To begin l.jpg

To Begin…

  • Make a name tent (trifold).

  • On one side put your name and position.

  • On a second side explain what you have done so far in your buildings to implement the Common Core State Standards

  • On the third side write any questions you have.

Targets for this session l.jpg

Targets for this Session

  • Explain the suggested three year implementation plan

  • Define rigor

  • Describe ways to increase rigor in the classroom

  • List resources to support implementation

Three year implementation plan l.jpg

Three Year Implementation Plan

  • Year One (2011-2012)

    • Curriculum Development

      • Mapping

      • Matching

      • Identify gaps with respect to content knowledge

      • Begin to teach the new standards

    • Examination of and initial enhancement of rigor levels in the classroom

      • Identify/begin to implement professional development based on needs

    • Evaluation of resources, including technology

    • Presentation to the Board about Common Core

    • Initial communication to parents/families

Year two 2012 2013 l.jpg

Year Two (2012-2013)

  • Continued enhancement of instructional rigor – professional development where necessary.

  • Teaching of the new standards

  • Review of classroom assessment practices. The goal is to move towards more application based/performance assessments.

  • Integration of technology as relates to the Common Core

  • Purchase of resources

  • Communication at a deeper level with parents/families

  • Consider report card modifications

Year three 2013 2014 l.jpg

Year Three (2013-2014)

  • Full implementation

    • Aligned operational curriculum

    • Enhanced instructional rigor

    • Enhanced level of performance assessments

    • Ongoing purchase of resources

    • Use of technology to support standards proficiency

    • Implementation of standards-based report cards

Year one l.jpg

Year One

  • Curriculum Development through Matching

    • Color coding of the standards

      • Green – “I teach this standard to the performance level stated.”

      • Yellow – “I teach this standard, but not to the performance level.”

      • Red – “I don’t teach this standard.”

    • Also identify what is taught that is not in the standards. Should it be kept in the curriculum?

    • Horizontal and vertical discussions

Matching continued l.jpg

Matching Continued

  • For the standards not currently taught but need to be –

    • What does this standard mean?

      • What are the concepts?

      • What are the performance levels?

    • How should this standard be taught? What resources are available?

    • What assistance do I need?

Resources for matching l.jpg

Resources for Matching

  • The Common Core Standards –

  • Alignment Template (included with this presentation)

  • ISBE Gap analysis (

Curriculum mapping l.jpg

Curriculum Mapping

  • 3 columns – content, skills and assessment

  • Add the standards to the skills column

  • Internet based programs

    • Atlas Rubicon

    • Curriculum Mapper

      Resource – Heidi Hayes Jacobs – “Mapping the Big Picture;” Susan Udelhofen – “Keys to Curriculum Mapping”

Rigor l.jpg


Defined in the Standards themselves

Rigor14 l.jpg


  • Deep teacher content knowledge

  • Profile of a literate student ( )

  • Eight Standards of Mathematical Practice (

  • Increase in text complexity

  • Increase in student use of higher level thinking/reasoning skills

  • Increase in real world unpredictable learning situations (problem-solving, application-based)

Rigor in the classroom l.jpg

Rigor in the Classroom

  • “Creating an environment in which students are expected to learn at high levels

    • Each student is supported so that he or she can learn at high levels

    • Each student demonstrates learning at high levels.”

      Blackburn, Winthrop University

Operational rigor l.jpg

Operational Rigor

  • Implementing learning models - project-based, inquiry-based, and problem-based learning strategies.

  • Use of deep questioning techniques

  • Use of close reading techniques

  • Increasing text complexity

  • Writing to support opinions and arguments with evidence

  • Explicit teaching of reasoning strategies

  • Use of Dr. Willard Daggett’s Rigor and Relevance Framework
