Last month, NC Department of Public Instruction (DPI) gave a presentation to the Common Core Academic Standards Review Commission (ASRC) on the English language arts portion of the standards.
This month, in the DPI newsletter, it appears updates have been made:
- Unpacking Standards For English Language Arts Updated
Updated Unpacking Standards for all grades for English Language Arts are now available at http://www.ncpublicschools.org/acre/standards/common-core-tools/#unela. Unpacking Standards are documents for educators that define the skills students must master to accomplish specific goals. The documents list the essential standards for each grade level and subject, and provide detailed examples on how to teach a standard.
I have inquired with DPI as to where a summary of the changes can be found. When I receive a reply, I will update this article accordingly.
This information should be shared with the ASRC.
