The ELA Common Core: A grand opportunity for grand misconceptions

The ELA Common Core: A grand opportunity for grand misconceptions | MASSP News | Scoop.it

"There is no time as potentially transformative as the present."

Myth: English teachers have to stop teaching narrative and shift to almost solely nonfiction. Myth: We must use complex texts all of the time. Myth: Content-area teachers must stop teaching content. Myth: Students can write only from sources, not their experience.

 

Open up your copy of the CCSS. This is what your state adopted. Turn to Page 6: “What is not covered by the Standards.” Here’s an excerpt (emphasis added).

“The Standards define what all students are expected to know and be able to do, not how teachers should teach.” “They do not describe all that can or should be taught. A great deal is left to the discretion of teachers and curriculum developers.” “The Standards do not define the nature of advanced work …” “The Standards … do not define the intervention methods or materials necessary to support students …”
