  2. 2.  Investigate the world Recognize perspectives Communicate ideas Take action – missing from the CCSS  We need to prepare kids for life and the world as well as for college and career
  3. 3.  CCSS focus on engaging in close reading of texts and in examining the author’s point of view Reader response – Missing from CCSS • Personal connection/response is the first step – necessary but not sufficient. • Personal response + textual analysis  Analyze text AND analyze your connections and point of view and your cultural lens
  4. 4.  Focus on building a strong knowledge of global issues and cultures, learn how to evaluate and compare sources of information. Involve a move beyond just collecting facts CCSS do not recognize the contribution of narrative and story to global perspectives • Takes reader beyond the surface of culture to the deep values, beliefs, and actions – immerses readers in how people live and think
  5. 5.  Provide examples of text complexity • Qualitative, quantitative, and reader/task Focus on classics • Not culturally or globally diverse • Language and text structures tend to be formal and archaic Need to diversify the exemplar text lists • Multicultural and global cultures • Contemporary culture
