How to make the world comprehensible to kids: Reading Wars II

How to make the world comprehensible to kids: Reading Wars II | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

"Like other digital reading programs, Newsela uses short online quizzes, taken by students after reading each article, to help evaluate students’ comprehension and adjust their reading level accordingly. Such “formative assessments” ensure that no student is unfairly labeled by an outdated evaluation—another potential advantage of computerized leveling over its paper-and-ink counterpart, which offers no automated way to monitor students’ increasing fluency.

Ironically, these digital improvements on traditional leveled reading arrive just as the practice of leveling itself is coming in for criticism. Commentators like Timothy Shanahan, an emeritus professor of urban education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Robert Pondiscio, a senior fellow at the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, an education think tank, have recently argued that leveled reading programs provide students with too little challenge. Better than having each student read at his or her own level, they say, would be asking all students to tackle texts appropriate to their grade level, with teachers supplying help when necessary."

Sharrock's insight:

There are shifts in the ways we approach work and education that make their ways into our lives. We might focus on one or two of these concepts in our own lives, but miss that these concepts are involved in new ways of working and learning. Change occurs in small, incremental ways then suddenly, all at once.
