A Framework That Supports the Goals of the Common Core State Standards


Voices Literature & Writing promises to help achieve the goals of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy. Here's how:

"By reading a story or nonfiction selection aloud, teachers allow children to experience written language without the burden of decoding, granting them access to content that they may not be able to read and understand by themselves. Children are then free to focus their mental energy on the words and ideas presented in the text, and they will eventually be better prepared to tackle rich written content on their own." - Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy, Appendix A, 27
