21st Century Skills and the 4c’s
are infused in the Common Core Standards
which are the end goals of the
Career and College Ready Standards
Career and College Ready
Standard examples:

Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to
make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence
when reading or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the
text.

Prepare and participate effectively in a range of conversations
and collaborations with diverse partners building on others’ ideas
and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
Look for evidence of the 4C’s and discuss them with a partner.
We will fully implement the Common
Core State Standards in 2014-2015
We will take the new national test with
Common Core Standards in
Spring of 2015
• Council of Chief State School
Officers and National
Governors Association Center
for Best Practices, teachers,
school administrators, and
experts worked together to
provide a clear and consistent
framework to prepare
students for college and
workforce.
• Standards adopted by most
states.
• Currently each state has its
own set of standards; student
expectations vary from state
to state.
Where did the
Common Core
standards come
from?
States could add up to 15% to the
Common Core
• California added standards to the Common
Core to address perceived gaps and to
ensure that the rigor of California’s existing
standards would be maintained.
How will the
Common Core Standards
be different?
• Includes rigorous content and application of
knowledge through higher-order thinking skills
• Performance-based collaborative activities and
assessments
• Integrated literacy across content areas
including Science and Social Studies
• Stronger emphasis on informational text,
research and media skills
Shifts in ELA Common
Core Standards:
Staircase of complexity design, the standards build
upon each other
 A combination of literary and informational texts
 Integration of Social Science and Science content
knowledge
 3 types of writing: Informative/Explanatory, Narrative,
and Opinion/Persuasive taught K-12
 Emphasis on academic vocabulary

New Common Core Assessments
Who is creating them?
SMARTER-Balanced Assessment Consortium
Who else is using these tests?
Currently 29 states
What is the purpose?
To develop a comprehensive and innovative assessment
system for grades 3-8 and grade 11 in English Language Arts
and Mathematics aligned to the Common Core Standards
so that students leave high school prepared for post
secondary success in college or a career.
What will happen to CSTs?
These tests will replace CST, CMA, and STS. We will take
the last STAR assessments in the spring of 2014.
How will the National Assessments
be different than the STAR?

You have a copy of the 5 tasks for this assessment on your table. In your
group divide up the tasks and individually or with a partner complete one
task. When you are finished find someone from another group who had
the same task and compare how you solved the problem. When you
return to your seat you will receive a copy of the scoring rubrics so you
can see how well you performed on this task.

Check for Understanding
With your team determine which object in the jar
represents one of the 4C’s.
Performance-Based Assessment
 Knowing
the important role the 4C’s will
play in 21st Century Learning how can you
apply them in your daily instruction now?
Share your thinking with your table group and
collaborate on how you can purposefully
including these important skills in your teaching.
The Common Core Standards are an
opportunity to transform how we teach
our students to prepare them for the
21st Century
How will you begin the change?
