Teaching Channel: This Week's Playlist - A Common Core Lesson for ELLs

Teaching Channel: This Week's Playlist - A Common Core Lesson for ELLs | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Like me, you’ve probably noticed that almost every educational website or email you read is talking about Common Core State Standards resources. And rightly so. These standards have and will continue to have an impact on our schools and classrooms. So with all the choices available, whom should you trust? And which resources really offer the guidance you’re looking for?

To begin with, I always want to know the purpose of the resource. Is it to sell, to inform, or to teach? Although there will certainly be times when purchasing materials or resources may be important to me, right now I’m still convinced that I need to be a student of the standards. I need resources that expose the gaps in the standards, put them into plain language, and unpack the technical terms. I also appreciate the sources that address the myths that are often perpetuated by the standards: in other words, knowing what they aren’t is just as powerful as knowing what they are.

PARCC, Common Core, Close Reading and ELLs

PARCC, Common Core, Close Reading and ELLs | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Close reading of texts with ELLs presents more challenges beyond balancing building background knowledge with working with the actual text. Such challenges for educators of ELLs include choosing appropriate grade level texts, supplying supplementary texts at different reading levels, scaffolding instruction, and creating text depending questions that ELLs can access.

Deb Gardner's curator insight, February 24, 2013 5:33 AM

Helpful article that briefly compares three approaches/definitions of close reading:

  • Tim Shanahan
  • PARCC
  • Aspen Institute


Also considers the role of background knowledge when ELLs are working with complex texts. Several excellent resources embedded in the post.

ELLs and Complex Text in the Common Core: An EdWeek Webinar

ELLs and Complex Text in the Common Core: An EdWeek Webinar | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Tomorrow, I'll be moderating an edweek.org webinar that will highlight some instructional strategies and supports to help teachers bridge the gap between acquiring language and truly mastering academic content for their students who are English-language learners.

This, of course, is driven by the widespread adoption and implementation of the Common Core State Standards that will, more than before, demand sophisticated uses of language that will challenge ELLs and their teachers.
