"To teach students how to analyze text at that level, we need to train their teachers to do the same."

"To teach students how to analyze text at that level, we need to train their teachers to do the same." | Figurative Language | Scoop.it

"If we narrow the Common Core down to a handful of changes, one of the largest is that students will need to read texts much more attentively than ever.

According to the standards, students will begin analyzing figurative language in fifth grade; they'll tackle allusions in eighth. And these skills can't be taught in isolation, either -- the Common Core asks us to create authentic experiences with text. Essentially, if you see a literature discussion in which kids aren't flipping through pages feverishly, the class likely isn't standards-aligned."
