ESSENTIAL STANDARDS


Key foundations
Key Foundations

  • The Common Core State Standards are written using the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy.

  • Next year (2012-2013) all public schools in NC will transition from Standard Course of Study to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).


Revised bloom s taxonomy
Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy

  • Provides the framework used for all NC Essential Standards.

  • Common language for ALL curriculum areas.

  • The six categories were changed in 2001 from a noun to verb.

  • Focus is on more of a product to show learning.

  • The revision provides a clear & concise representation of the alignment between standards & educational goals.

OVERVIEW OF THE

ELA COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS

Participants will gain an understanding of the

design and organization of the CCSS document.


Design
Design

There are four strands:

  • Reading

  • + Reading Foundational Skills K-5

  • Writing

  • Speaking and Listening

  • Language

    The ELA Common Core supports an integrated model of literacy.

    There are media requirements blended throughout.


Reading foundational skills grades k 5
Reading Foundational SkillsGrades K-5

  • Print concepts (K−1)

  • Phonological awareness (K−1)

  • Phonics and word recognition (K−5)

  • Fluency (K−5)


College and career readiness ccr anchor standards
College and Career Readiness (CCR) Anchor Standards

  • The CCR Anchor Standards:

  • Have broad expectations consistent across grades and content areas.

  • Are based on evidence

  • about college and workforce training expectations.

  • Expect instruction to cover a broad range of increasingly challenging text.


Intentional design limitations
Intentional Design Limitations

The Standards do NOT define:

  • How teachers should teach.

  • All that can or should be taught.

  • The nature of advanced work beyond the core.

  • The interventions needed for students well below grade level.

  • The full range of support for English Language Learners and students with special needs.

  • Everything needed to be college and career ready.


High School Literature

  • The scope and sequence of literature allows for a literary experience that carries not only a global perspective but an opportunity to view U.S. literature and literary nonfiction within a global lens.

The literature selections provide a vehicle by which to teach the CCSS standards and ensure that students will have a rich and diverse understanding of literature by the end of their senior year.


Design considerations
Design Considerations

  • The Standards use individual grade levels in kindergarten through Grade 8 to provide useful specificity; the Standards use two-year bands in grades 9-12 to allow schools, districts, and states flexibility in high school course design.
