1 Understanding the New Florida Standards A Parent s Guide Sigsbee Coffee Clatch February 18, 2015 Presenters: Angela Castonguay, Literacy Coach Barbara Dougherty, Math InstrucGonal Coach Eli Jannes, Principal

2 While you wait. Please visit Cpalms.org Click on a grade level you are interested in Click on either MathemaGcs or Language Arts Explore the standards and consider the following quesgon: How might the instrucgon look different for your child than it did for you when you were in elementary school?

3 Why Standards? Standards ensure all student have access to quality content at each grade level and in each content area Students need consistency across states Teachers need a framework for teaching Top performing countries have higher standards and fewer standards per grade level Economists report that stronger foundagonal skills in math and reading are required High school graduates oxen require remediagon to enter college courses

4 What are standards? The standards describe the what that students need to learn; however, they do not spell out the how for teachers. Curriculum and instrucgon define the how. The how is determined at the local levels; the district, the school and the classroom.

5 Common Core Standards/New Florida Standards 1) Aligned with college and career readiness; 2) Clear, understandable and consistent; 3) Include rigorous content and applicagon of knowledge through higher- order skills; 4) Build upon one another in a spiraling fashion from grade to grade; 5) Informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy; and 6) Evidence- and research- based.

6 New Assessments 2014: ExpectaGon for full implementagon of Standards 2015: New Assessments on Florida Standards in Literacy and MathemaGcs FCAT in Science remains EOC exams in Algebra 1, Geometry, and the Sciences remain Sigsbee Charter transi3oned to the Common Core State Standards in Last year, we adopted the New Florida Standards.

7 MathemaGcs & English Language Arts Standards and the FSA

8 MathemaGcs Standards: Significant Changes 1. Greater focus on fewer topics In grades K 2: Concepts, skills, and problem solving related to addigon and subtracgon In grades 3 5: Concepts, skills, and problem solving related to mulgplicagon and division of whole numbers and fracgons In grade 6: RaGos and proporgonal relagonships, and early algebraic expressions and equagons In grade 7: RaGos and proporgonal relagonships, and arithmegc of ragonal numbers In grade 8: Linear algebra and linear funcgons 2. Coherence: Linking topics and thinking across grades 3. Rigor: Pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skills and fluency, and applicagon with equal intensity A. Conceptual understanding B. Procedural skills and fluency C. ApplicaGon

9 What does that look like? Sophie wrote the following equations: 14 = 7 x 2 12 = 6 x 2 10 = 5 x 2 8 = 4 x 2 She said, I notice something. What do you think Sophie noticed?

10 MathemaGcs: Standards Two types of standards Content (the mathemagcs that students will learn) MathemaGcal PracGces (the way students will learn the mathemagcs) Persevering in solving problems ConstrucGng arguments and crigquing those of others Reasoning Focusing on precision Modeling Making generalizagons IdenGfying structure

11 Explaining thinking rather than showing only the steps

12 CollaboraGng

13

14 Florida Standards Assessment: MathemaGcs What s the same? Assessing the mathemagcs students have learned Problems are skill, conceptual, and problem- solving based Students are alloked a specific length of Gme (unless there is an individualized educagonal plan that sgpulates otherwise) Where appropriate, reference sheets are provided What s different? Grades 5 8 are computer based Problems are not all mulgple choice MathemaGcal pracgces are embedded in the problems

15 FSA MathemaGcs (3 rd grade)

16 FSA: MathemaGcs (4 th grade)

17 FSA: MathemaGcs (5 th grade)

18 FSA: MathemaGcs (6 th grade)

19 FSA: MathemaGcs (7 th and 8 th )

20 What can you do to support your child s learning? Help them persevere Encourage them to akack problems for which they do not have a ready solugon method available Relate problems to simpler ones Explain the process in words

21 21 ELA Standards Reading Literary Text InformaGonal/Explanatory Text WriGng Speaking & Listening Language

22 Staircase of complexity 22

23 Staircase complexity 23

24 English Language Arts: Significant Changes in Reading Read closely Make logical inferences Cite specific textual evidence Read complex literary and informagonal text

25 English Language Arts: Significant Changes 25 in WriGng Write arguments Write informagve/explanatory text Draw evidence from literary or informagonal text Assess the credibility and accuracy of each source

26 26 English Language Arts: Significant Changes Emphasis on Speaking and Listening ParGcipate in a range of conversagons and collaboragons Express ideas in a clear and persuasive manner Adapt speech to a variety of context

27 English Language Arts: Significant Changes 27 in Language emphasis on acquisigon and use of academic language

28 What does that look 28 like? Analyzing Text IdenGfy text structure IdenGfy and priorigze relevant informagon IdenGfy central ideas Gather supporgng evidence

29 Balanced Approach 29

30 Florida Standards Assessment of English 30 Language Arts What is the same? Assessing the reading skills and concepts students have learned Students are alloked a specific length of Gme (unless there is an individualized educagonal plan that sgpulates otherwise) Students are assessed in 2 sessions Students assessed in a familiar senng What is different? WriGng is assessed in grades 4-11 Grades 5 8 are computer based Problems are not all mulgple choice Aligned to the Language Arts Florida Standards

31 FSA: ELA, 3rd grade 31

32 FSA: ELA, 4-5th grade 32

33 FSA: ELA, 6th - 8th grade 33

34 What can you do to help? Ensure that your child is reading appropriate text, offering support if they choose a text that is at a higher independent level. Ensure that your child is reading every night and that he/she has opportuniges to talk about the reading. Assist your child in selecgng text from different genres, including a lot of informagonal text. Work on building endurance and perseverance. Remember that your child must complete the work INDEPENDENTLY.

35 35 FSA Parent Portal hkp://fsassessments.org/students- and- parents

36 Wrap Up WHAT TO DO Establish an environment for successful, independent learning. Make sure your child is in school and punctual everyday. Support healthy eagng and sleeping habits. Provide a quiet space for uninterrupted work. Focus on building endurance and perseverance Model a posigve antude about challenge and the new assessments WARNINGS Don t do the work for your child. Don t go on vacagons or allow your child to be tardy. Don t lose out on sleep or healthy meals. Don t let your child give up easily or quickly. Don t tell your child the work is too difficult. Don t stress your child about tesgng or threaten your child with consequences for poor performance.
