Inside English/Language Arts Standards: What's in a Grade?
Valencia, Sheila W.; Wixson, Karen K.
Reading Research Quarterly, v36 n2 p202-17 Apr-Jun 2001
Uses recent evaluations of English/Language Arts standards to make three points: (1) these evaluations (by organizations such as the American Federation of Teachers, the Fordham Foundation, the Council for Basic Education, and Achieve) are not nonpartisan; (2) such activities are unlikely to move forward the quest for standards-based reform; and (3) educators must become a force in standards-based reform.
