  • In a broad sense, this is what Common Core is about. Common Core teaches students how to learn. Common Core helps students to be able to think, to create.
  • CA adopted the revised CCSS on Aug. 2, 2010.Minnesota adopted ELA but not math.
  • Discuss “backwards mapping” using the testing timeline to inform the plan.Smarter Balanced testing by grade levels is based on most up to date information. SBAC had a RTTT grant to develop assessments at the grade levels shown. California will determine what tests will be required throughout our state. The SBAC assessments shown on the slide represent the minimum grade levels and subject areas that would be assessed.
  • This explains why we’re increasing an emphasis on reading quantities of higher-complexity text. May be too geek-y for this audience.
  • Content Standards such as CCSS-M 7, CCSS-M 8, Algebra I, geometry, etc.
  • Content Standards, in contrast to Standards for Mathematical Practice, are those such as CCSS-M 7, CCSS-M 8, Algebra I, geometry, etc.
  • Use THIS slide if you choose
  • This summer alone, some 2700 teachers had training in the Common Core. We need ALL of our teachers, whether they teach kindergarten, middle school PE, or high school English, to be a part of our effort. Of course, some disciplines are more directly impacted by CCSS than others. Between January and today, 2100 of our teachers have had 1.5 to 2.5 days of district-led professional learning on Common Core, and a large percentage of these teachers have taken additional time working in teams at their schools deepening their preparation beyond that.
  • VAPA; World Lang; Health; PE; Business; Misc-Every Dept has a role in the CCSS- As of preservice earlier this month, EVERY teacher in EGUSD has had training in CCSS.

  • Common Core State Standards Presented to ___ Anne Zeman, Ed.D. August 2013
  • Our Students’ Future “… because knowledge is available on every Internetconnected device, what you know matters far less than what you can do with what you know.…”
  • Our Students’ Future “…The capacity to innovate — the ability to solve problems creatively or bring new possibilities to life — & skills like critical thinking, communication and collaboration are far more important than academic knowledge…”
  • Our Students’ Future “…As one executive told me, „We can teach new hires the content, and we will have to because it continues to change, but we can’t teach them how to think — to ask the right questions — and to take initiative.’ ” Tony Wagner, Education Specialist, Harvard Author of Creating Innovators: The Making of Young People Who Will Change the World Source: http://www.nytimes.com/
  • Rationale for the Common Core Council of the Great City Schools
  • Background and Rationale of the Common Core State Standards • Were developed by states as a collaborative initiative. • Are informed by other top performing countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society. 6
  • Background and Rationale of the Common Core State Standards • Are aligned with college and career expectations; • Are clear, understandable and consistent; • Include rigorous application of knowledge through high-order skills. 7
  • 46 States Have Adopted the E/LA CCSS
  • California’s Common Core State Standards • CCSS were adopted by the California Board of Education on August 2, 2010. • The implementation of the Common Core is a multi-year effort due to the complexity, breadth, and totality of effort involved. “Dimmer Switch”
  • CCSS Transition Timeline: 2014-15 • Testing begins in 2014-15 • Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium: Testing for grades 3-8, and 11 • CA to determine additional interim assessments
  • EGUSD CCSS Transition Timeline: 2012-13 2013-14 Elementary transitions to CCSS •K-2 in Math •3-6 in ELA Elementary transitions to CCSS •K-2 in ELA •3-6 in Math 7-12 optional transition to CCSS 7-12 implements CCSS: •ELA •Math •Literacy Standards: •Science •History/Social Science •Technical Subjects 11
  • Common Core Causes SHIFTS in Education What are the SHIFTS in how we teach?
  • Shifts Brought by the CCSS • Emphasis on text-dependent questions and performance tasks • Connect writing to reading with frequent opportunities to research information • Provide literacy instruction in all content areas 13
  • Shifts Brought by the CCSS • Increase reading of informational texts • Increased text complexity of reading texts as measured by lexile level • Focus on academic vocabulary within context of texts 14

  • Common Core Causes SHIFTS in Mathematics There are two sets of Common Core standards for Mathematics: ≥√≤×≠ •Content Standards •Eight Standards for Mathematical Practice + n x
  • Common Core Causes SHIFTS in Mathematics Eight Mathematical Practices 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 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.
  • What Is EGUSD Doing to Transition to CCSS??
