The Common Core State StandardsHALE KULA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SEPTEMBER 24, 2012 GRADES 4 AND 5 PARENT WORKSHOP
The Common Core State Standards Mission StatementThe 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.

CCR Anchor Standards for Reading Key Ideas and details1. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.2. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.3. Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text. Craft and Structure4. Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone.5. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.6. Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text
• Integration of Knowledge and Ideas7. Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.8. Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.9. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.• Range of reading and Level of Text Complexity10. Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
CCR Anchor Standards for Writing Text types and Purposes1. Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.3. Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well- chosen details, and well-structured event sequences.
Production and distribution of Writing4. Produce clear and coherent writing in which thedevelopment, organization, and style areappropriate to task,purpose, and audience.5. Develop and strengthen writing as needed byplanning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying anew approach.6. Use technology, including the Internet, toproduce and publish writing and to interact andcollaborate with others
Research to Build and Present Knowledge7. Conduct short as well as more sustained research projectsbased on focused questions, demonstrating understanding ofthe subject under investigation.8. Gather relevant information from multiple print and digitalsources, assess the credibility and accuracy of eachsource, and integrate the information while avoidingplagiarism.9. Draw evidence from literary or informational texts tosupport analysis, reflection, and research.Range of Writing10. Write routinely over extended time frames (time forresearch, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (asingle sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes,and audiences.

Mathematical StandardsThere are fewer standards but they are more focused.Standards define what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics.There are 8 standards of mathematical practices. The two we will focus on most are #1 and #3:#1 - Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.#3 - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
