Common Core State Standards

Year 1 Professional Learning Resources

Mathematics - Year 1 Professional Learning Resources

The Washington State Mathematics three-year transition plan focuses on one domain area for each year of the transition. The chosen domain of focus for year one aligns to the current testing of the MSP. Each year an additional domain will be added, but the process will remain constant for each year.

Please contact your local ESD for dates and locations.

Module Description

Introduction and Overview of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) - (approx.. 1-2 hours)

This information can be accessed through the OSPI webinars or other online resources.

Step One: Decoding the Language of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) – (approx. 3 hours)

During this training, teachers will dig into the language of the standards and what the content standards expect from students.

Step Two: Deepening Your Understanding of the Mathematics in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS–M) - (approx. 4 hours)

Teachers will further unpack the standards by looking at examples and connecting content standards to the Standards of Mathematical Practices.

Step Three: Connecting the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) to Instructional Materials – (approx. 1.5 hours )

Teachers will have an opportunity to link the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics to instructional materials and other resources. Teachers will examine the cognitive complexity of tasks within their materials and consider the amount of scaffolding that is appropriate.

 

English Language Arts - Year 1 Professional Learning Resources

The Washington State English Language Arts three-year transition plan focuses on the primary shifts within the CCSS necessary for each year of the transition.

Please contact your local ESD for dates and locations.

Module Description

Step One: Getting to Know the ELA CCSS

Time: Min. 3 hours

Receive an overview of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and (ELA) Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. The presenters will explain some of the major constructs of ELA Common Core. Participants will deconstruct the document and learn the major components, content and organization with a brief explanation of: Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, and Language.

Year One Module (7 Documents) (ZIP)

Step Two: The Vertical Articulation of the ELA CCSS

Time: Min. 3 hours

The ELA Common Core Standards provide a level of detail well beyond what is provided in the written standard. In this presentation participants will learn the vertical and horizontal progression of the standards by strands. The presenter will demonstrate the integration of knowledge and skills through multiple strands with a staircase approach.
Year Two Module (34 documents) (ZIP)

Step Three: Going Deeper with Text-Complexity

Time: Min. 3 hours

The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects outlines three-part meld for measuring text complexity. Participants will learn to provide guidance and support to strengthen reading instruction and to incorporate the kinds of complex texts that are most likely to increase students’ readiness for career and college level reading.
Year Three Module (9 documents) (ZIP)
