**English Learners and the Common Core State Standards**

The toolkit is an introduction and guide to initial implementation. Additional intentional support for English learners is critical. Work grounded in the revised English Language Development (ELD) standards will be necessary. TIME: 3 minutes (for Slide 3) INTENT: To explain that while it is not explicitly addressed in the toolkit, intentional work in support of English learners is required ___________________________________________________________________________________ Address with participants that work beyond the scope of this document will be necessary to ensure that English learners successfully master the Common Core State Standards. The California English Language Development (ELD) Standards are being revised and aligned to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and to reflect current research in English language development instruction. Future work should be grounded in these revised ELD standards. INSTRUCTOR NOTE: This toolkit provides an introduction and guide to initial implementation of the CCSS. It does not explicitly address the instructional needs of English learners. However, experts in the education of English learners were involved in the development of the CCSS for English language arts. These individuals assisted in shaping the standards in general and had a significant impact on the language and vocabulary standards. While this toolkit does address some instructional strategies that may be appropriate for English learners, more work specific to their needs will be necessary.

**Why? To ensure that our students are…**

meeting college and career expectations (Text Complexity needs to be increased K-12); provided a vision of what it means to be an academically literate person in the twenty-first century; prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and provided with rigorous content and applications of higher knowledge through higher order thinking skills. TIME: 12 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 4 to 8) INTENT: To provide a background on why the new standards were written ___________________________________________________________________________________ The standards were written to ensure that our students are: [click] meeting college and career expectations; While reading demands in college, workforce training programs, and life in general have held steady or increased over the last half century, K–12 texts have actually declined in sophistication, and relatively little attention has been paid to students’ ability to read complex texts independently. Furthermore, students in college are expected to read complex texts with substantially greater independence (i.e., much less scaffolding) than students in typical K–12 programs. [click] provided a vision of what it means to be an academically literate person in the twenty-first century; [click] prepared to succeed in our global economy and society; and Students must be prepared for both our domestic economy and, more so than ever before, for our global economy. [click] provided with rigorous content and applications of higher knowledge through higher order thinking skills. This means our students must master ever more rigorous content and be prepared to apply that content to succeed. 2011 © CA County Superintendents Educational Services Association California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**Benefits Internationally benchmarked Evidence and research-based**

Expectations clear to students, parents, teachers, and the general public Consistent expectations for all TIME: 12 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 4 to 8) INTENT: To provide the benefits of the CCSS ___________________________________________________________________________________ The standards were written to ensure that our students are: [click] Internationally benchmarked Competition. The CCSS are internationally benchmarked and will help ensure our students are globally competitive. [click] Evidence and research-based Preparation. The CCSS define the K-12 expectations for college and career readiness. They will help prepare students with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in education and training after high school. If evidence could not be found that a standard is critical to college and careers, it did not make the final cut. Collaboration. The standards create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise, to create curricular tools, professional development, common assessments and other materials. [click] Expectations clear to students, parents, teachers, and the general public Clarity. The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Clearer standards help students (and parents and teachers) understand what is expected of them. [click] Consistent expectations for all Equity. Expectations are consistent for all. 2011 © CA County Superintendents Educational Services Association California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**5th Grade Collaborative Conversations**

Engage effectively in collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing one’s own clearly. Come to discussions prepared, having read or studied required material; explicitly draw on that preparation and other information known about the topic to explore ideas under discussion. Follow agreed-upon rules for discussions and carry out assigned roles. Pose and respond to specific questions by making comments that contribute to the discussion and elaborate on the remarks of others. Review the key ideas expressed and draw conclusions in light of information and knowledge gained from discussions. TIME: 5 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 36 to 37) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Here is a sample Speaking and Listening standard for 5th grade. This is similar to the norms that are set in academic and professional communities. Each aspect of this statement supports the key foundations for effective and productive collaborative discussion. Note the appropriateness of the standard for a wide variety of academic and work environments students will enter into. 2011 © CA County Superintendents Educational Services Association California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**Integrating Media Sources**

Reading Standards for Informational Text, Grade 6 7. Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue. Writing Standards, Grade 6 6. Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single sitting. TIME: 5 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 38 to 39) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Tell participants that research and media skills are blended into the Standards as a whole. Paraphrase the following paragraph from the CCSS Introduction, p. 4: To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new. The need to conduct research and to produce and consume media is embedded into every aspect of today’s curriculum. In like fashion, research and media skills and understandings are embedded throughout the Standards rather than treated in a separate section.1 As demonstrated in these Grade 6 examples, the use of media sources is integrated across the strands. Take a moment to read the example standards. These are only a few examples from Grade 6. It is important to note that there are numerous examples of integration of media sources within each grade level across the strands. 1National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers (2010).

**Standards for Mathematical Practice**

“The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important ‘processes and proficiencies’ with longstanding importance in mathematics education.” National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers (2010) Common Core State Standards for Mathematics TIME: 8 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 40 to 43) INTENT: To introduce participants to the CCSS for Mathematics Standards for Mathematical Practice and understand the two frameworks from which the standards were written ___________________________________________________________________________________ Read the quote. Emphasize that the Standards for Mathematical Practice are the processes and proficiencies that mathematics educators are seeking to develop in their students. The new Standards for Mathematical Practice were based partly on two frameworks: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)—Principles and Standards for School Mathematics National Research Council—Adding It Up: Helping Children Learn Mathematics California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**Underlying Frameworks National Council of Teachers of Mathematics**

Five Process Standards Problem Solving Reasoning and Proof Communication Connections Representations TIME: 8 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 40 to 43) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Explain that the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics1 focus on five process standards. [click] Problem Solving: Problem solving should be an integral part of mathematics, not just an isolated piece of the mathematics program. By solving mathematical problems, students acquire ways of thinking, habits of persistence and curiosity, and confidence in unfamiliar situations that serve them well both inside and outside the classroom. [click] Reasoning and Proof: Mathematical reasoning and proof offer powerful ways of developing and expressing insights about a wide range of phenomena. People who reason and think analytically tend to note patterns, structure, or regularities in both real-world and mathematical situations. [click] Communication: Mathematical communication is a way of sharing ideas and clarifying understanding. When students are challenged to communicate the results of their thinking to others orally or in writing, they learn to be clear, convincing, and precise in their use of mathematical language. [click] Connections: Mathematics is an integrated field of study. When students connect mathematical ideas, their understanding is deeper and more lasting, and they come to view mathematics as a coherent whole. They see mathematical connections in the rich interplay among mathematical topics, in contexts that relate mathematics to other subjects, and in their own interests and experiences. [click] Representations: Mathematical ideas can be represented in a variety of ways: pictures, concrete materials, tables, graphs, number and letter symbols, spreadsheet displays, etc. The ways in which mathematical ideas are represented is fundamental to how people understand and use these ideas. 1 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000).

**Underlying Frameworks Strands of Mathematical Proficiency**

Conceptual Understanding Strategic Competence Productive Disposition Procedural Fluency Adaptive Reasoning TIME: 8 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 40 to 43) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Adding it Up was written by the National Research Council. Five mathematical proficiencies are identified in this document: [click] Adaptive reasoning- capacity for logical thought, explanation, and justification [click] Strategic Competence: ability to formulate, represent, and solve mathematical problems [click] Conceptual Understanding: comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations, and relations [click] Productive Disposition: belief in one’s own efficacy to do mathematics; mathematics is useful [click] Procedural Fluency: skills in carrying out procedures Research shows that each of these strands is equally important. Pose the question, “What does the graphic communicate about the nature of the five strands?” Possible answers: They are all equally important. In order for the rope to be strong, each strand must be strong, etc. National Research Council (2001) Adding It Up California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

21
**Standards for Mathematical Practice**

The Eight Standards for Mathematical Practice place an emphasis on student demonstrations of learning that describe the thinking processes, habits of mind, and dispositions that students need to develop. TIME: 2 minutes (for Slide 47) INTENT: To understand that the Standards for Mathematical Practice describe two types of student learning: 1) thinking process and habits of mind; and 2) mathematical content ___________________________________________________________________________________ The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the thinking processes, habits of mind, and dispositions that students need to develop a deep, flexible, and enduring understanding of mathematics. For example, in Standards for Mathematical Practice 1, students will need to engage in tasks that have them analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They need to monitor and evaluate their progress and be able to change course if necessary. adapted from Briars & Mitchell (2010) Getting Started with the Common Core State Standards California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**Domains Distribution (K-8)**

TIME: 5 minutes (for Slides 48 to 49) INTENT: To understand how the domains build upon each other from grade level to grade level and the focus of each domain ___________________________________________________________________________________ Explain the big ideas of each domain. Counting and Cardinality (K only): Students count a number of objects to find the total number in set and compare numbers. Counting and Cardinality begin in Pre-K with the foundations and continues through Kindergarten. Number and Operations in Base Ten (K-5): Students learn to understand place value, beginning with decomposing and composing numbers in Kindergarten, and move on to understanding and becoming proficient with operations. Ratio and Proportional Relationships (6-7): Students develop and understanding of and apply proportional relationships; understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems in real world situations. Number and Operations in Fractions (3-5): Students develop an understanding of fractions, their equivalence, and their ordering. The Number System (6-8): Students apply and extend previous understanding of operations and fractions to perform operations on rational numbers. Operations and Algebraic Thinking (K-5): Students solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division; students generate and analyze patterns. Expressions and Equations(6-8): Students create and solve algebraic equations and expressions. Functions (8): Students define, evaluate, and compare functions; use functions to model relationships. Geometry (K-5): Students reason with shapes and their attributes, draw and identify lines and angles, and graph points on the coordinate plane. Geometry (6-8): Students solve real world problems involving area, surface area, and volume. Measurement and Data (K-5): Students describe and compare measurable attributes, measure and estimate lengths, and solve problems involving measurements of time, volume, and mass, and convert measurements units within a measurement system. Statistics and Probability (6-8): Students use random sampling to draw inferences about a population; investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

**California Grade 8 Options**

Goal for 8th grade students is Algebra 1. Two sets of standards for 8th grade Standards for Algebra 1 (CA addition to the CCSS) 8th grade Common Core Standards for Mathematics 8th grade Common Core Finalize preparation for students in high school. TIME: 5 minutes (for Slide 50) INTENT: To understand the CCSS grade 8 options ___________________________________________________________________________________ In California, the goal for 8th grade students is Algebra 1. The CCSS has standards for grades K-8 organized by domain, and the courses/clusters begin in grade 9. Each state was able to add an additional 15% to the original CCSS. California added a grade 8 Algebra 1 Course. As a result, there are 2 options for grade 8 students in California. While it is the goal for California 8th graders to take Algebra, students can take the grade 8 course as outlined by the national document or they can take the Algebra 1 course that California designed for 8th grade students. Each option will prepare students for college and career. INSTRUCTOR NOTE: The grade 8 CCSS course is not a remedial course. It is a course that contains rich mathematics and is not aligned to the California Algebra Readiness Program currently designed for grades 8 and above. The SMARTER Balanced Consortium is creating assessments for the 8th grade CCSS Course and not the 8th grade Algebra 1 Course that was designed by California. K-7 standards as augmented prepare students for either set of standards. 2011 © CA County Superintendents Educational Services Association California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

**Mathematics Standards for High School**

Arranged by conceptual categories (not by course): Number and Quantity (p. 49) Algebra (p. 52) Functions (p. 56) Modeling (p. 60) Geometry (p. 62) Statistics and Probability (p. 67) TIME: 10 minutes (for Slides 51 to 54) INTENT: To understand that the CCSS for high school mathematics are organized into conceptual categories; this differs from how the previous standards are organized ___________________________________________________________________________________ Currently, in most districts, 9th grade students are enrolled in Geometry or Algebra 1, and 10th grade students are enrolled in Geometry or Algebra II, etc. [click] The CCSS advocates for a more integrated model where content from several conceptual categories is combined into similar big ideas or key concepts and taught in an integrated fashion (to be discussed later in the presentation). Have participants locate the CCSS for Mathematics handout and follow along: [click] Number and Quantity: the real number system, quantities; the complex number system; and vector and matrix quantities [click] Algebra: seeing structure in expressions; arithmetic with polynomials and rational expressions; creating equations; and reasoning with equations and inequalities [click] Functions: interpreting functions; building functions; linear, quadratic, and exponential models; and trigonometric functions [click] Modeling: Modeling links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making. Modeling is the process of choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to improve decisions. Modeling is best interpreted not as a collection of isolated topics but rather in relation to other standards. Making mathematical models is a Standard for Mathematical Practice, and specific modeling standards appear throughout the high school standards indicated by a star symbol (★). The star symbol sometimes appears on the heading for a group of standards; in that case, it should be understood to apply to all standards in that group. [click] Geometry: congruence; similarity, right triangles, and trigonometry; circles; expressing geometric properties with equations; geometric measurement and dimension; modeling with geometry [click] Statistics and Probability: interpreting categorical and quantitative data; making inferences and justifying conclusions; conditional probability and rules of probability; using probability to make decisions HANDOUTS: CCSS for Mathematics adapted from Foster (2011) Assessment for Learning California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

Algebra II Mathematics III Geometry Mathematics II TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 51 to 54) INTENT: To understand two of the model course pathways for high school ___________________________________________________________________________________ There are two mathematics pathways: [click] Traditional Pathway: An approach typically seen in the U.S. that consists of two Algebra courses and a Geometry course, with some data, probability, and statistics included in each course [click] Integrated Pathway: An approach typically seen internationally that consists of a sequence of three courses, each of which includes Algebra, Geometry, Probability, and Statistics [click] Both pathways lead to courses in higher level mathematics Inform participants that the pathways can be found in Appendix A of the CCSS for Mathematics. HS Algebra I Mathematics I TRADITIONAL Pathway (Typical in U.S.) 2 Algebra courses, 1 Geometry course, with Probability and Statistics interwoven INTEGRATED Pathway (Typical outside of U.S.) 3 courses that attend to Algebra, Geometry, and Probability and Statistics each year adapted from 2011 © CA County Superintendents Educational Services Association California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Overview

27
**Getting to Calculus Sooner: Two Compacted Pathways**

Traditional Compacted Pathway: complete content of 7th, 8th, and HS Algebra I in grades 7 (Compacted 7th Grade) and 8 (8th Grade Algebra I) enabling them to finish Algebra II by the end of the sophomore year. Integrated Compacted Pathway: complete content of 7th, 8th, and Mathematics I in grades 7 (Compacted 7th Grade) and 8 (8th Grade Mathematics I), enabling them to complete Mathematics III by the end of the sophomore year Both prepare students for Precalculus in their junior year and Calculus in their senior year. TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 51 to 54) ___________________________________________________________________________________ There are two ADDITIONAL mathematics pathways: [click] A “compacted” version of the Traditional pathway where no content is omitted, in which students would complete the content of 7th grade, 8th grade, and the High School Algebra I course in grades 7 (Compacted 7th Grade) and 8 (8th Grade Algebra I), which will enable them to reach Calculus or other college-level courses by their senior year. While the K-7 CCSS effectively prepare students for algebra in 8th grade, some standards from 8th grade have been placed in the Accelerated 7th Grade course to make the 8th Grade Algebra I course more manageable. [click] A “compacted” version of the Integrated pathway where no content is omitted, in which students would complete the content of 7th grade, 8th grade, and the Mathematics I course in grades 7 (Compacted 7th Grade) and 8 (8th Grade Mathematics I), which will enable them to reach Calculus or other college-level courses by their senior year. While the K-7 CCSS effectively prepare students for algebra in 8th grade, some standards from 8th grade have been placed in the Accelerated 7th Grade course to make the 8th Grade Mathematics I course more manageable.

**Format of the Overview Domains:**

Overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades TIME: 8 minutes (for Slides 55 to 57) INTENT: To understand the structure of the CCSS for Mathematics ___________________________________________________________________________________ Have participants turn to p. 24 of the CCSS for Mathematics handout. Point out the grade level and explain that the standards are organized into Domains and Clusters. The domains are: Operations and Algebraic Thinking Number and Operations in Base Ten Number and Operations – Fractions Measurement and Data Bulleted under each Domain are the Clusters. For example, there are between one and four clusters for each domain in grade 3. Note that Mathematical Practice Standards are on every overview page. Have participants turn to their specific grade level or conceptual cluster overview page (see below) and examine the domains, cluster headings, and mathematical practices. Note that Advanced Placement Probability and Statistics and Calculus do not have overview pages.

**Format of the Standards**

TIME: 8 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 55 to 57) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Inform participants that we will be looking at how to read the standards. Standards are located under the Domain and Cluster and define what each student should understand and be able to do. Clusters are groups of related standards. Note that standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related because mathematics is a connected subject. Domains are larger groups of related standards. Standards from different domains may sometimes be closely related. Have participants locate p. 14 in the CCSS for Mathematics handout and point out the Number and Operations Cluster, Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic. Ask them to compare the cluster in their document to the cluster on the screen. Difference: Standard 1.1 is bold, italicized, and underlined.

**Assessment: What We Know**

Assessments will begin in California is a governing state in the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium. Assessments will include: Computer Adaptive Assessments (interim & summative) Performance Assessments (interim & summative) Selected Response Constructed Response Extended Performance Assessments TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 58 to 63) INTENT: To provide an overview of the broad features of SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium’s (SBAC’s) assessment plan ___________________________________________________________________________________ There are still many unanswered questions about what the 2014 assessments will look like. Here is what we know: Although originally associated with PAARC, California has recently signed on with SBAC and has opted to take a governing role. This means California educators will take a strong role in developing the assessments. Unlike current CST assessments, the new CCSS assessments will be computer-based and be adaptive. Adaptive means that the questions will adjust in difficulty level as the student answers. This will prevent frustration and burnout as students take the test—and thus give a more accurate read of their proficiency levels. In addition to end of the year summative assessment, SBAC will provide item banks and performance assessments for districts to locally administer benchmarks.

**Common Core State Standards Implementation Considerations**

All Teachers Scaffold comprehension of increasingly complex texts Integrate media sources into instructional activities Support/monitor informal talk ELA Teachers Teach more informational text Teach how a wide variety of forms fall into three overarching modes of writing: Argument, Expository, and Narrative Science and History Teachers Teach Reading and Writing skills in their content areas explicitly Mathematics Teachers Teach the habits of mind that students need to develop a deep, flexible, and enduring understanding of mathematics TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 58 to 63) INTENT: To provide a summary of the overview of implementation considerations ___________________________________________________________________________________ [click] ALL teachers will need to: Pay attention to text complexity – not just the reading levels, possibly learning new ways to determine the complexity of the text book and other supplemental readings that are assigned. Find ways in which video, computer animations, audio, and other technologies will add to lessons both in presentations and in how students share their learning. Create opportunities for students to talk to one another using academic vocabulary and develop ways to monitor these conversations and teach students to monitor their own conversations. [click] ELA teachers will need to figure out which genres fall into which “buckets” at which grade levels, and this will have to be agreed on at the school or district level. [click] Science and History teachers will need to learn how to incorporate reading and writing strategies into their content lessons.

Ask participants to locate the Rigor/Relevance Framework handout. In order to prepare our students for a global economy, we need to teach them how to apply and adapt their learning to predictable and unpredictable situations that arise in the future. We are preparing them for jobs of the future that do not exist as of yet. Incorporating more rigorous and relevant instruction in classrooms is necessary for the development of 21st century thinking skills. The Rigor/Relevance Framework was created by the International Center for Leadership in Education founded by Dr. Willard Dagget. “It is a tool to examine curriculum, instruction, and assessment.”1 The Framework shows the relationship between the Knowledge Taxonomy (Bloom’s) and the Application Model. Both are equally important in developing rigorous and relevant instruction. HANDOUTS: Rigor/Relevance Framework 1International Center for Leadership (n.d.). Rigor/Relevance Framework.

TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 8 to 18) ___________________________________________________________________________________ The four quadrants of the Rigor/Relevance Framework engage students and teachers in different roles. In Quadrant A, “teachers expend energy to create and assess learning activities—provide information, create worksheets, and grade student work. The student is often the passive learner.”1 In Quadrant B, “the emphasis is on the student doing real-world work. This student work is often more complicated than Quadrant A work and requires more time.” 1 In Quadrant C, “students are expected to think in complex ways—to analyze, compare, create and evaluate.”1 In Quadrant D, learning “is more demanding and requires students to think and work. Roles shift from the teacher-centered instruction in Quadrant A to student-centered instruction in Quadrants B, C, and D.”1 As we think about preparing our students for the 21st Century, we want to actively engage them in more rigorous and relevant instruction, spending more time in Quadrants B, C, and D. In a moment, we will begin to take a closer look at instruction in the English Language Arts classroom.

**Influence on Student Learning**

“…teachers themselves need to understand the standards. Teachers must have deep and appropriate content knowledge to reach that understanding; they must be adaptable, with enough mastery to teach students with a range of abilities; and they must have the ability to inspire at least some of their students to the highest levels of mathematical achievement.” Ewing (n.d.) The Common Core Math Standards “…teachers themselves need to understand the standards. Teachers must have deep and appropriate content knowledge to reach that understanding; they must be adaptable, with enough mastery to teach students with a range of abilities; and they must have the ability to inspire at least some of their students to the highest levels of mathematical achievement.” Ewing (n.d.)

They are based on National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ (NCTM) Process Standards (Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, NCTM, 2000). [click] Problem solving should be an integral part of mathematics. By solving mathematical problems students acquire ways of thinking, habits of persistence and curiosity, and confidence in unfamiliar situations. [click] Reasoning and proof – People who reason and think analytically tend to note patterns, structure, or regularities in both real-world and mathematical situations. [click] Communication – When students are challenged to communicate the results of their thinking to others orally or in writing, they learn to be clear, convincing, and precise in their use of mathematical language. [click] Representations of mathematical ideas are represented in a variety of ways: pictures, concrete materials, tables, graphs, …are fundamental to how people understand and use those ideas. [click] Connections of mathematical ideas allow for deeper and more lasting understanding. National Research Council’s (NRC) Strands of Mathematical Proficiency (Adding It Up, NRC, 2001) [click] Adaptive Reasoning: capacity for logical thought, explanation, and justification [click] Strategic Competence: ability to formulate, represent, and solve mathematical problems [click] Conceptual Understanding: comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations, and relations [click] Productive Disposition: belief in one’s own efficacy to do mathematics; mathematics as useful [click] Procedural Fluency: skills to carry out procedures [click] Productive Disposition plays a significant role in the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

This organization of the standards helps us consider the implications the CCSS will have on instruction. In addition to teaching content, we need to plan instruction to help students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them—a challenge we’ve always been faced with in mathematics, but now it is a standard we need to help students achieve. In our lesson plans, we need to create opportunities for students to engage in reasoning and explaining or using multiple representations and tools to model problems. 7.

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is an approach to teaching mathematics where teachers utilize what they know about their student’s understanding of mathematics to select problems, pose those problems, question students, and facilitate discussion and sharing. CGI focuses on student thinking and analysis through the use of word problems, combined with the math process standards: problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and representation. As we solve the Table Pattern Task described on the next slide, consider how the CGI process connects to the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

The Table Pattern Task engaged us in “doing math” with a partner and discussing ideas at your table and with the whole group, so we were actively engaged in the bottom layers of the pyramid. [click] The CGI Process begins with a rich problem or task. Ask, “When we think about the Rigor/Relevance Framework, in which quadrant does this task fall?” (Pair share or choral response - B or D) Ask, “How did the facilitator invite you to engage in the problem?” Have participants pair share or volunteer to share whole group. [click] Asked questions while presenting the task in chunks, first with triangular tables, then with quadrilateral tables, etc., to make sure we understood the problem). [click] Tell participants that the facilitator continued to ask questions to consider possible strategies and relationships. Ask, “What did the facilitator do to engage you in the process of step 4 (question, justify, critique thinking)? [click] Circulated and asked us to explain what we knew while we worked; asked us to present our solutions and explain our reasoning; asked the audience to ask questions about the solution/strategy. [click] Tell participants that in the final step, we plan instruction according to student needs.

**Table Pattern Task and Standards for Mathematical Practice**

Standard for Mathematical Practice 3: Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. How did the teacher facilitate the task to support Standard 3? As a student, what did you do to demonstrate proficiency of Standard 3? What other Standards for Mathematical Practice were addressed by this task? TIME: 30 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 50 to 56) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Ask, “How did the CGI process engage students in the Standards for Mathematical Practice?” Tell participants that many practices may have been addressed by this problem. [click] To begin with, let’s start looking at Practice 3 because the Table Pattern Task provides an opportunity to make conjectures, and the cooperative approach to the problem provides an opportunity to critique the reasoning of others. [click] How did the teacher facilitate the task to support Standard 3? Lower level questioning to gain entry to the problem Questions to think about how to organize thinking/work Questioning to consider possible strategies Pattern blocks/handout to model the problem Peer support to discuss the problem/strategize together [click] What did the student do? (Questions for Planning and Observation, North Bay Mathematics Project) Make conjectures, then explore the problem to support or disprove their conjectures and then refine or change their conjectures? Construct their justification? Use objects? Drawings? Diagrams? Examples and counter examples? Have opportunities to explain their conclusions and communicate their reasoning with others? Have opportunities to ask useful questions to seek clarity? Follow the arguments of others looking for flaws and explaining them? [click] What other Standards for Mathematical Practice were addressed by this task? Have participants locate the Facilitating Mathematical Thinking with Effective Questions handout which can be used as a resource to facilitate problem solving.

**Modifying the Table Pattern Task**

How might we vary the task for different grade levels? Using the CCSS for Mathematics handout, work with grade-level partners to provide some examples. TIME: 30 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 50 to 56) INTENT: To consider how the task might be modified for different grade levels ___________________________________________________________________________________ OPTIONAL SLIDE: Omit if short on time. The CGI Process engages students in a rich task. Depending on the grade level, we could generate different goals for our students. For example, we wouldn’t ask a fourth grader to generate a three variable rule. Have participants locate the CCSS for Mathematics handout and turn to their grade level. Have pairs or small groups of participants decide on how they would modify this task to meet the needs and goals of their students. 3.OA.9 Identify arithmetic patterns… (p.13) 4.OA.5 Generate a number or shape pattern…(p.17) 5.OA.3 Generate two numerical patterns…(p.21) 6.EE.9 Use variables to represent two quantities…(p.27) 7.EE.4 Use variables to represent quantities…(p.31) A-CED.2* Create equations in two or more variables …(p.54) HANDOUTS: CCSS for Mathematics California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instruction, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics

**Students’ Beliefs About Their Intelligence**

Fixed Mindset Avoid learning situations if they might make mistakes Try to hide, rather than fix, mistakes or deficiencies Growth Mindset Work to correct mistakes and deficiencies View effort as positive; increase effort when challenged TIME: 10 minutes (for Slides 57 to 62) INTENT: To understand that teaching a growth mindset helps students develop a productive disposition ___________________________________________________________________________________ Review the slide. A student’s mindset influences his/her motivation. Briars (2011) Implementing the More Challenging Aspects of Common Core State Standards California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instruction, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics

67
**Students Can Develop Growth Mindsets**

Explicit instruction about the brain, its function, and that intellectual development is the result of effort and learning has increased students’ achievement in middle school mathematics. Teacher praise influences mindsets: Fixed: Praise refers to intelligence Growth: Praise refers to effort, engagement, perseverance TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 57 to 62) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Ask, “How many of you can think of a student who had a fixed mindset? A growth mindset? Many unmotivated students have a fixed mindset. We need to help students develop a growth mindset so they will put in the effort. Review the slide. Briars (2011) Implementing the More Challenging Aspects of Common Core State Standards California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instruction, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics

68
**Expectancy: Can I Do This?**

Attribute successes to high effort or effective strategy Attribute failures to low effort or ineffective strategy Avoid saying, “You’re smart” Discuss the different views of intelligence Be explicit about what sorts of effort lead to success Design instruction to support successful learning experiences TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 57 to 62) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Review the slide. Possible talking points: Telling a student s/he is “smart” reinforces a belief that success is based primarily on ability rather than practice and persistence. Saying you’re smart reinforces a fixed mindset because you are or you aren’t. Efforts that lead to success are taking notes, demonstrating problem-solving strategies, mathematical discourse, asking for help, and/or teaching others. Strategies for designing instruction to support success are connecting to existing understandings, providing balanced instruction, academic language support, structured peer support, and differentiated instruction. Ask, “When you think about the Table Pattern Task, how was a growth mindset supported?” Participants should pair share at their tables. If time allows, call on one or two individuals to share out.

**Value: Is This Important?**

“How many of us have used the “it’s on the test” to emphasize the importance of a skill or assignment?” TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 57 to 62) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Once we address “Can I Do This?,” we need to address “Is This Important?” Many of us have used the “it’s on the test” as a reason to emphasize the importance to students of a skill or assignment. Sometimes this rationale is effective because it addresses a student’s short-term goal of passing the class or receiving a good grade, but the research connecting rigor, relevance, and relationships other critical reasons why a student sees something as important. California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instruction, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics

**Value: Is This Important?**

Connect classroom activities to personal short-term goals. Connect classroom activities to personal long-term goals. Place classroom activities in personally meaningful contexts. TIME: 10 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 57 to 62) ___________________________________________________________________________________ Review the slide as follows: [click] Other personal short-term goals besides grades include: goals—personal pride, peer and parental approval, recognition, autonomy (“I get to decide what I do”). [click] Personal long-term goals connect to possible careers or jobs, including post-secondary education. Long- and short-term goals may be addressed in personal conversations with students. However, instruction that is more relevant or personally meaningful not only increases student interest, but also deepens learning through application and students are better able to retain skills and knowledge (retention through connections—Quadrant B, C, D learning). [click] Personally meaningful contexts include applying mathematics to situations they can relate to (concrete realia, referencing local places or people, interdisciplinary connections with classes they are currently taking, etc.) If time allows, tell participants to think of some skills or concepts they have taught in which content was put into a context to which students could relate. Have them discuss with their table, and then call on several tables to share out. California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instruction, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics

**Step 1: Select a Standard Model**

Concept: Add and Subtract Fractions Domain: Number and Operations – Fractions 4.NF Standard: 3b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/ /8 = /8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8 TIME: 60 minutes (CONTINUED for Slides 14 to 23) INTENT: To provide a model of Step 1 ___________________________________________________________________________________ For our purposes today, we are are selecting the concept of adding and subtracting fractions. Adding and Subtracting Simple Fractions: We choose this concept because it is an example of a grade level shift. This concept is taught in 3rd grade in the current standards and will be taught in 4th grade in the CCSS. Regarding this choice of standard, using the CCSS for Mathematics, we selected standard 4NF.3b in grade 4. We choose this standard because it is new to the grade level and because of its complexity, detail, and level of application that it requires. Next, we will align the standard. HANDOUTS: CCSS for Mathematics Examples of Grade Level Shifts California’s Common Core State Standards: Toolkit | Instructional Materials, K-5 | ELA and Mathematics
