Misconceptions: Cleared Up
The Common Core
State Standards

In 2009, Colorado revised the academic standards in 10 content areas
In 2010, Colorado adopted the CCSS
In response to Colorado legislative requirements, and in addition to adoption of the CCSS, the CCSS are
in the CAS
The CAS:
Colorado's District Sample Curriculum Project
Contact Information
Sample Unit Overviews

1. The CCSS are
in the Colorado Academic Standards in Reading, Writing, Communicating and Math ONLY
2. The CAS includes CCSS plus personal financial literacy, 21st century skills, the addition of a 4th standard to RWC (Research & Reasoning), as well as other legislative requirements
3. Social Studies and Science ARE NOT Common Core subject areas
RWC - Students can:
a. Use Key Ideas and Details to:
i.Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. (CCSS: RL.7.1)
Math - Students can:
a.Define irrational numbers.
b.Demonstrate informally that every number has a decimal expansion. (CCSS: 8.NS.1)
i.For rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually. (CCSS: 8.NS.1)
This fall, over 500 Colorado educators, representing 61 school districts, participated in curriculum design workshops that resulted in the creation of 670 curriculum samples based on the CAS.
From its beginnings, the field of educators across the state has been the force behind this project.
The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) defines curriculum as an organized plan of instruction for engaging students in mastering the standards.
The samples:
Represent the translation of the CAS into unit overviews for all (10) content areas
Illuminate possibilities for sequencing grade-level expectations (GLEs) and content-specific standards across courses/years
Offer one possible foundation for exploring standards-based unit and lesson-plan development
Develop an instructional-unit template for all subjects and grades
Work with Colorado educators to create unit samples for all subjects and grades based on select unit overviews
Three-four day workshops in late July and early August
Look for the participation application on the Standards and Instructional Support website in late spring
