Gap Analysis Align to highest, most authentic levels Concepts and Processes Align with other state curricular components ELPS, TOP Align with spiraling functions (future and previously learned concepts) and prerequisites Sample Units TAKS-TEKS-ELPS-TELPAS Alignment and Linkages:  TAKS-TEKS-ELPS-TELPAS Alignment and Linkages Sheltered Instruction Content Objectives TEKS Language Objectives ELPS TAKS TELPAS TOP:  TOP Beginning Intermediate Advanced Advanced High ELPS:  ELPS The ELP standards include second language acquisition skills that enable limited English proficient students to become fluent in English. In order for these students to learn the academic English necessary for academic learning, their second language acquisition skills must be addressed in all their academic classes, whether they are learning mathematics, science, or other subjects. The ELP standards also include the language arts skills that all Texas students are required to be taught. Where do we have ELPS:  Where do we have ELPS Bilingual and ESL language arts TEKS Science (Elementary) Social Studies (all levels) Math (under development) How will ICAT and WebCCAT help to align ELPS?:  How will ICAT and WebCCAT help to align ELPS? View online Adjust benchmarks or other assessments :  Adjust benchmarks or other assessments Use WebCCAT to find higher level questions and more difficult questions as necessary to: Do quick checks Create unit tests Create benchmarks Find multiple choice and more authentic assessments Item Counts:  Item Counts Excel Vertical Alignment with Informed Instruction:  Vertical Alignment with Informed Instruction Technology based = ease of search and sort Objectives, S.E.s, and assessments aligned to high stakes assessments and across grade levels and cross-referenced by skills, concepts, and processes Finding and filling in gaps Builds common vocabulary Escalates expectations with regard to rigor and sophistication Redundancies clarified, specific examples given, terms defined Performance descriptors that “inform” the TEKS What information does Informed Instruction include?:  What information does Informed Instruction include? All TEKS for… ELA – Kinder through English IV Math – Kinder through Pre-Calculus Social Studies – Kinder through Gov/Eco Science – Kinder through Physics Let’s Talk TEKS…:  Let’s Talk TEKS… Aligned to TAKS It’s the law Aligned to textbooks (somewhat) Some are very specific (know these dates; write for various purposes including to inform, persuade, entertain) Let’s Talk TEKS…:  Let’s Talk TEKS… Some Vague Some Ambiguous Written in terms some teachers may not understand (orthographic pattern?) Some leave content wide open for selection What information does Informed Instruction include?:  What information does Informed Instruction include? Clarifications of each Student Expectation List of examples Define terms more specifically Clear up vagueness and ambiguity Example of Clarification:  Example of Clarification K.07A: describe one object in relation to another using informal language; and Clarification: Use terms such as over, under, above, and below. Example of Clarification:  Example of Clarification A2.b1B: In solving problems, the student collects and organizes the data, makes scatterplots (including identifying positive, negative, and no correlation), fits the curves to the appropriate parent function, interprets the results, and proceeds to model, predict, and make decisions and critical judgments. Clarification: Parent functions to include: linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, rational, and square root. What information does Informed Instruction include?:  What information does Informed Instruction include? Performance Descriptor for each Student Expectation Suggestions for assessment Address necessary level of sophistication and rigor Aligned to TAKS tests from 2003, 2004, and 2006 Example of Performance Descriptor:  Example of Performance Descriptor K.01A: use one-to-one correspondence and language to describe relative sizes of sets of concrete objects; Performance Descriptor: Given two small cups of pasta, cubes, beans, etc. students will pour objects out and line sets side by side. They verbally describe their sets. "I have two more pebbles than you." "We have the same number of cubes." "You have one less bean than I do." Example of Performance Descriptor:  Example of Performance Descriptor 5.03A: use addition and subtraction to solve problems involving whole numbers and decimals; Performance Descriptor: Students will be able to use less than and more than terminology from a worded problem to apply subtraction and addition processes to solve (Carrie has 300 coins. She has 125 more than Mike and 50 fewer than Sara. How many coins does Mike have?) (TAKS 04). Example of Performance Descriptor:  Example of Performance Descriptor 8.12A: select the appropriate measure of central tendency to describe a set of data for a particular purpose; Performance Descriptor: Students will be able to choose the correct measure of central tendency for given real-world situations such as determining the most popular color of vehicle sold from a frequency table or the measure which would assist a store in making a week's worth of sales appear the most profitable (TAKS 03 and 04). Example of Performance Descriptor:  Example of Performance Descriptor G.b4: The student selects an appropriate representation (concrete, pictorial, graphical, verbal, or symbolic) in order to solve problems. Performance Descriptor: Given an illustration of a composite figure (trapezoid), students will be able to choose the equation that can be used to determine the total area when the length of only two sides is given (TAKS 03) What information does Informed Instruction include?:  What information does Informed Instruction include? Shells for local additions: Grading Period Activities/Lessons/Instructional Strategies/Resources Modifications ESL/Special Ed/GT Local Objectives Graduate Expectations What can Informed Instruction do?:  What can Informed Instruction do?
