Carnegie Corporation of New York: Reading in the Disciplines

This is not a new report--it was published in 2010--but it bears looking at again if you have concerns about the literacy skills that content area (ie, not English) teachers are being asked to teach in order for all high school students to meet Common Core State Standards.  This link will take you to an abstract and a pdf link to download the report.

Erika Harrison's curator insight, November 14, 2013 12:05 PM

Brilliant insights (as usual) from Harold Jarche - Life in Perpetual Beta

 

"The elephant in the room is human nature. Enterprise knowledge sharing will never be as good as what networked individuals can do. Individuals who own their knowledge networks will invest more in them. I think this means that innovation outside of organizations will continue to evolve faster than inside. It may mean that the half-life of organizations will continue to decrease, as more nimble businesses continuously emerge to compete with incumbents. Whoever creates an organizational structure that bridges the individual-organizational knowledge sharing divide may have significant business advantages".
