  • Regional Educators Advancing College, Career, and Citizen Readiness Higher
  • Toolkit 2: Aligning Curriculum with Common Core State Standards

GOALS

  • Understand the shift in what proficiency means
  • Understand alignment between standards/domains, assessment, and facilitation of learning
  • Understand alignment includes literacy across all content areas

CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT

  • What does curriculum alignment mean?
  • What are its components?

ALIGNMENT

THE CONNECTION

SHIFTS IN PROFICIENCY

  • Each vertex of the triangle -- standard/domain, assessment, and facilitation of learning-- represents a critical component of curriculum alignment.
  • Each level of the spiral staircase is essential to moving students from a basic knowledge level to a progressive level necessary for students to prepare for career, college, and citizenship.
  • 3. Each teacher at each grade level plays a vital role in preparing students for career, college, and citizenship.

ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS

  • How do standards/domains, assessment, and facilitation of learning drive curriculum alignment?
  • How does twelfth grade relate to kindergarten and all other levels?
  • How does learning progress from kindergarten to twelfth in preparation for college, career and citizenship?

EFFECTIVE TRANSITIONS

  • Alignment ensures when entering each grade, students are prepared for the learning opportunities at that level.
  • Effective transitions require collaborative alignment.
  • Teachers know expectation of grade level preceding and succeeding own grade level to facilitate learning.
  • An amusement park has games, rides, and shows.
  • The total number of games, rides, and shows is 70.
  • There are 34 rides. There are two times as many games as shows.
  • How many games are there? How many shows are there?
  • Use numbers, words, or drawings to show how you got your answer.
  • If you need more room for your work, use the space below.
  • Did you use the calculator on this question?

ALIGNMENT IN MATHEMATICS

  • Alignment can help facilitate understanding of the connections between content, processes, and literacy that are interwoven in meaningful tasks students encounter.
  • Alignment can provide an opportunity to explore where fluency in mathematics is required and used to facilitate problem solving to demonstrate a higher level of proficiency.

ALIGNMENT IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS

  • Alignment increases knowledge base level upon level
  • Alignment requires understanding of increased complexity levels in fiction and informative text
  • The alignment of English Language Arts provides opportunities for other content area connections

ORANGES

  • ORANGES
  • The first time I walked
  • With a girl, I was twelve, Cold, and weighted down With two oranges in my jacket. December. Frost cracking Beneath my steps, my breath Before me, then gone, As I walked toward Her house, the one whose Porch light burned yellow Night and day, in any weather. A dog barked at me, until She came out pulling At her gloves, face bright with rouge. I smiled, Touched her shoulder, and led Her down the street, across A used-car lot and a line Of newly planted trees, Until we were breathing Before a drugstore. We Entered, the tiny bell Bringing a saleslady Down a narrow aisle of goods.
  •  
  • I turned to the candies Tiered like bleachers, And asked what she wanted --- Light in her eyes, a smile Starting at the corners Of her mouth. I fingered A nickel in my pocket, And when she lifted a chocolate That cost a dime, I didn't say anything. I took the nickel from My pocket, then an orange, And set them quietly on The counter. When I looked up, The lady's eyes met mine, And held them, knowing Very well what I was all about  Outside, a few cars hissing past, Fog hanging like old Coats between the trees. I took my girl's hand In mine for two blocks, Then released it to let Her unwrap the chocolate. I peeled my orange That was so bright against The gray of December That, from some distance, Someone might have thought I was making a fire in my hands.

NAEP

  • Write down in your own words some of the images from the poems that linger in your mind.
  • 58% of Oklahoma’s 8th grade students scored satisfactory on this question.

O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.

  • O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.
  • O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills; 10 For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths--for you the shores a-crowding; For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here Captain! dear father! This arm beneath your head; It is some dream that on the deck, You've fallen cold and dead.
  • O Captain! My Captain!

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still; My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will; The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done; From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won; 20 Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells! But I, with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. Walt Whitman

  • Analyze Walt Whitman’s “O Captain, My Captain!” to uncover the poem’s analogies and allusions. Then analyze the impact of specific words choices by Whitman, such as rack and grim, and determine how they contribute to the overall meaning and tone of the poem.

Literacy in Science

  • CCSS for Literacy in Science:
  • 1. Write arguments focused on discipline-specific content.
  • 6. Use technology to produce, publish, and update individual and/or shared writing - displaying information in a flexible and dynamic way.
  • 7. Conduct a sustained research project.
  • 8. Gather relevant information from multiple relevant sources. Assess the usefulness of each source and integrate information into the text to maintain the flow of ideas.
  • 9. Draw evidence from infomational texts to support analysis and research.
  • Assignment:
  • Students will create a webpage using Wikispaces, Weebly, or GoogleSites which contains a pro or con argument about one of the following topics:
  • Fracking for Natural Gas
  • Nuclear Energy
  • Stem-cell Harvesting from Aborted Embryos
  • Climate Change
  • Returning a Manned Spacecraft to the Moon.

Students will research both print and electronic sourced articles to form an argumentative essay, citing specific evidence from their research. The webpage must include appropriate citations (APA?) and references.

  • Students will research both print and electronic sourced articles to form an argumentative essay, citing specific evidence from their research. The webpage must include appropriate citations (APA?) and references.
  • Option 1 - Once the essay is written (webpage is created) students will read 3 of their classmates essays and comment on them to increase the strength of the argument. The information used in the research should be accessible for everyone to read.
  • Option 2 - Once the essay is written (webpage is created) students will read 3 of their classmates essays, choose an opposing viewpoint, and comment on the page citing their own evidence to the contrary.
  • The essay/webpage should be organized in such a way the establishes clear evidence to support the claim. It should also entertain opposing viewpoints with counter-evidence. The style should be formal and maintain an objective tone, using norms and conventions of the discipline in which they are writing. There should be a concluding statement or section that supports the argument

Literacy in Social Studies

  • I say to the House as I said to ministers who have joined this government, I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind.
  • We have before us many, many months of struggle and suffering.
  • You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage

War against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.

  • War against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.
  • You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs-- Victory in spite of all terrors-
  • Victory, however long and hard the road may be,
  • For without victory there is no survival.
  • I take up my task in buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our cause will not be suffered to fail among men. I feel entitled at this juncture, at this time, to claim the aid of all and to say, “Come then, let us go forward together with our united strength.”

EXAMPLE OF KEY ADVANCES MATH GRADES K-3

  • K-2: Work on number, place value, and addition and subtraction concepts, skills, and problem solving.
  • Grade 3: Student s will learn concepts, skills, and problem solving for multiplication and division. This will continue through grade 5 – preparing way for work with ratios/proportions in Grades 6-7 .

EXAMPLE OF KEY ADVANCES MATH GRADE 7 to 8

  • Students build on previous work with proportional relationships, unit rates, and graphing to connect these ideas and understand that the points (x, y) on a non-vertical line are the solution of the equation y= mx + b where m is the slope of the line as well as the unit rate of a proportional relationship (in the case
  • b = 0).

REFLECTION

  • 3 -2-1

3 – 2 – 1

  • THREE things learned about curriculum alignment during this presentation.
  • TWO ways he/she can begin to align standards/domains, assessment, and facilitation of learning.
  • ONE clarifying question about the alignment to discuss with table mates.

NEXT STEP . . .

  • What is the next step for participants?

SUMMARY

  • Understand the shift in what proficiency means
  • Understand alignment between standards/domains, assessment, and facilitation of learning
