## Video - CCRS English Language Arts (ELA) 101 Instructional Shifts, Text Complexity & Vocabulary

with ATDN Staff

CCRS ELA 101 Instructional Shifts, Text Complexity, & Vocabulary (video session) Part 1 of 2The College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) for Adult Education are a set of college and career readiness standards that reflect the content most relevant to preparing adult students for success in colleges, technical training programs, work and citizenship. In this session participants will investigate the standards and review the key Instructional Shifts identified in the areas of English/Language Arts. The importance of choosing texts of appropriate complexity and teaching academic vocabulary will be identified in this training. Activities will encourage a deeper understanding of how to use standards when planning lessons in all content areas.

Assignment: Qualitative Analysis of Text

Objective: Participants will become familiar with the CCRS document, describe the three key shifts, choose appropriate text for their adult learners, and identify academic vocabulary.

*NOTE: ELA101 and ELA102 MUST be taken consecutively.

## Video - CCRS English Language Arts (ELA) 102 Instructional Shifts, Evidence & Building Knowledge-

with ATDN Staff

CCRS ELA 102 Instructional Shifts, Evidence, & Building Knowledge (Video session) Part 2 of 2 Building on work done in ELA 101, participants will continue to investigate standards and review the key instructional shifts. We will focus on the importance of text dependent questions, citing evidence in speaking and writing, and how this helps to build students’ knowledge. Activities will encourage a deeper understanding of how to implement CCRS in instruction in all classrooms.

Assignment: Lesson PlanParticipants must have completed ELA 101 before attending ELA 102.Objective: Building on ELA 101, participants will create a lesson plan integrating ELA standards appropriate for their adult learners.

*NOTE: ELA101 and ELA102 MUST be taken consecutively.

## Video - CCRS Math (101) B Key Instructional Shifts

with ATDN Staff

CCRS Math 101(B) Key Instructional Shifts (video) Part 2 of 4 videos. Building on the work of 101(A), participants will become familiar with the standards and how to navigate them. We will continue to investigate the Key Instructional Shifts mathematics instruction must make in order for students to succeed. The importance of taking the time to delve deeply into the concepts at the heart of mathematics will be illustrated. By making connections between mathematical concepts, activities will encourage ways to see mathematics as more than discrete sets of rules to be memorized. The content standards calling for a balance of conceptual understanding, fluency with procedures, and application to real-world and mathematical contexts will be explored. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of how to use standards when planning math instruction.

Purpose:

Develop a working knowledge of the Key Instructional Shifts

Consider how Shifting practice unfolds in the classroom

Examine the Key Instructional Shifts when designing instruction for adult learners

Participants must have completed Math 101(A) before attending Math 101(B).

## Video - CCRS Math (102) B Standards for Mathematical Practice

with ATDN Staff

CCRS Math 102(B) Standards for Mathematical Practice (vido session) Part 4 of 4 videos. Building on work of the CCRS Math 102(A) video, participants will experience problems worth puzzling through and analyze the habits of mind required to solve those problems. The video will investigate Practices through activities that illustrate the ways students are to engage with the subject matter of the content standards. The skills of complex problem solving, modeling, precise communication, and making connections will be practiced and discussed. Activities will encourage a deeper understanding of how to implement CCRS in instruction. Participants will create a standards-based lesson plan or draft unit outline that integrates both the Key Instructional Shifts and the Standards for Mathematical Practice with priority content standards.

Assignment: Unit Plan Purpose:

Develop a working understanding of the Standards for Mathematical Practice

Consider ways and resources to elicit Standards for Mathematical Practice from students

Examine the Standards for Mathematical Practice when designing instruction

Participants must have completed Math 101(A) & 101(B) and Math 102(A) before attending Math 102(B).
