1 We Are Here!

2 What are Standards?

3 Consider an analogy with homebuilding and renovation: The standards are like the building code. Architects and builders must attend to them but they are not the purpose of their design… The house to be built or renovated is designed to meet the needs of the client in a functional and pleasing manner-while also meeting the building code along the way. -Wiggins & McTighe

7 So, where are you? What best describes your knowledge of the Common Core State Standards? Aware (I know theyre out there.) Informed (Ive read up, attended PD, explored on- line, etc.) Ready (I am planning instruction based on them.) Expert (I could help others understand and implement.)

8 So, where are you? What best describes your feelings about the Common Core State Standards? Anxious Comfortable Eager This, too, shall pass.

9 One of two ways to think about it…

12 Aligned with college and work expectations Focused and coherent Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills

13 Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards Internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society Based on evidence and research State led – coordinated by NGA Center and CCSSO

14 College and career readiness standards developed in summer 2009 Based on these college and career readiness standards, K-12 learning progressions were developed

15 Multiple rounds of feedback from states, teachers, researchers, higher education, and the general public Final Common Core State Standards released on June 2, 2010

16 What the Standards do NOT define: How teachers should teach All that can or should be taught The nature of advanced work beyond the core The interventions needed for students well below grade level The full range of support for English language learners and students with special needs Everything needed to be college and career ready

17 Eligible Content rewritten to embrace Common Core Standards PA Academic Standards revised to reflect the content and rigor of Common Core PSSA aligned to revised Eligible Content

18 Currently Revised PA Common Core Standards in Reading and Math can be found on SAS As We Speak Begin development of Common Core aligned PSSA Reading and Math tests

19 Currently Develop PA Common Core train the trainer modules for IU delivery to LEAs Now-May 2012 Offer CC training sessions to LEAs Ongoing Align SAS resources to PA Common Core Standards Spring 2014 Implement Common Core aligned PSSA tests, grades 3-5 Spring 2015 Implement Common Core aligned PSSA tests, grades 6-8

21 Standards for Mathematical Practice Carry across all grade levels Describe habits of mind of a mathematically expert student Standards for Mathematical Content K-8 standards presented by grade level Organized into domains that progress over several grades Grade introductions give 2–4 focal points at each grade level High school standards presented by conceptual theme (Number & Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, Statistics & Probability)

22 Whats New? Overview of Mathematics Standards Standards for Mathematical Practice Standards for Mathematical Content K-8 grade level standards Algebraic thinking standards indicated in K-5 Grade level overviews: K-8 Mathematical Standards for High School Conceptual categories Additional standards for preparation for advanced courses

23 Strands of Mathematics Standards Grades K-5 Numbers and Operations Operations and Algebraic Thinking Measurement and Data Geometry Grades 6-8 Number System Ratios and Proportional Relationships (gr. 8-functions) Expressions and Equations Geometry Statistics and Probability

24 Strands of Mathematics Standards High School Numbers and Quantity Algebra Functions Modeling Geometry Statistics and Probability

26 Three Sections K-5 (cross-disciplinary) 6-12 English Language Arts 6-12 Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science & Technical Subjects Three Appendices A: Research and evidence; glossary B: Reading text exemplars; sample performance tasks C: Annotated student writing samples

27 Notes for Elementary and Notes for Secondary 1.In groups of four, each take a section and identify a GOLDEN PHRASE or WORD that exemplifies the intent of the section. 2.Share with group and discuss why the choice was made. 3.Arrive at consensus for three key words in entire text. 4.What are the implications for instruction?

28 Dr. Doug Reeves says there are mistakes to avoid… 1.Analysis Paralysis – Dont wait for Washington or for the official answer to every potential question 2.Abandon current standards-based teaching and assessment techniques – Dont revert to a norm-based system 3.Try to do it all – it was too much 15 years ago and its too much now. 4.Check it off and move on

29 Reflect on your experiences when standards were adopted in PA. What are your own lessons learned for teachers, administrators, and policy makers? What do you know now about standards implementation that you wish you would have known then?

30 What Schools Must Do: 1.Find common ground-identify what does NOT change. Highlight the areas of the PA Common Core that you already teach AND assess. 2.Focus your energy – use the Essential standards approach (leverage, endurance, essential for next grade.) 3.Embrace common formative assessments now.
