Common Core Learning Standards and Assessments Southern Westchester BOCES is offering a series of shared learning experiences to help educators become proficient in using the new Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) in Math and ELA. All workshops will include a shared learning time and an application phase. The goal is to assist administrators and teachers by: ♦

Identifying a shared language about the structure and meaning of the CCLS. Exploring how to use the standards in designing and implementing curriculum.

Identifying the concepts and skills students need to know and be able to do. Identifying big ideas or lasting understandings that will drive curriculum construction.

Identifying current and future opportunities for instruction that align to the CCLS. Developing a shared process to review and revise curriculum maps, and unit and lesson plan alignment to the CCLS.

Using the backward design model to plan new instruction based on the CCLS.

Investigating the six shifts in the CCLS and how they will impact ELA/Literacy and Mathematics instruction.

Supporting teachers in the implementation of close reading tasks.

Districts can choose from a variety of workshops and are encouraged to bring a team to allow for collaboration during the application phase of the workshop. All workshops can be used as turnkey training for your district.

K-6 Teachers! Shift with Shelley Harwayne New Ways with Non-Fiction Register @ My Learning Plan

Workshop summary

https://www.mylearningplan.com/ webreg/catalog.asp?H=1&D=12439% 20

In this course of study, Shelley Harwayne will explore ways to invigorate daily reading and writing work, while simultaneously meeting students’ diverse needs, addressing district expectations and honoring the essentials of the Common Core State Standards. Throughout, she will honor the wise words of Thomas Newkirk, who said, “When we stop experimenting, we stop living as teachers.” As such, she will introduce innovative writing challenges, ones that are age appropriate and can be accomplished in manageable units of time. In addition, Shelley will highlight the importance of teachers inventing their own non-fiction writing challenges and will provide suggestions and criteria for doing so. She will even offer advice for turning some classroom rituals into non-fiction writing assignments. Finally, Shelley will examine the importance of including short, non-fiction texts during guided reading work with all students. She will discuss the choice of texts as well as those instructional techniques that enable students to read deeply. As students move up in the grades and are asked to gather information for their non-fiction writing tasks, they must be able to read and question complex informational texts. This day long learning event will help teachers to support their students’ efforts and growth.

Interactive Writing: Building Phonological Awareness and Phonics Skills Meeting the Common Core Learning Standards Using the book by McCarrier, Fountas & Pinnell

Register @ My Learning Plan https://www.mylearningplan.com/ webreg/catalog.asp?H=1&D=12439% 20 Fee for three days: $480 Component Network Team members (CoSer 555 members) $630 Component Network Team Equivalent members (CoSer 555 members) $810 CoSer 555 non-members Plus $25 for required text: Interactive Writing by Andrea McCarrier Registration deadline: January 18, 2013

Interactive writing is a dynamic literacy event in which reading and writing come together.� Andrea McCarrier

Workshop summary In this multi- session course, participants will use the book, Interactive Writing by Andrea McCarrier, Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell as its foundation. Teachers who teach and support students in primary grades will learn how to use interactive writing as a powerful vehicle to teach concepts and conventions of print, the sounds in words and how the sounds connect with letters for beginning writers. Throughout this course, participants will learn about interactive writing, see it demonstrated, apply it in their classrooms and share student artifacts from that application. Interactive writing is an expertly orchestrated event in which the teacher guides the learning around the writing experience to demonstrate early reading strategies and how words work. The interactive writing process is wrapped in conversation throughout the experience as the students and teacher plan and discuss the text. Through the sharing of the pen between teacher and the children, the teacher is able to guide the writing process and provide appropriate pacing, assistance and instruction where needed. Since the students generally control the physical writing of the text, spelling knowledge increases, as well as the ability to construct words through connecting letters, clusters of letters, and sounds. And, as a boost to familiar reading for students, the interactive writing composition is read and reread by the group helping primary students to make the reading and writing connection. Interactive writing offers a powerful supplement to other writing experiences for primary children.

Data Driven Instruction “Data-Driven Instruction (DDI) is a precise and straight forward approach to improving student learning throughout the year. It’s a real-time way to gauge your students’ position and where they’re headed – and to meet them where they are, whether behind or ahead of the curve.” Engage NY Based on New York State Education Department turn-key training, the Data Driven Instruction model helps districts assess where they are with developing school-wide data, use protocols that will directly impact classroom instruction and lead to improved student results. Sessions are designed to support district and building teams at every step of development of an effective Data Driven Instruction model. Teams walk through the steps of self-assessing their current system and deepen their understanding of creating effective data reports, developing models for teacher analysis of the data and using the data to change classroom instruction. District Teams are encouraged to attend the four modules together.

NYU Steinhardt School

Funding Now Available for Teacher Training in ALL Public Schools Reading Recovery® is 1 of 4 national programs awarded the Investing in Innovation (i3) grant by the U. S . Department of Education, to help close the achievement gap and increase student outcomes. This scale up grant supports the training of Reading Recovery teachers nationwide and this funding is now available to all public schools. Reading Recovery is a research and evidence-based irst grade reading intervention that helps struggling readers quickly catch up with their peers in Grade 1. This intervention brings the majority of students with complete interventions to grade-level performance within 12-20 weeks of daily 30 minute lessons.

• • • • • •

READING RECOVERY SUPPORTS COMMON CORE STANDARDS Students are expected to meet grade-speci ic standards. Teachers use professional judgment and differentiated instruction to meet goals. Students move up a gradient of text dif iculty to more complex and challenging texts. Books used represent a range of styles and genre, including informational texts. Provides early intervention for children struggling with literacy learning and identi ies children who do not respond to intervention. Outcomes for ELLs match the large gains shown by native English speakers.

Reading Recovery Works! With more than 25 years of data in the U.S. and compelling results, Reading Recovery is validated by the USDE’s What Works Clearinghouse.

Reading Recovery yields bene#its to the whole school! As a systematic approach to early literacy intervention, the school gains a powerful assessment system for young children and highly skilled teachers. Contact: Mary Ellen Cull SW BOCES Coordinator of Reading Recovery 914-345-8500 ext. 137 mecull@swboces.org

To date, the number of struggling irst graders served by the SW BOCES Reading Recovery site exceeds 10,000 children! USA Today mentioned the cost bene its of Reading Recovery compared to retention in its April 12, 2012 editorial. Tangible returns include reduced retentions in irst grade & fewer placements in special education.
