Curriculum Really Does Matter, and Other Thoughts

A few assorted tidbits for you to get your week started:

The Shanker blog reflects on the way too many people confuse standards with curriculum. (Hat tip to Joanne Jacobs.)

Utah, which tentatively adopted the common standards way back in June, makes it final.

The National Review revisits the testing mess in New York. (Refresher? Here is the New York Times story, with tons of reader comments.)

Edutopia blogger Rebecca Alber writes about teaching literacy across all content areas, something emphasized both in the common standards and in a major report on adolescent literacy.

The ETS reports that progress has stalled in closing the achievement gap between white and black students.

And Dan Willingham continues his ruminations on the common standards at the Washington Post's Answer Sheet blog.
