1 Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards SUPERINTENDENT Jackie Pons

2 Purpose of the adoption of Common Core State Standards: To ensure ALL students are college and career ready when they leave our K-12 system To propel change in instructional practices in order to improve student performance We have Promises to Keep!

3 CCSS ARE… State-led initiative Voluntary in adoption with ability to add additional standards Intended to ensure all students are college and career ready Provide a clear, consistent statewide understanding of what students should know and be able to do

4 What is different about the Common Core State Standards? English Language ArtsMathematics

5 English Language Arts Standards Organized in a K-12 structure Outlines three types of writing, beginning in Kindergarten Addition of writing with argumentation K-12 emphasis on informational and complex text Deep integration of reading and writing

6 ELA (cont.) Greater emphasis on digital reading, writing, multi-media production Greater attention to comprehension Pervasive demand for higher-order thinking and production Specific standards for speaking and listening Standards for literacy in science, social studies, and instructional technology

7 Mathematics Standards Provides a framework for more robust mathematics instruction deepening content in a progressive manner Provides clearly defined performance standards of what students should know and be able to do Demands deeper knowledge of mathematics content and instruction for elementary teachers Integrates concepts of algebra, geometry and statistics into secondary coursework to provide relevant application Aligns with international approaches to mathematics enabling our students to compete in a global economy

8 What does this mean for teachers? Analysis, evaluation, critical thinking embedded in all instruction Strategies on reading informational text taught interdisciplinary Increased knowledge of mathematical properties Application of what students learn to real world Emphasis on performance instead of just knowing content

9 Floridas Common Core State Standards Implementation Timeline 9 Year/Grade Level K FLLLLL F L LLL CCSS fully implemented F L B L CCSS fully implemented and assessed F L F - full implementation of CCSS for all content areas L – begin full implementation of content area literacy standards including: (1) text complexity, quality and range in all grades (K-12), and (2) CCSS Literacy Standards in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (6-12) B - blended instruction of CCSS with Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS); last year of NGSSS assessed on FCAT 2.0

10 Year/Grade Level FCAT 2.0 = NGSSS Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC, Biology EOC = NGSSS FCAT 2.0 = NGSSS Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC, Biology EOC, US History EOC = NGSSS FCAT 2.0 = NGSSS Civics EOC = NGSSS FCAT 2.0 = NGSSS Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC, Biology EOC, US History EOC = NGSSS PARCC = CCSS (M+ELA) FCAT 2.0 = Science Civics EOC = NGSSS PARCC = CCSS (ELA) Algebra 1 EOC, Geometry EOC = CCSS Biology EOC, US History EOC = NGSSS What Standards Will Be Assessed? 10 M = Mathematics ELA = English Language Arts and Reading
