Language and the Common Core State Standards
Language pervades the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) even in those instances where the word is not explicitly stated.
This paper, written by Leo van Lier and WestEd’s Aída Walqui, examines the place and role of language within the new standards by examining:
- CCSS comments on the topic of language
- Language as part of the English Language Arts
- Language demands in other subject areas, specifically mathematics and science
This paper is part of Stanford University’s Understanding Language initiative.
