Transitioning to Instruction Based on the Common Core State Standards

Curriculum Council

October 14, 2011

Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies & Science and Technical Subjects

- Reading and writing across the curriculum
- Evaluating text complexity
- Attention to vocabulary acquisition
- Drawing evidence from sources and writing arguments
- Engage in a range of collaborative interactions
- Integration of media sources across standards

1. Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum

Content Theme

Literacy is an important skill, not only in English language arts, but also in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects.

History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects Standard

Grades 9-10: Standard #9

English Language Arts Standard

Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

2. Evaluating Text Complexity

Overview of Text Complexity

Content Theme

- Instruction should explicitly acknowledge that texts vary in their level of complexity, and that meanings can be derived from the texts themselves.
- The reading standards place equal emphasis on the sophistication of what students read and the skill with which they read.

Qualitative measures – levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demands

Quantitative measures – readability and other scores of text complexity

Quantitative

Qualitative

Reader and Task – background knowledge of reader, motivation, interests, and complexity generated by tasks assigned

Reader and Task

Content Theme

- Awareness of nuances that can be conveyed through various words and their meanings
- Duck as a noun vs. Duck as a verb
- Use word roots to understand new words
- bookshelf, notebook, bookmark

- Clarify meaning of a word or phrase based on its context
- Demonstrate an understanding of word relationships
- toss, throw, hurl
- tell, retell

Content Theme

4. Drawing Evidence from Sources and Writing Arguments

The critical role of using evidence in analyzing text, evaluating arguments, and understanding the author’s point of view.

Progression of the Writing Standards

Content Theme

Engage effectively (with diverse partners) in a range of collaborative discussions

- one-on-one
- in groups
- teacher-led

Speaking and Listening, Grade 5

Content Theme

Grade 6 Examples Across the Strands

Reading Standards for Informational Text

- Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
Writing Standards

- Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single sitting.
Speaking and Listening Standards

- Include multimedia components (e.g., graphics, images, music, sound) and visual displays in presentations to clarify information.

Review the themes listed above, what are some generalizations that you can make about the Common Core Standards in ELA and Literacy?

- Reading and writing across the curriculum
- Evaluating text complexity
- Attention to vocabulary acquisition
- Drawing evidence from sources and writing arguments
- Engage in a range of collaborative interactions
- Integration of media sources across standards

Focused Note-Taking (FNT)

Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID)

Mathematics

Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

- Standards for Mathematical Practice and Content
- Emphasize Both Conceptual Understanding & Mathematical Fluency
- Shift Grade Levels at which Topics are Taught
- Strong Emphasis on Understanding Fractions
- There are Options for Grade 8
- High School Standards Organized Around Conceptual Categories (not Courses)

Describe Mathematical “Habits of Mind”

Emphasize mathematical knowing not knowledge

Practices are cross-cutting. They related to the content standards at ALL grade-levels

Content Theme

Content Theme

- Mathematics as sense making
- Students know not only how to apply skills but also when to apply them and why they are being applied.

Understand that that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. (1.NBT.2)

Content Theme

2. Emphasize Both Conceptual Understanding & Mathematical Fluency

- Mathematics as skills and procedures
- The ability to retrieve facts automatically from long-term memory, make solving more complex problems quicker and less likely to result in errors.

… by the end of grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers. (3.OA.7)

Content Theme

3. Shift Grade Levels at which Topics are Taught

17

Content Theme

- Represent fractions with number lines by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into equal parts. (3.NF.2.a)

1/5

1/5

1

Keeps the relationship between part and whole clearly visible.

Content Theme

- The Goal for 8th grade students is Algebra 1, but not all students have the necessary skills
- There are two sets of standards for grade 8. Each prepare students for college and career
- CCCS for 8th grade math
- Standards for Algebra 1
- A combination of 8th grade CCSS,
- the Algebra content cluster, and
- CA’s existing Algebra I standards

≈ 51 standards in all!

Content Theme

- High schools standards are grouped by conceptual themes (not by grade level or course title). The themes are
- Number and quantity
- Algebra
- Functions
- Modeling
- Geometry
- Probability and Statistics

- () Standards that incorporate modeling
- (+) Standards that are needed for advanced coursework

- Standards for Mathematical Practice and Content
- Emphasize Both Conceptual Understanding & Mathematical Fluency
- Shifting Grade Levels at which Topics are Taught
- Strong Emphasis on Understanding Fractions
- There are Options for Grade 8
- High School Standards Organized Around Conceptual Categories (not Courses)

Review the themes listed above, what are your observations about the Common Core Standards in Mathematics?
