Intent of Common CoreIntent of Common Core
The Standards guide schools to provide shared
instruction in reading, writing, speaking, listening,
and language. The K–5 standards include
expectations for reading, writing, speaking, listening,
and language applicable to a range of subjects,
including but not limited to ELA. The grades 6–12
standards are divided into two sections, one for ELA
and the other for history/social studies, science, and
technical subjects. This division reflects the place of
ELA teachers in developing students’ literacy skills
while at the same time recognizing that teachers in
other areas must have a role in this development as

Judy is working at a retail store over summer
break. A customer buys a $50 shirt that is on
sale for 20% off. Judy computes the discount,
then adds sales tax of 10%, and tells the
customer how much he owes. The customer
insists that Judy first add the sales tax and then
apply the discount. He is convinced that this way
he will save more money because the discount
amount will be larger.
