1 Common Core State Standards (CCSS) English/Language Artsand MathematicsMississippi Association of School Administrators (MASA) Pre-ConferenceOctober 17, 2010Thank 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.Dr. Lynn HouseDeputy State SuperintendentTrecina GreenDirector of CurriculumMississippi Department of Education

4 What is the CCSS Initiative? An initiative of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)A significant and historic opportunity for states to collectively develop and adopt a core set of academic standards in Mathematics and English/Language Arts4
5 Why is this initiative important? Provides consistency across statesAllows for equal accessPrepares students to compete globallyAllows for more focused professional developmentAllows for the development of a common assessmentProvides the opportunity to compare and evaluate policies that affect student achievement across states5
6 What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? Fewer, clearer, and higherAligned with college and work expectationsRigorous content requiring higher-order thinking and application of knowledgeInternationally benchmarkedEvidence-and/or research-based6
7 Shift from “What’s Taught” to “What Students Need to Be Able to Do” To succeed in 21st century college and careers, students need to be able to:Solve problemsCommunicateAdapt to changeWork in teamsAnalyze and conceptualize7
8 Shift from “What’s Taught” to “What Students Need to Be Able to Do” To succeed in 21st century college and careers, students need to be able to:Reflect on and improve performanceManage oneselfCreate, innovate, and critiqueEngage in learning throughout life
9 Design of Internationally Benchmarked Teaching and Learning Systems Common Core State Standards/curriculum expectationsCurriculum guidance–lean but clear with rigorExemplars of school-based performance tasksFocus on classroom formative assessmentTeacher preparation with strong clinical components9
10 CCSSO/NGA Process Fall 2009 Jan. 2010 Feb. 2010 June 2, 2010 -Released draft of College/Career Readiness Standards to states and publicJan-Released several drafts ofK-12 Standards to statesFeb. 2010-Released draft K-12Standards to the publicJune 2, 2010-Released Final K-12 Standards10
11 Adoption of the CCSSA state will have adopted the standards when the State Board of Education has taken formal action to adopt the CCSS.Alignment of state standards to the Common Core State Standards is not the same as adoption.
12 Additional 15% States are being asked to adopt the CCSS -“Word for Word” in its entirety OR-“Word for Word” in its entirety with up toan additional 15%.The 15% is for states that want to go beyond the Common Core.12
13 Table AssignmentsGrade K and Grade 5Grade 1 and Grade 6Grade 2 and Grade 7Grade 3 and Grade 8Grade 4 and Grade 8
14 Common Core State Standards for Mathematics Key design considerations include the following:Individual grade levels in K-8Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimalsSolid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics
15 CCSS Math Key Terms and Structure Activity (Reference Activity Sheet)Review the structure and key terms of the 2007 MS Mathematics Framework Revised.Locate the key terms of the CCSS for Math.List the key terms on the sheet provided.Compare and contrast the CCSS and MS Math Framework key terms.List similarities and differences.Be prepared to share with the larger group.
17 Mathematics Alignment Examples CCSS Math 3rd gradePage 23, 3.OA, #7Fluently multiply and divide within 100.Page 24, 3.NF, #3aUnderstand two fractions as equivalent.MS Math 4th gradeCompetency 1 Objective iRecall multiplication and division facts.Competency 1 Objective fModel and identify equivalent fractions.
18 Mathematics Alignment Examples Continued CCSS Math 3rd gradePage 25, 3.MD, #7Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.MS Math 4th gradeCompetency 4 Objective cDescribe relationships of rectangular area to multiplication.
19 Mathematics Alignment Examples Continued CCSS Math 4th gradePage 31, 4.MD, #3Apply the area formula for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.MS Math 5th gradeCompetency 4 Objective cUse formula to estimate and calculate the area of a rectangle.
20 Mathematics Alignment Activity Each table is assigned a math topic.Locate and list objectives in the MS Math Framework that address the topic.Locate and list the CCSS that align with the objectives.Use the sheet provided to record information.
22 Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework Overall alignment is not goodMany specifics in the CCSS are addressed in the MS Math Framework but at a lower grade level(s)Several of the MS Math Framework objectives are not mentioned in the Common CoreCCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math Framework22
23 Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical SubjectsKey design considerations include the following:Sections divided by Strands for K-5 and 6-12ReadingWritingSpeaking and ListeningLanguage
24 CCSS ELA Key Terms and Structure Activity (Reference Activity Sheet)Review the structure and key terms of the 2006 MS Language Arts Framework Revised.Locate the key terms of the CCSS for ELA.List the key terms on the sheet provided.Compare and contrast the CCSS and MS ELA Framework key terms.List similarities and differences.Be prepared to share with the larger group.
25 ELA Alignment Examples CCSS ELA 3rd gradePage 14, RI, #1Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, explicitly using the text as the basis for the answers.MS ELA 3rd gradeCompetency 2 Objective b, b1, b6Analyze texts in order to identify, understand, infer, or synthesize information.-answer and generate questions-identify cause and effect as stated in text
26 ELA Alignment Examples Continued CCSS ELA 3rd gradePage 21, W, #5With guidance and support from peers and adults, strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.MS ELA 3rd gradeCompetency 3 Objective aUse an appropriate composing process (e.g., planning, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing/sharing) to compose or edit.

29 Alignment of CCSS English Language Arts (ELA) and MS ELA Overall alignment is goodFew specifics in the Common Core are not addressed in the MS ELA Framework or not addressed at the same grade levelMany of the MS ELA Framework objectives and sub-objectives are not mentioned in the Common CoreRigor is comparable29
31 Common Core High School Mathematics Grade 8 standards may be used as an Algebra I course or to transition students effectively into a full Algebra I course.High school standards require students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world situations.
32 Common Core High School Mathematics Pages 57-83High school standards are listed in conceptual categories-number and quantity-algebra-functions-modeling-geometry-statistics and probability
