This video features a discussion between NYS Commissioner of Education John B. King Jr., David Coleman (contributing author to the Common Core) and Kate Gerson (a Sr. Fellow with the Regents Research Fund) addressing ELA Shift 5 – Writing from Sources. By unpacking Shift 5, the discussion addresses the challenges and benefits of putting a renewed emphasis on writing from sources rather than keeping the current focus on personal narrative.
