NYS COMMON CORE LEARNING
STANDARDS:
THE NEXT GENERATION OF
EDUCATIONAL STANDARDS
Holy Angels Catholic Academy

Deputy Superintendent of Schools
As we begin….
How has education
changed?
Something to think about…
“Are we preparing students for
their future or our past?”
David Thornburg
Standards: The Next Generation



Why the Common Core?
Where can I find the Common Core State
Standards?
What will shift and what will be different
in 2012?
Overarching Question
 Why
do we have Common
Core State Standards?
It is all about….
 College
and Career
Readiness
 Uniformity
 Globalization
Common Core State Standards
Initiative





Preparing America’s Students for College and
Career Readiness in the 21st Century
Led by the Council of Chief State Officers
(CCSSO) and the National Governors
Association (NGA).
Focus on English Language Arts and
Mathematics linking Social Studies, Science
and the Technology.
Supported by national teacher professional
organizations.
Studied NAEP results and high performing
countries.
Core Standards Movement
•
•
•
Movement towards greater focus
and coherence
Movement toward “fewer
standards” and more “focused
standards”
Movement toward “clarity” and
“specificity”
Criticism of the Current
Curriculum…
“A mile wide and an inch deep”
Important to note…
“No set of grade-specific standards can truly
reflect the great variety in abilities, needs,
learning rates and achievement levels of
students in any given classroom.
However, the Common Core Standards do
provide clear signposts along the way to
the goal of college and career readiness
for all students.”
Introduction to Common Core State Standards
CURRICULUM



….every learning activity that a child takes
part in – in and out of school.
…includes all the resources that are used.
….includes the tools of technology.
More importantly….

The Common Core State Standards are
not new names for old ways of doing
business. They are a call to take the next
step…..
……the next generation!
The standards represent an evolution
– that are the starting point, they are
not an endpoint!
HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT

Standards movement 1990’s


Resulted in the NYS Learning Standards and the
New York State Testing program
Movement toward application
Listening
 DBQ’s
 Science Station
 Applying and Communicating Mathematical
Concepts and Skills

Shifts in ELA and Literacy
1. Balancing Informational and
Literary Text
2. Building Knowledge in the Discipline
3. Staircase of Complexity
4. Text-Based Answers
5. Writing From Sources
6. Academic Vocabulary
“Our students need to read like
detectives and write like
investigative
reporters.”
Authors of the Common Core

Essence of mathematics….
“The standards stress not only procedural skill
but also conceptual understanding, to make
sure students are learning and absorbing the
critical information they need to succeed at higher
levels - rather than the current practices by which
many students learn enough to get by on the next
test, but forget it shortly thereafter, only to review
again the following year.”

What does the future hold?
“If students don’t develop the habit of
critical, analytical thinking, they will
never achieve meaningful
understanding. A head full of scientific
facts and ideas is not enough: The
ability to think critically gives these
ideas meaning and allows them to
flourish and grow.”
Science Class Magazine
Referencing the foundation of the next generation
What will change? What will
stay the same?





Attendance at school is, and remains, an
important indicator of academic success.
Homework may look different.
Instruction should be more student centered
Assessments will look different.
Life Long Learning will be required – for
everyone!
“Nothing will change unless attitudes
change.”
Shifts in Questions to Ask Your Children
Shift from questions that do not foster critical thinking –



What did you get on the test today?
What did you get for an answer?
How did your teacher tell you to do it?
To questions that promote reasoning and understanding
–







What questions did you ask at school today?
Can you explain your reasoning?
Can you think of another way to do it?
What does this make you think about?
How do you know that?
Can you show me what you mean?
When did we do something like this?
What will be required…
“Any thing that can be done with
technology, will be done with technology.
Jobs of the future will require people that
can think creatively, ask the big questions the new questions - and think outside the
box.”
Howard Gardner
