The Left Makes Its Move on Common Core

There is no history curriculum attached to Common Core. Some of the English standards focusing on reading, writing, and image analysis do impact Social Studies, but there are no content/information related standards listed within Common Core. The problem you have is with your school, not Common Core.
Thanks. Appreciate the stats

Larry King: What Media Bias?

If Larry King says it, it must be true. I can now sleep peacefully tonight.
Typical lib. Say the same thing over and over again no matter the issue. Flagged for being dull and boring.
I'm with Joe on this one. I can't see any reason why he shouldn't run for President, either. It will help maintain job security for comedians, waste Democrat time and money during the primaries, remind independents of how goofy Democrat ideas are, etc., I definitely think this guy should run. Getting elected, however...no reasons supporting that idea.
Great. Israel needs to relinquish Jerusalem. When people speak of pre-1967 borders, it means that what most people think of as Jerusalem, the old city within the walls, the location of so many important Jewish and Christian holy sites, will be turned over to the Palestinians. This is no good & unacceptable. Why don't we begin with the official recognition of the state of Israel & a concrete denouncing of terrorism with arrests and convictions. Also, include the removal of the mosque at the home of Mary & Joseph in Nazareth. Then, maybe, we can talk about boundary issues.
That is his point. The irony is directed towards the left.

I will help Bob. If you look at the English standards you will see that freshman and sophomores in high school need to be able to identify the main idea of informational texts. The standard sounds great. The problem is this an ACT skill that will earn a 21 score for college level students trying to identify the main idea of a paragraph within a simple informational passage. This standard is unobtainable and a time waster. The skill demands 24-27 mastery on an ACT test while the students are working to master 15-18 level skills. This standard fails to help students grow properly, frustrating everyone involved int the learning process. CCSS is inherently flawed because of this type of thinking.

Yes, the answer is 5. However, many students at that age level will get the answer wrong because they don't understand the question. The phrasing is clumsy and does not lead most students to divide 90 by 18. These students may understand the math, but their reading comprehension is not strong enough to understand the problem. The math is age appropriate, the reading is not and should be improved. Understanding this leads to an understanding of what is right and wrong with Common Core.
