  6. 6. Ohio’s NLS Three Common Instructional Shifts 1. Build a deep understanding of content and effectively apply learning within and across disciplines. 2. Craft responses based on evidence including: demonstrate understanding, explain reasoning, and/or justify a position. 3. Use technology appropriately, strategically and ethically in academic and real-world settings. 6
  7. 7. 7 The CCSS Requires Three Shifts in Mathematics 1. Focus: Focus strongly where the standards focus. 2. Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics 3. Rigor: In major topics, pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application
  8. 8. Rigor 8 • The CCSSM require a balance of:  Solid conceptual understanding  Procedural skill and fluency  Application of skills in problem solving situations • Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources.
  9. 9. Standards for Mathematical Practice 9
  10. 10. Grade Level OverviewGrade Level Overview Grade 4 Overview Operations and Algebraic Thinking Use the four operations with whole numbers to solve problems. Gain familiarity with factors and multiples. Generate and analyze patterns. Number and Operations in Base Ten Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers. Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic. Number and Operations—Fractions Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering. Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of operations on whole numbers. Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions. Measurement and Data Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit. Represent and interpret data. Geometric measurement: understand concepts of angle and measure angles. Geometry Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles. Mathematical Practices 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others 4. Model with mathematics 5. Use appropriate tools strategically 6. Attend to precision 7. Look for and make use of structure 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

  19. 19. Calculators on the NGA tests Grades 3 – 5 will not allow for calculator usage. Grades 6-7 will allow for an online four function calculator with square root. Grade 8 will allow for an online scientific calculator. High School will allow for an online calculator with functionalities similar to that of a TI-84 graphing calculator. Provide calculator accommodations on the non-calculator test sessions of the mathematics summative assessments for SWD who meet the eligibility criteria Calculator/ Non Calculator Problems
  20. 20. What Are the Shifts for ELA? 1. Complexity: Regular practice with complex text and its academic language. 2. Evidence: Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text, literary and informational. 3. Knowledge: Building knowledge through content rich nonfiction. 20
  21. 21. PARCC builds a staircase of text complexity to ensure students are on track each year for college and career reading. PARCC rewards careful, close reading rather than racing through passages. PARCC systematically focuses on the words that matter most— not obscure vocabulary, but the academic language that pervades complex texts. Shift 1: Regular practice with complex text and its academic language 21
  22. 22. PARCC focuses on students rigorously citing evidence from texts throughout the assessment (including selected-response items). PARCC includes questions with more than one right answer to allow students to generate a range of rich insights that are substantiated by evidence from text(s). PARCC requires writing to sources rather than writing to de- contextualized expository prompts. PARCC includes rigorous expectations for narrative writing, including accuracy and precision in writing in later grades. Shift 2: Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text, literary and informational 22
  23. 23. PARCC assesses not just ELA but a full range of reading and writing across the disciplines of science and social studies. PARCC simulates research on the assessment, including the comparison and synthesis of ideas across a range of informational sources. Shift 3: Building knowledge through content rich nonfiction 23
  24. 24. • Demonstrate Independence • Build strong content knowledge • Respond to the varying demands of audience, task, purpose and discipline • Comprehend, as well as, critique • Value evidence • Use technology and digital media strategically and capably • Come to understand other perspectives and cultures As a Result, our students will be able to...
