Slide46

Our guiding beliefs and approach for CCSS Implementation in WA

2-Prongs:

The What:

Content Shifts (for students and educators)

Belief that past standards implementation efforts have provided a strong foundation on which to build for

CCSS; HOWEVER there are shifts that need to be attended to in the content.

The How:

System “Remodeling”

Belief that successful CCSS implementation will not take place top down or bottom up – it must be “both, and…”

Belief

that

districts and communities

across the state have the conditions and commitment present to engage wholly in this work.

Professional learning systems are critical

Slide47

Shifts in ELABuilding knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts in addition to literatureReading and writing grounded in evidence from the textRegular practice with complex text and its academic vocabularyThese apply to content area (social studies, science, and technical subject) teachers as well as to English teachers.Shifts in MathematicsFocus: 2-3 topics focused on deeply in each grade Coherence: Concepts logically connected from one grade to the next and linked to other major topics within the gradeRigor: Fluency with arithmetic, application of knowledge to real world situations, and deep understanding of mathematical concepts

The “What”:ELA and Math Content Shifts
