The Gettysburg Address: Literary Nonfiction and the Common Core | Edutopia - 5 views

  •  
    A nice reflection on what is happening to reading with Common Core. I find the overemphasis on literary nonfiction problematic, unless, the fact that math and history are primarily nonfiction allows history to remain 60-70% fiction, however, for those schools who just have "reading" in history (that would be sad), this is going to have issues. This is a great read. "The CCSS mandates that by the end of high school, 70% of what students read should be informational texts -- specifically, complex and non-narrative literary nonfiction. Furthermore, students should be able to identify central ideas and articulate their development, summarize, analyze, draw inferences, identify an author's purpose, evaluate the effectiveness of rhetorical features, and figure out the meaning of words. In short, the CCSS has reclaimed a technique popular in the 1940s, close reading, or sustained interpretation of, in particular, the wording of a text."

Common Core - Working to Bring Exciting, Comprehensive, Content-Rich Instruction to Every Classroom in America - 2 views

  •  
    We believe that a child who graduates from high school without an understanding of culture, the arts, history, history, civics, and language has in fact been left behind. So to improve education in America, we're promoting programs, policies, and initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels that provide students with challenging, rigorous instruction in the full range of liberal arts and sciences.

    Very heartening to see a growing movement advocating a knowledge-rich, intellectually rigorous curriculum for schools. They've got the funds to hire good photographers and models with nice skin, too.

    This is a fascinating site to explore ancient civilizations while looking at: cities, religion, technology, trade, writing, or buildings. I could see many fascinating ways to use this tool, however, I keep wishing that having ways for students to add information and thoughts would begin to be a part of the focus of museums -- for indeed preserving how people think and reflect on things such as history is an amazing archival opportunity in itself!
