Dobra Aprendizagem E Inovação's curator insight, Today, 12:59 PM

Infográfico animado mostra explica como o sistema tradicional está defasado e como o Common Core que é um novo grupo de 'standards' vai mudar isso. Ele possui conquistas que cada aluno deve alcançar em cada idade, porém dá total liberdade aos professores na estratégia para alcançar cada conquista. 

"These internationally benchmarked standards establish a set of clear and consistent guidelines for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level in math and English language arts so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in college and the workforce.

The implementation of these new standards and the creation of high-quality assessments provide an unprecedented opportunity to prepare ALL students, no matter where they live. It will take all of us to support our students and teachers as they rise to the challenge of higher standards."

Common Core Reading: "I leveled everything." BUT that's a problem!

With the Common Core State Standards' emphasis on "complex texts," some critics worry kids are being asked to struggle too much. We ask: How much is too much?

 

"I leveled everything," says Jennifer Jump of her days teaching third grade in Marshalltown, Iowa. "All of the books in my classroom were leveled. My students were leveled. They knew their level."


That's a problem, says Catherine Snow of the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

"If you're never teaching them complex stuff," Snow says, "they never learn complex stuff."

And make no mistake: the Common Core standards require that kids learn complex stuff."

A search of the Common Core English Language Arts Standards turns up one remarkable word 105 times. It is "complex" (or "complexity").

Prediction: "more than half of students will fall short of the marks that connote grade-level skills"

Prediction: "more than half of students will fall short of the marks that connote grade-level skills" | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Prediction: more than half of students will fall short of the marks that connote grade-level skills on its tests.

 

"In a move likely to cause political and academic stress in many states, a consortium that is designing assessments for the Common Core State Standards released data Monday projecting that more than half of students will fall short of the marks that connote grade-level skills on its tests of English/language arts and mathematics.

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium test has four achievement categories. Students must score at Level 3 or higher to be considered proficient in the skills and knowledge for their grades. According to cut scores approved Friday night by the 22-state consortium, 41 percent of 11th graders will show proficiency in English/language arts, and 33 percent will do so in math. In elementary and middle school, 38 percent to 44 percent will meet the proficiency mark in English/language arts, and 32 percent to 39 percent will do so in math."

Level 4, the highest level of the 11th grade Smarter Balanced test, is meant to indicate readiness for entry-level, credit-bearing courses in college, and comes with an exemption from remedial coursework at many universities. Eleven percent of students would qualify for those exemptions.

Some are simply a reminder but worth repeating. It talks about using colour codes for folders (more choices would be good!), adding numbers to file names to help with sorting, using the star option for special files and, obscurely, using Google forms for to-do lists!

Could it be about both? Research is not always just numbers. It can be about teachers telling their stories and describing teaching as a phenomenological experience. What is teaching? How do we each experience teaching?
