Vanessa Chaparro's curator insight, December 8, 2013 11:31 PM

This article deals with the reading aspect of the common core in elementary school and what should be kept, added, or taken away. I can see how independent reading in a classroom can be seemed unuseful, but at the same time if feedback is always required on readings, then the student is not reading for pleasure. A student will begin to think that reading is only meant to get something out of it rather than just feeling good about oneself. Strong outcomes are promised with the elementary reading curriculum, but is it worth it to absolutly take away the minor activities that allow students to be independent by making thier own choices without having to give anything back in return?
