1. Reading and Writing Across the Curriculum
  Literacy is an important skill, not only in English
  language arts, but also in history/social studies,
  science, and technical subjects.

    Grades 9-10: Standard #9
    English Language Arts Standard
      Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to
      support analysis, reflection, and research.

                                      History/Social Studies,

Overview of Text Complexity
2. Evaluating Text Complexity
       Instruction should explicitly acknowledge that texts
        vary in their level of complexity, and that meanings
        can be derived from the texts themselves.

       The reading standards place equal emphasis on the
        sophistication of what students read and the skill
        with which they read.
       a)   Qualitative measures – levels of meaning,
            structure, language conventionality and
            clarity, and knowledge demands
       b)   Quantitative measures – readability and
            other scores of text complexity
       c)   Reader and Task – background knowledge
            of reader, motivation, interests, and
            complexity generated by tasks assigned      Reader and Task


                                                                          5

3. Attention to Vocabulary Acquisition
   Awareness of nuances that can be conveyed
    through various words and their meanings
    ◦ Duck as a noun vs. Duck as a verb
    ◦ Use word roots to understand new words
        bookshelf, notebook, bookmark
    ◦ Clarify meaning of a word or phrase based on its
      context
    ◦ Demonstrate an understanding of word relationships
        toss, throw, hurl
        tell, retell

4. Drawing Evidence from Sources and
   Writing Arguments
   The critical role of using evidence in analyzing text,
   evaluating arguments, and understanding the
   author’s point of view.
    Progression of the Writing Standards

5. Engage in a Range of Collaborative
   Interactions
    Speaking and Listening, Grade 5
     Engage effectively (with diverse partners)
     in a range of collaborative discussions
         one-on-one
         in groups
         teacher-led

6. Integration of Media Sources Across
      Standards
    Grade 6 Examples Across the Strands
    Reading Standards for Informational Text
       Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually,
        quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a
        topic or issue.
    Writing Standards
     Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as
        well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient
        command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single
        sitting.
    Speaking and Listening Standards
       Include multimedia components (e.g., graphics, images, music, sound)
        and visual displays in presentations to clarify information.



                                                                                     9

1. Standards of Mathematical Practice
   Describe Mathematical
    “Habits of Mind”
   Emphasize mathematical
    knowing not knowledge
   Practices are cross-
    cutting. They related to
    the content standards at
    ALL grade-levels

2. Emphasize Both Conceptual
   Understanding & Mathematical Fluency
      Mathematics as sense making
       ◦ Students know not only how to apply skills but also
         when to apply them and why they are being applied.

            Understand that that the two digits
              of a two-digit number represent
                    amounts of tens and ones.
                                      (1.NBT.2)




                                                               15

2. Emphasize Both Conceptual
   Understanding & Mathematical Fluency
    Mathematics as skills and procedures
     ◦ The ability to retrieve facts automatically from long-
       term memory, make solving more complex problems
       quicker and less likely to result in errors.


                           … by the end of grade 3, know
                             from memory all products of
                          two one-digit numbers. (3.OA.7)




                                                                16

                                              Standards
       Compose simple shapes to form larger
       shapes (e.g., 2 triangles to form a        2        K
       rectangle)

4. Strong Emphasis on Understanding
   Fractions
    Represent fractions with number lines by
     defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole
     and partitioning it into equal parts. (3.NF.2.a)

           1/5   1/5   1/5   1/5   1/5




       0                                 1

     Keeps the relationship between
     part and whole clearly visible.

5. Options for Grade 8
        The Goal for 8th grade students is Algebra 1, but not
         all students have the necessary skills
        There are two sets of standards for grade 8. Each
         prepare students for college and career
     ◦       CCCS for 8th grade math
     ◦       Standards for Algebra 1
             A combination of 8th grade CCSS,
             the Algebra content cluster, and
             CA’s existing Algebra I standards




                                                                 19

6. High School Standards Organized
   Around Conceptual Categories
   High schools standards are grouped by conceptual
    themes (not by grade level or course title). The themes
    are
       ◦   Number and quantity
       ◦   Algebra
       ◦   Functions
       ◦   Modeling
       ◦   Geometry
       ◦   Probability and Statistics
   () Standards that incorporate modeling
   (+) Standards that are needed for advanced coursework
