Retooled Textbooks Aim to Capture Common Core

Retooled Textbooks Aim to Capture Common Core | English Learners, ESOL Teachers | Scoop.it

"Basal readers rely more on analysis and documentation and less on students’ personal experiences."  When we think about the Common Core State Standards, instead of retooling and teaching to the test, what we need to do is understand how to relate the content that they have to the standard.

Cam E's curator insight, February 4, 2014 12:17 PM

What a journey that must have been, to not return to your country for 30 years after going on vacation. Apart from the personal story in the article, the notion of ethnic groups that we practical never hear of is really interesting. While it makes sense that there were Chinese people in Mexico, it's just something which I never actively realized. There should be a  book of ethnic conflicts which never make the well-known history books, if there isn't one already.
