Why Literature Lovers Hate Common Core
Please join us for Cascade’s monthly Policy Picnic led by publications director Kathryn Hickok on September 17, at noon.
Kathryn will discuss reasons many teachers say the Common Core State Standards are taking the language out of language arts and the love out of literacy. Common Core supporters argue the new standards will improve students’ literacy, but will they do the opposite instead? What can parents do about it?
Admission is free. Please bring your own lunch. Coffee and cookies will be served. Space is limited to sixteen guests on a first come, first served basis, so sign up early.
