How we visualize the standards makes all the difference. It is very tempting to look them in isolation and disregard the spirit behind them, which is communicated in conversations and documents on the periphery of the official lists of standards.

No way...  this is a bit scary if teachers truly believe this.

 

While the quick adoption of Common Core by 46 states was cheered by those who had been pushing for common standards for decades, the more jaded among us wondered: Do most states really understand what they signed up for?

How the Common Core Standards Tackle Problem Solving

How the Common Core Standards Tackle Problem Solving | Common Core Social Studies | Scoop.it
Ben Johnson served as an administrator in large and small schools, and at a charter school.

 

When you say that someone is literate, you are not saying that they know how to read; you are saying that they are well read or have read a lot. And not only that but the assumption is that they have acquired the knowledge gained from reading (it is part of them and it is used both to support and to contradict what this literate person believes or doesn't believe). A literate person therefore has evidence to bolster and base beliefs upon and ammunition to argue against other beliefs. As the CCSS explain in the Appendix A, this is more than simple persuasion. The argument must be compelling, believable and irrefutable.
