However, in response to concerns about American student achievement and just how prepared students are for college and careers, education leaders in 48 states, along with the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), have written a set of standards for student across the U.S. The common core state standards were released in 2010. Now, 44 states are working to implement them by 2013-2014. The Common Core Standards are State-Driven The common core state standards are a set of learning skills that all American students should achieve, not a federal curriculum. The Standards are a Progression In general, standards set a progression of skills that students learn as they move through school.

The NCTE Definition of 21st Century Literacies Updated February 2013Adopted by the NCTE Executive Committee, February 15, 2008 Literacy has always been a collection of cultural and communicative practices shared among members of particular groups. As society and technology change, so does literacy. Because technology has increased the intensity and complexity of literate environments, the 21st century demands that a literate person possess a wide range of abilities and competencies, many literacies. These literacies are multiple, dynamic, and malleable. This position statement may be printed, copied, and disseminated without permission from NCTE.
Common Standards Ignite Debate Over Prereading Published Online: April 24, 2012 Published in Print: April 25, 2012, as Common Standards Ignite Debate Over Student 'Prereading' Exercises Sparked by the Common Core State Standards, teachers and literacy experts are arguing about the role of a time-honored pillar of English/language arts instruction: classroom activities designed to help students understand what they are about to read. The attacks on—and defenses of—"prereading" are unfolding largely in cyberspace, through online forums, blogs, and email exchanges. That trio has created an impression in some quarters that the intent of the standards is to "ban"—in the words of one blogger—prereading and instead ask students to approach texts "cold," with no upfront assistance. Even as the standards' authors insist that their aim is not to abolish prereading, but to curtail and revamp it, the debates persist, pitting schools of thought on reading instruction against one another.

P21 Common Core Toolkit A Guide to Aligning the Common Core State Standards with the Framework for 21st Century Skills For the first time in U.S. education history, a majority of states (44 to date) have agreed to a common baseline for academic knowledge and college readiness skills. The release of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in 2010 has been an important turning point in the standards movement. Over the past decade, many organizations such as P21 have advocated for standards that adequately address both the core academic knowledge and the complex thinking skills that are required for success in college, life and career in the 21st century. Guiding Implementation of CCSSHow does the P21 Common Core Toolkit help states, districts and schools implement Common Core State Standards and support ongoing 21st century skills initiatives? A Comprehensive Guide Offering a variety of tools and timely resources, the P21 Common Core Toolkit provides:
Reading in the Middle Grades - Reading Comprehension Reading comprehensively is the process in which readers read a text and understand what they have read. They are able to grasp the main point of the text and evaluate what work. Comprehensive reading is imperative for students making their way through the middle grades, high school, college, and eventually the adult world. Too often students are only learning to read for information; they are unable to analyze and think complexly about what they have read. Thus, reading comprehension encourages proficiency both for the reader's experience and their work.  What is Read: 1. How it is Read: 1.
