Common Core: The Non-Fiction Conundrum | language arts | Scoop.it

..the fear is that content area teachers will not do their part. For those teachers in content areas, specifically in STEM areas, educators will be tasked with how to integrate reading materials into a subject that is already crowded and doesn't seem to lend itself naturally to literary endeavors.
