1 Kentucky Core Academic Standards Spencer County Schools “It’s not just another thing… It’s the most important thing.”

2 To provide a general overview of the Kentucky Core Academic Standards document. Today’s Focus

3 Is it Common Core State Standards? OR Kentucky Core Academic Standards ? What’s in a Name?

4  Tell me what you already know about the Kentucky Core Academic Standards (KCAS).  What do you think you need to know about the KCAS?  Discuss what you have learned about KCAS? (Exit Slip) KWL

5  Focus on college / career readiness  Revised standards  Revised assessment system  Collaborate across all groups / levels  Improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning Senate Bill 1

6  Part of SB 1  KCAS are based on the National Standards  Focus on college/career readiness  Adopted by 34 states  Assessment begins  Addresses English/Language Arts and Math  E/LA also includes Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects Key Points

7  Anchor Standards – These ‘anchors’ define general, cross- disciplinary expectations that indicate readiness to enter college/workforce. There are 4 sets of ‘anchors’ which will be the same K – 12: - Reading - Writing - Language - Speaking/Listening  Strands – The ‘anchors’ are divided into “strands” (i.e. Key Ideas and Details under Reading).  Grade Specific Standards – These ‘standards’ define end- of-year expectations designed to guide student progression.  Grade Bands – ‘Standards’ are divided into individual grade ‘bands’ (grades K-8) and two years bands for high schools (grades 9 -12).  Appendices – These include exemplar texts, performance tasks and student work. “The focus of the new standards is on RESULTS rather than MEANS.” English/Language Arts

8 Anchor Standards Strands

10  Integrated Model, which includes research and media skills.  Shared responsibility for literacy development. Science, Social Studies and Technical Subjects are addressed for grades 6 – 12. Other Literacy Points

11  Math standards are organized by grade level K – 8.  High school standards are arranged by strands:  Number/Quantity  Algebra  Functions  Modeling  Geometry  Statistics/Probability Math

12  Mathematical Practices – describe varieties of expertise that mathematic educators at all levels should seek to develop.  Domains – overarching concepts and topics: (e.g. Numbers and Operations in Base 10)  Clusters – groups of related standards within each Domain: (e.g. Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.)  Standards – define what students should understand/be able to do: (e.g. Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.) Math

13 Standards for Mathematical Content (p age 5)

15 Standards for Mathematical Content Domain Cluster Standards

16  How does Everyday Math align with the KCAS?  How does ACT Quality Core align with the KCAS?  How does the Springboard Curriculum align with the KCAS?  When will we receive the standards for Science and Social Studies?  How can the related arts support the KCAS?  How do we provide a bridge for students as we implement the new standards?  How do we provide support to struggling students? Future Considerations

17  New standards and other resources are posted on KDE website.  Also see from the Common Core Curriculum Mapping Project for units that address each standard.www.commoncore.org Resources

18 Discuss what you have learned about Kentucky Core Academic Standards. Think about what you will do next. Exit Slip
