BALANCING OUR PRIORITIES Journeys, The Common Core Standards and Data Teams

Implement the Data Teams process using district assessment and design instruction without core materials

Become familiar with what works for kids in the Journeys Materials

Use assessments from the Journeys Materials and implement a modified Data Teams Cycle

Work to create CFAs aligned to the CC Standards to build a deeper understanding of these standards

Goal: Implement the CC Standards with teacher created assessment to use during the Data Teams process. Deepen our Data Teams process by using student data around the standards to plan for instruction using Journeys as a starting point.

Deepening our Understanding…

The Common Core Ate My Baby and Other Urban Legends by Timothy Shanahan. (Educational Leadership – January 2013)

As you’re reading…  2 ideas that clarified something for you

? 1 idea that brings up a question

Goals for Moving Forward with Data Teams • Ensure that teams have assessments that support instructional decision making in both literacy & math. – “This teacher-created assessment may consist of entirely original items, or of items available through sources like online databases and ancillary materials, or of a combination of original and non-original items. However, it's critical that the team agrees that the items on the assessment accurately measure the "unwrapped" standards.” ~ Peery, pg. 22

• Implement a data analysis process to ensure that we are modifying instructional practices based on student needs.

CURRICULUM GUIDES 2013 – 2014

Frequently Asked Questions 1. Why can’t the district provide the “team I Can statements”? 2. If consistency is our goal, why aren’t we providing common assessments for each unit?

Question #1: Why can’t the district provide the “team I Can statements”? The purpose of the “team I Can statements”: – Build a deeper understanding of the grade-level standards – Promote teacher conversation regarding what this standard looks like through instruction and assessment – Team and teacher ownership of the “I Can” statements, common formative assessments, and instructional practices

Question #2: If consistency is our goal, why aren’t we providing common assessments? The Purpose of team created CFAs: – To drive daily instruction in the classroom

(…it's critical that the team agrees that the items on the assessment accurately measure the standards ~ Peery)

– Team and teacher ownership of what we want our students to know and be able to do regarding the ICC standards The purpose of our CFAs is not to compare schools or student progress. (**The Balanced Assessment System)

LITERACY DATA TEAMS MODEL Grade 4 Unit 5

Step #1: Focusing our Instruction Literature Standards

Informational Standards

Literature 2: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize the text.  I can determine the theme of a story, drama, or poem.  I can list details from the story, drama, or poem to defend the theme I determined.  I can create my own summary using the theme of the story, drama, or poem and the details to support it. Literature 9: Compare and contrast the treatment of similar themes and topics (e.g. opposition of good and evil) and patterns of events (e.g. the quest) in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures.  I can identify patterns of events that help me determine the themes and topics in stories, myths, and traditional literature.  I can explain similarities and differences in themes, topics, and patterns of events among stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures. Literature 1: Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.  I can use details from the story to explain what the text says explicitly.  I can draw inferences from the story using what the text says combined with my own thinking.  I can explain details and provide examples from the text to support the inferences I made.

Informational 3: Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.  I can explain important events or ideas in a text and support my explanation with details from the text.  I can explain important events or ideas in a text and what caused them to occur.  I can explain procedures from a text and identify signal words that supported my understanding.  I can explain the relationship of ideas in a text by examining how they are alike and different. (BUILDING CAPACITY FOR GRADE 5 INFORMATIONAL 3)

Informational 5: Describe the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text.  I can identify signal words or features for different text structures.  I can identify the structure used to organize a text.  I can identify text or graphic features and their purpose. (REVIEW from GRADE 3 INFORMATIONAL 5)

Focusing our Instruction 1. 2. 3.

I can use the details explicitly stated in the story and inferences I have made to determine the theme of the story. I can create my own summary using the theme of the story and details to support it. I can identify patterns of events and explain similarities and differences in themes in stories from different cultures.

1.

2.

I can explain the connection between important events or ideas in a text and support my explanation with key details from the text. (cause effect, sequencing, and compare and contrast) I can identify the text structure using signal words and text features in the text.

Goal for Step #1: Focusing our Instruction Promote teacher conversation & understanding of the grade-level standards: – What does the standard expect of students? – How do the different standards fit together? – What does this standard look like at previous or future grade levels?

Great resource to promote this conversation:

Step #2: Create the Pre/Post Common Formative Assessment

Goals for Step 2: Create the Pre/Post Common Formative Assessment • Assessment items directly aligned to prioritized I Can Statements. • Assessment items are designed to highlight the strengths and needs of students. • Assessment passages are grade level text. • Assessment length is reasonable. Resources to Support: – Journeys passages (practice book, projectable, unit assessments) – Read Works Website – District provided options

Step #3: Set the SMART Goal The percentage of students scoring proficient or higher on our prioritized I Can Statements will increase from ________% to ________% measured by the posttest administered on ___________________________.

Step #4: Identify Strengths and Needs • •

Identifying the text structure Identifying signal words that helped them know the text structure.

Needs/ • Implications •

Explaining cause/effect relationships THEME and identifying supporting details

Strengths

Goals for Step #4: Identify Strengths and Needs • The group analyzes the pre-assessment data to determine student strengths and areas of need, in reference to the team “I Can” statements. • Direct analysis of student work is necessary to complete this step.

Step #5: Planning for Instruction Lesson

Genre

Prioritized I Can Statements (* focus) I can use the details explicitly stated in the story and inferences I have made to determine the theme of the story. ** I can create my own summary using the theme of the story and details to support it. **

21

Literature

I can identify patterns of events and explain similarities and differences in themes in stories from different cultures.

Whole Group Considerations

** DEFINE THEME/LESSON FOR STUDENTS Use the handouts from Bobbi (In server folder) Student-friendly Themes Poster (from last year) Teacher Read Aloud: Questions 1, 3, 4 Question 4: What is the theme of this text? What details support this theme? Introduce Comprehension: Use Practice Book pg. 241 (Tues.). Use projectable 21.2 (Wed.)

Main Selection: (Thursday) Theme Graphic Organizer (In server folder) ** “Let’s track how the author worked toward building a theme. Deepening Comprehension: (Friday) Use the Guided Practice to have students “track” the development of theme on pg. 541-545. Text Structure Anchor Chart: Teacher Read Aloud: All of the questions – identifying the cause and the effect.

22

Informational

I can explain the connection between important events or ideas in a text and support my explanation with key details from the text. (cause effect, sequencing, and compare and contrast) I can identify the text structure using signal words and text features in the text.

Projectable 22.2: (t-93)(Tuesday) Stick with Cause/Effect Flow Chart. Add a box: identify signal words (as a result, which, because). Practice substituting other signal words in the text to “test” whether they are true signal words. Add another effect box: women got the right to vote. Main Selection: (Wednesday) Summarizes-- Teacher will read through each pages summary so students know what the main events are in the story (T95). Read pages 562563 (t96- t97) and complete projectable 22.3a. Read pages 565 (t99) –first 3 paragraphs (stop at the #4) complete the cause & effect on t98.

(Thursday) –continue to 567-569 (t101-103) complete the projectable 22.3b –use explicit details from the story. CAT—(Thursday) Complete practice book pg. 253 (t93) Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Goals for Step #5: Planning for Instruction • The group determines implications for whole group and small group instruction based on the team “I Can” statements and the pre-assessment student data. • Specific materials for use, teacher actions and student actions are articulated. • The group reviews the available materials within Journeys and determines what modifications to instruction and teacher language are necessary to accomplish our team “I Can” statements. Resources to Support: – JOURNEYS – The Common Core Book

Data Teams 2013-2014 (Grade 3 Unit 1) Literature Standards Literature 3: Describe characters in a story (e.g. their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events.  I can describe the traits, motivations and feelings of a character.  I can use the characters’ actions to infer their traits, motivations or feelings.  I can identify the sequence of major events in a story.  I can describe how the character’s actions caused the major events in a story.  I can compare and contrast two characters, using key details from the text, to deepen my understanding of characters in a story. (BUILDING CAPACITY FOR GRADE 5 LITERATURE 3)

Informational Standards Informational 3: Describe the relationship between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect.  I can locate and use signal words to help me identify time, sequence and cause/effect relationships.  I can identify important events, ideas or steps in the order they happened, to help me navigate the text that I am reading.  I can use signal words to help me describe the relationship between ideas in the text I’m reading.

Literature 5: Refer to parts of stories, dramas, and poems when writing or speaking about a text, using terms such as chapter, scene, and stanza; describe how each successive part builds on earlier sections.  I can identify and use the vocabulary terms that describe the parts of a text (chapter, scene, stanza, etc.).  I can describe how the parts of a text work together to create the big idea of a text. Literature 6: Distinguish their own point of view from that of the narrator or those of the characters.  I can identify the author’s or character’s point of view, using details from the text.  I can determine my own point of view using events or ideas from the text combined with my own experiences.  I can find similarities and differences between my own point of view and that of the author or character. Focusing our Instruction 1. 2. 3.

I can infer the character’s traits, motivations and feelings and tell how they contribute to the sequence of events. I can use the text structure to help me understand a story, poem or play. I can identify the author’s or character’s point of view (who is telling the story, 1 st or 3rd person) and compare it to my own or that of another character.

1. 2.

I can identify the key details to determine cause and effect relationships I can identify and use signal words to help find the sequence in the story ( time, dates, and signal words)

CLOSE Reading Overview • Read Article by Doug Fisher & Nancy Frey about close reading in elementary schools • Interacting with the Text * 3 connections you make while reading ? 2 questions you have ! 1 point that sticks in your mind

CLOSE Reading Overview • Text-Dependent Questions –Come prepared with a bank of questions to drive discussion to meet the end goal –Bring in opportunities for students to respond with writing (Write to Learn) –Evidence for questions must come from the text –Understanding beyond basic recall –Journeys has a great bank of questions to start discussions, however, you may need to add to some of the them or prioritize the questions that you need

Example of CLOSE Reading • Close Reading at Madison –What we did –What we learned and then changed • Post it notes/Writing with pencil in small group

–Things to consider • Time of year • Who needs extra support

• What have you tried? Share at your tables.

Journeys and CLOSE Reading • Our text dependent questions from A Fine, Fine School. 1. How does Mr. Keene feel about the students, teachers and school? How do you know? (T30) 2. What is the main problem in the story? Who is responsible for it? (T33) 3. Why does Tillie go to see Mr. Keene? (T34) 4. How did Tillie’s talk with Mr. Keene influence his decision at the end of the story? (solution)

Journeys and CLOSE Reading • Our text dependent questions from The Trial of Cardigan Jones. 1. 2.

3. 4.

The main problem is that Cardigan Jones is accused of stealing Mr. Brown’s pie. What details from the story lead you to believe that Cardigan Jones is guilty? How is Cardigan’s point of view about the problem different from that of Mrs. Brown? Reread pages 60-64. What happens after Cardigan insists that he did not take the pie? (T124) (First, Then, Next on student sheet) What clues lead the judge to solve the pie mystery? What was his conclusion? (solution) (T125)

Journeys and CLOSE Reading • Whole Group Discussion Questions 1. How did your knowledge of text structure help you better understand this story? 2. Who is telling this story? Let’s reread page48-51 together to help figure this out.
