ProfHacker A few weeks ago my ProfHacker colleague Mark Sample posted a wonderful article on his personal blog, “On Reading Aloud in the Classroom.” In that post, Mark takes on the perception shared by many in our field that “Asking students to take turns reading a text aloud offends our sensibilities as literature professors.

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. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life. The standards establish guidelines for English language arts (ELA) as well as for literacy in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects.
