Literacy and the Common Core - The Role of Writing!

Recently I spoke to an assistant principal at Brockton High School.  For those of you who are familiar with ASCD, you know Brockton HS has been praised for the model it has been using over the last 11 years - assuring increased student success. 

The administration shared the following chart with me. 

Although this has been written for high school,  I suggest we all consider how it might impact other levels, K-12.

As you can see, literacy has been integrated throughout all content areas.  With the advent of common core, this format is a helpful guide.  Enjoy.

Thanks so much for sharing this chart. We are hearing a lot lately about the common core, and school wide, we are spending a lot of time emphasizing writing. It's great to see such a clear, user friendly image of how students will be expected to demonstrate their understanding under the common core.
