The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative from 2010 that details what K–12 students throughout the United States should know in English language arts and mathematics at the conclusion of each school grade. The initiative is sponsored by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and seeks to establish consistent educational standards across the states as well as ensure that students graduating from high school are prepared to enter credit-bearing courses at two- or four-year college programs or to enter the workforce. Lessons are in reading, writing, speaking and listening, language, and media and technology. Reading lessons include critical content such as classic myths and stories from around the world, foundational U.S. documents, works of American literature, and Shakespeare. Writing lessons include research projects, written analysis, presentations, annotated samples of writing, arguments, explanatory writings, and narratives. Language lessons include vocabulary, conventions, et cetera. Media and technology lessons involve standards using instruction in keyboarding. Mathematics lessons include problem-solving, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling with mathematics, using appropriate tools strategically, attending to precision, looking for and making use of structure, and looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning. The actual content of the mathematics tutoring lessons includes counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base 10, measurement and data, geometry, number and operations fractions, ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, statistics and probability, and functions.Students and parents must advise as to how lessons are to be organized and structured. I have three years of this kind of tutoring experience.
