5 Session Objectives and Agenda Day 1 Participants will be able to: Describe educational equity of instruction. Recognize that the shifts change the focus of teaching with the standards Analyze how the standards create a trajectory Recognize the importance of academic vocabulary in instruction Recognize the components of text complexity Identify instruction that incorporates the first two shifts and standards O O
6 Opening and Community Builder Norms that Support Our Learning Take responsibility for yourself as a learner Honor timeframes (start, end, activity) Be an active and hands-on learner Use technology to enhance learning Strive for equity of voice Contribute to a learning environment in which it is safe to not know 7 Where You Might Be During the Week Inspired by Jennifer Abrams Moments of Validation Moments of Reminding
Moments of New Information Notice where you are at any given time and support yourself and others by: Asking Questions Taking Notes Stretching Yourself 8 Our Approach At UnboundEd, we ground our learning in the intersection of the standards, content, aligned curriculum and the equitable instructional practices that are essential for closing the opportunity gap caused by systemic racism and bias. 9
We are Equity Literate when we have the Ability to recognize biases and inequities, including those that are subtle first in ourselves [and then in the systems we serve] Ability to respond to biases, discrimination and inequities in a thoughtful and equitable manner Ability to redress biases, discrimination and inequalities not only by responding to interpersonal bias, but also studying the ways in which bigger social change happens Ability to cultivate and sustain bias-free, discrimination-free communities [in doing so creating equitable environments],which requires an understanding that doing so is a basic responsibility for everyone in a civil society Defining Equity Equity is engaging in practices that meet students where they are and advances their learning by giving them what they need. Its about fairness, not sameness. Equity ensures that all children regardless of circumstances are receiving high-quality and Standards-aligned instruction with access
to high-quality materials and resources. We want to ensure that Standards-aligned instruction is a pathway to the equitable practices needed to close the gaps caused by systemic and systematic racism, bias, and poverty. All week, we will explore our learning through an equity lens, and we will capture those moments visibly here in our room. 11 What makes something equitable or inequitable? What inequities exist? What individual responsibilities do we have to address them? Our Conversations Invent Us 1. Through our speech and our silence, we become our smaller or larger selves. 2. Through our speech and our silence, we diminish or enhance the other person, and we narrow or expand the possibilities between us. 3. How we use our voice determines the quality of our
relationships, who we are in the world, and what the world can be and might become. 4. Clearly, a lot is at stake here. Harriet Lerner, The Dance of Connection 13 Equity Envision It So You Can See It For all educators, it is important to have a clear vision of what educationally equitable environments. Gorksi and Salwell provide 5 Principles to guide you. 4 min jot down concrete examples of what an equitable education environment would look like, sound like, and feel like to students, families, and staff. 6 min share in pairs at your tables, looking for commonalities and new ideas to expand your thinking 5 min whole group sharing of ideas you heard that will help all of us Looks Like Sounds Like
Feels Like O O 14 Myth Busting Higher standards do NOT mean we are no longer teaching our students to LOVE reading. Development of the LOVE of reading which is so clearly learned and inspired by elementary teachers is absolutely critical. Perhaps more important than it ever was. BUT No one can learn to LOVE reading without first learning how to read. AND Historically, we havent always done a great job of teaching students how to read. 15 What does it mean to be College and
Career Ready? The level of preparation students need in order to be ready to enroll and succeed without remediation in credit-bearing entrylevel coursework at a two- or four-year institution, trade school, or technical school.

How do the outcomes remain the same? How do the outcomes change? What students must be able to or know do in order to meet the demands of this standard? 27 Please locate the following in the Reading Standards Define Literary Terms: onomatopoeia, alliteration, assonance, character traits, foreshadowing, pathos, personification, simile Define Plot: rising action, exposition, climax, resolution, plot diagrams Vocabulary Lists Connections: text to self, text to nature, text to world, text to text Kinds of conflict: person v person, person v nature, person v self 28
In Service to the Standards Grade 9-10 standard 4 Grade 11-12 Standard 4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone) Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including words with multiple meanings or language that is particularly fresh, engaging, or beautiful.

Revisiting Agenda and Objectives OBJECTIVES Describe educational equity of instruction. Recognize that the shifts change the focus of teaching with the standards Analyze how the standards create a trajectory Recognize the importance of academic vocabulary in instruction Recognize the components of text complexity Identify instruction that incorporates the first two shifts AGENDA I.

Regular practice with complex text and its academic language 2. Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational 3. Intentionally building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction 35
35 Shift 1: Regular Practice with Complex Text and its Academic Language Read the first three pages (p. 3-5) independently and consider the following: What is Marilyn Adams main claim in this section of the article? What evidence does she use to support her claim? online O O 36 Text Complexity

embedded adverbial em passive voice nominalized form of verb characterize relative clause Academic Language and Vocabulary With table partners discuss: How often do you pre-read class texts with tier 2, or academic vocabulary, in mind?
How much time in class do you intentionally carve out to address academic vocabulary? 44 Lets Learn a New Word Excrescence noun excrescence \ik-skre-sn(t)s, ek-\ a projection or outgrowth especially when abnormal Excrescence 45
What We Know Most vocabulary is learned implicitly. Word learning is most efficient when the reader (listener) already understands the context well. Tiny gains on a dozen words is more efficient than large gains on just one word at a time. What makes vocabulary valuable and important is not the words themselves so much as the understandings they afford.
46 Shift 2: Reading, Writing and Speaking Grounded in Evidence from Text, Both Literary and Informational Which of the following questions most strongly reflects Shift 2? A. Using evidence from the text, Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational by Marilyn Jager Adams, what happened with the SATs in 1977? B. How do the findings from the College Board support Marilyn Jager Adams conclusion ...a great benefit of the common core curriculum is that it would drive a thorough overhaul of the texts we give students to read, and the kinds of learning and thought we expect our reading to support? 47 Executing Shifts Through the Standards CCRA.2: Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize key supporting details and ideas.
KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL DEMANDS Understanding of: Meaning of vocabulary That its possible to have more than one central idea in a text Meaning of analyze What it means for a theme to develop How to summarize How to pick out a relevant detail or supporting idea GOING DEEPER What analysis looks like: Linking relevant supporting details back to a central idea Picking evidence and explaining how that supports ones point Tracing the development of a theme and being able to articulate
it 48 Reading Targets Traditional goal: Students leave the lesson knowing the details of the narrative. State standards goal: students leave the lesson having read, analyzed, and understood what they have READ. 49 Practice: Assessing Text Complexity The Hunger Games Sixty

Equity ensures that all children regardless of circumstances are receiving high-quality and Standards-aligned instruction with access to high-quality materials and resources. We want to ensure that Standards-aligned instruction is a pathway to the equitable practices needed to close the gaps caused by systemic and systematic racism, bias, and poverty. Stronger Every Turn Each time you talk to a partner, you build from and borrow the ideas and language of previous partners. Try to make your answer stronger each time with better and better evidence, examples, and explanations. 6 minutes Bring your notes.
Form triads with people you have not yet spent time with. Share and discuss your written reflection with your partners. Jot down ideas that they share that improve your own discussion or you think are important that you did not consider 6 minutes Find a new triad with two new partners. Repeat the process, incorporating your previous partners feedback into the conversation where appropriate 2 minutes Revise your notes or reconsider your positions based on the conversations. Be prepared to share out. 56 Revisiting Equity Envision It So You Can See It For all educators, it is important to have a clear vision of what educationally equitable environments.
