Presentation Transcript

  1. Common Core State Standards State Board of Education October 22, 2009

  2. Presentation Overview • Background: Common Core Standards Initiative • Phases of Standards Development • Details Surrounding Phase One: College & Career Readiness Standards • Oregon’s Involvement in Phase One • Next steps in the Common Core Standards development process

  3. Common Core State Standards Initiative • Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and National Governor’s Association (NGA) leading the effort • Building on work of Achieve • Goals of initiative: • Fewer, clearer and higher-level standards • Aligned with college and work expectations • Internationally benchmarked

  4. Common Core State Standards Initiative • Goals of initiative (continued) • Prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in college and careers regardless of where they live • Provide equal access to a high-quality education and the workforce

  5. Common Core State Standards: Two Phases Phase 1: College and career-readiness standards -end of high school expectations • Definitions of “College readiness” and “career readiness” • Designed to anchor K-12 standards

  6. Common Core State Standards: Two Phases Phase 2: K–12 grade level standards- grade by grade articulation of the common core • Designed to serve as guide & tool for aligning instruction, curriculum, assessment & teacher supports, & systems of accountability

  7. Common Core State Standards Initial Content Areas • Mathematics • English/Language Arts Why start with these? • Considered to be foundational skills • Are at heart of our current accountability system

  8. Common Core Development and Adoption Process Development Group ACT College Board Achieve Feedback Group State Input Common Core CCSSO State Adoption Validation Committee

  9. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards-Oregon’s Involvement • Oregon signed Memorandum of Agreement • Internal review of Draft 1 of C&CRS-response to CCSSO late July • Outreach to partners to provide feedback on Draft 2 • Internal review of Draft 2-sent Oct. 21st • Meetings & Conversations with Achieve and CCSSO staff

  10. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards Mathematics Overall Structure: • A Standard for Mathematical Practice • Six practices (or processes) • 10 Standards for Math Content • Each containing core concepts and core skills students need to understand & be able to do • Web-based collection of Example Tasks

  11. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards Mathematics Our observations and remaining concerns: • Draft 2 revisions address some recommendations submitted by ODE • Good inclusion of critical mathematics content & effective teaching and learning practices • Level of preparation/rigor included not appropriate for all students to master to graduate from high school

  12. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards English/Language Arts • Three strands • Reading Informational and Literary Texts, Writing, and Speaking & Listening • Each strand contains • Standards for Range and Content • Standards for Student Performance

  13. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards English/Language Arts (continued) • Applications of the Core • For Research • For Media • Supporting materials • Reading exemplars • Writing exemplars

  14. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards English/Language Arts Our observations and suggestions: • Reading standards can leverage significantly higher literacy rates in US over time • Reading & Writing standards both combine like concepts and/or parts of a process that go together • Listening & Speaking standards contain vital workforce skills • “Summarization” only relevant skill not included

  15. Phase 1: College and Career Readiness Standards English/Language Arts • Assessing these skills will require a constructed response form of assessment • Oregon’s current ELA standards do not include 11th and 12th grade level

  16. Next StepsPhase 2: Common Grade Level Standards • First draft of Mathematics and ELA K-12 standards to be released November 2009 • ODE coordinating statewide input process to gather feedback from the field • ODE will do gap analysis between Oregon standards and the common K-12 standards

  17. Next Steps and Considerations • Participating states asked to adopt 100% of the common core standards. States may then add additional standards if desired, but no more than 15% of total number of standards • Adoption timeline under further review due to varying state adoption processes • National conversations around common assessment system aligned to common core, professional development needs and instructional materials beginning soon
