The revised curriculum for my 8th grade ELA class is based on the current state and national standards. Since New York State is adopting the Common Core Standards there needs to be some revision and thought to how the current curriculum can be adapted to a different set of standards. The Common Core Standards do not just ask students to understand or have knowledge of skills but to analyze, apply, and recreate. The new curriculum must also have students going beyond the current state standards and as educators we must ask our students to analyze, apply, and recreate in our classrooms.
