1 So, What’s New in the Common Core State Standards?
Susan A Gendron Senior Fellow International Center for Leadership in Education June 2011

2 Standards Charge Create the next generation of K-12 standards
All students college and career ready in literacy and mathematics No later than end of high school Build upon the foundation laid by the states Create a vision of what it means to be a literate student in the twenty-first century Students who readily undertake the close, attentive reading that is the heart of understanding and enjoying complex works of literature. Habitually perform the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information They actively seek wide, deep and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational text that builds knowledge, enlarges experiences and broadens worldviews. They demonstrate cogent reasoning and use evidence that is essential for deliberations and responsible citizenship

3 Common Core State Standards
Fewer Clearer Higher

4 Common Core Standards Criteria
Rigorous Clear and specific Teachable and learnable Measurable Coherent Grade by grade standards Internationally benchmarked Rigor high-level cognitive demands by asking students to demonstrate deep conceptual understanding through the application of content knowledge and skills to new situations. sufficient guidance and clarity so that they are teachable, learnable, and measurable. Teachable and learnable: Provide sufficient guidance for the design of curricula and instructional materials. The standards must be reasonable in scope, instructionally manageable, and promote depth of understanding. The standards will not prescribe how they are taught and learned but will allow teachers flexibility to teach and students to learn in various instructionally relevant contexts. Measureable: Student attainment of the standards should be observable and verifiable and the standards can be used to develop broader assessment frameworks Coherent: The standards should convey a unified vision of the big ideas and supporting concepts within a discipline and reflect a progression of learning that is meaningful and appropriate. Grade-by-grade standards: The standards will have limited repetition across the grades or grade spans to help educators align instruction to the standards. Internationally benchmarked: The standards will be informed by the content, rigor, and organization of standards of high-performing countries so that all students are prepared for succeeding in our global economy and society.

5 44 States + DC Have Adopted the Common Core State Standards

13 Design and Organization
Media skills blended throughout Focus on achievement leaves room for teachers, curriculum developers and states to determine how those goals should be reached and what additional topics should be taught Teachers are free to provide students with what ever tools their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful

14 Design and Organization
K−12 standards Grade-specific end-of-year expectations Developmentally appropriate, cumulative progression of skills and understandings One-to-one correspondence with College Career Anchor standards 14 14

15 Design and Organization
Four strands: Reading (including Reading Foundational Skills) Writing Speaking and Listening Language Focus on achievement leaves room for teachers, curriculum developers and states to determine how those goals should be reached and what additional topics should be taught Teachers are free to provide students with what ever tools their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful

16 Reading Design and Organization
Three sections: 1. Literature 2. Informational Text 3. Foundational Skills (K-5) Literature: students gain adequate exposure to a range of texts and tasks. Rigor is also infused through the requirement that students read increasingly complex texts through the grades. Students advancing through the grades are expected to meet each year’s grade-specific standards and retain or further develop skills and understandings mastered in preceding grades.

17 Literary/Informational Text
Literature Informational Text Stories Drama Poetry Literary Nonfiction and Historical, Scientific, and Technical Texts Includes children’s adventure stories, folktales, legends, fables, fantasy, realistic fiction, and myth Includes staged dialogue and brief familiar scenes Includes nursery rhymes and the subgenres of the narrative poem, limerick, and free verse poem Includes biographies and autobiographies; books about history, social studies, science, and the arts; technical texts, including directions, forms, and information displayed in graphs, charts, or maps; and digital sources on a range of topics

18 Reading Framework for NAEP 2009

Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas. 3. Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.

20 College and Career Readiness Standards for Reading
Craft and Structure 4. Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word choices shape meaning or tone. 5. Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole. 6. Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text.

21 College and Career Readiness Standards for Reading

22 College and Career Readiness Standards for Reading
Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity 10 .Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.

23 Text complexity is defined by:
Overview of Text Complexity Reading Standards include over exemplar texts (stories and literature, poetry, and informational texts) that illustrate appropriate level of complexity by grade Text complexity is defined by: Qualitative Qualitative measures – levels of meaning, structure, language conventionality and clarity, and knowledge demands Quantitative Quantitative measures – readability and other scores of text complexity Best measured by an attentive reader Ability to make an informed decision about the difficulty of a text Knowledge of four factors in developing effective tools: Levels of Meaning or Purpose Reader and Task: Determining whether a given text is appropriate for the student: Cognitive abilities Motivation Topic knowledge Linguistic and discourse knowledge Comprehension strategies Experiences “Reading for Understanding, 2002, The RAND Reading Study group” Quantitative:Word length or frequency (Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level text, Dale-Chall Readability Formula, Lexile) Sentence length Text cohesion (University of Memphis, Coh-Metrix) Measurement tools ( Lexile example Structure Language Conventionality & Clarity Knowledge Demands Reader and Task Reader and Task – background knowledge of reader, motivation, interests, and complexity generated by tasks assigned

24 Qualitative Measure Levels of Meaning (literary texts) or Purpose (informational texts) Structure Language Conventionality and Clarity Knowledge Demands: Life Experiences (literary texts) Knowledge Demands: Cultural/Literary Knowledge (chiefly literary texts) Knowledge Demands: Content/Discipline Knowledge (chiefly informational texts) Page 6 sheet

25 Quantitative Measures
Readability tools: (Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level test, Lexile Framework for Reading, Dale-Chall) Use multiple tools

61 Characteristics Fewer and more rigorous.
Aligned with college and career expectations – prepare all students for success upon graduating from high school. Internationally benchmarked, so that all students are prepared for succeeding in our global economy and society. Includes rigorous content and application of higher- order skills. Builds upon strengths and lessons of current state standards. Research based

62 Coherence Articulated progressions of topics and performances that are developmental and connected to other progressions Conceptual understanding and procedural skills emphasized equally NCTM states coherence also means that instruction, assessment, and curriculum are aligned

63 Focus Key ideas, understandings, and skills are identified
Deep learning of concepts is stressed That is, time is spent on a topic and on learning it well. This counters the “mile wide, inch deep” criticism leveled at most current U.S. standards.

64 Clarity and Specificity
Skills and concepts are clearly defined Being able to apply concepts and skills to new situations is expected

65 Standards for Mathematical Practice
Describe mathematical “habits of mind” Standards for mathematical proficiency: reasoning, problem solving, modeling, decision making, and engagement Connect with content standards in each grade

66 Mathematics/Standards for Mathematical Practice
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning 1.Analyze givens, constraints, relationships and goals

67 Critical Areas – similar to NCTM’s Curriculum Focal Points
Grade Level Overview Critical Areas – similar to NCTM’s Curriculum Focal Points All K-8 have critical areas – areas that should be emphasized and require more time at the given grade level. This aligns exactly with CFP

68 Format of K-8 Standards Grade Level Domain
