Reading for Literature Standard 6 is one of the most misunderstood Common Core Standards. many teachers are mistakenly teaching this as a unit on first, second, and third person. This is simply off base. What RL6 is really about is character point of view. What beliefs and attitudes shape their perspectives? A fabulous book to teach this is Voices in the Park by Anthony Browne

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Common core | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral | Common core | Scoop.it

Learning research consistently shows that an emphasis on test scores does not necessarily lead to gains in academic performance. Perhaps learning, with its long-term gains and diffuse experiences does not lend itself well to an economic model. Instead of focusing on test scores at the elementary and secondary levels, why not take a longer-term view? Why public education? What are our true goals for teaching and learning? When pressed, most politicians will state that the long-term goals of education are to develop a citizenry that maximizes contributions to society and economy; yet, our standard test measures typically seem unrelated to the higher-order qualities that lead to such engaged citizens.

This article makes some good and concise points against standardized testing, but it doesn't really say anything we don't think already.  What we really need now are new evaluation and assessment tools based on updated goals for education.

Tracy Mehoke (梅恬溪)'s comment, July 22, 2013 5:56 AM
I appreciated the mention that despite ranking in the middle on PISA tests, the USA continues to rank highly in global innovation. What exactly are we trying to measure again ;P ?

Drop the Canon and Step Away From the Students! | Roz Linder.com | Common core | Scoop.it

I have read a lot of blog posts, articles, and presentations framed around the idea that Common Core is forcing High School teachers to get rid of fiction. By 12th grade, Common Core does suggest that 70% of text should be informational. Some people have ignored this increased Informational text requirement by pointing out that this is for all text in school, not just within English classes. Acknowledging this as a fact somehow means that English teachers can continue teaching with majority fiction text. The flaw in this logic is that to accept this argument is to assume that prior to Common Core students were reading fiction in other content areas. The fact is that students have always read primarily informational text in other content areas. The fiction-the literature-comes from the English teachers. So if Common Core says to add more informational text, you better believe that they mean that this should happen in the English classes as well. I am not going to argue about percents here, but the fact is that English courses are not just Literature courses. They never should have been. This disconnect is because most English teachers become English teachers because they are lovers of literature. This is not appropriate and really never has been. Common Core just makes that obvious.
