Standards or Tasks?

Common Core K-12, Reading 9-10, #7:

Compare and contrast the representation of a subject or key scene in two different artistic mediums (e.e., Auden's “Musée de Beaux Arts" and Breughel’s Landscape with the Fall of Icarus).

Nice assignment! But is it a standard?

Also, why does that sound much more demanding than the capstone "College and Career Readiness" standard?

Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
