Common Core Curriculum State Plan Louisiana’s Implementation Timeline
State Implementation Overview New assessments and new Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum (LCC) for ELA and mathematics will be phased in over several years No changes - current curriculum, current assessments Curriculum - some GLEs deleted, some GLEs remain, some CCSS added Assessments – based on GLEs that remain in curriculum Curriculum and assessments based on CCSS only
Diocesan Overview Implications for Catholic Schools as the states begin to implement the CCSS • Achievement tests will change to be aligned. • Textbooks will changed to assure that CCSS are included. • Scholarship students will take the state’s assessments. • Our curriculum needs to be aligned with the standards to assure that our students are prepared for their next level of education. 2012 - 2013 Diocese planning for implementation, begin training and curriculum alignment
State Curriculum Implementation Plan 2011-12 School Year • Social Studies and Science • Create • newLouisiana Comprehensive Curriculum (LCC) to align new social studies standards • Review • Next Generation Science Standards (Spring 2012) to determine their appropriateness to replace current Louisiana science standards ELA and Math • Create • newLouisiana Comprehensive Curriculum (LCC) to align with CCSS for grades K-1 • transitional LCC for grades 2 and higher • Delete activities based on GLEs that have no match with CCSS • Add activities to address new content required by CCSS
State Curriculum Implementation Plan 2012-13: Transition Year #1 Social Studies and Science • Implement • new LCC* in Civics and US History courses (required) • new LCC* in World Geography and World History (recommended) • Create • new LCC in grades K-12 science • *or locally-developed curriculum ELA and Math • Implement • newLCC in grades K -1 aligned to ELA and math CCSS • transitional LCC in grades 2 and higher in ELA and math • Create • new LCC for grades 2 and higher aligned to ELA and math CCSS • Create new PreK integrated curriculum based on CCSS and new social studies and science standards
State Curriculum Implementation Plan 2013-14: Transition Year #2 Social Studies and Science • Continue to use • new LCC in Civics and US History courses (required) • new LCC in World Geography and World History (recommended) ELA and Math • Implement • new LCC in grade 2 in ELA and math • Continue to use • transitional LCC in grades 3 and higher • Implement new PreK integrated curriculum based on CCSS and new social studies and science standards
State Curriculum Implementation Plan 2014-15: Full CCSS Implementation • Full Implementation at all grades and core content areas • Common Core State Standards in ELA and math • State-revised standards for social studies and science • New LCCfor all grades and subjects
Common Core State Standards Terminology of the CCSS
ELA CCSS Terminology Sample ELA Standards Focus Topics from College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards RL.K.3
ELA CCSS ID Numbers RI . 7 . 2 Grade Strand Standard Number The ELA Common Core State Standards document provides each strand name and its abbreviation. The strand in this example is Reading for Informational Text.
Math CCSS ID Numbers 7.NS.2 Grade Standard Number Domain The math Common Core State Standards document provides each domain name and its abbreviation. The domain in this example is The Number System.
Common Core State Standards Crosswalk Documents
Crosswalk Documents • 2011 State created crosswalk documents between CCSS and current Grade-Level Expectations (GLEs) in ELA and math • Developed grade-level content comparison reports • Identify what content will remain the same, be added, or be deleted • Indicate which CCSS will be phased in prior to full implementation
What is a Content Standards Crosswalk? • An alignment study to analyze the degree of match or overlap between two sets of standards • LDOE contracted with WestEd to create an alignment study between CCSS and Louisiana’s GLEs • ELA and Math • Each grade level • Serves as the official crosswalk for determining transitional curriculum and blueprints for transitional assessments • Not Included: ELA Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Terminology is based on CCSS for each content area • Formats are similar
Criteria for a Match A GLE was considered a match to a CCSS if it met one or more of the following criteria: • GLE reflects the same concepts and skills embodied in the CCSS • Central idea and/or intended complexity of the GLE is consistent with the central idea and/or intended complexity of the CCSS • GLE addresses the intended content of the CCSS at a fundamental level. • Important: A GLE does not need to address all the skills embodied by the CCSS to be considered a match. • West Ed identified the strongest GLE to CCSS match(es) at each grade.

ELA and Math How to Read Crosswalk Document
How to Read Crosswalk Document Crosswalks are in EXCEL Format There are two versions of the crosswalks for each grade, each under a separate tab in the EXCEL file (see graphic). • Version A starts with the CCSS and identifies the GLE or GLEs that best match the content of the CCSS. • Version B starts with the GLE and identifies the CCSS that best matches the GLE. The tabs labeled MathVersA-All and MathVersB-All contain the math alignments for all grades on a single worksheet. In the ELA crosswalk, the tabs are labeled ELAVersA-All and ELAVersB-All.
