Common Core: Addressing Text Complexity through Digital Resources

Common Core: Addressing Text Complexity through Digital Resources | New Learning | Scoop.it

Those of us who are transitioning to Common Core standards know that text complexity will affect the rigor in our classrooms. The Arizona Department of Education (ADE) issued a letter informing us they will increase the text complexity as well as higher Lexile levels on the current AIMS test this year to help transition to the PARCC assessment. This means we need to understand what text complexity is and how to address it right now, regardless of what grade/subject we teach.

You Want Me To Use This In My Classroom? What's The Point? | New Learning | Scoop.it

 

There is one in every school. There is one in every district. There is that one teacher, no matter what you do, no matter how much time you take, how slow you go, how much one-on-one time you spend with them, there is that one teacher who is not going to integrate technology into their classroom. They dig in their heals.

 

===> They bury their heads in the sand. <===

 

They shut the doors to their classroom, leaving technology (and perhaps ultimately quality learning) out in the cold.
