1 Common Core Learning Standards as they relate to the Regents Reform Agenda Garden City Public Schools Board of Education Presentation February 2014

2 GARDEN CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT Mission Statement The Garden City School District seeks to create an environment for learning which enables each student the opportunity to grow as an individual as well as a group member while striving to achieve the optimal level of academic, social and personal success. Students will thrive in a learning environment that is developmentally appropriate, individualized and challenging. Our goal and responsibility is to help each student develop an enthusiasm for learning, a respect for self and others, and the skills to become a creative independent thinker and problem solver.

3 Background: Race to the Top The federal administration invited states to compete for $4.3 billion States agreed to evaluate teachers by student test scores, award bonuses to teachers based on student scores, permit charter schools, and turn around low-performing schools 45 states + DC have adopted the Common Core State Standards NYS approved additions to the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and Literacy plus a new set of Prekindergarten Standards NYS received $700million funding from RTTT, of which $300million awarded to NYC The Garden City School District was awarded ZERO DOLLARS!

4 NYS Board of Regents Reform Agenda Implement instructional changes to raise rigor and accountability Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) and mandated state assessments Implement a system for supporting highly effective teachers and principals Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) Create a data repository to measure student success and provide feedback on program effectiveness Public schools districts in NYS must comply with regulations established by the state. There is no option to opt out.

5 What is the Common Core? The Common Core Learning Standards are guidelines for what students should know and be able to do at various points in their school careers. The standards are designed to promote critical thinking, encourage a deep understanding of content, and build skills with the goal of enabling all students to be college-and-career ready.

6 Facts about the Common Core The CCLS are not a curriculum or a particular course of study. Garden City Public Schools has been, and continues to be, in charge of its curricula. Our teachers do not use scripted lessons. Garden City has been implementing the CCLS gradually, first by studying it during the school year, and then by making prudent changes and adaptations to existing curricula during the past two years. Instructional modules provided by SED have been reviewed to see how well aligned they are with the Common Core, our existing curricula, and our plans for future curriculum development.

7 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects

8 Key Advances in the Common Core ELA/Literacy Standards Reading Balance of literature and informational texts Focus on text complexity and what students read Writing Emphasis on argument and informative/explanatory writing Writing about sources (evidence) Speaking and Listening Inclusion of formal and informal talk Language Stress on academic and domain-specific vocabulary Address reading and writing across the curriculum Responsibility of teachers in those subjects Complement rather than replace content standards in those subjects

9 Grade-Level Progression in Reading Reading Standards for Literature Grade 3: Describe characters in a story (e.g., their traits, motivations, or feelings) and explain how their actions contribute to the sequence of events. Grade 7: Analyze how particular elements of a story or drama interact (e.g., how setting shapes the characters or plot) Grades 11-12: Evaluate various explanations for characters actions or for events and determine which explanation best accords with textual evidence, acknowledging where the text leaves matters uncertain. Reading Standards for Informational Text Grade 3: Describe the relationships between a series of historical events, scientific ideas of concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect. Grade 7: Analyze the interactions between individuals, events, and ideas in a text (e.g., how ideas influence individuals or events, or how individuals influence ideas or events). Grades 11-12: Analyze a complex set of ideas or sequence of events and explain how specific individuals, ideas, or events interact and develop over the course of the text. 9

10 Overview of Reading and Writing Strands Encourage students to expand their reading horizons and include a greater emphasis on non-fiction and close reading of texts Expect students to compose arguments and opinions, informative/explanatory pieces, and narrative texts Focus on the use of reason and evidence to substantiate an argument or claim Require students to incorporate technology as they create, refine, and collaborate on writing Emphasize ability to conduct research short projects and sustained inquiry 10

11 Overview of Speaking and Listening and Language Strands Speaking and Listening Focus on speaking and listening, both formal and informal academic, small-group, whole-class discussions Emphasize effective communication practices Require interpretation and analysis of message as presented through oral, visual, or multimodal formats Language Include conventions for writing and speaking Highlight the importance of vocabulary acquisition through a mix of conversation, direct instruction, and reading Address in context of reading, writing, speaking and listening Media and Technology are integrated throughout the standards. 11

13 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics

14 Key Advances in the Common Core Math Standards Focus and coherence Focus on key topics at each grade level Coherent progressions across grade levels Depth over breadth Allows more time for mastery Balance of concepts and skills Content standards require both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency Mathematical practices Foster reasoning and sense-making in mathematics

15 Overview of the K-8 Mathematics Standards The K-5 standards provide students with a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals The 6-8 standards describe robust learning in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics Modeled after the focus of standards from high-performing nations, the standards for grades 7 and 8 include significant algebra and geometry content Students who have completed 7 th grade and mastered the content and skills will be prepared for algebra, in 8 th grade or after

16 Priorities in Mathematics Grade Priorities in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding Addition and subtraction, measurement using K 2 whole number quantities Multiplication and division of whole numbers and 3 5 fractions Ratios and proportional reasoning; early 6 expressions and equations Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of 7 rational numbers 8 Linear algebra

17 Domain Progression in the NYS Common Core Learning Standards PK - 8 Domain Progression Domain PK K Counting and Cardinality Operations and Algebraic Thinking Number and Operations in Base Ten Number and Operations - Fractions Ratios and Proportional Relationships The Number System Expressions and Equations Functions Measurement and Data Geometry Statistics and Probability

18 Math Progression This progression addresses the mile wide and an inch deep problem associated with previous standards. In order to promote critical thinking and problem solving, fewer topics are being taught, but taught more deeply. The new standards devote more attention to developing understandings of place value, fractions and algebraic concepts, thereby providing a stronger foundation and skill-set for students as they prepare for post-secondary education.

19 Grade 6 Mathematics Overview Ratios and Proportional Relationships Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems. The Number System Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions. Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples. Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers. Expressions and Equations Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions. Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities. Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables. Statistics and Probability Develop understanding of statistical variability. Summarize and describe distributions. Geometry Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

20 Building Knowledge in the Disciplines: Grades 6-12 Content area teachers outside of the ELA classroom emphasize literacy experiences in their planning and instruction Students learn through domain-specific texts in science and social studies classrooms rather than referring to the text, they are expected to learn from what they read

21 NYS Common Core Assessments In Spring 2013, New York State administered the first ELA/Literacy and Mathematics Common Core tests to students in grades 3-8 In June 2014, Common Core Algebra Regents exam will be administered. Accelerated eighth graders will NOT sit for the grade 8 math assessment. Current ninth graders will sit for the Common Core English Regents exam in 2016 during their junior year Extra help, support classes and academic intervention services are provided to assist students who are struggling to meet standards.

28 Issues Regarding Implementation The hasty roll out of the Regents Reform Agenda has led to many concerns and questions about implementing all of these changes at one time. Simultaneous grade level roll-out of standards rather than gradual implementation. Instructional resources provided by the State Education Department were not released in a timely fashion. Increased length and level of rigor state assessments; SED set higher cut scores to meet proficiency. Teacher evaluation process aligned with student growth and/or achievement by on local and state assessments. Collection of student data. Additional unfunded mandates; state monies allocated to high need, low wealth districts. The NYS Board of Regents is expected to announce an action plan in February 2014 to address issues concerning the implementation of the Regents Reform Agenda.

29 Collection of Student Data- inbloom NYS selected inbloom as the vendor for its student data repository The privacy of student data is currently regulated by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) There is no current opt out of the reporting of student data. NYS collects many data points, including grades, test results and attendance records NYS had previously uploaded 90% of data on 2.7 million public and charter school students to inbloom. The uploaded data was stripped of students names. Eight of nine states that signed on to use inbloom have withdrawn, citing privacy and security issues. NYS is the sole remaining subscriber. As of January 19, 2014, the SED has decided to postpone the uploading of additional student data until April The new data is slated to include personally identifiable information.

30 Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) Process by which teachers and principals are evaluated Details of the evaluation process are negotiated locally by each district All K-12 teachers and principals are evaluated on classroom observations (or, for principals, leadership and management observation), student growth and student achievement The NYS standardized assessments for grades 3-11 in ELA and mathematics are required by the federal government and are tied to RTTT and NCLB funding. Regents exams in social studies and science are required by NYS. Process for developing APPR plans is outlined by state education law, and all plans must adhere to certain requirements to be approved by the State Education Department The specific standards for successful student growth and achievement are decided by each district. Teachers who do not receive a growth score from the state are evaluated on student progress against learning targets set by each district for each grade level or course.
