Common Core State Standards: Why? • 63% of jobs nationwide will require some postsecondary education by 2018 • 64% of Oregon jobs will require postsecondary education; of those: • 54% vocational training, certification, or associate degree • 46% bachelor or graduate degree Source: Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, June 2010
Common Core State Standards: Why? • Prepares students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and work • Ensures consistent expectations regardless of a student’s zip code • Provides educators, parents, and students with clear, focused guideposts
Common Core State Standards: Where? • A joint effort by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers • States were in the driver’s seat. • The federal government did not develop the standards or require adoption. • Continual input throughout out the process.
Common Core State Standards: What? College and Career Ready Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics ELA includes literacy standards for social science, technical subjects, and science 48 States
Features of the Standards • 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 • Based on evidence and research • Internationally benchmarked
Features of the Standards • The College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchorstandards were written first and describe expectations for the end of high school. • The CCSS were then back-mapped down to kindergarten to ensure that students would be on track early to meet rigorous end of high school literary goals.
The standards define: • what is most essential • gradelevel expectations • what students are expected to know and be able to do • cross-disciplinary literacy skills
English Language Arts CCSS Video FAQ Goals of the CCSS ELA
English Language Arts – Instructional Shift Traditional Classroom Focus on literature (fiction) Literary skills (identifying terms and devices like theme) ELA taught in isolation Common Core Classroom Informational texts prepare for college and career Cross-content literacy ELA taught in collaboration
ELA Design & Organization • K-5 (cross disciplinary) • 6-12 English Language Arts • 6-12 Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, & Technical Subjects Shared responsibility for students’ literacy development Appendices A. Research & evidence; glossary of terms B. Reading text exemplars; sample performance tasks C. Annotated student writing samples
Reading-Literature • Choose one grade level and examine standards 1-10. • Mark with these codes to show your understanding +Good to go! -Not so sure * OMG! If you complete this task, identify the level of Blooms, identify key vocabulary & engagement strategies
Mathematics CCSS Video FAQ CCSS Math Classroom
Mathematics – Key Ideas • Balanced combination of procedural skill and understanding • Requires students to “explain” and “justify” rather than “define” and “identify” • Standards for Mathematical Practice • Content focus at each grade allows in-depth study • Standards for Mathematical Content • K-8 standards by grade level • High school standards by conceptual theme
Eight CCSS Mathematical Practices • 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.
Eight CCSS Mathematical Practices 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
