What are the common core state standards

What Are the Common Core State Standards?


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“Common Core Standards define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in entry-level, credit-bearing academic college courses and in workforce training programs.”

(NGA & CCSSO, 2010)


What is the purpose of the standards

What Is the Purpose of the Standards?

  • To foster higher student achievement in the United States.

  • To equalize educational opportunity.


How does reading horizons correlate to the common core state standards ccss

How Does Reading Horizons Correlate to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?


Ccss for grades 4 5

CCSS for Grades 4-5


Ccss for grades 4 51

CCSS for Grades 4-5

  • Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.

    • Use combined knowledge of all letter-sound correspondences, syllabication patterns, and morphology (e.g., roots and affixes) to read accurately unfamiliar multisyllabic words in context and out of context.


Phonics and word recognition

Phonics and Word Recognition

  • Letter-sound and spelling-sound correspondences

  • Long and short vowel spellings (including final e and vowel teams)

  • Grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words

  • Decode multi-syllabic words

  • Break words into syllables

  • Prefixes and suffixes


Language conventions

Language Conventions

  • Parts of speech (nouns, pronouns, etc.)

  • Sentence structure

  • Capitalization and punctuation

  • Spelling


Reading horizons and the common core

Reading Horizons and the Common Core

The Reading Horizons methodology teaches the complete range of foundational skills outlined in the CCSS. These skills are taught in a progression that allows students to succeed in decoding with automaticity and fluency, building the foundation that is necessary for students to independently read and comprehend grade level text as it is defined in the CCSS.


Reading strategies application

Reading Strategies: Application

“Jabberwocky”

By Lewis Carroll

(from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

`Twasbrillig, and the slithytoves  Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:All mimsy were the borogoves,  And the momerathsoutgrabe.


Foundational skills

Foundational Skills

“These foundational skills…are necessary and important components of an effective, comprehensive reading program designed to develop proficient readers with the capacity to comprehend texts across a range of types and disciplines.”

(NGA & CCSSO, 2010)


Teacher responsibility

Teacher Responsibility


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“Standards do not tell teachers how to teach, but they do help teachers figure out the knowledge and skills their students should have so that teachers can build the best lessons and environments for their classrooms.”

(NGA & CCSSO, 2010)


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“By emphasizing required achievements, the Standards leave room for teachers, curriculum developers, and states to determine how those goals should be reached and what additional topics should be addressed…Teachersare thus free to provide students with whatever tools and knowledge their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful for meeting the goals set out in the Standards.”

(NGA & CCSSO, 2010)


Limitations teacher responsibility

Limitations = Teacher Responsibility

  • No accommodations for students below grade-level expectations are provided.


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“The Standards set grade-specific standards but do not define the intervention methods or materials necessary to support students who are well below or well above grade-level expectations.”

(NGA & CCSSO, 2010)


Limitations teacher responsibility1

Limitations = Teacher Responsibility

  • No accommodations for students below grade-level expectations.

  • The Standards do not describe all that can or should be taught. This is left to the discretion of the teachers and curriculum developers.


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“While the Standards focus on what is most essential, they do not describe all that can or should be taught. A great deal is left to the discretion of teachers and curriculum developers. The aim of the Standards is to articulate the fundamentals, not to set out an exhaustive list or a set of restrictions that limits what can be taught beyond what is specified herein.”


Limitations teacher responsibility2

Limitations = Teacher Responsibility

  • No accommodations for students below grade-level expectations.

  • Standards do not describe all that can or should be taught; left to the discretion of the teachers and curriculum developers.

  • Permit appropriate accommodations for students with special needs and English Language Learners.


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

  • Without defining the full range of supports appropriate for English language learners and students with special needs, permit appropriate accommodations to ensure maximum participation to provide “the opportunity to learn and meet the same high standards necessary in their post-high school lives.”

What about students with special needs

What About Students with Special Needs?

“In order for students with disabilities to meet high academic standards and to fully demonstrate their conceptual and procedural knowledge and skills in mathematics, reading, writing, speaking and listening (English language arts), their instruction must incorporate supports and accommodations, including…”

What about ELLs?

“Teachers must build on [ELLs’] enormous reservoir of talent and provide those students who need it with additional time and appropriate instructional support.”


The common core for ells

The Common Core for ELLs

  • Ongoing assessment and feedback to guide learning


Reading horizons assessments

Reading Horizons Assessments

  • Software assessments include:

    • Word Recognition

    • Most Common Words

    • Word Segmentation

    • Comprehension measures for each reading passage

    • Chapter Tests

  • Each assessment provides the teacher with clear and useful information to monitor the progress of each student, as well as the whole class.


Materials for assessment

Materials for Assessment

  • The Guided Practice and Dictation section of each lesson provides the teacher with an opportunity to informally assess each student as they spell and read each word and sentence the teacher dictates.

  • Skill Checks were designed to check for student mastery to allow students to “test out” of skills they already know.

  • Six chapter assessments are offered to assess student progress. These assessments are administered at the end of each chapter and can be effective tools to monitor progress, as well as guide instruction.

Adult education

Adult Education

  • “If the standards (for what a high school graduate is expected to know and be able to do to compete effectively in a 21st century economy) rise to a new level, it stands to reason that the same expectations will apply to students completing a program in adult education.”

    (www.mcgraw-hillresearchfoundation.org)


In conclusion

In Conclusion…


Reading horizons and the common core state standards

“The Standards are intended to be a living work: as new and better evidence emerges, the Standards will be revised accordingly.”
