KEY POINTS IN READING

  • —Stresses complexity in reading and developing reading comprehension skills.
  • —Students should be exposed to a diverse array of classic and contemporary literature.
  • Ensuring that student’s are exposed to classic myths and stories from around the world, foundational U.S. documents, seminal works of American literatureand the writings of Shakespeare. The standards appropriately defer the many remaining decisions about what and how to teach to states, districts, and schools.

KEY POINTS IN WRITING

  • —The ability to write logical arguments based on substantive claims, sound reasoning, and relevant evidence is a cornerstone of the writing standards, with opinion writing—a basic form of argument—extending down into the earliest grades.
  • —Research—both short, focused projects (such as those commonly required in the workplace) and longer term in depth research —is emphasized throughout the standards but most prominently in the writing strand since a written analysis and presentation of findings is so often critical.
  • —Annotated samples of student writing accompany the standards and help establish adequate performance levels in writing arguments, informational/explanatory texts, and narratives in the various grades.
