The Gettysburg Address: Literary Nonfiction and the Common Core

The Gettysburg Address: Literary Nonfiction and the Common Core | 3rd grade fractions | Scoop.it

The CCSS mandates that by the end of high school, 70% of what students read should be informational texts -- specifically, complex and non-narrative literary nonfiction. Furthermore, students should be able to identify central ideas and articulate their development, summarize, analyze, draw inferences, identify an author's purpose, evaluate the effectiveness of rhetorical features, and figure out the meaning of words. In short, the CCSS has reclaimed a technique popular in the 1940s, close reading, or sustained interpretation of, in particular, the wording of a text.

good article, although I would argue that videos, simulations, photos, etc. are not just important to capture students' interest, but also to build some limited background knowledge about the text. Background knowledge that doesn't undercut the reading experience!
