    What?

    When? Why?

    How?

  • Why is the Common Core State Standards Initiative important?

    • Disparate standards create confusing expectations across the states.

    • Global competitive edge is lagging among students in the U.S.

    • Workforce skills do not match 21st century workplace demands.

    Brad Bryant, State Superintendent of Schools “We will lead the nation in improving student achievement.” 4

  • Why are the Common Core State Standards for ELA right for Georgia?

    • Previous work with the GPS has prepared Georgia for the implementation of the CCGPS.

    • Prior teacher and administrator GPS training ensures a smooth transition.

    • Although some content may be in different grade levels in CCSS, nearly all of the ELA standards are addressed.

    • CCSS expectations are consistent with a single/high- rigor diploma requirement for all students.

    Brad Bryant, State Superintendent of Schools “We will lead the nation in improving student achievement.” 5

  • How is adoption defined?

    • 100% of the Common Core K-12 standards in ELA and mathematics must be adopted within 3 years.

    • States are allowed to add an additional 15% to the Common Core.

    • A state will have “adopted” when the authorizing body (Georgia’s State Board of Education) has taken formal action to adopt and implement the Common Core.

    • States have flexibility as to how they communicate adoption relative to state standards.

    Brad Bryant, State Superintendent of Schools “We will lead the nation in improving student achievement.” 6

  • The following boards passed resolutions in support of the adoption of the CCSS:

    • Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning

    • Governor’s Office of Student Achievement • Georgia Professional Standards Commission • Georgia Student Finance Commission • Technical College System of Georgia • University System of Georgia

  • Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies,

    Science, and Technical Subjects

    College and Career Readiness (CCR) Standards

     Overarching standards for each strand that are further defined by grade- specific standards

    Grade-Level Standards in English Language Arts (CCGPS)

     K-8, grade-by-grade

     9-10 and 11-12 grade bands for high school

     Four strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language

    Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects

     Standards are embedded at grades K-5

     Content-specific literacy standards are provided for grades 6-8, 9-10, and 11-12

  • An Integrated Model of Literacy

    Although the Standards are divided into Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language strands for conceptual clarity, the processes of communication are closely connected, as reflected throughout the document. For example, Writing standard 9 requires that students be able to write about what they read. Likewise, Speaking and Listening standard number 4 sets the expectation that students will share findings from their research. Media and technology are integrated throughout the model.

  • CCGPS Reading Strand

     Focuses on a progressive development of reading comprehension; students gain more from what they read

    CCGPS Reading Standard #1

    (Kindergarten- Lit.) With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

    (7th grade Lit.) Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
