A note from the New MN Language Arts standards:
Note on range and content of student speaking and listening
To become college and career ready, students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations—as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner—built around important content in various domains. They must be able to contribute appropriately to these conversations, to make comparisons and contrasts, and to analyze and synthesize a multitude of ideas in accordance with the standards of evidence appropriate to a particular discipline. Whatever their intended major or profession, high school graduates will depend heavily on their ability to listen attentively to others so that they are able to build on others’ meritorious ideas while expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
New technologies have broadened and expanded the role that speaking and listening play in acquiring and sharing knowledge and have tightened their link to other forms of communication. The Internet has accelerated the speed at which connections between speaking, listening, reading, and writing can be made, requiring that students be ready to use these modalities nearly simultaneously. Technology itself is changing quickly, creating a new urgency for students to be adaptable in response to change.

New 2010 Minnesota Language Arts Standards

Math Teacher on Why We Need Common Core Standards

Language ArtsThe study of Language Arts teaches students how to effectively communicate and to use related knowledge and contexts to synthesize information into meaningful messages. The 2010
Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in English Language Artsuse the
Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjectsas a base. Additional standards were added to address state statutory requirements and best practices. Appendices to the standards and guidelines for how to apply the standards for English Language Learners and students with disabilities are available on the Common Core website.

Districts are required to implement the 2010 standards no later than the 2012-2013 school year. Contact Charon Tierney, state English Language Arts Specialist, at 651-582-8643.
