‘In’ and ‘out’ of common standards

What’s In and What’s Out explains how Common Core Standards sees English Language Arts. The most controversial, according to Curriculum Matters: Prereading is out and “reading and rereading” is in.

What is “out” is “poor practice in prereading,” explained Sandra Alberti of Student Achievement Partners. “Effective practice in prereading” is in.

Perhaps the standards could be simplified:  Good teaching is in! Bad teaching is out!
