Yeah, the common core tries to force informational texts than literary texts. The recommended literature is pretty much the same as the standard classroom.
The one thing I dread is the possible presence of a “Common Core adviser” appearing at my school and asking to enter my class. I’ll have to deny it as their presence would violate current FERPA laws.
What is with this word, “core”? What the heck does it mean and why are educationalizers constantly saying it?
