Common Core State Standards Initiative

Common Core State Standards Initiative
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy. Building on the excellent foundation of standards states have laid, the Common Core State Standards are the first step in providing our young people with a high-quality education. It should be clear to every student, parent, and teacher what the standards of success are in every school.

'Barrelhouse Words: A Blues Dialect Dictionary' Book Excerpt Introduction This idiosyncratic, discursive dictionary was assembled to unravel the most unusual, obscure, and curious words, expressions, and proper or place names found on race records, the music industry trade term for recordings intended for blacks. As a special category, such records were promoted between 1923 and 1949, when the term was replaced in Billboard by its own clumsy confection, "rhythm and blues," put forth in the interests of appearing less racist, and to retire a term that was associated with musical smut. Most race recordings consisted of blues songs, which served as the popular music of black Americans from around the turn of the twentieth century until (roughly) the outset of the Second World War, a span I have designated as the blues era. Blues songs did not operate along the lines of conventional song composition, as it existed from the 1890s through the 1950s in what has become known as the Tin Pan Alley era of popular music.

Math Programs: How They Rate on Common-Core Alignment Based on market share and states’ recommendations, EdReports.org selected 20 math instructional series to review for common-core alignment. (For reporting purposes, K-5 and 6-8 texts from the same publisher were considered separate series.) Small teams of educators scored the digital and print texts on focus, coherence, rigor, and usability. In addition to individual grade-level ratings, EdReports.org gave summative ratings for each grade band (K-2, 3-5, and 6-8).

English Language Arts Standards The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (“the standards”) represent the next generation of K–12 standards designed to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life by the time they graduate from high school. The Common Core asks students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read.

What the class size research REALLY says. - Education Writers Association As school system budgets tighten, more journalists find themselves writing about—and misinterpreting the research on—class size. Nearly every education writer knows about Project STAR, the only large-scale, random-assignment experiment that has been conducted on class size. Over four years in the late 1980s in Tennessee, researchers assigned children in 79 schools to classrooms ranging from 13 to 25 students.They found significant academic advantages in reading and math for students in small kindergarten and first-grade classes, and the effects diminished in second and third grades. We do not know much about is what kind of difference class size makes outside the parameters of that experiment, at least not with the certainty that comes with the methodological rigor of an experiment like STAR.
