Mission Statement: The CCSS provide a consistent, clear
understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers
and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards
are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the
knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in
college and careers. (www.corestandards.org)

Today’s Learning Targets:
· To develop common language and shared
understanding of the Common Core State
Standard (CCSS) documents.
· To learn to navigate the CCSS template
(disaggregating, or unpacking tool).
Mission:
Building a community of
lifelong learners, one student
at a time.

Four critical questions will drive our work in order to ensure that all students learn at high levels:
1.
2.
3.
4.
What do we want students to learn?
How will we know if our students are learning?
How will we respond when students do not learn?
How will we enrich and extend the learning for students who are proficient?

Choose a standard.
Write it in the template box.
Write the anchor standard that grounds it.
Write the correlating standard for the grade level
below and above.
5. Discuss the relevance and application of this
standard to real life.
6. Tables signal when finished. Prizes for efficiency.
Highlight verbs and “big nouns” or concepts in the standard.
KNOW and UNDERSTAND: Determine the amount of
cognitive load placed on the learner. (You might craft some
simple learning targets here.) Use resources to help…Webb
leveling and Bloom’s Taxonomy.
DO: How might a student demonstrate knowledge or
understanding for this target? Write ideas or craft simple
criteria for success statements.
Identify any key vocabulary that supports this standard.
Application and Synthesis
How might I teach this standard?
What instructional strategies would support student
learning in this area?
What resources do I have available to help me with
lesson planning?
When will I teach this standard?
How will I calibrate my lessons and assessments
to my teammates and district grade level?

• “I can lead in my classroom by taking the standards from
paper to practice.”
• “I can lead in my grade level team by exploring, discussing, and
creating in a collaborative way.”
• “I can lead in my school by sharing ideas and supporting my
principal’s efforts in moving our school forward toward full
implementation of the CCSS.”
• “I can lead in our school district by working with cross-district
teams, communicating with my literacy leader, and sharing
ideas.
1. A Greater Pool of Resources
“When yesterday you might have shared your lesson across
the hall, under the CCSS you’ll be able to share lessons
with teachers across the country” (Kendall, 2011).
2. Increased Collegiality
“A shared language is the essential first step for
communication” (DuFour & Eaker, 1998; Kohm & Nance, 2009).
The Common Core will provide great opportunity for an
unprecedented level of discourse.
3. Increased Professionalism
One hallmark of a profession is mastery of a body of
knowledge.
In education, the greater the challenge is for students,
the more crucial it is that teachers have both a mastery of
content and an understanding of teaching and learning.
