    4. 4. + Primary Source  We provide graduate courses, workshops, and study tours for approximately 2500 educators each year.  We prepare students to thrive in a global economy and society by helping teachers instill a flexible, global mindset.  Many courses and workshops support globally minded classrooms with an emphasis on themes that encompass multiple world regions.  www.primarysource.org
    5. 5. + Session Goals Overview of Common Core State Standards and Global Content Strategies for Integrating Global Material within the Common Core Resources Questions
    6. 6. + Common Core Overview Mission Statement “The Common Core State Standards 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.” Common Core State Standards Initiative, June 2009 http://www.corestandards.org/
    7. 7. +Common Core Standards for ELA and Literacy in History/Social Studies Students who are “College and Career Ready”: From CCSS for ELA (p. 7)
    8. 8. +New or Notable about the Common Core for ELA/Literacy  Continues & enhances emphasis on critical thinking and higher-order thinking skills  Continues an integrated literacy model (writing, speaking, listening, & reading)  Highlights interpretive skills across range of texts, digital information, & media  Emphasizes reading of “complex,” challenging texts  Stresses student fluency with informational texts  Interdisciplinary: posits shared responsibility for students’ literacy development
    9. 9. + Anchor Standards for Reading  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. 2. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas. 3. Analyze how and why individuals, events, or ideas develop and interact over the course of a text. 4. Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity
    10. 10. + Anchor Standards for Reading  Craft and Structure 1. Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning. 2. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole. 3. Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text.
    11. 11. + Anchor Standards for Reading  Integration of Knowledge and Ideas 1. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse formats and media, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words. 2. Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence. 3. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
    12. 12. + Anchor Standards for Reading  Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity 1. Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
    13. 13. + Anchor Standards for Writing  Text Types and Purposes 1. Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence. 2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content. 3. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details, and well-structured event sequences.
    14. 14. + Anchor Standards for Writing  Production and Distribution of Writing 1. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. 2. Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach. 3. Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.
    15. 15. + Anchor Standards for Writing  Research to Build Present Knowledge 1. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. 2. Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism. 3. Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
    16. 16. + Where Global Enters Common Core Mission Statement “The Common Core State Standards 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.” Common Core State Standards Initiative, June 2009 http://www.corestandards.org/
    17. 17. +Where Global Enters the Common Core  Critical Thinking/Problem Solving  Communication  Information Literacy  Global Awareness  Self-Direction  Information, Media and Technology  Strong Knowledge of Core Subjects 21st Century Global Skills and CCSS Skills are closely aligned: P21 Common Core Toolkit: A guide to aligning the CCSS with the Framework for 21st c. skills, http://www.p21.org/images/p21_toolkit_final.pdf
    18. 18. +Why a global approach?  “To become college and career ready, students must grapple with works of exceptional craft and thought whose range extends across genres, cultures, and centuries. Such works offer profound insights into the human condition and serve as models for students’ own thinking and writing… Through wide and deep reading of literature and literary nonfiction of steadily increasing sophistication, students gain a reservoir of literary and cultural knowledge, references, and images; the ability to evaluation intricate arguments; and the capacity to surmount the challenges posed by complex texts.” (CCSS for ELA Anchor Standards for Reading – A Note on Range and Content of Student Reading) Global Content is Indicated in the CCSS:
    19. 19. + What types of informational texts are you using to teach about the world? What types could you use?
    20. 20. +Types of global informational texts Historical accounts Debates Memoirs TED talks Oral histories Essays Blogs Investigative journalism International newspapers Opinion pieces/ op-eds International NGO reports Manuals Speeches/rhetoric A Constitution or other foundational gov’t document News broadcasts
    21. 21. + Examples and Instructional Strategies for a Global Common Core
    22. 22. + Identifying Central Ideas  Standard 2:  Determine central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of the source distinct from prior knowledge or assumptions  Method: “Find-A-Poem”  “The Diary of MaYan: The Struggles and Hopes of a Chinese School Girl”  Memoir = Informational Nonfiction Text
    23. 23. + Identifying Central Ideas  Procedure Part 1:  Assign reading/excerpt  Students note central ideas and themes  (As I read passage, enter central ideas/themes in the “Question” box.)
    24. 24. + Identifying Central Ideas  Procedure Part 2  Discussion:  What was the tone of this excerpt?  What were central ideas/themes of the excerpt?  poverty/educational access  schooling as necessity/way out of poverty  women’s rights  boys v. girls in education  Procedure Part 3  “Find a Poem” in the assigned text  Circle/underline words/phrases  Use text to create a poem about a central idea
    25. 25. +Identifying Central Ideas The boys can study. Not girls. Not me. Why?! Without education, how will I live? how will I work? Without school, I am only a peasant. Forever. A sentence to work the land. Like my mother. Without knowledge. Without vacation. A sentence to earn money not for me, for my education for my school but for my brothers. For the boys. Why?!
