Common Core links: The rise of info text, local vs. federal control, and the arts
By Tyler on December 3rd, 2012
The following is a roundup of news and opinions we’ve read about the Common Core State Standards over the last week.
Lyndsey Layton at The Washington Post files on the ongoing fiction vs. nonfiction debate. “English teachers across the country are trying to figure out which poetry, short stories and novels might have to be sacrificed to make room for nonfiction,” she writes.
Andy Rotherham reacts to the Post’s story, saying more nonfiction doesn’t have to come at the expenses of fiction.
Ed Week’s founding editor Ronald Wolk writes that to achieve the Common Core’s laudable and lofty goals will take a “herculean” effort and a couple of decades time.
A post over at Education Sector looks at the conflict between the “local control” movement and the Common Core.
Edutopia offers some great advice for integrating the arts into Common Core classrooms.
