ELA Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments

ALL Students Learning: How Do We Get There? The Common Core Learning Standards for ELA challenge teachers to “ensure that all students are college and career ready in literacy no later than the end of high school.” In this one-day learning opportunity, participants will identify the beliefs and practices that have, in the past, prevented all students from achieving this goal, then learn specific steps that can be taken to transform any elementary classroom into a true Common Core community for all students. Participants will leave with a deep understanding of why inclusive practices are essential for achievement of the ELA standards for all students, the principles of Universal Design for Learning and practical advice on how to make it happen. Materials: Bring ELA Common Core Standards for your grade level and if you have it, “Guiding Readers and Writers,” by Fountas and Pinnell.

The Close Read: A Vehicle for ALL STUDENTS to Read Complex Text Participants will: • Review Common Core Learning Standards and NYS expectations for ALL students and discover the power of the close read as a vehicle to help meet all six shifts demanded by the Common Core. • Define the close read and analyze a state exemplar. • Experience a close read from the student perspective. • Determine how to choose an appropriate text for a close read. • Develop understandings of Evidence Based Questions and how to craft them. • Investigate ways to support ALL learners prior to and during a close read so that ALL students can meet with success in reading on-grade level complex text. Outcomes: Participants will build their understanding of the term “close read” and discover how to create one. Each participant will begin crafting a ‘close read literacy task’ for his/her subject area to meet the rigor and expectations of the Common Core Learning Standards. Materials: Participants should bring a selection of possible texts that they could use to craft a close read. These texts should align to the rigor of the grade level Common Core Learning Standards in which they work. For primary grades, you could use a complete text, such as a guided reading book. For intermediate grades and higher, we recommend that you bring a text that does not exceed 2-3 pages, such as a short article or document. No matter the grade level, the text should be a critical part of your curriculum.

Math Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments

Exploring the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics: Practices and Progressions for Grades K-4 or 5-8 The teaching of mathematics has changed in recent years. Rather than focusing on correct answers, we are striving to help our students do the math and understand what they are doing. Teachers need opportunities to test out new strategies, reflect on new ideas and gain both the skills and confidence to be outstanding teachers of mathematics. Implementing the Common Core Standards begins with an understanding of the Standards for math practice. Join Sue O’Connell, author of "Putting the Practices into Action" (Heinemann, 2013), to explore the Common Core Standards for Math Practice and gather a wealth of ideas for implementing them in your classroom. This two-day session will explore these standards through teacher-friendly language and practical classroom tasks. In addition, we will explore the CCSS math content progressions to gain a clearer understanding of the content explored at each grade level. Join us to gather ideas and strategies for teaching mathematics with a Common Core approach.

Social Studies Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments

Grade 6 – 12 Social Studies Teachers: Transition to the Core Implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards in the Social Studies Classroom This is a two-day workshop that will provide teachers with an opportunity for teachers to attend one or both days, depending on their level of understanding of the Common Core and its implementation. Let's undo "the conundrum wrapped in an enigma" and improve student learning and teacher instruction with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. Participants will spend time "unpacking" the standards in detail, relating specific standards to actual curriculum and tasks for students and discussing assessment and accountability strategies. Overview of the workshop: Day 1: Learn how to make the transition to the Common Core in the 6 – 12 social studies classroom. Examine the standards and the shifts in teaching that are required for success, and practice close read techniques and then review the “what and why” of the CCLS. Day 2: Go beyond the basics and learn methods and strategies of the CCLS. This session focuses on close reads, assessments and rubrics, which turn theory into application and empower teachers to succeed with Common Core targets. Materials: Participants should bring their copies of the CCLS and a selection of texts they could use to craft a close read, which are 2-3 pages in length and a critical part of your curriculum. Dates: Choose one of the following set of dates: Aug. 28, 2013 and Aug. 29, 2013, or Nov. 5, 2013 and Nov. 6, 2013, or Jan.16, 2014 and Jan. 17, 2014, or May 13, 2013 and May 14, 2014 Time: 8 a.m. registration and coffee, 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. program, lunch on your own.

Increasing Effectiveness: Using Inquiry to Address Student Misconceptions in Science Inquiry is an essential, central part of teaching science for understanding – both for understanding the concepts/ideas of science and for understanding the nature of science. But, research shows that student misconceptions are a significant barrier to understanding science and that unless inquiry-based activities involve focused attention on misconceptions, the students do not learn the correct concepts. In this one-day workshop, teachers will learn how to: • Uncover students’ previous ideas, naïve conceptions and misconceptions that impede learning • Develop activities that provide learners with the experiences they need to confront their misconceptions • Plan instruction using the Conceptual Change model to help students make sense of their experiences and replace their misconceptions with valid, scientifically-accepted concepts.

Supporting Quality Assessment Design It's not necessary to have psychometricians design their tests, but given that less than 20 percent of teacher prep programs contain advanced assessment design courses (Journal of Higher Education, 2008), it's difficult to know what makes a quality assessment. This full-day program provides an overview of a self-assessment checklist and a process that district personnel can use to revise the design of their locally-designed assessments, with a focus on traditional test design (multiple choice items) and performance-based assessments. As a result of the program, participants will be able to: • Understand psychometric concepts such as reliability, validity, fairness, and bias • Understand the connection between learning targets/standards and assessment design • Document evidence of quality during the design process Date: Oct. 2, 2013 Time: 8 a.m. registration and coffee, 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. program; lunch on your own.

Improving Inter-rater Reliability in Classroom Observations Using the Danielson Framework for Teaching This two-day workshop is a follow up to “Understanding and Using the Framework for Teaching.” The purpose of day one is to improve the quality and consistency of classroom observations. Participants will deepen their understanding of the Framework and continue to develop their skills in evidence-based observation techniques and professional conversations. The session will include an opportunity to use the ASCD Framework and Danielson Teachscape rubrics to collect and interpret evidence of teaching and identify levels of performance. On day two, participants will apply their observation skills to review and calibrate classroom observations using an established protocol. The key to establishing consistency in any system is the periodic review of completed reports submitted by evaluators. Using agreed-upon criteria and procedures for collecting and scoring evidence, participants will learn how to review completed observation reports and provide feedback to evaluators regarding the quality of evidence presented and the reliability of the scoring. Participants will have an opportunity at the end of the session to apply their learning by reviewing sample reports brought from their own district. This training is essential for administrators and school leaders at every level who conduct observations and oversee evaluations.

Catching Up to the Standards: How to Define, Set, and Chart “Ambitious But Realistic� Student Academic Goals The Common Core Learning Standards demand a high level of student academic performance. In response, teachers must be able to set "ambitious but realistic" academic outcome goals for struggling students that are both attainable and sufficiently ambitious to bring students up to the standards. The training provides answers to challenging questions about academic goal-setting, including how to: Describe a range of academic goals (reading, math, writing) in clear, specific, measureable terms; analyze any Common Core Learning Standard to identify prerequisite academic skills required for success; estimate typical "peer performance" in goal-setting using the best data available: research norms, local norms or expert opinion; set ambitious but realistic academic goals for students whose instruction is "off-level" from grade of record; write (for the same student) both long-term academic goals suitable for IEPs or year-long RTI monitoring and short-term goals that can be attained in 6-8 instructional weeks; and chart and evaluate student data against pre-set goals on a progress-monitoring graph. Participants will receive a complete set of curriculum-based measurement norms compiled from recent research that cover basic academic skills for use in their own classroom goal-setting. The workshop will include group activities in which participants are given student case examples, directed to set specific academic-outcome goals for those students, and prompted to explain their goal-setting according to the guidelines provided in the workshop.
