  • Common Core State Standards

    Site Staff MeetingSite Staff Meeting

  • A Brief Background..

    2009 – Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) & the National Governors Association Center (NGA Center) for Best Practices commit to develop a set of standards that would prepare students for success in college and career.

    May 2009 – California’s SBE, SSPI, and Governor agree to participate in the Common Core State Standards as part of the Race To The Top application.

    July 2009 - AB X4 2 suspends the process & procedure for adopting instructional materials and frameworks until 2013- 2014.

    September, 2009 – Release of draft College & Career Readiness Standards, the foundation for CCSS.

  • Continued….

    January 2010 – SB X5 1 amends Ed. Code to provide for the adoption of the CCSS, including Academic Content Standards Commission. CCSS can not be changed but supplemental standards can be added (15%)

    March/Spring 2010 – Release of draft CCSS and California signed MOU w/ PARCC

    August 2010 – SBE adopts the Common Core State Standards, including California specific standards (Common Core Content Standards or CCCS). SBE directs CDE staff to develop a plan and timeline for implementation of the standards.

    March 2011 - SB 70 extends the suspension requirements to adopt new, standards-aligned instructional materials until 2015-2016 school year.”

    June 2011 – California switched from PARCC to SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC). The SBAC focus is on assessing students annually in grades three through eight in English-language arts and mathematics and once in grades ten through twelve under current federal requirements.

  • Materials Implementation…

    Don’t forget…new science standards (based on “Next Generation Science

    Standards”) will be recommended to SBE by March 2013 & adopted by July 2013

  • Moving to the Common Core System

  • “Bridge” Materials – SB 140…

  • Highlights of Standards…

    �Common Core Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects are organized around the College & Career Readiness (CCR) Standards for reading, writing, speaking & listening, and language.

    �Two Sections---> one for Language Arts and one for literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects

  • Organization of the Standards – ELA…

    4 Strands

    2010 Common Core

    Reading (includes



    Writing Writing

    Written and Oral

    Language Conventions

    Language (includes


    Listening and Speaking Speaking and Listening

    4 Domains

    1997 CA Standards

  • California added….

    • Formal presentations (grades 1-12)

    • Penmanship (grades 2-4)

    • Analysis of text features informational text (grades 6-12)

    • Career and consumer documents (grade 8)

  • Balance…

    Distribution of literary and informational passages:

    Grade Literary Informational

    4 50% 50%

    8 45% 55%

    12 30% 70%

  • Focus on…

    Reading - Text Complexity and Informational Text - College & Career Readiness

    Writing – “The Common Core Standards require students to show that they can analyze and synthesize sources and present careful analysis, well defended claims and clear information.” “…the writing standards…require students to draw evidence from a text or texts to support analysis, reflection or research.”

  • Emphasis on… Critical Analysis/Use of Evidence • Develop claim(s) and counterclaim(s) fairly and thoroughly, supplying the

    most relevant evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases. (11-12.W.1.b)

    Focus on Text Complexity-Increased Student Collaboration

    • Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grades 9- 10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. (9-10.SL.1)

    Vocabulary Acquisition and Use • Determine the meaning of word and phrase as they are used in the text,

    including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone). (9- 10.RL.4)

    Increased Use of Multimedia and Technology • Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual,

    and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest. (11-12.SL.5)

  • The big discussion item in ELA….

    College and Career Readiness standards were not adopted in the CCCS.

    The absence of these standards makes California differ from other states and could cause some confusion with the CCSS.

  • High School Math… The CCSS high school standards are organized in 6 conceptual categories:

    •Number and Quantity •Algebra

    •Functions •Modeling (*)

    •Geometry •Statistics and Probability

    California additions: stand alone courses •Advanced Placement Probability and Statistics


    Modeling standards are indicated by a (*) symbol. They link classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making.

  • The High School Mathematics Standards:

    � Students applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges

    • Developing a depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics to novel situations, as college students and employees are requested to do

    • Emphasizing mathematical modeling

    • Preparing students to be college and career ready

  • Pathway A Pathway B

    Traditional in U.S. International Integrated Approach

    Model Course Pathways for Mathematics

    Algebra II


    Algebra I

    Mathematics III

    Mathematics II

    Mathematics I

    Courses in higher level mathematics: Precalculus, Calculus (upon completion of

    Precalculus), Advanced Statistics, Discrete Mathematics, Advanced Quantitative

    Reasoning, or other courses to be designed at a later date, such as additional career

    technical courses.

  • The big discussion item in math….

    8th Grade Math –

    The adoption of a duel sets of standards

    �Currently it has 51 standards compared to the old number of 25.

    �These 51 standards will not be assessed by SMARTER Balanced.

    �ESEA requires one set of standards at each grade level.

  • SMARTER Balanced Time Line

  • Governor sent letter to SMARTER Balanced…

    I am agreeing in principal to execute the Memorandum Of Understanding for California being a governing state…. However, due to the current economic climate and budget restraints we face in California, I cannot at this time commit to any new assessment system in the 2014-2015 school year. A state as large as California with 6 million students and 300,000 teachers, investing in the necessary technology infrastructure and instructional materials and professional development can potentially cost the state billions of dollars. This is a tremendous price that would have to be incurred in a short amount of time.

  • More on the assessment…

    • California additions to the CCSS will not be assessed. (15% of standards)

    • SMARTER Balanced assessments will be administered to 11th grade students only and in the content areas of ELA & math

    • Optional formative assessments

    • Computer adaptive assessments

  • Summative Assessment…

    • Selected response

    • Short constructed response

    • Extended constructed response
