  • Thank you for participating in this important conference and for playing such critical roles in raising the bar on student achievement in your communities and states. The following presentation is an overview of the of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act K-12 grants at the U.S. Department of Education in the context of our overall vision for strengthening our school systems throughout the nation.
  • Transcript of "Common Core State Standards"

    1. 1. Mississippi Department of Education Common Core State Standards and Assessments Mathematics and English/Language Arts Lynn J. House, Ph.D. Deputy State Superintendent
    2. 2. What is the CCSS Initiative? <ul><li>An initiative of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) </li></ul><ul><li>A significant and historic opportunity for states to collectively develop and adopt a core set of academic standards in Mathematics and English/Language Arts </li></ul>
    3. 3. Why is this initiative important? <ul><li>Provides consistency across states </li></ul><ul><li>Allows for equal access </li></ul><ul><li>Prepares students to compete globally </li></ul><ul><li>Allows for more focused professional development </li></ul><ul><li>Allows for the development of a common assessment </li></ul><ul><li>Provides the opportunity to compare and evaluate policies that affect student achievement across states </li></ul>
    4. 4. What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? <ul><li>Fewer, clearer, and higher </li></ul><ul><li>Aligned with college and work expectations </li></ul><ul><li>Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking and application of knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Internationally benchmarked </li></ul><ul><li>Evidence-and/or research-based </li></ul>
    5. 5. Shift from “What’s Taught” to “ What Students Need to Be Able to Do” <ul><li>To succeed in 21 st century college and careers, students need to be able to: </li></ul>1. Solve problems 2. Manage oneself 3. Adapt to change 4. Analyze / conceptualize 5. Reflect on / improve performance 6. Communicate 7. Work in teams 8. Create / innovate / critique 9. Engage in learning throughout life
    6. 6. Instructional Delivery System <ul><li>At a minimum, to successfully implement Common Core State Standards and Assessments, TEACHERS must: </li></ul><ul><li>Know how to plan intentionally for rigorous and deep learning experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Know how to design and utilize formative assessment that ensures retention and the ability to apply learning . </li></ul><ul><li>Be able to create a learning environment that fosters deep thinking , engagement of students , integration of subject areas, and problem-based learning experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Must be able to analyze and use a variety of data to drive instructional practice. </li></ul><ul><li>Must embrace continuous professional learning. </li></ul>
    7. 7. CCSSO/NGA Process Fall 2009 -Released draft of College/Career Readiness Standards to states and public January 2010 -Released several drafts of K-12 Standards to states February 2010 -Released draft K-12 Standards to the public June 2, 2010 -Released Final K-12 Standards June 2010 -Adopted by MS State Board of Education
    8. 8. Common Core State Standards for Mathematics <ul><li>Key design considerations: </li></ul><ul><li>Individual grade levels in K-8 </li></ul><ul><li>Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals </li></ul><ul><li>Solid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics </li></ul><ul><li>Conceptual categories such as algebra, functions and modeling in grades 9 - 12 </li></ul>
    9. 9. Mathematics Alignment Examples <ul><li>CCSS Math 3 rd grade </li></ul><ul><li>Fluently multiply and divide within 100. </li></ul><ul><li>Understand two fractions as equivalent . </li></ul><ul><li>MS Math 4 th grade </li></ul><ul><li>Recall multiplication and division facts. </li></ul><ul><li>Model and identify equivalent fractions . </li></ul>
    10. 10. Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework <ul><li>Initial alignment study done “in-house” and additional study done by SEDL </li></ul><ul><li>Overall alignment is not good </li></ul><ul><li>-Many specifics in the CCSS are addressed in the MS Math Framework but at a lower </li></ul><ul><li>grade level(s) </li></ul><ul><li>-Several of the MS Math Framework </li></ul><ul><li>objectives are not mentioned in the </li></ul><ul><li>Common Core </li></ul><ul><li>CCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math Framework </li></ul>
    11. 11.
