The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts shift the balance of literature in the elementary grades to 50 percent informational texts and 50 percent literature. This balance is important in preparing students for later grades and non-literary texts.

The Common Core State Standards are the result of a collaborative effort of the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association for Best Practices to ensure that the nation's students will be ready to be productive and successful in college and the global workplace.
This is a presentation of the five principles upon which the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics are built, the first of which is that upon meeting these standards, students are college-and-career ready. This video discusses the process under which the Common Core standards were developed.
The Common Core State Standards dedicate a strand to grammar in both writing and in speaking. Students are expected to apply these formal conventions in greater and greater measure as they progress through the grades. Students must be able to use grammar well in order to be successful in their post-secondary endeavors.
When developing the Common Core Standards, a wide range of education professors and practitioners, as well as leaders in fields of business, identified skills that students need in order to be successful in college and career.
This is a discussion of the key elements in the Common Core English Language Arts standards. It presents the five critical shifts within the standards toward: text complexity; analysis, inference and evidence; writing to sources; mastery of writing and speaking; and academic vocabulary, especially for English Learners.
Students often 'hit a wall' with Algebra. The Common Core Math Standards include an algebraic thinking strand beginning in kindergarten that supports later student success in formal Algebra courses.
The Common Core Math Standards free teachers to more fully address key mathematical concepts at each grade level.
The Common Core presents a careful, prescribed sequence of mathematics for elementary and middle school, but the sequence of mathematic instruction in high school has historically varied across the nation. Therefore, at the high school level, the Common Core Mathematics Standards present math subject matter and do not dictate courses. Modeling and probability/statistics is included in all math subjects.
The Mathematics Common Core Standards are designed to be characterized by their coherence, so that students understand the context of their mathematics instruction and understand the subject as making sense and being highly applicable across all disciplines.
The Common Core State Standards were charged to base their work on evidence. The data revealed a mismatch between higher education and K-12 -- more mastery of fewer topics vs. covering more content. Focus means spending more time on fewer things, especially in lower grades, so that students build success upon foundational skills that they can expand and apply in later grades.
The Common Core Standards have content standards, as well as standards of practice. The standards of practice help students develop habits of mind that enable them to model mathematics to problems arising outside of the mathematics classroom. The math practice standards also ask students to use mathematics tools in flexible, sophisticated, and relevant ways across disciplines.
The writing of the mathematics standards was based upon a series of progressions in mathematics with natural tie-in points across a grade level.
The Common Core Math Standards are woven out of progressions in domains from one grade to another. These simultaneous progressions enable students to better see the application of fundamental mathematical properties in various math domains.
The Common Core Standards in English Language Arts are standards for a wide-range of literacies, including reading and understanding History, Social Science, Science and Technical subject texts. This focus helps students build knowledge through reading and writing in the disciplines, as they are able to analyze primary and secondary sources, reference material, and experimental results.
The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts expands the study of literary non-fiction in later grades. This allows English Language Arts teachers to utilize their expertize to cultivate students' deeper understanding of complex and varied texts.
The Common Standards in Literacy provide opportunities for students to delve more deeply into more varied texts, especially literary non-fiction. These texts inform us about the world and people's thinking about it, including many of the founding documents of our nation.
Segmento breve de introducción, la historia de los estándares y su desarrollo. La promesa de estudiantes preparados para el trabajo y la universidad.
Good mathematical practices benefit from the coherence and focus of the Common Core Mathematics Standards.
The Common Core Math Standards build balance between procedural fluency and conceptual understanding.
This presents a general discussion of the development of the Common Core Mathematics Standards and the aspirations within them for student college-and-career readiness and success.
The Mathematics Common Core Standards can be characterized by their structure designed to build focus and coherence for students. The standards in elementary and middle school are organized into domains that have discrete life spans with increased focus. In high school, the standards are designed to include real-world applications and modeling into other discplines.
This is a general discussion of the Common Core Mathematics standards and their call for focus and coherency.
This presents a detailed description of the three domains of numbers and operations: Operations and Algebraic Thinking; Number and Operations in Base Ten; and Numbers and Operations -- Fractions. It also discusses Arithmetic as a rehearsal for Algebra.
Ratio and proportion in the middle grades are foundational for high school mathematics and for mathematics connections to real-world applications.
This is a general discussion of the balance between math skills and understanding that is built through the standards. The Common Core Mathematics Standards allow teachers to go more deeply with their students, preparing students to not only "do" the math, but to "use" the math.
Student collaboration is key to success in college and career, and the Common Core standards for Speaking and Listening include collaboration standards. These standards focus on collaboration in multiple settings and ask students to be prepared and respectful, and to engage in problem-solving in formal and informal situations.
What does it look like to read a high-quality work of literary non-fiction? This presents a picture of how to present an in-depth analysis and discussion of Dr. King's Letter from a Birmingham Jail. Examples are drawn from specific, well-argued paragraphs, with an explanation of the cognitive requirements of the Standards.
The progression from adding and multiplying whole numbers into working with fractions in the Common Core Standards helps students understand the unity of numbers.
Students who attain to the Common Core writing standards will possess the ability to write to inform and make arguments. This will require student analytical writing, the ability to render complex information clearly and to write across multiple disciplines.
