Features of Strong Text Sets Strong text sets Weak text sets Build student knowledge about a topic, meaningful connection to the anchor text Texts are not related or connected across sets or they are only superficially connected. Texts are authentic, rich, and worthy of study. Only commissioned texts or textbook passages. Range of text types (literary and informational) and formats Focused exclusively on one genre or format (unless the set is a genre study) Text complexity levels support student achievement of the grade-level complexity demands of the CCSS. Text complexity levels are erratic and do not support the staircase of text complexity in the CCSS "Guide to Creating Text Sets for Grades 2 - 12." The Council of Chief State School Officers.
