Common Core State Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects

The 6-12 literacy standards for Science and technical Subjects are not meant to replace the content standards in the sciences but rather to supplement them. The emphasis in the literacy standards is for students to learn to read and write in English Language Arts and to further develop reading and writing skills specific to science and technical subjects content.
