NOTE: In my blog, English Updates, I will be completing an in-depth study of the new federal guidelines for English language arts. For other up-to-date reviews of professional articles in English education journals, please see my blog, English Education Archives at http://engedarc-rays.blogspot.com/
10-second review: “The standards define what all students are expected to know and be able to do but not how teachers should teach. The standards do not describe all that can or should be taught.”
Title: “CCSSI (
Standards Initiative) for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies and Science.” March 10, 2010, p. Common Core State
Comment: The real problem will be how to measure the achievement of the standards. RayS. You will find the standards at http://www.corestandards.org/. RayS.
