presentation overview
Presentation Overview
  • Reminder of Common Core Standards Initiative and related process
    • Phase One: College & Career Readiness Standards
    • Phase Two: K-12 Grade Level Standards
  • Oregon’s feedback process and observations
  • Next steps and considerations
common core state standards initiative1
Common Core State Standards Initiative
  • Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and National Governor’s Association (NGA) leading the effort
  • Building on work of Achieve
  • Goals of initiative:
    • Fewer, clearer and higher-level standards
    • Aligned with college and work expectations
    • Internationally benchmarked
    • Consistent learning expectations across states
common core state standards initiative2
Common Core State Standards Initiative
  • Oregon signed Memorandum of Agreement last summer
  • Participation a requirement of Race to the Top application
  • Participating states asked to adopt 100% of the common core standards. States may then add additional standards if desired, but no more than 15% of total number of standards (115% rule)
common core state standards two phases
Common Core State Standards: Two Phases

Phase 1: College and career-readiness standards -end of high school expectations

  • Definitions of “College readiness” and “career readiness”
  • Designed to anchor K-12 standards

Phase 2: K–12 grade level standards- grade by grade articulation of the common core

  • Designed to serve as guide & tool for aligning instruction, curriculum, assessment & teacher supports, & systems of accountability

Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards-Feedback and Outreach
  • Early drafts sent to chief state school officers and state higher education officers for internal state review
  • Drafts posted to CCSSI website for public feedback
  • Outreach to post-secondary partners

common k 12 grade level standards
Common K-12 Grade Level Standards
  • First draft of Mathematics and ELA K-12 standards released November 2009-incomplete version (K-8 only)
  • Second draft released January 14th for additional state agency review (K-8 and HS)

CCSSI’s Feedback Questions

  • Is the architecture of the draft standards clear and easy to follow for all audiences (e.g., teachers, administrators, curriculum developers, students, general public)?
  • Does the document present a rigorous, yet reasonable continuum of expectations for student learning in each discipline?

CCSSI’s Feedback Questions

3. Is the language in this draft clear, concise, and precise?  Will teachers be able to readily identify the standards within the document?

4.One of our stated goals for the common core state standards is that they are fewer, clearer and higher.  Do these standards meet those criteria?

English/Language Arts

  • Content areas include:
    • reading & literature
    • writing & research

English/Language Arts

General observations:

-Standards include description of the required text complexity by grade/grade span

-Are specific standards written for key text types (e.g., narrative, informative and explanatory, argument)

Concerns:

-Unclear hierarchy within document

-Standards development approach unclear

-Repetition of standards across grade levels

-Use of grade spans, not grade levels

-Emphasis on four-year college readiness
