Just in case you missed the NCLE Smartbrief articlelinks regarding the Common Core "controversy" about literature and non-fiction reading ratios:



http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/wp/2013/01/10/what-english-classes-should-look-like-in-common-core-era/

This article contains a guest blog by Carol Jago who served on the CC framework committee and assures teachers of English that they are to primarily teach and promote literature.

[http://cdn.smartbrief.com/images/briefs2/common/storyicons2/icon_blog.gif]English class under the Common Core State Standards will not reduce students' reading of literature in favor of technical documents, but entice them to read more of all works -- from poetry to literary nonfiction, writes Carol Jago, associate director of the California Reading and Literature Project. For students to read independently and proficiently, they must read more often than just at school, Jago writes in this guest blog post. "To reverse this trend we need to make English classrooms vibrant places where compelling conversations about great works of literature take place every day," says Jago, past president of the National Council of Teachers of English.

  *   Common core guide says students should read more of everything:   The Common Core State Standards demands a dramatic increase in overall reading, according to a new guide, but does not necessarily mean that nonfiction works will replace the fictional titles that traditionally have been part of the curriculum, education reporter Catherine Gewertz writes in this blog post. "Because literacy is now a shared responsibility among all teachers, reading should dramatically increase in all content areas," the guide states. "While English teachers may use more informational text, students may actually read more literature not less."

  *   Pa. teachers adjust reading instruction with frequent assessments<http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/efgjClvdzfCfrTzbCidmzoBVFRME?format=standard>
The North Penn School District in Lansdale, Pa., is using a $1.17 million federal Keystones to Opportunity grant to improve literacy education throughout the school district. Teachers at all grade levels have made changes, including increased assessments and adjusted literacy curriculum, all in an effort to ensure students are ready for college and careers when they graduate, said district Assistant Superintendent Diane Holben. "We're doing a lot of assessment and we use that data to look at each kid and see who they are as a learner," said fourth-grade teacher Jennifer Bruno.

Mississippi lawmakers are looking at reform efforts promoted in Florida by former Gov. Jeb Bush and his Foundation for Excellence in Education as a way to overhaul Mississippi schools. The five components of the "Florida model" are holding schools accountable for results, higher standards for students, rewarding schools success, more school choice and easier certifications for teachers. "One thing that is very clear and very definite is we cannot continue to do business the way we have been doing it the last few years," said state Rep. John Moore, Republican chairman of the Mississippi House Education Committee.

[http://cdn.smartbrief.com/images/briefs2/common/storyicons2/icon_blog.gif]Common Core State Standards may require teachers to make changes in how they teach, but coaches can help them get there by taking small steps, transformational leadership coach Elena Aguilar writes. She suggests school leaders help teachers identify their current skills and additional skills needed, then provide appropriate professional development. "It's daunting and scary and has potential for improving learning outcomes and experiences for children, as long as we map the journey that our teachers will need to take in order to fulfill this potential," Aguilar writes in this blog post.

In this post, Jennifer Isgitt writes, "I just finished reading "Quiet, the Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking," by Susan Cain. In this book, Cain challenges the American preference for gregariousness and action. She presents a strong defense of the introverted personality (without discounting the strengths of extroverts) and the caution, wisdom, and reflectiveness introverts can offer to any culture. I have to admit that reading this book has been a healing experience for me."
