The Common Core ELA Regents
  • One of the major curricular shifts demanded by
    the Common Core for English Language Arts is a
    focus on writing from sources using evidence.
  • The CCLS requires that informational text, in
    particular literary nonfiction, take on a more
    dominant role in high school English Language
    Arts classes than they have before.
