No matter the age, we love to be read to! There is a different type of thinking, understanding, living the story. Providing students with the opportunity to listen and probe as they listen is very different than reading and probing.

CCSS Reading: Two Common Core Blunders To Avoid

CCSS Reading: Two Common Core Blunders To Avoid | CCSS | Scoop.it

Great article that gives practical suggestions about how content area teachers in Science and Social Studies can become more focused on reading and how ELA teachers can complement fictional texts with non-fiction articles.

 

"Please, let's not rob students of a well-rounded education just because the Common Core seems to have added some new focal points to literacy instruction, making it seem like there's "more to cover." Collaborate across disciplines instead!"

 

And direct from the CCSS Initiative website:

 

"Myth: English teachers will be asked to teach science and social studies reading materials.

 

Fact: With the Common Core ELA Standards, English teachers will still teach their students literature as well as literary non-fiction. However, because college and career readiness overwhelmingly focuses on complex texts outside of literature, these standards also ensure students are being prepared to read, write, and research across the curriculum, including in history and science. These goals can be achieved by ensuring that teachers in other disciplines are also focusing on reading and writing to build knowledge within their subject areas."
