CCSS - Close Reading Exemplars

To be college and career ready, students need to be able to read sufficiently complex texts on their own and gather evidence, knowledge, and insight from those texts. These close reading exemplars intend to model how teachers can support their students as they undergo the kind of careful reading the Common Core State Standards require.
Each of these exemplars features the following: readings tasks in which students are asked to read and reread passages and respond to a series of text dependent questions; vocabulary and syntax tasks which linger over noteworthy or challenging words and phrases; discussion tasks in which students are prompted to use text evidence and refine their thinking; and writing tasks that assess student understanding of the text.

"The ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS)  suggest the use of more primary source materials in science and social studies classes.  I agree that this will bring some interesting experiences to class and expose kids to some historically important documents.  These documents will also challenge them to read “closely” and will offer  great ways to generate, and reflect on, text dependent questions.  But where are these resources available?  They were not as easy to find as I thought, but here is a set of starting points that’ll point you in the right direction!"

A Painless Way to Accomplish Common Core State Standards | common core todd | Scoop.it
Since the LOC places incredible primary sources at our fingertips, I've thought a lot about how to use them in conjunction with my books in order to accomplish the goals of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Planning Text-Dependent Questions | common core todd | Scoop.it
