Introductory information (Overarching Philosophy for SI 2012): The theme for this Summer Institute is “Addressing Student Needs in an Era of New Content Standards.” Teaching the whole child allows us to address student needs in the context of new standards. By thinking about the purpose and role of each content area, how it connects to other areas of learning, and how students’ needs are met, we are able to ensure that students receive the appropriate instruction to allow them to be successful.
NOTE TO TRAINER: If you are training in a non-Common Core state, you may wish to skip this slide. The states which have not adopted Common Core are (as of March 2012): Alaska, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas, and Virginia. PARAPHRASE: The K-12 Common Core Standards, or Common Core, is a set of standards released by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). These standards were released in June 2010. The DIBELS ® Next measures at every grade level can be correlated to the Common Core standards. The standards shown on the slide are examples; it is not an exhaustive list.
PARAPHRASE: Teachers who use mCLASS ® : Reading 3D™ base their instructional decisions on current student performance data rather than relying only on grade-level skills lists or local scope and sequence.
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.

Guiding QuestionsBased on the work of Dr. Rick DuFour:1. What is it we expect students to learn? Summer 2011 – Spring 2012 – Common Core State and NC Essential Standards2. How will we know when they have learned it? Summer 2012 – Spring 2013 – Data Literacy3. How will we respond when they don’t learn it? Summer 2012 – Spring 2013 – Connecting to Serve All Students4. How will we respond when they already know it? Summer 2012 – Spring 2013 – Connecting to Serve All Students

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.
Why educator effectiveness? The work around educator effectiveness, including the Measures of Student Learning/Common Exams, 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 North Carolina Standard Course of Study in order to be READY for their futures.
Why educator effectiveness? In order to increase their effectiveness, teachers need access to high-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 about creating 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

Why educator effectiveness? In order to increase effectiveness of new teachers, educator preparation programs need access to high-quality data. Every educator preparation program in North Carolina deserves feedback on the effectiveness of their program completers. It’s not about shutting down programs. It’s about creating a system that: • Identifies effective programs as determined by impact on P-12 student learning so that we can all learn from them, and • Identifies programs that need additional support and providing targeted support
