Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainfield District Curriculum
Emphasizing skills such as problem solving, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, the CCSS lays the foundation for students to enter college or the career field fully prepared upon graduation. The Smarter Balanced Assessment will be aligned with the CSS so that Plainfield Public School District can accurately measure student program throughout the academic school year.
The major transitions in literacy instruction demanded by Common Core are the incorporation of more rich informational texts, reading and writing that demonstrate evidence from texts, and regular exposure to complex texts and academic vocabulary. Meanwhile, the main shifts in the math curriculum are more focused standards, coherence across grades and with other content areas, and more rigorous standards that require a deeper understanding of the content. Students are expected to solve problems and persevere in doing so, use abstract and quantitative reasoning, construct logical arguments, and critique the math outcomes of others.

Chalk Talk: Common Core Standards: What Is It?
By now, most parents have heard about the Common Core Standards Initiative that is sweeping across the United States. While there is much debate around the topic, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are essentially a new set of academic standards in mathematics and English/Language Arts. The standards outline what a student should know and be able to do at the end of every grade level. The curriculum states the precise skills and content knowledge that students should learn, but do not prescribe how they should be taught. Working to solve differences between individual state standards, CCSS does not vary from state to state. They are national standards so students in Connecticut are under the same expectations as students from any other state. Hoping to prepare students for college and career readiness, the CCSS are hitting classrooms and schools across the United States.
