Intro to Common Core

Published on

I created this presentation to inform staff members about the developing Common Core requirements. Though this slideshow has a lot of information to digest, my style is also an interactive one. I try to create opportunities for participants to move around and collaborate with one another.

Intro to Common Core

  1. 1. INTRO TO COMMON CORE

  7. 7. FOCUS STRANDS  Key Ideas and Details:  1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.  Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity:  Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.  Text Types and Purposes:  Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.  Comprehension and Collaboration:  Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly persuasively.  Vocabulary Acquisition and Use:  Acquire and use accurately a range of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases sufficient for reading, writing, speaking and listening at the college and career readiness level.
  8. 8. WRITING STANDARDS  There are 3 distinct types of writing standards for Common Core:  Narrative: Narrative writing coveys an experience, either real or imaginary and uses time as its deep structure. Narrative writing can be informative, persuasive, or entertaining.  Informational: Informational/ explanatory writing conveys information accurately. The writer’s purpose is to increase the reader’s knowledge, to help the reader better understand a procedure or process, or to increase the reader’s comprehension of a concept.  Opinion/Argument: An argument is a reasoned, logical way of demonstrating the writer’s position, belief, or conclusion.
  9. 9. WRITING OVERVIEW  What type of writing is the following passage?  “When the famous naturalist Charles Darwin, who helped develop the theory of Evolution, visited the Galápagos Islands in the 1830s, he made an interesting discovery about native birds. He noticed that 13 different species of finches were all very similar, but differed in the size and shape of their beak. Is it narrative, informational or opinion/argument? The answer is Informational.
  10. 10. WRITING OVERVIEW  What type of writing is the following passage? “In Keesha’s kindergarten classroom, the day started with meeting time. The children sang a song everyday. They also talked about weather. Next, they had show and tell.” Is it narrative, informational or opinion/argument? The answer is Narrative.
  11. 11. WRITING OVERVIEW  What type of writing is the following passage? “Many school districts in the United States have begun banning vending machines that sell soft drinks and other unhealthy foods. I believe that our school should follow the lead of these schools to help combat the high obesity rate of students at JFK Middle School. Is it narrative, informational or opinion/argument? The answer is Opinion/Argument.
  12. 12. Collaborative Conversations When talking to a student (mostly) there should be no “yes” or “no” questions.
  13. 13. COLLABORATIVE CONVERSATIONS  Which of the following is the best question to ask a student after reading a passage: 1. “Juan, do you agree with the author on this issue?” 2. “Juan, have you had an experience in your life that is similar to what you just read?” 3. “Juan, using the text, what makes you agree or disagree with the author?” The best answer is #3

  17. 17. CREATE A WORD PROBLEM  Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end! `I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?' she said aloud. `I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth. Let me see: that would be four thousand miles down, I think--' (for, you see, Alice had learnt several things of this sort in her lessons in the schoolroom, and though this was not a very good opportunity for showing off her knowledge, as there was no one to listen to her, still it was good practice to say it over) `--yes, that's about the right distance--but then I wonder what Latitude or Longitude I've got to?' (Alice had no idea what Latitude was, or Longitude either, but thought they were nice grand words to say.)  Lewis Carrol, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland  5th to 6th grade level
