Strauss: Common Core calls for kids to read books that ‘frustrate’ them. Is that a good idea?

Education News from Washington Post - Mon, 09/22/2014 - 4:00am

This post is connected to two recent pieces I published about the Common Core State Standards. This post is a transcript of a debate on the Core that was recently held in New York; arguing for the Core were Carmel Martin and Mike Petrilli and arguing against were Carol Burris and Rick Hess. And this piece was written after the debate by Burris who takes issue with four arguments that Core supporters frequently make. In that piece, Burris challenges Petrilli to produce some research for arguments he was making about how children learn to read. Petrilli did send her some links, which she turned over to a literacy expert to review. This is the result of the review, written by Russ Walsh, coordinator of College Reading at Rider University, Lawrenceville, New Jersey.

He blogs on literacy instruction and issues related to public education at Russ on Reading.
