  • Presenter: What does it mean to be college and career ready? The words in this graphic design were taken from “Students who are College and Career Ready in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language” (Section 3 of Introduction). Ask participants to turn to this section of the Framework. Participants will examine this “ Wordle” (created using the tools at Wordle.net – free website that takes text you supply and creates a graphic design in which the words that appear most often in the linear text become the largest in the design). Ask participants to write a statement that incorporates 5 or 6 of the largest terms. Share statements in pairs or groups. Presenter: You may wish to have several volunteers share their statements with the whole group.
