  • NOW… FLAT WORLD AND 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
  • Transliteracy will not build Dr., lawyers, actuaries, engineers, accountants, and other people who will achieve, invent, solve, etc .
  • MarileeSprenger, Educational Leadership, Sept 2009: Focus on the Digital BrainiBrain .. 2 second evaluationMillennials personify…Lexiles – rigor – Readability & CCSS
  • Low-budget research? What are you going to say?
  • Moral of the story: Change is inevitable and constant. Teaching needs change as learning needs change. Learning needs define teaching needs
  • These shifts “layer” on top of the standards.We cannot just talk about the standards or just shifts… they are WOVEN Become familiar to be a building leader.
  • Gap analysis…To ignore one is to ignore half of the Common Core. Get to know content, embrace the pedagogy shift. “To treat CCSS as the same thing, is doing a disservice to your students.”
  • What are ways to engage?
  • Invitation to InvestigatePictoral reprentation of facts is EFFECTIVE - knowledge products via INFOGRAPHICS. Relevance and takes rigorous content and summarizes. - top of Bloom’s
  • Relevance shift in the pedagogy… Away from recall  relevance
  • Everyone is in the literacy business…”
  • Value words …words = power words = money empowerment Your library computers should be set to a DEFAULT TO CHECKING WRITING AND GRAMMAR WITHIN MCROSOFT WORD
  • Oral sentences are usually less than 7 words, with 1 single idea, grammar ill, Written sentences are usually 15-25 words long, complex and grammar precise.
  • Dilemma.. If we want kids to learn, we have to give them texts they can understand. BUT – I few restrict texts to understanding, they already know the words and we deny them the opportunity to learn new words. Even if you explicitly and implicitly teach Vocabulary…. You still won’t reach the 1,000,000 words in modern print.
  • Poverty and vocabulary studies
  • When I gave you a purpose to read, you read “closer” -- That is “close reading” – purposeful reading. “I read it, but I don’t get it…”
  • Love word clouds. Kids love them…. “A picture’s worth 1000 words…” Look at these clouds for 10 seconds-- Now… look at them and tell me in the chat box, what “library lingo” do you see there? -- Reading for meaning… Try again -- . What higher level Bloom’s words do you see? (PURPOSEFUL reading vs. reading) Did you read differently? Deeply? …”i.e. Shift 1:
  • Simple text has simple sentences – those with only 1 thoughtComplex sentences have 2 or more thoughts within them, and they are grammatically correct.
  • Number of words per sent… divided by # syllable on the Metametrics site great tool…” Find a book” - dialog will reduce the Lexile, thus Shakespeare scores around 500. That does NOT mean they should be ignored… WHY assessments already lexiled…
  • Visually infested generation… needs to strengthen the auditory modality. READ – The CASE of the MISSING Diamond.
  • As a librarian, you can do this 1 on 1 with students.
  • I read it but I don’t get it….
  • We don’t have time to address this in detail, and I would refer you to the rubrics on the handout for more information…On blog… For both books and Primary source documents this evaluative conversation needs to occur. With ELA core novels – Is this a sacred cow? Or, do we have to reconsider this in light of the CCS and Lexile recommendations? NYS “kate gershon”
  • What are ways to engage?
  • What if Sherlock Holmes investigated, Synthesized came to a conclusion, and never reported it? Shared it? Sluething…
  • Inquiry promotes student “ownership” – which makes it relevant to their lives. When they are allowed to ask their own questions, they “own” the investigation and they usually ask “relevant” questions to their life.
  • Tickets to leave correlate to our EQ’s at the beginning. If you are not teaching the students anything, watch out. Define your learning objective. EQ: what do you….

  • 11. CCR? http://www.act.org/research/policymakers/cccr12/readiness7.html
  • 12. FROM APPENDIX A: Being able to read complex text independently and proficiently is essential for high achievement in college and the workplace and important in numerous life tasks. Moreover, current trends suggest that if students cannot read challenging texts with understanding—if they have not developed the skill, concentration, and stamina to read such texts— they will read less in general. In particular, if students cannot read complex expository text… they will likely turn to text-free or text-light sources, such as video, podcasts, and tweets. These sources, while not without value, cannot capture the nuance, subtlety, depth, or breadth of ideas developed through complex text.
