Post for the week of August 27, 2012

I just read this great article, titled "Two Common Core Blunders to Avoid--and How to do It" (thanks to Darren Burris for tweeting it--look for him on Twitter).

This post makes some great points.  Don't miss-read the 70/30 split as the English teacher's problem--a whole school need to get involved to promote informational text appropriately. 

I would suggest that school leaders collect and start to analyze how much reading is taking place in all courses.  Once you have that data, start to re-plan what is read and when and why and how.

We have to work together to make the literacy goals of the Common Core visible in our schools.
