What are the shifts?




Common Core for School Librarians


NYC Dept. of Education

For the 2012-13 school year, teachers should explore ways to focus on these shifts:

  • In math require fluency, application and conceptual understanding; and
  • In ELA, social studies, and science require students to ground reading, writing, and discussion in evidence from text.
Grades 9-10 Literacy: The Power of New Media
The Power of New Media is the culminating task in a 2-3 week unit that uses the topic of new media and its impact on youth to and on the world as a means to teach students how to analyze and investigate informational texts. Students demonstrate their mastery of the content and their ability to synthesize informational across texts by writing an essay on the effects of media use on young people.
English Language Arts (ELA)

Grades 9-10 Literacy: Speeches - Arguments and Methods
This task asks students to write an argumentative essay in which they make a case for the speaker who they think makes the strongest argument to promote racial equality. Students consider each speaker’s use of claims, counterclaims, reasons, evidence, and methods when making their determination.
