There are 12 shifts that the Common Core requires of us if we are to be truly aligned with it in terms of curricular materials and classroom instruction. There are 6 shifts in Mathematics and 6 shifts in ELA/Literacy. Malcolm ELA 1-4 Brandy ELA 5-6 Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. Students build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities Students read the central, grade appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are patient, create more time and space and support in the curriculum for close reading. Students engage in rich and rigorous evidence based conversations about text.
Writing emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. Students constantly build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts. Teachers significantly narrow and deepen the scope of how time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They do so in order to focus deeply on only the concepts that are prioritized in the standards. Principals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years.
