Shanahan on Literacy: Differentiating for Text Difficulty under Common Core

Shanahan on Literacy: Differentiating for Text Difficulty under Common Core | Language Arts Ideas | Scoop.it

Question: I have taught elementary and currently teach middle school language arts. One thing that has been bothersome since I began teaching middle school is a lack of differentiating instruction to students’ needs. I am trying to research best practices and lead an action plan for my school as I work towards my masters. I understand that students are now expected to read at a more difficult and complex text level with CCSS. I can’t imagine handing out a text of the same difficulty level to 30 students and expecting the same results. There still needs to be varying levels of text in a classroom. How would you suggest meeting the varying levels of students in your classroom? How should the lesson delivery look?

In Common Core, Teachers See Interdisciplinary Opportunities | Education Week

In Common Core, Teachers See Interdisciplinary Opportunities | Education Week | Language Arts Ideas | Scoop.it

By Leila Heiten

Summary by ASCD SmartBrief

 

"Teachers nationwide say the implementation of the Common Core State Standards presents opportunities for interdisciplinary thematic units, in which educators of various subjects work together to teach a certain concept or idea. Bobbi Farrell, a social studies and language arts teacher at Messalonskee Middle School in Oakland, Maine, explained an example of the approach as teaching a social studies lesson on immigration or social classes by integrating literature, with books such as "The Outsiders."

MS Language Arts: Where We've Been and Where We're Going

MS Language Arts: Where We've Been and Where We're Going | Language Arts Ideas | Scoop.it

Probably a subtitle more like: “Bravely going where no language arts teacher has gone before” might’ve been more appropriate.

 

Our middle school language arts teachers have been on quite a journey this year, and we’re capping it off with our second joint meeting tomorrow (ALL 14 teachers from grades 6-8 at both MS buildings, plus an intervention specialist, plus a media specialist).  We’ve tackled BOTH text complexity and curriculum mapping simultaneously this year, and to say that it’s been chaotic is an understatement.  But, it is with absolute appreciation for the hard work of these teachers that I can say we have accomplished something awesome.

Deb Gardner's curator insight, February 12, 2013 5:39 AM

Think about the work these teachers have done, the school leadership it took, and the willingness of all to "let go" of prior mindsets, novels, and textbooks.  Wow!
