Common Core Standards

What Do Teachers Have to Say?
*Poor Implementation by administration
*Appreciates that the curriculum is not as strict as NCLB
*Allows more creativity with her lesson plans
*Feels she was unprepared which left her at a disadvantage, therefore putting her students at a disadvantage.

Alaska, Minnesota, Nebraska, Texas, and Virginia have not adopted the Common Core Standards.

Additionally, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the American Samoa Islands have adopted the standards


“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.”

Common Core Standards
Mission Statement
A set of standards that identify the skills and content that a student should master at each grade level from K-12
•Will enhance teacher collaboration and professional development

•Cross curricular learning

•Allow students to better understand what is expected of them

•Will allow teachers to monitor students’ progress throughout the year
What Are the Common Core Standards?
What's the Community's Response?
Bench-marked Standards

Increase rigor in the classroom

Develop Critical Thinkers

Benefit students with high mobility. i.e. military families

Creative lesson plans
Disadvantages
The CCS currently only have skills associated with English Language Arts and Math.
The CCS will not have equivalency test for students with special needs.
Dumber?
The CCS will cost schools more money to update the technology needed for the Common Core Standards Assessments.


The CCS could be watered down compared to a few states who
have previously adopted more difficult standards.

Thank you!

Students will develop
a foundation of mathematical skills and learning from K-12, giving them the building blocks to understand why and how math works in the real-world. Students will still memorize math facts, but they will also be asked to show their understanding by explaining in writing how they solved math problems.
Students will read more complex nonfiction and fiction texts. They will learn to create written arguments using evidence from multiple texts and to gather evidence to defend their opinions. In middle and high school, students will apply their literacy skills to mathematics, science, social studies and technical subjects- learning to read and write well in all subjects.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a new set of tests being developed to measure the critical content and skills of the CCS. The PARCC assessments will test writing skills in each grade, as well as critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students will take the new assessments on computers, allowing teachers to see test results quickly and adjust classroom instruction to the needs of their students.

Myth or Fact?
The Common Core State standards were developed by leaders from the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Offices. The new Standards are designed to ensure a true understanding. The materials go deeper into fewer topics, so kids master the material instead of memorizing it. At the same time, the learning is more hands-on with a focus on real world application


EPE Survey given to 600 participants

The participants were generally knowledgeable of the common core standards with approximately 80% in math and 92% in reading.

93% of those participants who answered the questioned said the standards are "about the same" or higher(Findings from a National Survey of Teachers Perspectives on the Common Core). Only 7% of the students will not be affected by the standards change.

The Standards are just vague descriptions of skills that do not include a reading list or any other similar reference to content
