Children's authors to shed light on the CCSS
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 09:29 AM

As the Common Core State Standards will impact instruction in so many different academic areas, parents may have questions regarding how different subjects will be affected.

Literature, for example, is one subject parents may be confused about as the full implementation of the CCSS draws near. A popular Common Core myth is that the Standards do not place enough focus on fiction and literature, according to the CCSS' website. While students will be required to read critical content, such as classic myths and America's founding documents, they will also read whatever texts their teachers believe will benefit their education.

In California, parents will have an opportunity to learn more about the Common Core's effects on literature at the 61st annual Breakfast with the Authors event, which will be held Oct. 5, Noozhawk reported. This session, hosted by the Santa Barbara County Education Office, will bring children's authors and illustrators together to speak about the Standards and field questions from those in attendance.

Those who have an interest in attending the event have until Sept. 27 to register.
