  1. Understanding the Common Core State Standards and Literacy Standards

  2. The Common Core State Standards Initiative • In 2009, the following collaborated to develop a common core of K-12 English language arts (ELA) and mathematics standards: • 46 states • 2 territories • District of Columbia • The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a state-led effort coordinated by two groups: • National Governors Association (NGA) • Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO). • Indiana’s State Board Education adopted these standards on August 3, 2010 • Indiana adopted in 2010

  3. Why Common Core State Standards? • Preparation: The standards prepare students to be college- and career-ready upon completion of high school. • Competition: The standards are internationally benchmarked to help ensure our students are globally competitive. • Equity: Expectations are consistent for all – and not dependent on a student’s zip code. • Clarity: The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Clearer standards help students (and parents and teachers) understand what is expected of them. • Collaboration: The standards permit unprecedented opportunities for collaboration across states and districts. More than ever, educators may: • Pool resources and expertise • Create curricular tools • Develop professional development • Administer common assessments • Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)

  4. Anticipated Assessment of Common Core State Standards • 2014-2015 • We anticipate a multi-state test on the Common Core State Standards developed through a consortium of states, including the assessment of informational text relating to history/social studies, science, and technical subjects including: • CTE (Agriculture Education, Business, Marketing and Information Technology, Engineering and Technology Education, Family and Consumer Sciences, Trade and Industrial Education) • Fine Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts) • Physical and Health Education • These tests will contain: • Through-course assessments involving the reading of different types of texts (narrative, informational) and engaging in specific writing tasks utilizing the provided texts • End-of-Year assessments including multiple choice and innovative, technology-enhanced items • Additional information regarding the Common Core Assessments can be found at: • http://www.doe.in.gov/achievement/curriculum/resources-implementing-common-core-state-standards

  5. Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects

  6. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Purpose for Literacy Standards in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • As we look to prepare our students for college or careers, it becomes every teacher’s responsibility to support and instruct students in reading informational text within each content area.

  7. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • 3 reasons for difficulty: • The jargon of science texts is essentially unfamiliar. • Science texts must be read so as to extract information accurately. • Science texts are multimodal, using a mix of words, diagrams, charts, symbols, and mathematics to communicate. • A framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas (CH3-pg19) • For the most part, students can read the words, but they don’t always ‘understand’ what they are reading. They may have difficulty tying what they read to broader principles, connecting ideas, or even analyzing a specific word or phrase that doesn’t make sense to them.

  8. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Informational text standards are embedded in grades K-5 • Separate content-specific literacy standards are provided for grade bands of 6-8, 9-10, and 11-12 • 10 Reading Standards • 10 Writing Standards

  9. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Implementation of Literacy Standards • Literacy Standards in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects began this year, 2011-2012 school year.

  10. Reading Standardsfor History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Knowledge of domain-specific vocabulary • All content areas currently utilize content/domain specific vocabulary in order to aid students in comprehension • Analyze, evaluate, and differentiate primary and secondary sources • Synthesize quantitative and technical information, including facts presented in maps, timelines, flowcharts, or diagrams • All content areas ask students to engage in learning through these avenues • Intentional and explicit instruction for students as they interact with discipline-specific text • No longer “Reading Across the Curriculum” but reading within each discipline.

  11. Writing Standardsfor History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Write arguments on discipline-specific content and informative/explanatory texts • No longer “Writing Across the Curriculum” - teaching writing tasks specific to each discipline. • Make arguments or claims and support those with the use of data, evidence, and reason • Apply domain-specific vocabulary through writing exercises unique to each discipline

  12. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • These literacy standards are used in coordination with each content area’s Indiana Academic Standards • The literacy standards DO NOT replace Indiana Academic Standards but should be integrated into current content standards • Indiana’s Academic Standards for Science were revised and adopted in 2010 for implementation this year, 2011-12

  13. Common Core State Standards Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects • Many of these literacy standards are already embedded in the lessons teachers are engaging and exposing to students. • As you work to integrate these standards into your current curriculum, consider the following connections between Indiana Academic Standards and the Common Core Literacy Standards.

  18. Progression in Science • Students need sustained practice and support because initially this text is unfamiliar-expository rather than narrative, often linguistically dense, and reliant on precise logical flaws • From the beginning students should be expected to engage in communication of science, make careful descriptions of observation and clear statements of ideas • Be able refine statements in response to feedback • (CH3-pg20, Framework)

  19. Progression in Science Upper Elementary should involve reading science texts and practice interpreting tables, diagrams, and charts and coordinating information conveyed by the written text Students should maintain scientific notebooks for observations, thoughts, ideas, and models Students should begin to make models, charts, and graphs to represent their data in middle school By high school students should receive more complex texts, wider range of material and scientific reports

  20. Next Steps for Implementation of Literacy Standards • Teachers should read through the 10 reading and 10 writing standards assigned to their specific content area • Become familiar with the standards • Make connections with lessons and instruction already utilized in your classroom or classrooms in your building through collaboration • Think of ways to modify lessons you have already created and implemented to incorporate the literacy standards • Examples of possible lesson modifications: • Have students respond in writing instead of orally to a problem posed • Ask students to read additional informational text materials in coordination with textbook readings • Spend more time daily reading and writing • Practice scientific article reviews and have students write responses

  21. Support in Implementing Literacy Standards from the Department of Education • Individual content areas are developing sample lessons aligned with the Common Core Literacy Standards • These will be posted on IDOE Learning Connection Communities • Materials and resources will be available through the Indiana Department of Education Common Core Website: • http://www.doe.in.gov/achievement/curriculum/resources-implementing-common-core-state-standards • Upcoming conferences where information regarding the Common Core Literacy Standards will be addressed:
