**Common Core State Standards**Slow and Steady**The Plan**• K-2 Teachers will USE the Common Core State Standards beginning Fall 2011 (yep, next year) • K-2 Assessments will be aligned to the Common Core State Standards (this has been CONFIRMED)**How will teachers be supported?**State Supports: • Unpacking documents • Crosswalks (compares Essential Standards and Common Core) • Professional Development materials • Sample assessments**How will teachers be supported?**District Supports: • Alignment documents • Pacing documents • Professional Development**How will YOU be supported?**Ongoing professional development during Math Facilitator Meetings • January: Common Core 101 • February: K-2 Geometry • March: K-2 Measurement • April: Unpacking the Common Core • Ongoing: K-2 Number**Take a Deep Breath**And let out a big sigh of relief…**The Standards allow us to:**• focus on what really matters • have common expectations across states • help children build a deeper understanding of mathematics**Our Goal Today**• Build common language around the CCSS • Understand structural components of the Standards**Structure of the Common Core**Standards for Mathematical Practice 8 standards that describe what mathematically proficient students do Find the Standards for Practice “mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution.”**Structure of the Common Core**Standards for Mathematical Practice Standards for Mathematical Content Define what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics**Structure of the Common Core**Introduction**Structure of the Common Core**Overview**Structure of the Common Core**Standards define what students should understand and be able to do.**Structure of the Common Core**Domains are large groups of related standards**Structure of the Common Core**Clusters are groups of related standards. Note that standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject.**Structure of the Common Core**• Standards define what students should understand and be able to do. • Clusters are groups of related standards. Note that standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject. • Domains are larger groups of related standards.**Backdrops:**- These are full sized backdrops, just scale them up! - Can be Copy-Pasted out of Templates for use anywhere! www.animationfactory.com
