Summer Reading and the Rich/Poor Achievement Gap | An Educator Responds to Questions | School Library Journal

Summer Reading and the Rich/Poor Achievement Gap | An Educator Responds to Questions | School Library Journal | Common Core at SRHS | Scoop.it

Schools sending students off on summer vacation and public libraries gearing up to get kids excited about summer reading programs are both in the business of making sure children become fluent, engaged readers. Unfortunately, the results of those efforts aren’t necessarily equal for kids in lower-income situations. Richard L. Allington, co-author of Summer Reading: Closing the Rich/Poor Achievement Gap (Teachers College and International Reading Association, 2013) talks about the reasons for that disparity and offers research-based suggestions for solving the problem, with particular ideas for librarians.

Pam Colburn Harland's insight:

 I want to join the librarians "who don't give a hoot about lost books" round table. In fact, lately I've been celebrating lost books thinking "they like the books I picked out so much, they are stealing them!"

Educational Leadership:Common Core: Now What?:Analyzing Complex Texts

Educational Leadership:Common Core: Now What?:Analyzing Complex Texts | Common Core at SRHS | Scoop.it

The Common Core State Standards in English language arts emphasize developing students' abilities to analyze both informational and literary texts at increasing levels of complexity. Analyzing a text boils down to discerning and describing the text's structure.

 

All texts, whether informational or literary, have at least two levels of structures (see Kintsch, 1974; van Dijk, 1980). Top-level structures represent the overall organization, such as a narrative characterized by rising action, falling action, and a conclusion, or an argument in which the author presents and supports a claim.

 

In contrast, bottom-level structures involve basic relationships among ideas. Understanding these relationships can help students grasp the underlying structure of complex texts.

Agreement on how American schoolchildren should read and write is much easier to arrive at than agreement on what they should read and write.
Pam Colburn Harland's insight:

"Text selection is the most critical component of any English curriculum, but our educational leaders have avoided the discussion of what works of literature a national canon might include in favor of a curriculum that treats the study of literature as though it were a communication system unrelated to who we are as people."

Nine Ways the Common Core Will Change Classroom Practice

Nine Ways the Common Core Will Change Classroom Practice | Common Core at SRHS | Scoop.it

By ROBERT ROTHMAN


In a recent survey, William Schmidt, a University Distinguished Professor of education at Michigan State University, found some good news and bad news for supporters of the Common Core State Standards. The good news was that the vast majority of teachers have read the Standards and nearly all like them. The bad news was that about 80 percent of mathematics teachers said the Standards were “pretty much the same” as their current state standards.
