Common Core, domain, focal points, clusters, standards, SAT-10



Connect: Write about 3 new things that you learned today and how this will help you in the classroom?

Connect: How can understanding the common core standards impact your teaching and increase student achievement?

BENCHMARK: Common Core Standards

  • Why Common Core Standards?
  • Layout of Standards
  • NGSSS vs. Common Core Standards
  • How to teach the common core with NGSSS materials?
  • SAT-10 implications
  • Reflection: How can understanding the common core standards impact your teaching and increase student achievement?


Today we will examine the common core standards and determine ways to transition smoothly into teaching these standards.


Review today’s lesson and develop your next steps to use this information n your classroom.


How can understanding the common core standards impact your teaching and increase student achievement?

five steps toward building globally competitive education systems
Five Steps Toward Building Globally Competitive Education Systems
  • Action 1: Upgrade state standards by adopting a common core of internationally benchmarked standards in math and language arts for grades K-12 to ensure that students are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to be globally competitive.
  • Action 2: Leverage states’ collective influence to ensure that textbooks, digital media, curricula, and assessments are aligned to internationally benchmarked standardsand draw on lessons from high-performing nations and states.
  • Action 3: Revise state policies for recruiting, preparing, developing, and supporting teachers and school leadersto reflect the human capital practices of top-performing nations and states around the world.
  • Action 4: Hold schools and systems accountable through monitoring,interventions, and support to ensure consistently high performance, drawing upon international best practices.
  • Action 5: Measure state-level education performance globally by examining student achievement and attainment in an international contextto ensure that, over time, students are receiving the education they need to compete in the 21st century economy.
myths and realities about international comparisons
Myths and Realities about International Comparisons
  • Myth 1: Other countries test a more select, elite group of students.
  • Myth 2: The U.S. performs poorly because of poverty and other family factors.
  • Myth 3: Cultural factors prevent U.S. students from performing as well as those in other nations, particularly Asian countries.
  • Myth 4: Other countries are less diverse.
  • Myth 5: Wealthier countries spend more than the U.S. on education.
  • Myth 6: U.S. attainment rates cannot be compared with other countries’ because the U.S. tries to educate many more students.
  • Myth 7: Education does not really affect the economy anyway. A Nation at Risk warned that America’s economy would suffer, but that never happened.

common core development
Common Core Development
  • Initially 48 states and three territories signed on
  • As of now, 44 states have officially adopted
  • Final Standards released June 2, 2010, at
  • Adoption required for Race to the Top funds
what are the common core state standards
What are the Common Core State Standards?
  • State led – coordinated by NGA Center and CCSSO
  • Aligned with college and work expectations
  • Focused and coherent
  • Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills
  • Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards
  • Internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society
  • Based on evidence and research
why is this important
Why is this important?
  • Currently, every state has its own set of academic standards, meaning public education students in each state are learning to different levels
  • All students must be prepared to compete with not only their American peers in the next state, but with students from around the world

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009: Saving and Creating Jobs and Reforming Education
  • Four principles guide the distribution and use of ARRA funds:
    • Spend funds quickly to save and create jobs.
    • Improve student achievement through school improvement and reform.
    • Ensure transparency, reporting and accountability.
    • Invest one-time ARRA funds thoughtfully to minimize the "funding cliff."

  • to improve education quality and results statewide.
  • will help states drive substantial gains in student achievement by supporting states making dramatic progress on the four reform goals and effectively using other ARRA funds.
benefits for states and districts
Benefits for States and Districts
  • Allows collaborative professional development based on best practices
  • Allows development of common assessments and other tools
  • Enables comparison of policies and achievement across states and districts
  • Creates potential for collaborative groups to get more economical mileage for:
    • Curriculum development, assessment, and professional development
common core mission statement
Common Core Mission Statement
  • The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.
standards development process
Standards Development Process

College and career readiness standards developed in summer 2009

Based on the college and career readiness standards, K-12 learning progressions developed

Multiple rounds of feedback from states, teachers, researchers, higher education, and the general public

Final Common Core State Standards released on June 2, 2010

ccssm 8 mathematical practices
CCSSM 8 Mathematical Practices

The Common Core proposes a set of Mathematical Practices that all teachers should develop in their students. These practices are similar to NCTM’s Mathematical Processes from the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.

Standards for Mathematical Practice
  • Carry across all grade levels
  • Describe habits of mind of a mathematically expert student
    • 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

Curriculum Correlation CCSSM v. NGSSS
  • Define characteristics of the Common Core State Standards
  • Begin to understand the nature of the shifts needed to implement the Common Core State Standards
  • Launch your work in analyzing these standards
Clusters are groups of related standards.Standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject.

Standardsdefine what students should be able to understand and be able to do- part of a cluster

Domainsare large groups of related standards. Standards from different domains may sometimes be closely related. Look for the name with the code number on it for a Domain.

Content standards require both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency.

Mathematical Practices

Foster reasoning and sense-making in mathematics.

College and Career Readiness

Level is ambitious but achievable.


The Promise of Standards:

  • These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep.
