And now as president of the College Board, you will be able to align the content of the SAT with the Common Core.

John… I’ve been digging into this, and you might be interested in this comment I just posted on this Ravitch post:
It turns out Coleman has possibly contradicted himself. In the Huffington Post article, Coleman says:
“Said plainly, stories, drama, poetry, and other literature account for the majority of reading that students will do in the high school ELA classroom.”
But in another article by Coleman:
“2. Range and Quality of Texts: The Common Core State Standards require a greater focus on informational text in elementary school and literary nonfiction in ELA classes in grades 6–12.”
That article written by Coleman is the Publishers’ Criteria for the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy, 3-12.
I found the article on the Delaware Department of Education’s Common Core web page. The article is billed as ” designed to guide educators in providing support as they work to align materials and instruction with the Common Core State Standard.” So this is what Delaware is telling its teachers, administrators, and publishers about the 70/30 fiction requirements.
