Two Minutes w/Dr Yahya: On Common Core Curriculum and Methodology in American Education Style:Learning Fiction or Non-Fiction Texts
Hasan Yahya, M.A and Ph.D, Educational Administration
Ph.D Comparative Sociology
PART ONE: THE IDEA OF PLANNING AND EXECUTING “COMMON CORE” in the United States schools was raised to overcome deficiency of learning according to old methods compared with world nations. Many professional-educational sites and special discussions were found on the internet, for example, lessonplanet.com. In this series we cover some issues concerning subjects covered in the “Common Core” education and testing in that site.
Describing changes in Common Core education, under the Title : Fiction or Nonfiction? Considering the Common Core’s Emphasis on Informational Text reads: “Nothing aids in comprehension more than an explanation and understanding of WHY things are done. “ This statement negate old system emphasizes explanation and understanding WHAT changes are done.
Why this statement changed? I think the purpose is changing from what students read and how they read to reach why they read. In short, analyzing the context in its totality rather than word by word.
Address why the Common Core requires the reading percentages that it established and analyze how this affects your readers. Learners read informational pieces concerning the CCSS and discuss what they want to read, and should read in school. They also review the anchor standards for reading literature and informational texts, and decide on how it is best balanced. An advice for teachers, then followed saying: “Adapt this resource for the specific issues in your class, and let the understanding begin.” AAE
