He created an annotatible version of the CCSS that address writing as a way to begin to "internalize & critically consider the text of the writing standards." This is well worth spending some time exploring. ~klbz

My Censorship Problem with NCTE | Dailycensored.com

As members of an online forum called NCTE Connected Community Open Forum, longtime NCTE member Steve Krashen and a handful of other concerned members have posted items critical of NCTE’s refusal to issue a statement of concern about the Common Core Curriculum standards. A few of us have pointed out that instead NCTE has launched a program of publishing books and professional development courses supporting the Common Core. Concern about this seemed to be growing."

Digital Writing and the Common Core | NWP Digital Is | Teaching Digital Writing | Scoop.it

“Writing today,” say the authors of Because Digital Writing Matters, “is pervasively and generally digital; composed with digital tools; created out of word, image, sound, and motion; circulated in digital environments; and consumed across a wide range of digital platforms.” Many teachers are wondering, however, whether digital writing can align with the ELA strand of the Common Core State Standards, now adopted by 45 states and DC.

COLUMN | The teaching of writing is killing our children’s natural desire to express themselves.

"Leading this movement is Paula Stacey, an editor and educator who has taught every level of writing instruction. Her Sept. 21 Education Week piece exposed the torture that is Composition 101. “We have the entire English department at a local high school,” Stacey wrote, “embracing a schoolwide essay format that calls for exactly three central paragraphs containing exactly eight sentences: topic sentence, detail sentence, commentary sentence, another detail sentence, another commentary sentence, a final detail sentence, a final commentary sentence, and a concluding sentence.

“At a different high school across town, a history teacher hands out zeros to students who don’t have the thesis statement as the final sentence in the opening paragraph. Meanwhile, a woman I know who teaches at an elite research university bemoans the fact that her students, among the best in the country, have mastered the five-paragraph essay but can’t develop a complex idea in writing.”
