1 Common Core State Standards Overview Webinar for School District Leaders August 10, 2011 Jessica Vavrus and Greta Bornemann OSPI Teaching and Learning Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy I. Dorn, State Superintendent

2 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 2 Welcome! Our time together today… CCSS Webinar series purpose and audiences Overview of the CCSS initiative Overview of major shifts in CCSS for English language arts and mathematics Transitional supports available Answer your questions and discuss next steps

3 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 3 Washingtons Vision for Education Every Washington public school student will graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21 st century.

4 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 4 What are the Common Core State Standards? Define knowledge and skills students should have within K-12 education careers so that they will graduate high school able to succeed in careers and college. The English language arts and mathematics standards: Align with college and work expectations; Are clear, understandable, consistent; Include rigorous content and application of knowledge; Build on strengths and lessons of current state standards; and Prepare all students for success in global economy and society. They do not: Dictate how teachers teach Dictate what instructional / curricular materials should be used

5 Common Core Standards OverviewAugust 2011| 5 State of the States Collective State Action on Education Reform Priorities

6 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 6 Why Common Core State Standards for Washington? C: Clarity. The standards are focused on whats most important. They are coherent and clear. C: Collaboration. States can pool resources and expertise to implement the standards. S: Student success. The standards are benchmarked to high national and international standards. Students will develop the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. S: Same. Expectations are the same for students across most states, so they dont lose ground when they move from one state to another.

7 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 7 Our Learning Goals are a strong foundation… 1. Read with comprehension, write effectively, and communicate successfully in a variety of ways and settings and with a variety of audiences; 2. Know and apply the core concepts and principles of mathematics; social, physical, and life sciences; civics and history, including different cultures and participation in representative government; geography; arts; and health and fitness; 3. Think analytically, logically, and creatively, and to integrate technology literacy and fluency as well as different experiences and knowledge to form reasoned judgments and solve problems; and 4. Understand the importance of work and finance and how performance, effort, and decisions directly affect future career and educational opportunities. (Updated in 2011: SSB 5392)

8 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 8 Our vision for the CCSS is two-fold… By , Every student has access to the standards through high quality instruction grounded in the instructional practices embedded within the CCSS every day. All English language arts and mathematics teachers are prepared and receive the support they need to bring the standards to life in their classrooms every day.

9 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 9 We believe this can only occur through… Collaboration Coordination Commitment From the school house to the state house…

10 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 10 DEVELOPMENT Draft K-12 English Language Arts and Mathematics Standards Released for State Input Summer 2009 WA INVOLVEMENT: Input on working drafts (CCSS Workgroup, 100+ educators) REVISIONS Public Review Revision Process Fall 2009 / Winter/Spring 2010 WA INVOLVEMENT: - Workgroup input - Statewide survey for input - Comments on Final Drafts ADOPTION States have discretion to voluntarily adopt CCSS Finalized June 2010 WA STATUS: Provisional Adoption - Statewide Outreach & Input - Jan Report to Leg. - June 2011 Bias and Sensitivity Review - July 2011 Formal Adoption TRANSITION AND IMPLEMENTATION State Collaboration and Sharing WA STATUS: - Phase-in support resources and structures starting in school year APPLICATION Aligned instructional materials and resources Aligned Assessment Systems Statewide assessment in Washingtons CCSS Involvement – Summer 2009 to Present For more details and resources visit Washingtons CCSS Web site:

17 Digging Deeper into the Standards…. Mathematics and English Language Arts

18 Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M)

19 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 19 Major Shifts within Mathematics CCSS Focus Coherence Application

20 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 20 Coherence Focus Fewer big ideas --- learn more Learning of concepts is emphasized That is, time is spent on a topic and on learning it well. This counters themile wide, inch deep criticism leveled at most current U.S. standards. Coherence Articulated progressions of topics and performances that are developmental and connected to other progressions Conceptual understanding and procedural skills stressed equally Application Being able to apply concepts and skills to new situations

21 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 21 Grade Priorities in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding K–2 Addition and subtraction, measurement using whole number quantities 3–5 Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions 6 Ratios and proportional reasoning; early expressions and equations 7 Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of rational numbers 8Linear algebra Critical Areas in Mathematics

22 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 22 Structure of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics

23 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 23 Structural Comparison: WA Standards vs. CCSS Mathematics (for full comparison informational handout go to: WA Mathematics StandardsCommon Core State Standards Presentation of Standards Grade K-8, high school standards presented in traditional and integrated pathways. Grades K-8, high school standards presented through six mathematical domains including specially noted STEM standards. Organization Grade-level standards are broken into core content areas, additional key content, and mathematical processes. Grade-level standards are broken into clusters of learning under several domains and all have Standards for Mathematical Practice. Examples Standards are accompanied by explanatory comments and examples. Standards have occasional examples in italics. The move toward career and college readiness… Standards for Mathematical Practice (Habits of Mind) denoted at each grade level CCSS include more advanced standards denoted by (+) symbols starting in high school High school course pathways

24 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 24 8 CCSSM Mathematical Practices Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning Standards for Mathematical Practice

25 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 25 High School Pathways The CCSSM Model Pathways are two models that organize the CCSSM into coherent, rigorous courses The CCSSM Model Pathways are NOT required. The two sequences are examples, not mandates Four years of mathematics: One course in each of the first three years Followed by options of courses for year four Course descriptions Define what is covered in a course Are not prescriptions for the curriculum or pedagogy

26 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 26 High School Pathways Pathway A: Consists of two algebra courses and a geometry course, with some data, probability and statistics infused throughout each (traditional) Pathway B: Typically seen internationally that consists of a sequence of 3 courses each of which treats aspects of algebra, geometry and data, probability, and statistics.

30 Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts

31 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 31 ELA/Literacy: 6 Major Shifts 1. Balance of literature and informational texts (K-5) 50% informational text by grade 4 Access the world – science, social studies, the arts, and literature – through text 2. Literacy as part of science and social studies/history; informational texts as part of ELA (6-12) More emphasis on informational text in ELA (55% by grade 8; 70% by grade 12) Emphasis on literary experiences in domain-specific text and instruction in science and history/social studies

32 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 32 ELA/Literacy: 6 Major Shifts 3. Appropriately complex text Staircase of complexity Each grade level, step of growth More time for close and careful reading Appropriate and necessary scaffolding and supports for students reading below grade level 4. Questions text-dependent Rich discussions dependent on common text Focus on connection to text Develop habits for making evidentiary arguments in discussion and writing

33 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 33 ELA/Literacy: 6 Major Shifts 5. Writing to inform or argue using evidence Narrative still an important role Emphasis on writing to inform and to make an argument Particular focus on written arguments that respond to ideas, events, facts, and arguments presented in texts 6. Academic vocabulary Vocabulary to access grade-level, complex texts Focus on pivotal, commonly found words, such as consequently, generation

34 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 34 ELA Major Shifts Strongest Messages Shift to higher-level thinking skills Increasing focus on Informational passages Not coverage, but depth and focus: RIGOR Writing about texts, citing sources

35 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 35 English Language Arts: Standards and Structure

36 Common Core State Standards Overview August 2011| 36 Structural Comparison: WA Standards vs. CCSS English Language Arts (for full comparison informational handout go to: WA Reading, Writing, and Communication Standards Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) Grades CoveredK-10K-12 Documents Three separate standards documents for reading, writing, and communication One document with four strands: reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. Integration A few standards embedded within the GLEs that address reading and writing in the content areas. Includes standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. WA has separate state educational technology standards for gradesK-12. Media and Technology are integrated throughout the standards. The move toward career and college readiness… CCSS add grades 11 and 12 Greater focus on increasing text complexity, argumentative writing, research skills from early grades WA strength at K-3 / student goal setting
