Educators at a school in Louisiana say the implementation of the Common Core State Standards has enhanced their school's focus on writing -- not only in English, but across the curriculum, with a focus on narrative, opinion and informational writing.

"Now we are training them at (age) nine to write a claim and back it up with evidence."
