Common Core Information

Page history last edited by Wendy Rooney 7 years, 2 months ago




Informational texts:

nonfiction that gives information about the world rather than only telling a story

Text evidence:

details from a story or article that kids use to support their ideas. The Common Core wants LOTS of text evidence.  

Close reading:

the careful line-by-line study of an article or story to help students really "get it."  

Complex text:

What makes a story or article complex? Hard words, a tricky structure, and a subject that is new or exotic to the reader. Lexile and Guided Reading levels are just one way to measure complexity.  

Higher-level thinking:

thinking that requires kids to, well, THINK instead of just recall facts.
