What's Hot: Texas and the Nation

Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v4 n1 p2-8 Sum 2016
For two decades the International Literacy Association (ILA) has published the "What's Hot, What's Not in Literacy Survey." In the last five years, the hottest topics featured on the lists have largely been connected to the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards (ELA CCSS)--a publication produced by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers (2010). This consistent relationship with CCSS remains true for many of the "very hot" topics on the 2016 list. With so much focus being placed on the ELA CCSS, some Texas educators are wondering how the "hot" and "very hot" topics relate to Texas classrooms. In this article, the authors first look at how the survey is constructed and conducted. They then look at how some of these "hot" and "very hot topics" relate to Texas educators.
