Common Core State Standards

The goal of the Common Core State Standards is to instill the 21st century, higher-thinking skills in an effort to prepare each student for college, their future career pursuits, and the ability to thrive in a modern economy and global society.

Some ways Common Core State Standards are preparing each student:

  • Reasoning skills and writing: Students will need to “show their work” by providing evidence and reasoning to support their thinking – not just rote memorization and repetition of facts. Each student will have to demonstrate these skills through clear and persuasive writing.
  • Think outside of worksheets: Students will be expected to demonstrate deep reasoning abilities. There may be fewer overall homework assignments, but they challenge the student to participate in more analytical thinking and writing.
  • Non-Fiction is important too: Students will be reading a larger amount of fiction and nonfiction writing, developing techniques to analyze the evidence presented and formulate thoughtful arguments based on the text.
  • Collaboration: Working well as a team is a crucial skill for success in the world today. Students will work together in an atmosphere that encourages a constructive exchange of ideas, and learn listening skills to apply and integrate concepts cohesively.
  • Adaptive tests: Computer-adaptive testing is designed to adjust to the difficulty level needed for each individual student. As students answer questions correctly, the questions get progressively harder. These tests provide a more accurate student assessment and ensure that each student is being challenged.
  • Encouraged to Grow: Common Core State Standards are individualized to measure academic growth in every student, regardless of where that student begins. Every student will be challenged to stretch their learning.
