English Language Arts

th-3.jpg

On August 2nd, 2010, the California State Board of Education adopted the K-12 California Common Core Standards based on the recommendations of the Academic Content Standards Commission. The Common Core Standards define the rigorous skills and knowledge students need to be global thinkers.

The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy build on the best of existing standards and reflect the skills and knowledge students will need to succeed in college, career, and life. Understanding how the standards differ from previous standards—and the necessary shifts they call for—is essential to implementing the standards well.

 

The following are key shifts called for by the Common Core:

 

1. Regular practice with complex texts and their academic language

2. Reading, writing, and speaking, grounded in evidence from texts, both literary and informational

3. Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction

 

For more information please refer to the California Department of Education

 

or contact your child's teacher or school administrators.
