The Common Core State Standards and Early Language Learning: Let's Do This!
Haxhi, Jessica
Learning Languages, v19 n1 p13-15 Win 2014
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are here to stay--for awhile at least--and students will be tested on their ability to meet these standards. In order for students to succeed--in order for them to be College and Career Ready--they will need the support of educators working together to give them practice in meeting these standards. World language teachers have been working with shared, nationwide standards since 1996. They have already gone through instructional shifts such as unit planning, new definitions of standards, high expectations for student engagement, high quality assessment, and incorporating authentic materials. This article discusses how world language teachers might be uniquely equipped to help support English Language Arts (ELA) educators through the six instructional shifts needed to meet CCSS ELA standards.
