Shanahan on Literacy: Close Reading with Struggling Adolescents

Shanahan on Literacy: Close Reading with Struggling Adolescents | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

Close reading is an outcome. You want students to be able to read texts—without a lot of external information from teachers or publishers—getting what the text says, how it works, and what it means (including my critical response, my sense of how it connects with other texts, etc.)

Amy Stoeckly's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:27 PM

Wonderopolis has a not only a "Wonder of the Day" but a drop down menu that allows you to search for short lessons on Folktales/Fairytales, Poetry, Science and Social Studies, and much much more.  Steps to get there: Select a "Wonder" from the drop down box, then naviagate across "Did you know"(sets the lesson up), "Try it" (student work ideas), and "Wonderwords" (vocab related to task).

Diane Ravitch: Wrong on the Common Core

 What we most need now is not cold feet, but high quality examinations, first-rate curriculum and instructional resources and high quality training for our teachers in the use of those standards, instructional resources and assessment systems.  It will take years of determined effort to develop all that infrastructure and years more to implement it effectively.  And there is no time to waste.

The right curriculum for kindergarten: Play

The right curriculum for kindergarten: Play | common core practitioner | Scoop.it

The standards were designed to elevate the quality of instruction in our country: to teach students to think independently, grapple with difficult texts, solve problems and explain their thinking in a clear and compelling way. This is a noble vision. But its attainment depends entirely on the execution.

Catherine Schmidt's curator insight, March 9, 2013 10:25 PM

From this piece, "In our schools, we prioritize teacher development over curriculum development. You do not make teachers better by handing them a packaged curriculum and sending them to a few days of training. Instead, teachers need time to analyze the standards, practice different teaching strategies, learn from mentors, collaborate with colleagues, observe one another, look at student work together, reflect on why certain approaches work better than others, learn from mistakes and continually improve. None of this is fast or easy. But it is how teachers become great."

Balancing Readability and Reading Fluency | On Common Core | School Library Journal

commoncore2014@gmail.com's insight:

You may not agree with this direction, but those who create assessments have already increased the reading difficulty on state tests. Students should not see difficult material for the first time on these tests. They have to be prepared to closely read, examine, decode, and digest material that is not within their “fluency” or comfort range.

Catherine Schmidt's curator insight, March 20, 2013 9:18 AM

"The triage for our transliterate generation will be embracing complex text and close reading. Two important tactics that will help teachers get there are purposeful reading andtactile reading." Good point!
