6 The major goal of the CCSS is to guarantee that all students are college and career ready as they exit from high school. 6 Goals for TK-12 CCSS

7 Ensure that our students are:  Meeting college and work expectations  Prepared to succeed in our global economy and society, and  Provided with rigorous content and applications of higher knowledge through higher order thinking skills. 7

8 What are the Benefits of the CCSS?  Internationally benchmarked  Student expectations are clear to parents, teachers, and the general public  Allows for collaboration with other states on best practices, instructional materials, and professional development  Reduces costs to the state 8

9 Students with Special Needs  The CCSS provide an historic opportunity to improve access to rigorous academic content standards for students with disabilities and for the gifted.  Many experts in this area were involved in the development of these standards to meet IEP needs. 9

10 English Learners The CCSS articulate rigorous grade level expectations to prepare all students to be college and career ready, including English learners. 10

11 English Learners The development of the ELA CCSS involved linguists and EL experts. And they had a huge impact on the language and vocabulary standards The developers of the CCSS were the developers of ELD standards for the CCSS. 11

12 ELD Key Features Handout  A set of ELD standards for each grade level, Kindergarten through grade 8, and for the high school grade spans 9-10 and 11-12  Correspondence to CCSS ELA standards noted for each ELD standard 12

13 ELD Key Features Handout  Three English language proficiency levels: Emerging, Expanding, and Bridging;  Standards organized into three language modes: collaborative, interpretative and productive, and three categories under the heading learning about how English works: structuring cohesive texts, expanding and enriching ideas, and connecting and condensing ideas. 13

14 Change in Teaching and Learning  From predominantly teacher-directed instruction and teacher-talk  student engagement, interaction, inquiry-based pedagogy  From each teacher responsible for isolated content  every teacher a language teacher  From ELD as just a separate curriculum/part of the day  ELD as dedicated curriculum + infusion of ELD standards across the curriculum
