2014-2015 Common Core Implementation

The Common Core State Standards will require new, more rigorous academic expectations as far as curriculum and assessments.  Students will be required to:

  • Solve problems with more time, using a variety of tools
  • Demonstrate mastery of complex test items using a variety of answering techniques
  • Cite evidence, substantiate answers, and defend conclusions
  • Demonstrate technology, writing, and critical thinking skills

The CTB/McGraw Hill blog recommends the following  7 things students can do NOW to get ready for the Common Core State Standards:

What are the Common Core State Standards?

Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards.

Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the CCSS to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.
