1 The Common Core State Standards August 28, 2012 Mr. Steven Guarnieri Mr. Keith Houghteling

2 Directives from the Chicago Board of Education In order to ensure that all students are college and career-ready, CPS is implementing three inter-related instructional improvement strategies for the school year.

3 Three Instructional Improvement Strategies Common Core State Standards CPS Framework for Teaching – REACH Evaluation Process – Understanding by Design Unit Planning Full School Day

4 The Common Core State Standards Mission Statement The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them.

5 The Common Core State Standards The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.

6 Portrait of a Common Core Student They demonstrate independence. They build strong content knowledge. They comprehend as well as critique.

7 Portrait of a Common Core Student They value evidence. They use technology and digital media strategically. They come to understand other perspectives and cultures.

8 Portrait of a Common Core Student Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Attend to precision.

9 Portrait of a Common Core Student Use appropriate tools strategically. Look for and make use of structure. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

10 Do these portraits reflect our students? At your table, have a brief (3-5 minutes) discussion about the qualities of a Common Core student and whether those traits are reflected in Simeon students. We shall share out after the discussion.

11 Common Core Students How do we create a Common Core Student? We create units that directly impact the student’s learning of Literacy and Mathematics knowledge, skills, processes, and goals, using content as a vehicle to achieve these standards. “I’m driving math!”

12 The Common Core State Standards Headings (CCSS) LiteracyMathematics Reading History LanguageReading in Science and Technical Subjects ModelingNumber and Quantity Reading Informational Text WritingWriting for Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects AlgebraFunctions Reading Literature Speaking and Listening Statistics and Probability Geometry

13 The Match Game On each table are packs of Post-it notes. Write down the courses you will teach on the Post-it notes. Also on the tables are Common Core books from which you may review the headings or standards. (10 minutes)

14 The Match Game Then, after reviewing the different headings for the Common Core Standards, place your course underneath any heading you feel will be addressed by your teaching of your course. (10 minutes) It is likely that you will be placing your course underneath multiple headings. Note: There are two main categories of Common Core Standards; LITERACY and MATHEMATICS.

15 The Anchor Standards Literacy The Anchor Standards for ELA Reading are on page 35 and 60. The Anchor Standards for ELA Writing are on page 41 and 63. The Anchor Standards for ELA Speaking and Listening are on page 48. The Anchor Standards for ELA Language are on page 51.

16 The Standards for Mathematical Practice The Standards for Mathematical Practice are on pages 6-8 of the CCSS Math book. The high school standards for math are listed in conceptual categories: Number and Quantity (58-61) Algebra (62-66) Functions (67-71) Modeling (72-73) Geometry (74-78) Statistics and Probability (79-83)

17 The Match Game Then, after reviewing the different headings for the Common Core Standards, place your course underneath any heading you feel will be addressed by your teaching of your course. (10 minutes) It is likely that you will be placing your course underneath multiple headings. Note: There are two main categories of Common Core Standards; LITERACY and MATHEMATICS.

21 Gallery Walk and Review Now, walk over to the other set of boards and review what your colleagues posted. On your response sheet, write answers to the following: 1. What did you find most striking about the postings? 2. What similarities or differences about the postings did you notice? 3. What opportunities for collaboration across disciplines did you see?

22 Conclusions This is real, this is happening, we are jumping in headfirst. Teachers will have to balance this implementation with the practice (and testing of) the CRS standards.

23

24 The World of Possibilities (Back) After our discussion and review, write a reflection about what possibilities await us this coming year. Consider the following in your response: – How do you think the implementation of the Common Core State Standards will change your teaching practice? – What support will you need to implement the Common Core State Standards successfully?

25 Next Steps Please continue this conversation in departmental and course level meetings. How will I help to create a Common Core student?

26 Leave the CCSS Books on the Table Each teacher will receive (or has already received) a Common Core book, so please leave the books on the table. THANK YOU!
