California Common Core Standards

CCCS = California Common Core Standards

- Common Core standards corresponds with the original NCLB timeline of 2014
- Students need real world skills for college and the workforce
- Standards address international competition, equity and collaboration

- The development of these National Common Core Standards included:
- Parents
- Educators
- Content Experts
- Researchers
- National Organizations
- Community leaders from 48 states
- Input from top performing countries – Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Finland, England, India

- California adopted the Common Core (National) in August 2010 - CCS
- California inserted15% of current state standards into CCS
- Final set for California are called California Common Core Standards or CCCS

- Aligned with college and work force expectations
- Clear, understandable, and consistent
- Rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order skills
- Recognition of the strengths and lessons of current state standards

- ELA standards focus equally on fiction and non-fiction
- Inclusion of Listening and Speaking Standards in ELA for all students
- Stronger description of standard English conventions and language vocabulary acquisition
- Separate set of literacy standards for content courses (6th – 12th) which focus on communication, reading and writing skills required for college and career success

- CCCS standards for mathematics:
- Focus on the Mathematical Practice Standards K-12
- Develop Conceptual Understanding
- Emphasis on Mastery
- Balance mathematical understanding and procedural skill
- Focus on Fractions
- Are internationally benchmarked

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
- Model with mathematics
- Use appropriate tools strategically
- Attend to precision
- Look for and make use of structure
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

- CCS (National) do not have Algebra as an 8th grade standard; rather embedded throughout grade levels
- California CCS (State) included the 8th Grade Algebra course current state standards to the CCCS
- Two pathways in the CCCS for 8th grade
- 8th grade Algebra
- 8th grade Mathematics

- Standards are listed as conceptual categories rather than courses.
- Number and Quantity
- Algebra
- Functions
- Modeling
- Geometry
- Statistics and Probability

- HS pathways could be:
- Course specific (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, etc)
- Grade level specific with conceptual categories woven through each level (9th grade, 10th grade, etc)

- State is still deciding if this is a state or local decision as to pathway options for students

- Links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work and decision-making.
- A model can be very simple, or quite complex.
- Modeling is best interpreted not as a collection of isolated topics but rather in relation to other standards.
- Examples:
- Design the layout of the stalls in a school fair so as to raise as much money as possible.

- It is not recommended that districts do a one to one correlation when adopting the CCCS
- In order to highlight the differences in depth and rigor – see handout 2
- Emphasis on: gathering information, synthesizing information, communicating information, using technology and strong critical analysis skills

- The CCCS are expected to be implemented by 2012-2013
- CST will be replaced with a national exam in 2014- 2015
- National assessments will be administered in grade 3-8 and once in high school
- New national exams are being developed by two major organizations:
- Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) – Washington State
- Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) - Florida

- Assessment will also include documentation that students are on track to become college and career ready.
- Assessments are proposed to be NWEA “like”, assessing 4 times a year and computer based and project based.
- Federal government is challenging all states to develop (if they have not already) a growth model rather than a proficiency model of assessment.
- California currently has a growth model.

- Create awareness of CCCS with parents, community members, teachers and students
- Remain informed about state timeline and guidelines for lifting the suspension on framework development and instructional materials adoptions
- Continue to promote and enhance Performance Based Assessments currently being used in our district (i.e. MAC, MS Science PBA, Physics PBA, Writing PBAs K-12) because they are similar in nature to the expected National Exam

- Provide Professional Development for teachers and administrators around CCCS
- Begin now to teach academic language used in CCCS which is not currently in the state standards
- Develop curriculum teams to revise pacing guides for CCCS in SCUSD
- Prepare and plan for enhanced technology needs
