Title: The New Common Core Aligned AKS


1
The New Common Core Aligned AKS
  • 2012-2013

2
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
  • A state led initiative
  • National Governors Association (NGA)
  • Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
  • National unveiling on June 2, 2010 at Peachtree
    Ridge HS

3
Current Adoption
4
Features of the Standards
  • College and career readiness
  • Focused and coherent
  • Include rigorous content and application of
    knowledge through high-order skills
  • Based on evidence and research
  • Internationally benchmarked

5
Georgias Adoption
  • Current Georgia Performance Standards for both
    math and language arts rated highly when compared
    to the CCSS. The GPS math curriculum has been
    determined to be 90 aligned to the CCSS.
  • Though states have been given flexibility to add
    15 to the CCSS, Georgia has chosen to adopt the
    math standards without addition.
  • In Language Arts, Georgia selected a handful of
    indicators to retain in addition to the CCSS.

6
GCPS and the development of Common Core aligned
AKS
  • Two primary goals in developing AKS that align
    with new CCSS
  • To verify that the curriculum that we teach is
    aligned to the curriculum and assessments used
    for comparison and accountability.
  • To position our teachers to take full advantage
    of the opportunity to engage in effective
    collaboration and access resources at the
    national level.

AKS Alignment to Common Core

Math The nature of the standards
Specificity Current Grade 3 Solve problems
requiring the four operations. CC Solve and
represent two-step word problems using the four
operations, and represent with a letter standing
for the unknown quantity. This standard is
limited to problems posed with whole numbers and
having whole-number answers students should know
how to perform operations in the conventional
order when there are no parentheses to specify a
particular order (Order of Operations). Current
Model and explain that the fraction a/b
represents equal-sized parts of a whole that is
divided into b equal sized parts. CC Add
Grade 3 expectations for fractions are limited
to fractions with denominators 2, 3, 4, 6, and
8.
9
Math The nature of the standards
  • Conceptual Understanding
  • Grade 4 - Explain a multiplication equation as a
    comparison and represent verbal statements of
    multiplicative comparisons as multiplication
    equations.
  • Grade 8 - Compare two different proportional
    relationships represented as verbal, tabular,
    graphic and algebraic representations of
    functions.

Math Framework
MATH
11
Design and Organization
  • Standards for Mathematical Practice
  • Carry across all grade levels
  • Describe the habits of mind of a mathematically
    expert student
  • Standards for Mathematical Content
  • K-8 standards presented by grade level
  • High school standards presented by conceptual
    theme

12
Standards for Mathematical Practice
Mathematically Proficient Students
  • 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in
    solving them
  • start by explaining to themselves the meaning
    of a problem and looking for entry points to its
    solution
  • 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • make sense of quantities and their
    relationships to problem situation
  • 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the
    reasoning of others
  • understand and use stated assumptions,
    definitions, and previously established results
    in constructing arguments
  • 4. Model with mathematics
  • can apply the mathematics they know to solve
    problems arising in everyday life, society, and
    the workplace

13
Standards for Mathematical Practice
Mathematically Proficient Students
  • 5. Use appropriate tools strategically
  • consider the available tools when solving a
    mathematical problem
  • 6. Attend to precision
  • calculate accurately and efficiently
  • 7. Look for and make use of structure
  • look closely to discern a pattern or structure
  • 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated
    reasoning
  • notice if calculations are repeated, and look
    for both general methods and for shortcuts

31
Common Core
  • Developing Awareness and Building Confidence in
    Language Arts

32
RIGOR
  • Goes deeper than current standards
  • Intent of the standards- fewer in number, with
    fewer (mentor) texts, but deeper analysis
  • More critical reading/writing skills
  • Comparing multiple texts
  • Analyzing longer texts
  • Short texts vs. extended texts
  • Higher expectations for all students
  • Apply, compare, contrast, demonstrate, cite,
    produce, evaluate
  • Noticeable absence of identify
  • Project-based learning

33
RELEVANCE
  • Heavier focus on informational text- more of what
    our students need
  • Performance-based tasks and assessments
  • Innovative uses of technology (Q
    strategy)
  • Distinction between short- and long-term research
  • What skills do our students need to be
    college/career ready?

34
READING
Instructional and Assessment Guidelines
WRITING
(Excerpted from CCSS, p. 5)
35
  • Vertical alignment is clearly evident we will
    have a document similar to the CC document that
    illustrates this alignment.
  • Standards aligned to 21st century skill needs
  • Reading
  • Range of reading and level of text complexity
  • Writing
  • Opinion and informational writing narrative
    writing as a genre, but no longer a focus

refining skills with increasingly more complex

Cant Do Without Websites
  • Go to www.corestandards.org for more information
    and related resources (standards documents, unit
    frameworks, charts, and skills progressions).
  • In addition to the standards themselves, be sure
    to peruse the appendices.
  • Click on the resources tab to download several
    relevant documents (e.g., Myth vs. Fact FAQ)
  • Go to www.parcconline.org for information on the
    assessments currently under development.

Staff Development
41
  • Assessment- aligned to CCGPS
  • Field testing of new items in SY 2011-12 and SY
    2012-13
  • Longer, more complex texts comparing multiple
    texts
  • Reading/LA will be combined into one test
  • Writing will be embedded in tests will get
    separate writing score for each student
  • Formative item bank will be available through OAS
  • Vast majority of items will be performance-based
  • Coming in Fall 2012 (tentative)
  • Sample items are being developed.
  • Digital resources will be made available as part
    of eCLASS.
  • Need for high-quality, print-based media will
    remain a constant.
