1 Common Core Lite English Language Arts Brought to you by….
Provide an overview of the Common Core English Language Arts State Standards Conduct this workshop with a process that you can replicate with large or small groups of teachers Provide you with the materials necessary to get all K-12 teachers ‘dipped’ into the standards 2
4 1. Our focus today is to learn HOW to investigate the Common Core State Standards. 2. You will not investigate all of the standards today. You will be given a process and materials to duplicate today’s process in your school. 3. WI has Early Learning Standards that address expectations for children birth to the beginning of first grade. When developing curriculum and assessment practices for 4K and 5K, the WMELS need to be considered along side the CCSS
1.An open and willing mind 2.The materials at your table 5
The CCSS mandates the student learning outcomes for every grade level/grade band. Students will be tested and instructional effectiveness will be measured based on CCSS (beginning 2015). Federal funding is tied to CCSS adoption, implementation, and accountability. ELA and Mathematics CCSS are just the beginning. Science and Social Studies are in the draft stage…more subject area standards are being developed. CCSS create an opportunity for educators to talk and share knowledge across state lines. 6
…the acquisition of the knowledge and skills a student needs to enroll and succeed in credit- bearing, first-year courses at a postsecondary institution (such as a two- or four-year college, trade school, or technical school) without the need for remediation. (ACT) The standards were built on this vision for every single student who graduates from high school. 7

Only Grades K-5 have Foundational Skill Standards concepts of print, the alphabetic principle, and other basic conventions of the English writing system not an end in and of themselves but necessary and important components of an effective, comprehensive reading program instruction should be differentiated: good readers will need much less practice with these concepts than struggling readers 11 A Note About Unique Structures…
English Language Arts for grades K-8 are listed by grade (K, 1, 2 etc.) and 9-12 are in grade bands (9-10, 11-12) ELA standards include teachers of History, Social Studies, Science & Technical Subjects 12

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. 2. 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. Anchor Standards
