Transitioning to California Common Core State Standards SUMMER INSERVICE– (4th Grade) READING •Literature •Informational Text •Foundational Skills SPEAKING & LISTENING Presented by: Katy Thomas Norms • Be present and invested • Collaborate with colleagues • Avoid sidebar conversations during explanations • Set your phone to silent Outcomes: 1. “Own” the 10 Reading-Literature (RL), the 10 Reading-Informational Text (RIT), and the 2 applicable Reading-Foundational Skills (RFS) standards 2. Utilize social studies and science textbooks for teaching reading 3. Write CCSS-aligned lesson plans using the pacing guide and other resources provided Noteworthy Changes in Standards Organization: K-5 and 6-12 K-12 Consistency Emphasis on Expository Text Social Studies/Science Literacy Standards CCSS Scavenger Hunt PURPOSE: • Explore the legal-sized format • Review the organization of the standards • Discover additional resources within the document DIRECTIONS 1. Choose partners or triads. 2. Using the legal-sized copy of the standards, complete the scavenger hunt handout. 1. Which of all the ELA standards are only found in grades K-5? Reading – Foundational Skills #1-#4 … Numbers 1 and 2 are only listed for K and 1st grade since they are to be mastered by the end of 1st. 2. The three divisions of the reading strand (formerly known as “domain”) are Literature, _InformationalText_, and__Foundational Skills____ . 3. To find an explanation of the three factors considered when measuring text complexity, one could look on page __9__ and discover that the three factors are Reader and Task, __Qualitative___, and ____Quantitative_____. 4. …What do these standards have in common? They all seem to require the same reading skill or strategy but “tweaked” to fit the specific content are (e.g., “theme” is to literature what “main idea” is to expository text). There’s a parallel nature built in to all of the standards. 5. Find the Language standards for your grade level. What topics/skills are in the Language strand? 1) Conventions (L#1 and L#2): grammar, mechanics, spelling, and capitalization; 2) Knowledge of Language (L#3): Sentence variety, style, tone; and 3) Vocabulary Acquisition and Use (L#4-L#6): multiple meaning words, context clues, affixes, reference materials, figurative language, word relationships. 6. Identify the three purposes of writing as noted by the writing standards #1, #2, and #3. #1: persuade; #2 inform/explain, and #3 narrate 7.What seems to be the purpose of Reading – Literature #10, Reading – Informational Text #10, and Writing #10? These are application or mastery standards. Technically, the standard doesn’t refer to a specific skill or concept to be taught…just that the student is to be reading literature and informational text at grade-level and writing for a variety of purposes, audiences, and lengths of time. 8. Speaking and Listening standards are divided into which two substrands (indicated by light gray shading)? What are the implications…? 1) Comprehension and Collaboration (SL#1#3); 2) Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas (SL #4-#6). Implications: students are expected to be verbally processing and working collaboratively on a daily basis. 9. Portions of standards that are in bold, underlined print indicate_____California added this portion to the adopted CCSS. 10. Where could you go to find examples of text that illustrate the complexity, quality, and range of student reading in grades K5? p.10; also in Appendix B written by the CCSS authors FROM: TO: Two Significant Shifts in Reading: 1. Lexile Level Increase 2. Emphasis on Expository Text What is a “lexile”? Lexile is the unit used to report text complexity. 2 Factors: Word Frequency Sentence Length These two factors are similar to the “Frye Readability” formula.

Focus on Outcome #1: “Own” the 10 Reading-Literature (RL), the 10 Reading-Informational Text (RIT), and the 2 applicable Reading-Foundational Skills (RFS) standards Compare Reading Standards Directions: 1. Locate the reading – literature standards. Pages 1 and 2 (3rd-5th grades) Page 12 (6th grade) 2. Find standard #3 3. Read/trace the standard from kindergarten through 5th grade. 4. Notice the shifts in complexity but how the standards remain consistent with intent. K: identify characters; retell 5th: Compare/ contrast characters/settings 4th: Describe character, setting, or event 1st: describe characters, settings, events 2nd: Describe characters’ response to events 3rd: Describe characters; explain actions Activity: Side-by-Side Comparison Debrief • In looking at the reading literature and informational standards sideside-by-side, what do you notice about them? • What are the implications for use of the identified vocabulary words in the classroom? • What actions might be done to specifically address the word “text” and the use of “main idea and detail” paired with informational text? Activity: Highlight Text Dependent Standards Debrief •How prevalent was “text dependency” within the standards? •What is the significance for instructional planning? Think-Pair-Share What I learned through these activities was… When planning for instruction I will…. Resource to Apply Content Standards Introducing… the Pacing Guide process for creation! How was the pacing guide created? 1. ELA Crosswalk produced by SCOE (available on EGUSD website for CCSS) How was the pacing guide created? 1. (continued) ELA Crosswalk connection to Open Court How was the pacing guide created? 2. Converted reference page #s to Excel document- Spot checked validity of OC pages Activity: Standards Aligned Resource DIRECTIONS: 1. Locate your choice of various standards in the far left column. 2. Use the Standards Aligned Resource to locate specific page numbers identified as support for teaching the CCSS within the TE. 3. Be sure to check the margins for explicit support. 4. Spend 2-3 minutes with this activity. Open Court Color-Coded Sections Think about the content/standards that the color-coding sections of green, red, and blue represent in Open Court or if it is even found in Open Court. Preparing to Read Reading & Responding Language Arts •Word Knowledge •Selection Vocabulary •Writing process •Phonics and Fluency •Comprehension •English Language Conventions •Literary Elements •Spelling •Vocabulary Connecting Prior Knowledge DIRECTIONS: • Let’s examine CCSS Reading #1 to determine in which color-coded section in O.C. it would be found. • In partners or triads, determine the corresponding color-coded section for the following standards: Reading – Literature #2 Reading – Foundational Skills #3 Writing #3 Language #1 Language #4 Connecting Prior Knowledge Reading – Informational Text #5 – What O.C. resources are available? – Do they provide support for the intent of the standard? – If not, what are the implications? Table Discussion • What connections to color-coding did you make with the reading standards—both literature and informational text? • How might you use this document as a resource?

Introduction of Pacing Guide What if I find that my favorite selection is omitted on the pacing guide? “Fidelity to Program” “Fidelity to Standards” What if I find that my favorite selection is omitted on the pacing guide? “Fidelity to Program” “Fidelity to Standards” Writing is the one place where the pacing guide will not be absolute…this will be addressed during the Preservice training. Navigating the Pacing Guide • Take time to look at what resources are available. • Remember that reading standards #1 and #10 are virtually impossible NOT to teach. #1 = reading comprehension/text evidence #10 = comprehending gradelevel material Question & Answer Explore the pacing guide, and as a table, brainstorm a list of any questions you might have. Write your questions collectively on post-it notes. FROM: TO: Resources for Reading Questions Thank you to the Delaware Department of Education! http://www.doe.k12.de.us/aab/files/EL A/_Linking_Document.pdf Utilizing the Pacing Guide Applying the Resource •Highlight existing questions in O.C., social studies, or, science that would address the reading standards. •Create “post-it note questions” to align to specific standards using the question resource. •Suggestion: focus on creating high-quality questions for standards with the fewest identified resources. Reflection Fist to five: • When the day began, how would you evaluate your knowledge of CCSS reading standards? • How would you rank your understanding now? Discuss: • The resource that I will use the most is_____ because… Outcome 2: Utilize social studies and science textbooks for teaching reading Connecting the “what” (standards/curriculum) with the “how” (lesson planning) Gradual Release of Responsibility “I do” - Model the Skill “We do together” – Practice the Skill with Help “You do together” – Practice the Skill with Less Help “You do alone” – Practice the Skill with No Help Incorporating Speaking/Listening Standards into GRR DIRECTIONS: 1. Read the Speaking & Listening standards #1#3 and #6 for your grade level found on p. 6. 2. Discuss with your table how these standards naturally “fit” with the GRR planning lens. A Resource for Structuring Student Interaction • As you plan, you may want to consider structured ways to implement the Speaking & Listening standards into daily student communication. • Read the Structured Student Interaction resource (blue handout) in your packet. • Note the differences in the examples at the bottom. Debrief Consider what was presented about the Gradual Release of Responsibility, the tie to Speaking & Listening standards, and the resource for structuring student interaction. What AH-HAs and/or validation did you have? How might what was presented affect your planning? Analogy – Deconstructing a Process • Think about the steps in starting a car and pulling out of the driveway. • In groups of 4 or 5, create a list of the specific steps required beginning with unlocking the car door. • Be prepared to share. Deconstructing Lesson Plan Design How do I lesson plan both reading/writing standards with social studies and science? How do I lesson plan both reading/writing standards with social studies and science? Demo Lesson for Social Studies or Science Having discussed GRR and modeled the thinking process for lesson planning, let’s see what a portion of the lesson would look and sound like in a classroom. Reflect/Share/Discuss What are you thinking?
