 *Ayanna Cooper* incorporates social justice into the Common Core for
English learners

To date, 43 states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the
Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) have adopted the Common
Core State Standards (CCSS, 2015). Educators at all levels are working to
ensure full and thorough implementation of these standards, which offer the
opportunity to self-assess and revise initial instructional goals with a
focus on improving outcomes for all students but especially those
identified as English learners (ELs). The adoption of CCSS has undoubtedly
fuelled the conversation as to how to address culturally and linguistically
diverse learners in light of the rigorous standards. As a language
educator, I am excited that the CCSS bring forth the need for all domains
of language — speaking, writing, reading, and listening — to be emphasized
and a permanent part of instructional practice; hence, all teachers are
language teachers.
