  • State-led
  • Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
  • National Governors Association (NGA)

Why do we need common standards? Why now?

Disparate standards

Different skills

Global competition

Preparation for career/college

why is this important for students teachers and parents
Why is This Important for Students, Teachers, and Parents?

College and work

Consistent expectations

Clear, focused guide

key features of the standards
Key Features of the Standards
  • Rigorous content with application
  • Evidence and research
  • Internationally benchmarked
ela standards advances
ELA Standards Advances
  • Complex texts, quality, range
  • Evidence that reading is anchored in the college and career readiness (CCR) standards.
  • Rich reading of literature as well as extensive reading in science, history/social studies, and other disciplines.

Williams, Vera. A Chair for My Mother

New York: Greenwillow Books, 1982.

My mother works as a waitress in the Blue Tile Diner. After school sometimes I go to meet her there. Then her boss, Josephine, gives me a job too.

I wash the salts and peppers and fill the ketchups. One time I peeled all the onions for the onion soup. When I finish, Josephine says, “Good work, honey,” and pays me. And every time, I put half of my money into the jar.

MacLachlan, Patricia. Sarah, Plain and Tall

New York: HarperCollins, 1985

From Chapter I

I wiped my hands on my apron and went to the window. Outside, the prairie reached out and touched the places where the sky came down. Though the winter was nearly over, there were patches of snow everywhere. I looked at the long dirt road that crawled across the plains, remembering the morning that Mama had died, cruel and sunny. They had come for her in a wagon and taken her away to be buried. And then the cousins and aunts and uncles had come and tried to fill up the house. But they couldn’t.

Slowly, one by one, they left. And then the days seemed long and dark like winter days, even though it wasn’t winter. And Papa didn’t sing.

  • Focusstrongly where the Standards focus
  • Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades
  • Rigor: Require fluency, application, and deep understanding

Standards for Mathematical Practice

  • Describe mathematical “habits of mind”
  • Offer standards for mathematical proficiency: reasoning, problem solving, modeling, decision making, and engagement
  • Connect with content standards in each grade
