  3. 3. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA College and Career Readiness
  4. 4. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Publishers’ Criteria for CCS in ELA “WE NEED MATERIALS THAT HELP US MARKEDLY INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF INDEPENDENT READING DONE BY STUDENTS.” STANDARD 10. READ AND COMPREHEND COMPLEX LITERARY AND INFORMATIONAL TEXTS INDEPENDENTLY AND PROFICIENTLY.
  5. 5. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Common Core says: “Children at the kindergarten and grade 1 levels should be expected to read texts independently that have been specifically written to correlate to their reading level.
  6. 6. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA T-W-I Common Core says: “Children at the kindergarten and grade 1 levels should be expected to read texts independently that have been specifically written to correlate to their reading level. Many titles not read independently can be read along with a teacher or that are read aloud to students to
  7. 7. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA T-W-I Common Core says: “Children at the kindergarten and grade 1 levels should be expected to read texts independently that have been specifically written to correlate to their reading level. Many titles not read independently can be read along with a teacher or that are read aloud to students to build knowledge and cultivate a joy in reading.”
  8. 8. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Significantly more emphasis on nonfiction.

  10. 10. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA AR and Nonfiction AR Quizzes are an efficient method to monitor and manage what students are reading, text complexity, and the amount they are reading. 2006 study by ACT, and cited in CCSS Appendix A.
  11. 11. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA The Staircase of Complexity
  12. 12. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Text Complexity Grade Bands These ranges provide guidance on materials appropriate for INSTRUCTIONAL USE with students in each grade bank and are not based on a student’s individual reading level.

  16. 16. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Vocabulary Acquisition Initially, children readily learn words from oral conversation because such conversations are context rich in ways that aid in vocabulary acquisition: in discussions, a small set of words (accompanied by gesture and intonation) is used with great frequency to talk about a narrow range of situations children are exposed to on a day-to-day basis.
  17. 17. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Vocabulary Acquisition • Yet as children reach school age, new words are introduced less frequently in conversation, and consequently vocabulary acquisition eventually stagnates by grade 4 or 5 unless students acquire additional words from written context. • Written language contains literally thousands of words more than are typically used in conversational language. Yet writing lacks the interactivity and nonverbal context that make acquiring vocabulary through oral conversation relatively easy, which means that purposeful and ongoing concentration on vocabulary is needed. (Hayes & Ahrens, 1988 in CCSS)
  18. 18. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Isabel L. Beck, Margaret G. McKeown, and Linda Kucan (2002, 2008)• Tier 1 – “the words of everyday speech usually learned in the early grades” (sad, run, dog and orange)

McKeown, and Linda Kucan (2002, 2008)• Tier 1 – “the words of everyday speech usually learned in the early grades” (sad, run, dog and orange)• Tier 2 – “far more likely to appear in written texts than in speech” and “appear in all sorts of texts”• Tier 3 – “specific to a domain or field of study (lava, carburetor, legislature, circumference, aorta)” –” often explicitly defined by the author of a text, repeatedly used, and otherwise heavily scaffold (e.g., made a part of a glossary)”

McKeown, and Linda Kucan (2002, 2008)• Tier 1 – “the words of everyday speech usually learned in the early grades” (sad, run, dog, orange) Tier 2 – “far more likely to appear in written texts than in speech” and “appear in all sorts of texts” - High Frequency/Multiple Meaning (replenish, distinction, injustice, and words like - revolution which has a different meaning in Social Studies vs. Science) VIDEO: http://engageny.org/resource/common-core-in-ela-literacy-shift-6-academic- vocabulary/• Tier 3 – “specific to a domain or field of study (lava, carburetor, legislature, circumference, aorta)” –” often explicitly defined by the author of a text, repeatedly used, and otherwise heavily scaffold (e.g., made a part of a glossary)”

  22. 22. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Words on the List • 5, 10, or 15 words for each book • Same readability level as book or higher • Used two or more times • Significant to book’s meaning • Interesting and useful in everyday conversations

  24. 24. AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA What about students who are behind? Learning progressions hold the potential to bridge instruction and assessment.

AR IN THE COMMON CORE ERA Core Progress for Reading Dr. Margaret Heritage National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing at UCLA “The first of its kind, the new mixed-method approach used to develop the learning progression in reading has made a contribution to the field of learning progression development.” Dr. Margaret Haritage
