Common Core State Standards in Action at HCS Presentation for Partners in Education (PIE) November, 2013 by Betsy Knox and Nancy Pollack HCS Literacy and Math Coordinators
Standards vs. Curriculum The tools and materials used to help students meet the goals outlined in the standards. Define the knowledge and skills students should have within their K-12 educational careers.
Common Core Transition Timeline CC = Common Core State StandardsGE = Grade Expectations NECAP = New England Common Assessment Program SBAC = SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium WE ARE HERE
Common Core ELA/Literacy Standards College and Career Readiness Reading Speaking, Listening & Language Writing
▪ Demonstrate independence. ▪Build strong content knowledge. ▪Respond to varying demands of audience, task, purpose, and discipline. ▪Comprehend as well as critique. ▪Value evidence. ▪Use technology and digital media strategically and capably. ▪Come to understand other perspectives and cultures. College and Career Ready students can…
Big Ideas from the writers of the ELA CCSS David Coleman & Sue Pimentel Students should be able to – ● closely read complex texts, ● evaluate and gather evidence, and ● integrate information into clear, coherent writing that demonstrates critical thinking.
HCS implements the CCSS in Reading: Fundations Second Edition Close Reading Strategies Complex Text Building Stamina
Reading & Writing: Informational Texts & Short Research Projects
Lucy Calkins Units of Study: a Writing curriculum for grades K-5
HCS implements the CCSS in: Listening and Speaking

1. Make sense of complex problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Standards for Mathematical Practice
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Math and Language Arts will be assessed by SBAC Spring 2015 First Administration of SBAC C. A. T. Computer Adapted Testing
