Watch this video presentation here: http://neric.welearntube.org/?q=node/146 Shifts in literacy with CC 1. 50 percent stories and 50 percent informational text. We know in K-5 that is where the foundation of knowledge is developed. Great place to learn about the world and create mental structures for future learning.

They're here... The Common Core Standards - Available for Comment This was five-year-old Carol Anne's ominous announcement made at her parents' home while starring into a static television when referring to the presence of unknown beings in her home. Their antics, benign at first, such as moving and stacking the kitchen table chairs soon turn quite disturbing as Poltergeist fans can attest. Like the unknown beings in the movie, the newly released draft of the Common Core Standards have had a ghostly presence to the masses who have seen pictures of Governors linked in arms with smiles on their faces as they unite to support the release of standards for a nation. While I do agree the premise of having international or at least national standards, makes sense, I do have concerns that these at first benign, perhaps even good-intention-seeming standards must be treated with EXTREME caution. I shared my primary fears around these standards last October in my post All Children Left Behind - Common Standards for Our Student's Past.

Coleman may not be the most well-known education player in his family — his mom is president of Bennington College in Vermont — but his quiet work behind the scenes on the proposed Common Core standards make him among the most influential figures in American education today. A classicist and Rhodes Scholar who now runs his own consulting firm (after founding and selling a successful education data and assessment company), Coleman wants students to learn to think by analyzing what they're reading. Sounds obvious, but it's a radical departure from today's prevailing practices in classrooms. Forty states have agreed to adopt the standards, but key details, including who will govern the Common Core and what tests will be used, still need to be worked out.

Susan Ohanian - October 19, 2011 â€œ[A]s you grow up in this world you realize people really donâ€™t give a shit about what you feel or what you think.â€ Thus, Common Core Standards architect David Coleman delivered  the core pedagogy of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to educators gathered at the New York State Department of Education in April 2011. Listen to a few more of Colemanâ€™s proclamations and you have to ask yourself if this is a man of deep experience and rectitude or just a cuckoo bird let loose on a hapless bunch of educrats who donâ€™t know how to voice dissent.

The war on education (and reading): David Coleman's common core of nonsense Susan Ohanion, Daily Censored - Common Core Curriculum Standards entrepreneur David Coleman is barnstorming the country claiming that schools need to deemphasize fiction and obliterate any semblance of reader response. No feelings, no imaginations, no speculations: Just the facts, kid. What children need, asserts Coleman, is a close reading of “informational text.” That’s what he calls non-fiction. No opinion, no flights of fancy.
