The Arkansas Common Core Curriculum Framework
What the Framework is The Common Core Framework is designed as a bridge between classroom instructional practices and the Common Core and more importantly, the GED exam. It is for grade levels 6.0 – It has 4 elements for each Anchor: 1.OCTAE’s CCR Standards, 2.Skills that the students should acquire as a result of the learning, 3.Sample Activities to help engage the student in the process, 4.Resources to help facilitate learning.

Timeline In May, Director Walker tasked the State Office with developing a Framework that would align with the Common Core elements of the GED. After the committee was developed, committee members worked over the summer to develop the document. This included a 2-day work retreat held in Little Rock at the AALRC. Meetings were also held using Wiggio® and conference call.
Tasks The first task the committee tackled was to look at other states that had developed similar documents. Committee members looked at several states, including: New York, Kentucky, Florida and Georgia. The committee did an excellent job of developing the initial document that aligned with the Common Core. During the work retreat held in July, committee members broke into groups and added sample activities, resources including websites and textbooks that align with OCTAE’s CCR standards.
Math: Level D (Grades 6.0 – 8.9) CCR STANDARD Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational numbers. ANCHOR 6.NS.5
Math: Level D SKILL Understand that positive and negative numbers are used together to describe quantities having opposite directions or values (e.g., temperature above/below zero, elevation above/below sea level, credits/debits, positive/negative electric charge); use positive and negative numbers to represent quantities in real-world contexts, explaining the meaning of 0 in each situation.
Math: Level D SAMPLE ACTIVITIES Examples are closely related to the skills and can be found in the resources provided to the right.

Math: Level E (grades 9.0 – 12.9) CCR STANDARD Extend the properties of exponents to rational exponents. ANCHOR N.RN.2
Math: Level E SKILL Rewrite expressions involving radicals and rational exponents using the properties of exponents.
Math: Level E SAMPLE ACTIVITIES Examples are closely related to the skills and can be found in the resources provided to the right.

Reading Standards Level D (grades 6.0 – 8.9) CCR STANDARD Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. ANCHOR 1. RI/RL.7.1 ANCHOR 1. RH ANCHOR 1. RST.6-8.1
Reading Level D SKILL RI/RL7.1.a. Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. RH b. Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources. RST c. Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts.
Reading Level D SAMPLE ACTIVITIES RI/RL7.1.a Identify and describe the specific pieces of evidence that an author uses in support of claims or conclusions. RI/RL7.1.a. Determine whether evidence supports a claim. RI/RL7.1.a Explain the steps that a writer uses to build an argument. RH b. Pull specific evidence from a document or other source to support inferences or analyses of given processes, events, or concepts. RST c. Pull specific evidence from a written source to support a finding or conclusion.

Language Standards Levels D & E ( ) CCR STANDARD Acquire and use accurately a range of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening at the college and career readiness level; demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when encountering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression. ANCHOR 6
Language Levels D & E SKILL Acquire and use accurately level-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases; gather vocabulary knowledge when considering a word or phrase important to comprehension or expression. (L.8.6)
Language Levels D & E SAMPLE ACTIVITIES In the below lesson, the student will learn how to determine the connotative meaning of words by asking, “What do these words make me think about?” https://learnzillion.com/lessons/2004-determine-the-connotative-meaning-of-words (2. LearnZillion.com)
