10 The Common Core State Standards represent six key instructional shifts MATH: 1.Focus strongly where the Standards focus 2.Coherence: think across grades, and link to major topics within grades 3.Rigor: require conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with intensity. ELA: 1.Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts 2.Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text 3.Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary

Then the plate was empty How many children ate 2 cookies? Use multiplication equations and other operations, if needed, to show how you found your answer. Jane thinks this question can be solved by dividing 28 by 2. She is wrong. Explain using equations and operations why this is not possible. 3 rd Grade Math 3OA.3 (Operations and Algebraic thinking): Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problems.

26 Progression of Informational/ Explanatory Writing StandardGrade: 2Grade: 3Grade: 4 Writing Standard 2 Students write informative/explanatory text in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section. Students write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic and group related information together; develop the topic, transition in a way that makes sense to readers, and provide a concluding statement or section.. Students write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic clearly; organize information into paragraphs; develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, or quotations; transition in a way that makes sense to readers; use precise word choice; and provide a concluding statement or section.
27 This opinion piece about a work of literature was produced in class. Annotation The writer of this piece tells the reader the name of the book (in the title of the paper). o My fabit (favorite) Book is do you Want to be my FRIEND states an opinion or preference about the book. o... my fait (favorite) pot (part) is the hos (horse)
29 Teacher Sample Think Aloud I want students to be able to recognize a point of view, think about how the story is impacted by point of view, and be able to compare and contrast stories based on point of view. In 4th grade, students really enjoy the story Charlottes Web by E.B. White. This story is told in third person. I wonder how it would be different if it was written in first person. It would be interesting to have students compare and contrast how the story would change if Wilbur told the story instead of Fern. I think I will have students choose a section to write from the perspective of a character, to contrast with the original work, which is written in third person.
30 Sample PBA After reading Charlottes Web by E.B. White and identifying that the story is told in third person, choose one section of the book that you would like to rewrite in first person. You may choose any character of the book to be the narrator. Be sure to show how the story is different depending on who is telling the story.

32 We believe there are three legs to the stool in our implementation plan Assessment alignment and transparency Instructional materials and curriculum Quality training & meaningful support Effective communication about the standards, importance, and potential Alignment of accountability structure for LEAs, schools, teachers, and vendors Student achievement
33 Curriculum and Instruction Division priorities for Common Core implementation Assessment alignment, and transparency Instructional materials and curriculum Quality training & meaningful support Effective communication about the standards, importance, and potential Alignment of accountability structure for LEAs, schools, teachers, and vendors We will place significant focus on involvement of school and district leaders throughout Common Core implementation. Without committed leadership, especially at the building level, we believe our preparation will be significantly compromised.

45 K-2 focus areas We want to support districts implementing Common Core State standards in K-2 and encourage all districts to move towards full implementation in the 2012-2013 school year. We will: Support K-2 assessments in math and reading across all districts (more information to come after a review of pilots underway for teacher evaluation) Release TNCore Focus Standards for reading and math for each grade and provide online courses for educators to support instruction on the focus standards Conduct a survey of districts to better understand current implementation through First to the Top partnership meetings. Convene focus groups of districts with promising practices and share best practices with districts. Encourage districts to focus on direct instruction* in reading, especially for students at risk of reaching third grade behind grade level * The TDOE is not endorsing a specific curriculum but the approach of explicit instruction grounded in the science of reading
46 Literacy in 6-12 History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects pilots We believe the implementation of Common Core State Standards is a full- school endeavor, not just a project of math and ELA teachers. To support the integration of all standards and, in particular, the literacy standards, this year we will: Select and convene Core Coaches in social studies, science, CTE, fine arts, and physical education to embed literacy (and, where appropriate, math) standards into instruction. We will select a group of Core Coaches focused in middle school and a group of Core Coaches for high school. Explore writing assessments based on informational texts in the relevant content area
48 Communications from the TDOE Throughout implementation, we will place a premium on consistent and high- quality communications with districts. The TNCore website (www.tncore.org) will launch April 15 th and serve as the site for all state materials on implementationwww.tncore.org Questions can be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org Districts will appoint a team of 2-5 people to serve as the Common Core leadership team. All appointed members will receive monthly TNCore email updates beginning in March. We will not lose sight of the importance and power of strong student and parent communications and we will provide resources to support this across implementation Expect More, Achieve More website will be updated with information about Common Core implementation
