California Common Core Standards

CCCS = California Common Core Standards

Federal purpose for common core standards
Federal Purpose for Common Core Standards

  • Common Core standards corresponds with the original NCLB timeline of 2014

  • Students need real world skills for college and the workforce

  • Standards address international competition, equity and collaboration

Steps in development of ccs
Steps in Development of CCS

  • The development of these National Common Core Standards included:

    • Parents

    • Educators

    • Content Experts

    • Researchers

    • National Organizations

    • Community leaders from 48 states

    • Input from top performing countries – Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Finland, England, India

  • Each state is required to start with the National Common Core standards as written.

  • California common core standards1
    California Common Core Standards

    • California adopted the Common Core (National) in August 2010 - CCS

    • California inserted15% of current state standards into CCS

    • Final set for California are called California Common Core Standards or CCCS

    California common core standards2
    California Common Core Standards

    • Aligned with college and work force expectations

    • Clear, understandable, and consistent

    • Rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order skills

    • Recognition of the strengths and lessons of current state standards

    Cccs for ela and literacy in history social studies science and technical subjects
    CCCS for ELA and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects

    • ELA standards focus equally on fiction and non-fiction

    • Inclusion of Listening and Speaking Standards in ELA for all students

    • Stronger description of standard English conventions and language vocabulary acquisition

    • Separate set of literacy standards for content courses (6th – 12th) which focus on communication, reading and writing skills required for college and career success

    Cccs for mathematics
    CCCS for Mathematics

    • CCCS standards for mathematics:

      • Focus on the Mathematical Practice Standards K-12

      • Develop Conceptual Understanding

      • Emphasis on Mastery

      • Balance mathematical understanding and procedural skill

      • Focus on Fractions

      • Are internationally benchmarked

    Cccs standards for mathematical practice k 12
    CCCS Standards for Mathematical Practice K-12

    • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

    • Reason abstractly and quantitatively

    • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others

    • Model with mathematics

    • Use appropriate tools strategically

    • Attend to precision

    • Look for and make use of structure

    • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

    8 th grade algebra
    8th Grade Algebra

    • CCS (National) do not have Algebra as an 8th grade standard; rather embedded throughout grade levels

    • California CCS (State) included the 8th Grade Algebra course current state standards to the CCCS

    • Two pathways in the CCCS for 8th grade

      • 8th grade Algebra

      • 8th grade Mathematics

    High school mathematics
    High School Mathematics

    • Standards are listed as conceptual categories rather than courses.

      • Number and Quantity

      • Algebra

      • Functions

      • Modeling

      • Geometry

      • Statistics and Probability

    High school mathematics pathways
    High School Mathematics Pathways

    • HS pathways could be:

      • Course specific (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra II, etc)

      • Grade level specific with conceptual categories woven through each level (9th grade, 10th grade, etc)

    • State is still deciding if this is a state or local decision as to pathway options for students

    Standard of modeling
    Standard of Modeling

    • Links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work and decision-making.

    • A model can be very simple, or quite complex.

    • Modeling is best interpreted not as a collection of isolated topics but rather in relation to other standards.

    • Examples:

      • Design the layout of the stalls in a school fair so as to raise as much money as possible.

    Standards correlations for cccs
    Standards Correlations for CCCS

    • It is not recommended that districts do a one to one correlation when adopting the CCCS

    • In order to highlight the differences in depth and rigor – see handout 2

    • Emphasis on: gathering information, synthesizing information, communicating information, using technology and strong critical analysis skills

    Accountability system
    Accountability System

    • The CCCS are expected to be implemented by 2012-2013

    • CST will be replaced with a national exam in 2014- 2015

    • National assessments will be administered in grade 3-8 and once in high school

    • New national exams are being developed by two major organizations:

      • Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) – Washington State

      • Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) - Florida

    New accountability system
    New Accountability System

    • Assessment will also include documentation that students are on track to become college and career ready.

    • Assessments are proposed to be NWEA “like”, assessing 4 times a year and computer based and project based.

    • Federal government is challenging all states to develop (if they have not already) a growth model rather than a proficiency model of assessment.

    • California currently has a growth model.

    Next steps for scusd
    Next Steps for SCUSD

    • Create awareness of CCCS with parents, community members, teachers and students

    • Remain informed about state timeline and guidelines for lifting the suspension on framework development and instructional materials adoptions

    • Continue to promote and enhance Performance Based Assessments currently being used in our district (i.e. MAC, MS Science PBA, Physics PBA, Writing PBAs K-12) because they are similar in nature to the expected National Exam

    Next steps for scusd1
    Next Steps for SCUSD

    • Provide Professional Development for teachers and administrators around CCCS

    • Begin now to teach academic language used in CCCS which is not currently in the state standards

    • Develop curriculum teams to revise pacing guides for CCCS in SCUSD

    • Prepare and plan for enhanced technology needs
