Subject: Bias and Sensitivity Recommendation Committee

 

Kathi-

I wanted you to know that the Wa. State Bias and Sensitivity Review/Recommendation Committee that I was selected to serve on this past Monday and yesterday was fantastic! It was well organized, brilliantly facilitated, and the work was incredibly meaningful.

The first part was spent understanding Bias and Sensitivity issues that should be considered when looking at the Common Core State Standards. We read research, reviewed how bias was often used in different categories and then applied this new “viewing lens” to review a piece of fiction and a few math word problems.

The rest of the first day and all day on Tuesday we worked on applying a bias free and sensitive approach to creating recommendations for implementing the new CCSS. I worked on the 3-5 Math ad hoc and with the other math band groups to create a document with broad recommendations as well as specific recommendations for certain standards.

The document will be submitted and reviewed by the legislature before Sup. Dorn signs the final adoption of the CCSS. I recommended to Greta Bornemann, Mathematics Director for OSPI, that this work also be shared with the two companies creating the CCSS assessments.

I learned so much and was connected to many different educational professionals from around the state. I hope to team with Janet Bettinger this fall and team- teach a prof. development session related to B&S issues and the CCSSs. I hope to talk with you soon about getting on the calendar.
