Reframing Equity under Common Core: A Commentary on the Text Exemplar List for Grades 9-12
Schieble, Melissa
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v13 n1 p155-168 May 2013
This article provides a commentary on the text exemplar list for Grade bands 9-12 included in the Common Core documents in the United States. It is argued that a critical literacy perspective supports ELA teachers to assert a professional voice when making complex text selections based on diverse students' needs and interests. Implications for how this perspective reframes goals for equity, working both within and beyond the text exemplar list, are addressed.
