  12. Common Core Shifts for ELA/Literacy • Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction • Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literacy and informational • Regular practice with complex text and its academic language From www.achievethecore.org, 2012

  13. Common Core Shifts for Mathematics • Focustopics specified at each grade level. • Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades • Rigor: In major topics pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity From www.achievethecore.org, 2012

  14. Assessments • Spring 2015 – Shift to online testing in grades 3-5 from SmarterBalance • District Benchmark assessments beginning this school year (approx. week 12 and week 24) to support a smooth transition to the Smarter Balance Assessments.
