Implementing California's Language Arts Curriculum Framework
A cornerstone of California's education reform strategy is the creation of a series of high quality curriculum frameworks designed to upgrade K–12 education in the state. The frameworks raise expectations of students' knowledge and understanding of language arts, mathematics, science, and history/social science. They focus on learning for understanding, as well as thinking, problem solving, and using knowledge in practical, real-life situations. More specifically, the goals of the frameworks are to introduce a curriculum which can be used for all students and produce students who
- know how to learn;
- can use knowledge to analyze issues and solve problems; and
- can apply that knowledge to actual problems of the economy and society.
