Title: Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSI) Oakland


1
Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSI) Oakland
2
Welcome
  • Todays purpose
  • Provide background information
  • On the Common Core Standards (CCS)
  • On the Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSI)
  • Provide an opportunity for you to discuss,
    consider implications of and reflect on CCSI
    Oakland

3
Lets Start with a Connector
  • Turn to a couple of people sitting near you and
    share what you already know about the Common Core
    Standards

4
Common Core Standards
  • Governors and state superintendents led the
    development of common core standards for grades
    K-12 in ELA and mathematics
  • Standards focus on learning expectations for
    students, not on how students get there

5
Common Care Standards
  • Why Now?
  • Disparate standards across states
  • Student mobility
  • Global competition
  • Todays jobs require different skills

6
Common Core Standards
  • Why is this important?
  • Prepares students with knowledge and skills
    needed for success in college and work
  • Ensures consistent expectations regardless of
    students zip code
  • Provides educators, parents and students with
    clear, focused guideposts

7
Common Core Standards
  • What momentum is there for the initiative?
  • 47 states
  • All but Alaska, Minnesota, Texas, the District of
    Columbia and two territories, have signed on to
    the process
  • 35 states, including Michigan, have or are
    expected to adopt the Common Core Standards
    between June and August , 2010

8
Common Core Standards
  • Development Process
  • Career and college readiness standards developed
    in the summer of 2009 by national experts
  • K-12 learning progressions were then developed to
    reach these standards, again by national experts
  • Multiple rounds of feedback from states,
    associations, teachers and the public received
    before the June, 2010 completion

9
Common Core Standards
  • Criteria for the K-12 standards
  • Fewer, clearer and higher
  • Aligned with college and work expectations
  • Include rigorous content and application of
    knowledge through high-order skills
  • Build upon strengths and lessons learned from
    current state standards
  • Internationally benchmarked
  • Based on evidence and research

10
Common Core Standards
  • English Language Arts Standards
  • Include standards for Reading Literature, Reading
    Informational Text, Writing, Speaking and
    Listening for ELA classes
  • Include separate Standards for Literacy in
    History/Social Studies and Science classes for
    grades 6-12
  • Strong emphasis on deep comprehension of rich
    literature and content area expository text

11
Common Core Standards
  • Mathematics Standards
  • Students in K-5 develop a solid foundation in
    basic conceptual understandings and procedures
  • In the middle grades, students build on this
    foundation through hands on learning in geometry,
    algebra, probability and statistics
  • High school students apply mathematical ways of
    thinking to real world challenges emphasizing
    mathematical modeling

12
Common Core Standards
  • Next steps
  • The first draft of College and Career Ready
    Standards for Science have been developed
  • State assessments will be changed to reflect the
    CCS
  • Two assessment consortiums are developing
    multi-state assessments based on the CCS
  • Fall, 2014 is the current target date for use of
    the new assessments

13
Common Core Standards
  • What do the experts say?
  • Linda Darling-Hammond, Ph.D. Stanford University
    Professor and nationally known researcher
  • http//www.edutopia.org/international-teaching-lea
    rning-assessment-video

14
Common Core Standards
  • Standards are essential but inadequate by
    themselves
  • To be successful, educators also need
  • Curriculum, including units of study, based on
    the standards
  • Instructional materials that align with the
    standards
  • A variety of assessments to measure student
    progress
  • Resources, tools and time to adjust classroom
    practices

15
Common Core Standards Initiative Oakland
  • The Common Core Standards Initiative (CCSI)
    Oakland will help educators get the rest of what
    they need to succeed
  • Curriculum and units of study
  • Instructional materials
  • Assessments
  • Resources

16
CCSI Oakland
  • Purpose of the Initiative
  • Put the Common Core Standards into an easy to
    use, unit based curriculum and teaching framework
  • Enable teachers to assess students understanding
    of the standards

17
CCSI Oakland
  • Benefits of the initiative include
  • Increasing teacher collaboration through
    co-construction and electronic sharing of lesson
    plans and instructional strategies
  • Saving districts the time and money associated
    with designing their own curriculum and
    assessments
  • Promoting a focus on high quality classroom
    instruction aligned to a coherent curriculum

18
CCSI Oakland
  • Turn to a couple of people near you and talk
    about what you think might be benefits of this
    new initiative
  • Share a thought from your group

19
CCSI Oakland
  • To get a better idea of what this initiative
    entails, lets look at a copy of the 3 year Gantt
    chart
  • Across the top, you will see a three year time
    line from May, 2010 through June, 2013
  • Down the side you will see a list of tasks to be
    accomplished during this time
  • The gray boxes indicate the work period for each
    task involved

20
CCSI Oakland
  • What products will the initiative produce?
  • Early deliverables
  • A cross walk between the current and new
    standards
  • A consistent framework for unit design
  • A model for student assessment
