"There has been a lot of discussion around the CCSS ELA expectation for text complexity, balance of informational and literary text, writing with evidence and vocabulary in context. Not as much attention has been paid to the Speaking and Listening standards."

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight: 

An interesting search engine directly used for educational purposes. It creates a mediated yet reciprocial intimacy between students and teachers outside the classroom environment. I'm quite fascinated with how students can engage in different lessons or levels according to the different teaching they would prefer.:) But alas! It would take quite a while before it kicks off here.

Excellent resource for articles for your classroom!  Students can adjust their reading level by lexile, which allows you to assign one article, differentiate instruction, and not stigmatize a student with a lower reading level! You can create a class binder, give students an access code, and track the quizzes they take.  Or assign a certain number of articles and let students choose their own articles on topics that interest them.  I think this is the best resource for informational text I've seen in 2013!

Amy Stoeckly's curator insight, October 21, 2013 3:22 PM

AMAZING website-You have to check this one out!  Something for everyone here: Science, current events on all kinds of topics, social studies, culture and more!  What's more to love: you can adjust the lexile (reading level) , some come with worksheets or assessments, and you can save these in your teacher binder. With this FREE account you can email these articles out to students to read as homework and have them come to class ready to discuss.

Although the November 6, 2013  news release from PARCC states, "The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers released new sample test items today. With this release, PARCC has now made public exemplar test items across the grades in both mathematics and English language arts/literacy" there still remain gaps in samples at several grades. Just sayin'....if one is going to publish a news release stating test items are available across the grades, shouldn't they be?

“When you are able to read closely you are doing three things at once:

Lens – What am I looking for? (examples:  text evidence, word choice, structure, figurative language)Patterns –  What patterns do I notice?  (Not to pick out one just one word, but to look across the text to determine ‘What does the author tend to do?’)Idea -What is the big idea that this author is writing about?   (not just confirm previous thinking)”  (Kate Roberts, 6/26/2013, Teachers College Writing Institute)

Elizabeth Sky-McIlvain's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:19 PM

Once again I have broken the NO CCSS rule.  Sorry. But I find this essay on the perplexities of close reading with kids to be so enlightening that I want to pass it on. For one, there is honesty about the differences in text:

"Rather, if we are to teach readers how to think like content-area specialists, we must aid them in reading disciplinary texts like content-area writers. Literacy coaches and teachers of close reading must acknowledge that close reading is guided by the purpose for which the analysis is being conducted and also from the perspective of the discipline from which the document is being analyzed."

Also, the overall message is one which I believe is being lost in PD and panic: "Rather, motivate your students to read and learn, to persevere and stumble, to pick up and move ahead, finding success because you have put it in their reach."  

OK - you can do that.
