Abstract concepts are supported through visuals and controlled language. Dialogue supports both images and content concepts. For example, in Neuschwander's Pastry School in Paris: An Adventure in Capacity the concepts of measurement liquids and solids and an understanding capacity are carefully explained through dialogue, visuals, and a recipe.
In-depth approach to an aspect, if not the complete topic, by building background. For example, Mochizuki's Passage to Freedom: The Sugihara Story tells the true story of a Japanese diplomat stationed in Lithuania in who helped Jews escape the Nazis.

In , 48 states and the District of Columbia joined together to launch the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Their mission: to develop common academic standards in English and mathematics that would help ensure that “all students, regardless of where they live, are graduating high school prepared for college, career, and life.”. The Common Core State Standards Initiative is an educational initiative from that details what K–12 students throughout the United States should know in English language arts and mathematics at the conclusion of each school grade.
