Common Core California Standards (CCCS) Contra Costa County Curriculum Council October, 2010 1 Presentation Outline 2 CCSS Overview Understanding the Current Backdrop Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Standards in Mathematics Foreshadowing Things to Come the same for everyone 3 fundamental knowledge needed to be college & career ready adopted statewide; not federal Shared, rigorous academic content with clear expectations for students CCSS Development Timeline Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative (‘09) – – CCSS in California (Jan. ‘10) – SB X5 1 required creation of ACSC to “ensure that the rigor” of CA’s standards are maintained by the CCSS, and recommend whether CCSS should be adopted Adoption Recommended with Some Additions – 85% rule (July ‘10) – 48 states voluntarily joined the initiative sponsored by CCSSO and NGA States committed to (1) participate in the development of CCSS and (2) deliberate on the possible state adoption CA incorporates some new words, phrases and a few CA standards SBE Unanimously Adopts ACSC’s Recommendation (August ‘10) – CCCS adopted by CA on 8/2/10 – the last day to remain a viable contender for the 2nd round of RTTT funds Multiple drafts of the CCSS were reviewed and vetted by tens of thousands (including teacher unions, professional math and English language arts organizations at both the K-12 and post-secondary levels) 4 One or Two Sets of Standards? Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Common Core California Standards (CCCS) Which standards are more important to us? 5 Sections of the CCSS June 2, 2010 English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects – – – – Mathematics – – 6 THE ELA & LITERACY STANDARDS Appendix A: Research Supporting Key Elements Appendix B: Text Exemplars and Sample Performance Tasks Appendix C: Samples of Student Writing THE MATHEMATICS STANDARDS Appendix A: Designing High School Math Course Based on CCSS Sections on applications for English Learners and Students with Disabilities were also included in this draft. CCSS Characteristics Alignment with college and work expectations – Rigorous content Application of higher-order thinking skills International benchmarking – 7 Knowledge and skills needed for success after high school Informed by curriculum and assessments from topperforming countries to insure success in our global economy (e.g., NAEP) Evidence and/or research-based. Understanding the Current Backdrop Transitioning to New Standards 8 CA’s Textbook Adoption Timeline Math – – – Framework, Jan. 2012 Materials Adoption, Aug. 2014 Materials Available, Dec. 2014 ELA – Will follow the math timeline by 2 years Current text materials will be in use until these dates! 9 Timeline for Assessment Development STAR sunsets in 2012-13 New Common Core Assessments projected to – – be piloted in 2013-14 “go live” in 2014-15 CA has joined the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College & Careers (PARCC) – – With a new Governor and SPI, CA could change their consortium membership For more information on each assessment consortium: 10 PARCC: http://www.achieve.org/files/CCSS&Assessments.pdf Smarter Balanced Assessment: http://www.k12.wa.us/smarter/ Outline of Next Steps State Board of Education Meeting in Nov 2010 or Jan 2011 – CA Department of Education will present a plan for next steps in 11 Framework and textbook adoption Assessment Professional development English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects Content and Design 12 Organization of ELA Standards Three Main Sections – – – 13 English Language Arts (Grades K-5) English Language Arts (Grades 6-12) Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (Grades 6-12) Four Strands in Each Section 14 Reading Writing Speaking and Listening Language Comparison of CA and CCCS 15 Current CA ELA Domains CCCS Strands Reading Reading Writing Writing Listening and Speaking Speaking and Listening Written and Oral Language Conventions Language ELA Anchored by CCR Standards See Handout 16 See Handout Reading Strand Reading Standards for Literature Key Ideas and Details Craft and Structure Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Range and Level of Text Complexity Reading Standards for Informational Text Key Ideas and Details Craft and Structure Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Range and Level of Text Complexity Reading Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5) Print Concepts Phonological Awareness Phonics and Word Recognition Fluency Writing Strand Writing Standards Text Types and Purposes Production and Distribution of Writing Research to Build and Present Knowledge Range of Writing Speaking & Listening Strand Speaking and Listening Standards Comprehension and Collaboration Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas K-12 ELA only Language Strand 17 K-12 ELA only Language Standards Conventions of Standard English Knowledge of Language Vocabulary Acquisition and Use READING Alignment with NAEP Distribution of Literary and Informational Passages by Grade in the 2009 NAEP Reading Framework 18 Grade Literary Informational 4th 50% 50% 8th 45% 55% 12th 30% 70% Note: This does not mean that 70% of 12th grade English should be informational texts, but that a great deal of reading should also occur in other disciplines. WRITING Alignment with NAEP Distribution of Communicative Purposes by Grade in the 2011 NAEP Writing Framework 19 Convey Experience Grade 4th Persuade 30% Explain 35% 8th 35% 35% 30% 12th 40% 40% 20% 35% Based on ACSA Powerpoint* Key Advances Reading – – Writing – – – – Inclusion of formal and informal talk Language – 20 Emphasis on argument and informative/explanatory writing Writing about sources Multi-media skills are blended throughout the standards Making arguments and drawing evidence from sources Speaking and Listening – Balance of literature and informational texts Text complexity (see 2-pages in handouts) Stress on general academic and subject-specific vocabulary with an appendix that offers a selection of student writing samples with annotations. Based on ACSA Powerpoint* What did CCSS add to Current CA ELA 21 Vocabulary Standards Standards for “collaborative discussions” Formal presentations (Grades 1-12) Penmanship (Grades 2-4) Career and consumer documents for writing (Grade 8) Analysis of text features in informational text (Grades 6-12) See Handout on Last Page Toggle Your Perspective - ELA 22 What possibilities do the new CCSS in ELA offer? What challenges do they present? Mathematics Content and Design 23 In the Introduction of the Math CCSS Mathematics experience in early childhood should concentrate on (1) number (which includes whole number, operations, and relations) and (2) geometry, spatial relations, and measurement, with more mathematics learning time devoted to number than to other topics. Mathematical process goals should be integrated in these content areas. - National Research Council, 2009 24 Intended Goals for Mathematics CCSS 25 Aim for clarity and specificity Stress conceptual understanding of key ideas Balance mathematics understanding and procedural skill Internationally benchmarked Design and Organization of Math CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice – – Standards for Mathematical Content – – – – 26 Carry across all grade levels Describe mathematical habits of mind that should be taught explicitly to all students K-8 standards are presented by grade level Organized into domains that progress over several grades Grade introductions give 2-4 focal points at each grade level High school standards presented by conceptual theme Standards for Mathematical Practice 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 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 These practices are cross cutting and listed on the same pages as the content standards 27 K-5 Mathematics Content Domains 28 Domains Grade Level Counting and Cardinality K only Operations and Algebraic Thinking 1-5 Number and Operations in Base Ten 1-5 Number and Operations -- Fractions 3-5 Measurement and Data 1-5 Geometry 1-5 Example of a Mathematics Content Standard 29 Middle Grade Mathematics Content Domains Domains 30 Grade Level Ratio and Proportional Relationships 6-7 The Number System 6-8 Expressions and Equations 6-8 Functions 8 Geometry 6-8 Statistics and Probability 6-8 Algebra I and the Grade 8 CCSS Goal: all students take Algebra I in the 8th grade But not all have the prerequisite skills for Algebra I There are two sets of standards at Grade 8 that prepare students for college and career – – 31 Standards for Algebra I: Taken from the 8th Grade Common Core and the high school Algebra cluster Standards for 8th Grade: 8th Grade CCSS CA standards (CCCS) in grades K-7 were augmented to prepare students for either set of standards in Grade 8 High School Math Conceptual Themes High schools standards are grouped by conceptual themes (not by grade level or course title). The themes are – – – – – – Number and quantity Algebra Functions Modeling Geometry Probability and Statistics (*) Standards that incorporate modeling (+) Standards that are necessary to prepare for advanced courses 32 Based on ACSA Powerpoint* Key Advances in Math CCSS Focus and Coherence – Focus on key topics at each grade level – Foster reasoning and sense-making in mathematics College and career readiness – 33 Content standards require both conceptual understanding and procedural fluency (i.e., mastery) Mathematical Practices – Coherent progressions across grade levels Balance of Concepts and Skills – Numeracy Geometry Fractions Level is ambitious but achievable CCCS Math Standards More similarities than differences (K-12) Adds two current California courses – – 34 Calculus Advanced Statistics and Probability High school course descriptions to be developed by CDE as part of their long-range implementation plan See Handout on Last Page Toggle Your Perspective - ELA 35 What possibilities do the new CCSS in ELA offer?
