COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS (CCSS) PARENT WORKSHOP

2
Bonita Unified School District

3
Common Core State adopted in August of 2010 Gives us flexibility to organize and implement the standards Instruction is integrated into our classrooms ensuring the highest level of student achievement can take place We have the ability to research, pilot and purchase the instructional materials

4
States Adopting CCSS

5
Why the CCSS Initiative is driven by states Consistent expectations nationally College and career ready American competitive edge Standards are benchmarked to international standards Fewer standards in greater depth

6
English Language Arts Shifts in Common Core More instructional time on informational text Emphasis on reading, writing, and speaking based upon evidence / justification of responses Writing assignments will focus on Opinions / Arguments Informative / Explanatory Texts Narratives

7
CCSS ELA Standards Build Kinder to 12 th Grade STRAND—Reading for Information

8
Common Core 6 Shifts in Math Focus: fewer topics covered in greater depth Coherence: connect learning within and across grades Fluency: perform mathematics with speed and accuracy Understanding: use mathematics in complex situations Application: know when and how applying math can solve a problem Dual Intensity: achieve fluency and conceptual understanding/application Example: 9 x 5 = 45……..Explain why the answer is 45 (fluency)(conceptual)

9
8 Mathematical Practices for Grades K-12 8 Mathematical Practices: 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 (Within each mathematical practice, there are several standards)

10
Common Math Path in Grades 6-12 Grade Common Core Math Path 6 Math 6 7 Math 7 8 Math 8 9 HS Algebra I 10 Geometry 11 Algebra II 12 Advanced Classes Honors Pre-Calculus Calculus AP Statistics Advanced Math

11
Common Core for the Special Needs Student Special needs students will continue to participate in assessments as stated in their Individual Education Plans (IEP’s) Details for testing are still being developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Classroom academic and assessment accommodations and modifications will continue to be made through students’ IEPs Common Core will provide a change in curriculum, but no changes will be made to special education laws

12
CCSS Assessments Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Implemented beginning 2015

13
CCSS Assessments Students in grades 3-8 and in grade 11 will take the Smarter Balanced Assessments in the areas of: Math English Students will take these assessments online Questions on these assessments will include: Selected response Short answer Performance task

14
Timeline for CCSS Assessments 2013 – 2014: The field test for CCSS will be administered in the spring Students take either math or English 2014 – 2015: Students in grades and in grade 11 will take math and English test These scores will be used as the baseline score for Bonita Unified

15
How are the CCSS being implemented in classrooms? Using complete sentences Justifying responses Using technology Reading and analyzing informational text Exploring concepts at a deeper, more complex level
