Schools usually focus on teaching comprehension skills instead of general knowledge—even though education researchers know better. Every two years, education-policy wonks gear up for what has become a time-honored ritual: the release of the Nation’s Report Card. via Pocket

If students arrive at high school without knowing who won the Civil War they’ll have a hard time understanding a textbook passage about Reconstruction.

...teachers have their students practice skills and strategies like “finding the main idea” or “making inferences.”

Rarely do the topics connect: Students might read a book about bridges one day, zebras the next, and clouds the day after that.

The best way... is to expand their knowledge and vocabulary by teaching them history, science, literature, and the arts, using curricula that that guide kids through a logical sequence from one year to the next."
