4 What is the Common Core? State standards across most of the U.S. Currently in place in NC for this school year Creates a consistent curriculum across the country Focuses on college and career readiness Posted on ISS webpage & NCDPI webpage Currently in place for Math and English Language Arts

6 Common Core Math Math Clusters Continued… Number and Operations- Fractions Identifying fractions Fractions on a number line Equivalent fractions Comparing fractions Measurement and Data Time to nearest minute Measure/estimate liquid volume and mass Represent/interpret bar and pictographs Area and perimeter Geometry Two dimensional shapes and their attributes

7 How has math changed with Common Core? More conceptual and abstract verses just procedural Students asked to solve problems in variety of ways Students are explaining the why and the how Writing is more integrated into math

8 Common Core English Language Arts Reading: Literature Stories, fables, myths, drama, poems Focus: Characters, point of view, moral/lesson, context clues, literal and non-literal words, illustrations Reading: Informational Text Focus: Main idea/details, sequence, cause/effect, context clues, compare/contrast, text features
