Why are the common core standards such a good thing for the highly mobile Military child.

College and Career Ready Standards: What Does That Mean for the Military Connected Student?

• What Does the Common Core Mean to You?

What do we already know about the College and Career Readiness and the Common Core Standards? T-P-S Activity Turn to a neighbor (or 2) and discuss what you already know about CCR Standards for about 2 minutes.

To succeed in 21st century college and careers, students need to be able to: 1. Solve problems 2. Manage oneself 3. Adapt to change 4. Analyze / conceptualize 5. Reflect on / improve performance 6. Communicate 7. Work in teams 8. Create / innovate / critique 9. Engage in learning throughout life

What are the Common Core Standards? • Fewer, clearer, and higher • Aligned with college and work expectations • Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking and application of knowledge • Internationally benchmarked • Evidence-and/or research-based -23collegeready.pdf Pages 4-9

#MilFams hold education in high regard and use it to make decisions: • about keeping family together when new orders arrive. • about staying in the Military or getting out.

So what is the impact of the new standards on Military students? • The increased likelihood of comparable education across districts and states reduces obstacles to mobile students regardless of their zip code

Adverbs in the CCSS • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.1e Use adjectives and adverbs, and choose between them depending on what is to be modified.

• Increased alignment between K-12 and post- secondary narrows the gap in college and career readiness – This will influence families in their decisions to move or not with their Service Member because there are often feelings of their child not being “ready” for college if they graduate from a particular school/state.
