Don’t Throw out Baby Macbeth: Common Core says think bigger, better, and beyond the book | Roz Linder.com

The Common Core standards have suggested titles that they recommend based on reading levels. The only texts required actually are Shakespeare and American seminal documents. Yet article after article complain that literature is being dethroned. English classes should not be synonymous with Literature. Literature is a type of English class, just like Geography is a type of Social Studies class. English includes far more than Literature. Unfortunately in our high schools that has not been true.

Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.
