"Literacy is changing–not at its core necessarily, but certainly at its edges as it expands to include new kinds of “reading.”
Digital media is quickly replacing traditional media forms as those most accessible to most 21st century learners. The impact of this change is extraordinarily broad, but for now we’ll narrow it down to changes in how learners respond to the media they consume."
None of those old basal textbooks are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, but they all include great content. What to do?

"It’s hard to believe that in 1870, only 2% of 17-year-olds in this country had a high school diploma.
Over the years that number rose and peaked at 77% exactly a century later, but on average it’s been slowly falling ever since. While of course this is troubling, there is some good news for people without high school diplomas or college degrees. New ways to evaluate students are becoming more and more mainstream, as colleges become more forward-thinking and education becomes more open. Whether they’re used in admissions or in certifying valuable skills, these are the evaluation methods of the future."
