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)

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

Intended Goals for Mathematics CCSS

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



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
