Timeline January, 2013 Key Points
in Math Shifts in the Common Core Reading
The standards establish a “staircase” of increasing complexity in what students must be able to read so that all students are ready for the demands of college- and career-level reading no later than the end of high school.
Through reading a diverse array of classic and contemporary literature as well as challenging informational texts in a range of subjects, students are expected to build knowledge, gain insights, explore possibilities, and broaden their perspective.
The standards mandate certain critical types of content for all students, including classic myths and stories from around the world, foundational U.S. documents, seminal works of American literature, and the writings of Shakespeare.
The ability to write logical arguments based on substantive claims, sound reasoning, and relevant evidence is a cornerstone of the writing standards, with opinion writing—a basic form of argument—extending down into the earliest grades.
Research—both short, focused projects (such as those commonly required in the workplace) and longer term in depth research —is emphasized throughout the standards but most prominently in the writing strand since a written analysis and presentation of findings is so often critical.
Annotated samples of student writing accompany the standards and help establish adequate performance levels in writing arguments, informational/explanatory texts, and narratives in the various grades. Writing
The standards require that students gain, evaluate, and present increasingly complex information, ideas, and evidence through listening and speaking as well as through media.
An important focus of the speaking and listening standards is academic discussion in one-on-one, small-group, and whole-class settings. Formal presentations are one important way such talk occurs, but so is the more informal discussion that takes place as students collaborate to answer questions, build understanding, and solve problems. Speaking
& Listening Reading
The standards expect that students will grow their vocabularies through a mix of conversations, direct instruction, and reading. The standards will help students determine word meanings, appreciate the nuances of words, and steadily expand their repertoire of words and phrases.
The standards help prepare students for real life experience at college and in 21st century careers. The standards recognize that students must be able to use formal English in their writing and speaking but that they must also be able to make informed, skillful choices among the many ways to express themselves through language.
Vocabulary and conventions are treated in their own strand not because skills in these areas should be handled in isolation but because their use extends across reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Language
Just as media and technology are integrated in school and life in the twenty-first century, skills related to media use (both critical analysis and production of media) are integrated throughout the standards. Media
& Technology The standards stress not only procedural skill but also conceptual understanding, to make sure students are learning and absorbing the critical information they need to succeed at higher levels. The high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges; they prepare students to think and reason mathematically.
The high school standards set a rigorous definition of college and career readiness, by helping students develop a depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics to novel situations.
The high school standards emphasize mathematical modeling, the use of mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, understand them better, and improve decisions. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literature
Reading and writing grounded in evidence from the text
Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary Shifts in ELA
Focus: Focus on fewer topics targeting depth of knowledge and skills
Coherence: Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the grade
Rigor: Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts Shifts in Math ACHS

Model Framework The following ELA Model Content Framework Chart for Grade 9 organizes the standards into four quarter-length modules that include the knowledge and skills students will learn and apply over the course of the year.
The chart is meant to illustrate and provide context for the standards (but not replace engaging with the standards themselves). Framework Models are examples
of how to organize the
standards and their
components for implementation in each grade level. PARCC

Standards The research of Marzano, Wiggins and others provides insight into the process for analyzing, understanding, and implementing the Common Core State Standards. This process begins with "Unpacking the Standards". So as we look to aligning our curriculum with the CCSS, we are provided several resources to use as models...
