About Common Core

Common Core . . . Now referred to as Washington State Standards

Reading Information Text:

The Common Core demands that students do more than reading throughout their day, not just in English/Language Arts. By the time they reach 12th grade, the CCSS expect that 70% of a student’s reading will be from non-fiction. Thankfully, in today’s publishing world, there is terrific narrative non-fiction available that supports all content areas, and that teens will want to read.
