Common Core State Standards
Transcript of Common Core State Standards
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
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. Common Core State Standards Why we made the switch Standards do not dictate curriculum or teaching methods
Standards do not need to be taught in the order they appear (ex. Topic A before topic B)
What students can learn depends on what they have learned before More non-fiction
Focus on Evidence
"Staircase" of text complexity
Speaking and listening skills
Literacy in the content areas
More complex text with higher-level vocabulary
Explicit comprehension instruction
Intensive writing WHAT WILL THE COMMON CORE ASSESSMENT LOOK LIKE? HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW... -U.S. does not do well on international measures of assessment
-U.S assessments focus on multiple choice questions while international exams are more writing intensive
-Countries that are doing well in academics have created curriculum that focuses on 21st century skills
-The Common Core has been benchmarked to international standards Standards: define what students should understand and be able to do.
Clusters: summarize groups of related standards. Note that standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject.
Domains: are larger groups of related standards. Standards from different domains may sometimes be closely related. How to Read the Standards Mathematical Practices Focus on knowledge and skills needed to be successful in college and careers
This applies to all students including students in special education and English Language Learners! Shift From No Child Left Behind
“all students proficient by 2014”
College and Career Readiness (CCR) theme
"all students [will] have the opportunity to learn this valued content and show what they know and can do"
Positive change that focuses on twenty first century skills necessary for the workplace
Students will get knowledge and skills needed to succeed in college and careers
Students will understand what is expected of them with clear standards
This can lead to more self directed learning
Parents will understand what is expected and be able to support their children
Educators will tailor curriculum and teaching methods; allows for more focused pre-service and professional development Benefits of the Common Core Standards Students in Special Education Must be held to high standards
Students will continue to receive supports and accommodations according to their IEP
IEP goals should align grade level CCSS
Instructional accommodations can change the materials or procedure, but not the standards
1% of all students, 10% of students with disabilities will have an alternate assessment
Most significant cognitive disabilities http://www.sde.ct.gov/sde/cwp/view.asp?a=2618&q=320848 English Language Learners Currently ELL Standards specify language outcomes and teachers have to swap in content outcomes that relate to their local standards
Creating "connections" between the ELP (English Language Proficiency) Framework and the CCSS for each grade
New assessment big step forward because they will have a clear idea of the standards http://www.illustrativemathematics.org/ http://www.smarterbalanced.org/sample-items-and-performance-tasks/ Let's Check Out Some
Sample Test Items! Fully Operational in 2014-2015
BUILT IN accommodations
Last 12 weeks of the school year in grades 3-8 & 11
Optional second benchmark available
Variety of test items
Performance tasks will be included
Shorter turnaround time for results
Larger bank of test questions to select from
