Northwest Local Schools in Ohio has created a separate middle-school course, called Fifth Core, by adding 30 minutes to English courses. Developed in response to the Common Core State Standards, the course will be taught by English, social studies and science teachers, with a focus on teaching middle-school students how to research and write papers. "These new standards require our kids to do research, to look up sources and think about them, make an opinion and put it in writing in a clear way," said Mark Farmer, assistant superintendent.
