The Common Core asks students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies.
This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life. Because students must learn to read, write, speak, listen, and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, the standards promote the literacy skills and concepts required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines.
States determine how to incorporate these standards into their existing standards for those subjects or adopt them as content area literacy standards.
They include critical-thinking skills and the ability to closely and attentively read texts in a way that will help them understand and enjoy complex works of literature. Students will learn to use cogent reasoning and evidence collection skills that are essential for success in college, career, and life.
The standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person who is prepared for success in the 21st century.Providing educators and students access to the highest quality practices and resources in reading and language arts instruction.
