  • Common Core Standards define a shift in the amount of fiction to nonfiction that transitions from 50/50 in fourth grade to 70% nonfiction by the end of high school.
  • Although the goal is to increase students’ ability to read increasingly complex text, the CCSS recognize that pleasure reading should be included. We need to remind teachers that the percentages are school wide not just in English Language Arts
  • Nonfiction reading skills are necessary for college and career readiness, reading nonfiction is a skill that has to be taught, students need to know nonfiction text features and how to read charts and diagrams, how to read to solve a problem or argue a point using a text

    3. 3. What About Independent Reading? It’s in there – but buried! Appendix A – page 8 “Students need opportunities to stretch their reading abilities but also to experience the satisfaction and pleasure of easy, fluent reading within them, both of which the Standards allow for. As noted above, such factors as students’ motivation, knowledge, and experiences must also come into play in text selection.”
