As the developer of the Common Core Cheat Sheet, I'm glad to see that it's spreading and assisting educators implement the ELA standards.

Probably the most important part of this resource collection is the emphasis on everyone being responsible for literacy, not just the teachers.  Students, parents, staff, and administration have an important part to play as well.

ELA Highlights: “Core Advocate” Event in Philadelphia

ELA Highlights: “Core Advocate” Event in Philadelphia | Common Core Standards K-12 | Scoop.it

By Christina Hank

Nov. 5, 2012

 

A few months ago I was invited by Student Achievement Partners (achievethecore.org) to become a “Common Core Advocate” with 100 other educators across the nation. 

 

3 ELA Shifts:


1. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction

Misconception: Not reading fiction anymore–We are spending more time with nonfiction. We are actually using texts as a source of knowledge. We can learn about what’s happening through text. In elementary right now, 80%of what kids read is stories. The breakdown is closing to 50/50 by 5th

2. Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational


3. Regular practice with complex text and its academic language

The gap between college level reading requirements and what kids read in 12th grade is greater than the gap between what kids read in 8th and 4th grade This is the most challenging of the shifts because it goes against everything we have been doing in terms of teaching to students’ instructional levels–We are talking about kids being productively frustrated here.

Achievement Gaps Grow on Kentucky's New Common Core Tests

All of the achievement gaps between whites and blacks and Hispanic in each grade, in both reading and math, increased from the KCCT to the K-PREP tests, with the exception of the gap in 3rd grade math and 5th grade math between whites and blacks.
