common core state standards presentation
  • Westhoff elementary school

A Message from our state superintendent, Dr. Tom
Torlakson
  • California will provide a world-class education
    for all students, from early childhood to
    adulthood. The Department of Education serves our
    state by innovating and collaborating with
    educators, schools, parents, and community
    partners. Together, as a team, we prepare
    students to live, work, and thrive in a highly
    connected world.

3
Why Now?
  • Disparity of standards across states
  • Student mobility
  • Global competition
  • Todays jobs require different skills

Common Core State Standards
  • A state-led movement initiated through the
    National Governors Association and the Council of
    Chief State School Officers
  • The CCSS help define the knowledge and skills all
    students need to succeed in college and careers.
  • Expectations will be consistent for all students
    across the nation.

6
What are the benefits of the CCSS?
  • Internationally benchmarked
  • Student expectations are clear to parents,
    teachers, and the general public
  • Allows for collaboration with other states on
    best practices, instructional materials, and
    professional development
  • Reduces costs to the state

7
The Common Core State Standards
  • To date, forty-six states and the District of
    Columbia have adopted the Common Core State
    Standards (CCSS), a consistent set of English
    language arts (ELA) and mathematics expectations
    that students need to meet to succeed in college
    and careers
  • States have committed to implement the new
    standards by the 2014-15 school year
  • This is an aggressive timeline that will require
    a strategy that draws on state policymakers,
    district and school officials, and classroom
    teachers to ensure a successful and efficient
    implementation and transition

8
Three stages of Common Core
  • Awareness Understanding the Why
  • Getting into the standards and supporting
    documents
  • Understanding the shifts
  • Transition Curriculum Development
  • Curriculum Maps, Materials and Documents
  • Sample Lessons
  • Assessments
  • Instructional Methodology
  • Implementation
  • Practice and Refinement

9
The Structure of the CCSS English Language Arts
  • The standards are comprised of a set of Anchor
    Standards that are the same across K-12 and
    organized around four strands
  • Reading
  • Listening Speaking
  • Writing
  • Language

10
Sample ELA Anchor Standard for Reading
Kindergarten1. With prompting and support, the
student will ask and answer questions about key
details in a text.
11-12thGrade 1. Cite strong and thorough textual
evidence to support analysis of what the text
says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from
the text, including determining where the text
leaves matters uncertain.
11
6 Shifts in English language arts/literacy
  • 1. Balancing Informational Text and Literacy Text
  • 2. Knowledge in the Disciplines
  • 3. Staircase of Complexity
  • 4. Text-based Answers
  • 5. Writing from Sources
  • 6. Academic Vocabulary

12
Math shifts
  • 1. Focus
  • 2. Coherence
  • 3. Fluency
  • 4. Deep understanding
  • 5. Application
  • 6. Dual Intensity

13
21st Century Learning
  • 21st Century Skills will be the highly visible
    aspect of the change in the classroom
  • WVUSD focusing on the 5Cs
  • Critical Thinking

Weve already begun!
  • Kindergarten and First Grade began implementing
    the Common Core State Standards at every site in
    2012
  • Transitional Kindergarten has developed a report
    card that mirrors the CCSS.
  • Grades 9, 10, 11 English Language Arts teachers
    have new textbooks written to the CCSS.
  • Staff Development has taken place for teachers at
    all levels.

17
2013-2014 Implementation
  • This year
  • 2nd-12th grades have begun to implement the CCSS
    standards
  • Focus on instructional strategies using
  • 5 Cs (Communication, Critical Thinking,
    Creativity, Collaboration and Citizenship)
  • Depth of Knowledge (DOK)
  • Shifts in ELA and math
  • Integration of content areas in units

18
Westhoff moves forward. . .
  • .
  • K/1 teachers are in year two of CCSS
    implementation. Grades 2-12 have begun.
  • Common Core Teaching Strategies are linked to
    teachers professional growth plans.
  • Teachers attend Staff and professional
    development provided by our district office.
  • Staff Meeting time is allotted to CCSS.
  • Grade level Common Core days provided for cross
    vertical articulation.

19
Walnut Valley continues to provide in-depth
workshops and all grade levels have been
represented. Last summer grade levels (district
wide) participated in workshops developing
Common Core units of study. Technology has
doubled in past 2 years. Thanks in part to
Community Clubs support. We now have an iPad
cart for each grade level.
20
Teachers are providing opportunities for
students to utilize the 5 Cs Communication,
Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking
and Citizenship across the curriculum. Last
year Westhoff participated in a pilot SBAC
assessment in our third grade classes. Teachers
are Leading high level, text based
discussions. Focusing on process, not just
content Creating assignments for real
audiences and with real purpose Teaching
argument, not persuasion Increasing text
complexity
21
Smarter Balanced Assessment consortium (SBAC)
  • SBAC will replace STAR/CST testing except in
    fifth, seventh and eleventh grade Science.
  • California schools will field test the SBAC this
    year.
  • Students in grade 3 11 will participate in
    SBAC.
  • Testing of the test will allow experts to
    discern the accuracy and reliability of test
    questions before finalizing the assessment.
  • No results will be reported this year.

22
Summary
  • The Common Core State Standards are about
    transforming our educational system by
  • preparing students with knowledge and skills to
    succeeding college and career
  • ensuring consistent expectations for students
    across the country
  • providing educators, parent and students with
    clear, focused guideposts
  • encouraging a shift in thinkinga new way to
    approach teaching
