Question: What is the goal in reading instruction for the Common Core State Standards?
Answer: “The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts …2010….draw attention to text in an unprecedented manner. The goal of the CCSS is to prepare U.S students for college and their future careers, in part by increasing levels of text difficulty from the early grades through high school.” P. 235.
