Transcript of Common Core State Standards

Common Core State Standards www.corestandards.org Beginning in the spring of 2009, Governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state K-12 English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics standards. 5 Reasons Why Preparation: The standards are college- and career-ready. They will help prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in education and training after high school. Competition: The standards are internationally benchmarked. Common standards will help ensure our students are globally competitive. Equity: Expectations are consistent for all – and not dependent on a student’s zip code. Clarity: The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Clearer standards help students (and parents and teachers) understand what is expected of them. Collaboration: The standards create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise, to create curricular tools, professional development, common assessments and other materials. Final Standards released June 2, 2010 Building on the strength of current state standards, the CCSS are designed to be:

Focused, coherent, clear and rigorous
Internationally benchmarked
Anchored in college and career readiness*
Evidence and research based Who created them? K-12 teachers Postsecondary faculty State curriculum and assessments experts Researchers National organizations from... Standards of high performing coutries and states as well as national frameworks Research on adolescent literacy, text complexity, mathematics instruction and quantitative literacy Mathematics Standards K-8 grade by grade 9-12 by conceptual categories include both... Habits of Mind and... Standards for mathematical proficiency: reasoning, problem solving, modeling, decision making, and engagement High school standards are organized around five conceptual categories: Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability K-8 Organization Domains: overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades
Clusters: illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade
Standards: define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level 9-12 Organization Content categories: overarching ideas that describe strands of content in high school
Domains/Clusters: groups of standards that describe coherent aspects of the content category

Language At the base are College and Career Readiness standards, called Anchor standards Reading Emphasize the importance of grade-level texts that are of appropriate difficulty and are increasingly sophisticated
Standards for Reading Foundational Skills (K-5)
Reading Standards for Literature (K-12)
Reading Standards for Informational Text (K-12) Include exemplar texts that increase in complexity as a student progresses Writing Divided into three types:
Narrative Research and use of technology are very important
Includes writing samples that illustrate criteria Speaking and Listening Focus on speaking and listening in a range of settings, both formal and informal – academic, small-group, whole-class discussions
Emphasize effective communication practices
Require interpretation and analysis of message as presented through oral, visual, or multimodal formats Language Include conventions for writing and speaking
Highlight the importance of vocabulary acquisition through a mix of conversation, direct instruction, and reading
To be addressed in context of reading, writing, speaking and listening Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Reading Knowledge of domain-specific vocabulary
Analyze, evaluate, and differentiate primary and secondary sources
Synthesize quantitative and technical information, including facts presented in maps, timelines, flowcharts, or diagrams Writing Write arguments on discipline-specific content and informative/explanatory texts
Use of data, evidence, and reason to support arguments and claims
Use of domain-specific vocabulary Standards are embedded K-5 Content-specific literacy standards are provided for grades 6-8, 9-10, and 11-12 Want more Info???
