficient level or higher; Not met = lower than proficient• To be recommended for licensure, candidates must meet all descriptors on the CTC.• Signed by candidate, cooperating teacher(s), principal (or designee), & University Supervisor
    21. 21. To be recommended for a SP I license, a candidate must be proficient in Alldescriptors of All elements of All standards
    22. 22. At the end of the 3rd year, beginning teachers must receive ratings of proficient or higher on all standards inorder to receive a SP II license.
    23. 23. Educator Effectiveness
    24. 24. Why educator effectiveness?NC is implementing a new curriculum, new assessments, newtechnology tools to improve instruction, new ways of engagingstudents, and the list goes on… So why is the State focusing on educator effectiveness in the face of so many other changes?Because all our efforts in other areas depend on an effectiveteacher in every classroom and an effective leader in every schoolbuilding.
    25. 25. Why educator effectiveness?The work around educator effectiveness, including the Measures ofStudent Learning, is grounded in the belief that: Every student in North Carolina deserves an effective teacher in all courses and grades.Our students need to learn all of the standards in the NorthCarolina Standard Course of Study in order to be READY for theirfutures.
    26. 26. Why educator effectiveness?In order to increase their effectiveness, teachers need access tohigh-quality data. Every teacher in North Carolina deserves feedback on the growth of their students.It’s not about firing our way to a better teaching force. It’s aboutcreating a system that: • Identifies the strongest teachers so that we can all learn from them, and • Identifies those teachers who need additional support and targets that support to their needs

    36. 36. Three Years of DataAny three years of data attributable to a teacher orprincipal will be combined and used: • Any grades • Any subjects • Any schools • Any districtsThe three years of data do not start until they arespecific to that teacher and his or her students
    37. 37. StatusSo once a educator has athree-year average rating for Standard 6 or 8, how is status determined?
    38. 38. Status• The Three Status Categories are 1. In Need of Improvement 2. Effective 3. Highly Effective

    40. 40. Common Exams A Library of Common Examsis being designed for non-tested subjects for district use to populate Standard 6
    41. 41. Focusing on the “Why”So why have statewide Measures of Student Learning/Common Exams?1. North Carolina has a statewide evaluation system to ensure that every teacher receives a fair and consistent evaluation, regardless of his or her employing LEA2. Teachers in all content areas should receive a Standard Six rating based on the growth of their own students on their content-specific standards3. Most LEAs do not have the capacity to design their own assessments for all non state-tested grades and subjects
    42. 42. District Flexibility• Administration online, paper/pencil or hybrid• Date of administration• Administration during class period or testing week• Use in student grade• Which assessments are administered• How to ensure secure administration
