I wish I could think that the content-focused curriculum which CC supports (and supposedly requires) will not be subverted by the "critical thinking," "21st-century", process-focused, transferable skills mindset which ed schools, admins and teachers have espoused for decades. Apparently, some schools/teachers are already teaching Tier 2 vocab words as explicit vocab study, instead of teaching them in the context of rich content (fr Out in Left Field-comments). They just don't care about content. Sigh...
