CCSS-M, page 5 Slide 16 Career and College Readiness for EVERY Student What role do district leaders and structures have in supporting and sustaining professional learning to support every teacher and ultimately, every student? WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014 16 Slide 17 Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCR Standards Implementation in WA WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014 2-Prongs: 1. The What: Content Shifts (for students and educators) Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content. 2. The How: System Remodeling Belief that successful implementation will not take place top down or bottom up it must be both, and Belief that districts across the state have the conditions and commitment present to engage wholly in this work. Professional learning systems are critical 17 Slide 18 The What: Key Content Shifts ELA, Math, Science Shifts in ELA 1. Building knowledge through content- rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literature 2. Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text 3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary These apply to content area (social studies, science, and technical subject) teachers as well as to English teachers. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201418 Shifts in Mathematics 1. Focus : fewer topics focused on deeply in each grade 2. Coherence : Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the grade 3. Rigor : Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts Shifts in Science 1.The NGSS Reflect the Interconnected Nature of Science through Focus, Understanding, and Application of Content 2.The Science Concepts in the NGSS Build Coherently from K12. 3. Science and Engineering are Integrated across K12 in the NGSS. RESOURCE HANDOUT Slide 19 The What - Power of the Shifts Know them both the what and the why Internalize them Apply them to decisions about Time Energy Resources Conversations with parents, students, colleagues, partners This effort is about much more than implementing the next version of the standards. It is about preparing all students for college and careers. WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201419 Slide 20 WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/2014 1. What do all students need to know and be able to do as a result of the CCSS? 2. What do the adults in the system need to know and be able to do to support all students? 3. How do we design a professional learning system to support them? The How: System Remodeling 20 Slide 21 The How: Connecting Multiple Avenues, Providers, and Directions for Professional Learning WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201421 Including: School Districts Higher Education Education and Educator Associations Private Partners Washington Slide 22 CCR Implementation through a district, building, and classroom lens WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201422 Phase 1: CCR Standards Exploration Phase 2: Build Awareness & Begin Building Capacity Phase 3: Build State & District Capacity and Classroom Transitions Phase 4: Statewide Application and Assessment Ongoing: Coordination and Collaboration to Support Implementation Slide 23 Through the lens of district, building, & classroom educators WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201423 Slide 24 WA TPL Overview Dates, Commitments, Systems of Support WA TPL Kick Off 6/2/201424 Slide 25 WA-TPL Vision The project will focus on enhancing critical state and regional-level infrastructures and capacity for sustained, results-driven, standards-based statewide and regional professional learning so School district and building leaders have the knowledge and skills to create the conditions necessary for every educator within their districts to increase their instructional capacity to make the instructional shifts that new Career- and College-Ready learning standards entail.
