1 CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards California PTA February 26, 2013 Nancy Brownell, Senior Fellow Jessica Valdez, Administrator California Department of Education

2 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction California and the Common Core State Standards The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts, to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce.

3 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction The Common Core State Standards Benefits: Are aligned with college and work expectations; Are clear, understandable and consistent; Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills; Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards;

4 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction The Common Core State Standards Benefits: Internationally benchmarked Evidence and research-based Consistent expectations – no matter where you live Opportunity for shared resources and reduced costs

7 Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects The CCSS for English-Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects are organized around the College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards for Reading, Writing, and Speaking and Listening. Each strand is headed by a set of CCR Anchor Standards that is identical across all grades and content areas. The anchor standards lend coherence to the document both across the content areas and across the grades.

8 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Balanced Representation of Literary and Informational Text Kindergarten through grade 5 10 Reading standards for literature 10 Reading standards for informational text Writing standards that explicitly call for opinion pieces, narratives, and informative/explanatory texts Grades 6–12 10 Reading standards for literature 10 Reading standards for informational text Writing standards that explicitly call for arguments, narratives, and informative/explanatory texts An additional set of standards for reading and writing in history/social studies, science and technical subjects

9 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Informational Text Includes the subgenres of exposition, argument, and functional text in the form of personal essays, speeches, opinion pieces, essays about art or literature, biographies, memoirs, journalism, and historical, scientific, technical, or economic accounts (including digital sources) written for a broad audience Source: page 33 of the CCSS for ELA and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects

10 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects: Grades 6–12 Set the expectation that students will read and write in non-ELA classrooms and develop informational/technical writing skills Provide an acknowledgement of unique text structures found in informational text Maintain the focus on discipline-specific vocabulary, critical analysis, and evidence across the curriculum

11 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Technical Subjects Technical subjects – A course devoted to a practical study, such as engineering, technology, design, business, or other workforce-related subject; a technical aspect of a wider field of study, such as art or music Source: Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects: Appendix A

12 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Critical Analysis/Use of Evidence Describe how reasons support specific points the author makes in a text. (2.RI.8) Delineate a speakers argument and specific claims, evaluating the soundness of the reasoning and relevance and sufficiency of the evidence and identifying when irrelevant evidence is introduced. (8.SL.3) Develop claim(s) and counterclaims fairly and thoroughly, supplying the most relevant data and evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both claim(s) and counterclaims in a discipline-appropriate form that anticipates the audiences knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases. (11-12.WHST.1.b)

13 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Focus on Text Complexity By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poetry, at the high end of the grades 4–5 text complexity band independently and proficiently. (5.RL.10) Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 11–12 topics, texts, and issues, building on others ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. (11-12.SL.1)

14 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Increased Student Collaboration With guidance and support from adults, use technology to produce and publish writing (using keyboarding skills) as well as to interact and collaborate with others. (3.W.6) Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 9-10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. (9-10.SL.1)

15 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Vocabulary Acquisition and Use Use words and phrases acquired through conversations, reading and being read to, and responding to texts. (K.L.6) Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic. (7.W.2.d) Determine the meaning of word and phrase as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone). (9-10.RL.4)

16 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Increased Use of Multimedia and Technology Add audio recordings and visual displays to presentations when appropriate to enhance the development of main ideas and themes. (4.SL.5) Compare and contrast a written story, drama, or poem to its audio, filmed, staged, or multimedia version, analyzing the effects of techniques unique to each medium (e.g., lighting, sound, color, or camera focus and angles in a film). (7.RL.7) Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., quantitative data, video, multimedia) in order to address a question or solve a problem. (11-12.RST.7)

17 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Transitioning to the CCSS Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational Regular practice with complex text and its academic language Source: http://www.achievethecore.org/steal-these-tools

18 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Mathematical Proficiency as defined by the California Framework (2006) Conceptual Understanding DOING MATH Problem Solving Procedural Skills

19 TOM TORLAKSON State Superintendent of Public Instruction Common Core Standards for Mathematics The standards for mathematics: Are focused, coherent, and rigorous Aim for clarity and specificity Stress conceptual understanding of key ideas Balance mathematical understanding and procedural skill Are internationally benchmarked
