The Arts, the Common Core, and English Language Development in the Primary Grades

by Christa Mulker Greenfader & Liane Brouillette
This study examines the speaking abilities of K2 Hispanic ELs who were randomly assigned to an arts-based professional development program that emphasized oral English-language interactions. Additional review suggests that the activities corresponded well to Common Core speaking and listening standards, but concerns are raised that a lack of speaking assessments in the Common Core may result in a subsequent distortion of K2 instruction.
