Satisfactory Essays
E. D. Hirsch, founder of Core Knowledge Foundation and leader of the cultural literacy movement, “argues for giving every student a broad body of general knowledge… in order to function effectively in modern society” (Giddings, p. 109). Hirsch’s work stand in stark contrast to Dewey’s. Hirsch’s ideas can be seen in today’s nationwide standardized Common Core, although he did not participate in its writing. However, “cultural literacy must be accompanied by critical literacy” (Giddings, p. 112) such as Bloom’s taxonomy, which has also gained popularity.
