2Catching up on a few thingsNotetaking Scaffolds for Foreign Language Teachers

Feedback on Strategy Self-Assessments Reflection? Explicit examples and implications for teaching struggling readers? Infer? Analyze?

Global Languages

Structured Notetaking 3-2-1 3 Main Ideas2 Keywords 1 Question or Connection

Infer: to conclude from evidence and reasoning; to read between the lines

HOW? Text clues + Prior knowledge = Inference(evidence) + (reasoning)

Kathy froze in her footsteps. The hair stood up on the back of her neck. Something was definitely ________ (wrong/great). What might happen next and why? (predict)

Teach Strategies Explicitly (Define & Explain WHY and HOW; example)What clues are there? What reasoning did you use? What might happen next (making a prediction is one kind of inference) 5Analyze: to separate into parts and study their interrelations; break complex concept into parts to gain better understanding (opposite of synthesize) HOW? Zoom In (to carefully examine, inspect, and scrutinize details around a concept or idea)Zoom Out (determine how details are related to each other and to the rest of the text or key ideas) Teach Strategies Explicitly (Define & Explain WHY and HOW; example)Analyze ExampleZoom In: Authenticity of A History Professor: Amount and quality of preparationSkill in teachingWell versed in the literature of his/her fieldPlentiful publicationsWell presented publicationsEngage with other scholars in the disciplineNOT race or gender

Zoom Out: Notions of authenticity should be based on preparation, skill, and scholarly actions rather than gender and race

Who needs to ANALYZE??CCSS ELA Anchor Standards

10. Read and comprehend complex literacy and informational texts independently and proficiently.CCSS Mission StatementThe standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. 9CCSS Portrait ofa Student

(Informational Text: Elem 50%, Middle 55% High School, 70%) Shift 2Knowledge in the DisciplinesStudents build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities. In addition, research and inquiry are PROCESSES, not events. Shift 3Staircase of ComplexityStudents read the central, grade appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are patient, create more time and space and support in the curriculum for close reading.Shift 4Discussion and Text-based AnswersStudents engage in rich and rigorous evidence based conversations about text. DISCUSSION is key component of learning and building shared knowledge. (SPEAKING & LISTENING Is intentional) Shift 5Writing from SourcesWriting emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. (Three types of writing: opinion/argument; informative/explanatory, and narrative) Shift 6Academic VocabularyVocabulary instruction is explicit and intentional. Students constantly build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts.1313What Falls Under Informational Texts in the CCSS Grades 6-12 Includes the subgenres of exposition, argument, and functional text in the form of personal essays, speeches, opinion pieces, essays about art or literature, biographies, memoirs, journalism, and historical, scientific, technical, or economic accounts (including digital sources) written for a broad audience Shifts in MathematicsShift 1FocusTeachers significantly narrow and deepen the scope of how time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They do so in order to focus deeply on only the concepts that are prioritized in the standards.Shift 2 CoherencePrincipals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. Shift 3FluencyStudents are expected to have speed and accuracy with simple calculations; teachers structure class time and/or homework time for students to memorize, through repetition, core functions.Shift 4Deep UnderstandingStudents deeply understand and can operate easily within a math concept before moving on. They learn more than the trick to get the answer right. They learn the math. Shift 5ApplicationStudents are expected to use math and choose the appropriate concept for application even when they are not prompted to do so. Shift 6Dual IntensityStudents are practicing and understanding. There is more than a balance between these two things in the classroom both are occurring with intensity. 15CCSS Assessments PARCC (RI)Deeper encounters with authentic textsReward careful, close reading Focus on words that matter (academic language rather than obscure words) Cite evidence from text Write to text sources rather than decontextualized expository promptsInnovative Item TypesEvidence-Based Selected ResponsesTechnology-Enhanced Constructed ResponsesProse Constructed Responses

HomeworkPrepare for Faculty Meeting on Trends in Adolescent Literacy

View 20 minute Intro. Video Read/SKIM Assigned Report Prepare a two page handout using template (make enough copies for each group member) Next class: Share in Jigsaw group (your team members are depending on you!) Exemplar Modules & Your Task

Be more specific about your texts.History Teaching TaskTemplate 4 Argumentation/Comparison

What is a government of the people? After reading and discussing (our excerpt from) Funeral Oration and The Gettysburg Address, write a fully developed essay that compares the speeches and argues which leader (Pericles or Lincoln) delivers the most rhetorically compelling definition of democracy. Be sure to support your position with evidence from the texts. Science Teaching TaskTemplate 3 Argumentation & Comparison

After researching the 1948 Nobel Presentation Speech for the discovery of DDT and selected sections of Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" on DDT, write an essay that compares the evidence about DDTs impact from the speech and the book and argues whether the pesticide discovery should have received the Nobel Prize. Be sure to support your position with evidence from the texts.Language Arts Teaching TaskTemplate 21 Informational or Explanatory Analysis

How do writers and artists organize or construct text to convey meaning? After reading a variety of written and visual texts (film and photography), write an essay that addresses the question and analyzes the stranger in the village theme, providing examples to clarify your analysis. What conclusions or implications can you draw?
