From International Reading Association: LITERACY IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE FOR THE ELA Common Core State Standards Summary of Recommendations for Disciplinary Literacy: • Involve content area teachers in teaching the Disciplinary Literacy Standards. • Teach students the literacy strategies that are pertinent to each discipline. • Provide appropriate professional learning opportunities for teachers in the literacy practices appropriate for their disciplines. 10Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida

  14. 14. Key Ideas and Details Kindergarten: With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text, with prompting and support, identify the main topic and retell key details of a text, and with prompting and support, describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text. Grade 5: Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text, determine two or more main ideas of a text and explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text, and explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text. Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida 16
  15. 15. Key Ideas and Details Grade 8: Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text; Determine a central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to supporting ideas; provide an objective summary of the text; and analyze how a text makes connections among and distinctions between individuals, ideas, or events (e.g., through comparisons, analogies, or categories). Grade 11-12: Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain; determine two or more central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to provide a complex analysis; provide an objective summary of the text; and analyze a complex set of ideas or sequence of events and explain how specific individuals, ideas, or events interact and develop over the course of the text. 17Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida

Craft and Structure Kindergarten: With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about unknown words in a text,” identify the front cover, back cover, and title page of a book, and name the author and illustrator of a text and define the role of each in presenting the ideas or information in a text. Grade 5: Determine the meaning of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases in a text relevant to a grade 5 topic or subject area, compare and contrast the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in two or more texts, and analyze multiple accounts of the same event or topic, noting important similarities and differences in the point of view they represent. 18Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida
  17. 17. Grade 8: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including analogies or allusions to other texts; analyze in detail the structure of a specific paragraph in a text, including the role of particular sentences in developing and refining a key concept; and determine an author‟s point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how the author acknowledges and responds to conflicting evidence or viewpoints. Grades 11-12: Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze how an author uses and refines the meaning of a key term or terms over the course of a text (e.g., how Madison defines faction in Federalist No. 10); analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of the structure an author uses in his or her exposition or argument, including whether the structure makes points clear, convincing, and engaging.; and determine an author‟s point of view or purpose in a text in which the rhetoric is particularly effective, analyzing how style and content contribute to the power, persuasiveness or beauty of the text. Craft and Structure 19Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida
  18. 18. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Kindergarten: With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the text in which they appear (e.g., what person, place, thing, or idea in the text an illustration depicts), With prompting and support, identify the reasons an author gives to support points in a text, and with prompting and support, identify basic similarities in and differences between two texts on the same topic (e.g., in illustrations, descriptions, or procedures) Grade 5: Draw on information from multiple print or digital sources, demonstrating the ability to locate an answer to a question quickly or to solve a problem efficiently, Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s), and Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.” 20Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida
  19. 19. Grade 8: Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using different mediums (e.g., print or digital text, video, multimedia) to present a particular topic or idea; delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is sound and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; recognize when irrelevant evidence is introduced; and analyze a case in which two or more texts provide conflicting information on the same topic and identify where the texts disagree on matters of fact or interpretation. Grades 11-12: Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or solve a problem; delineate and evaluate the reasoning in seminal U.S. texts, including the application of constitutional principles and use of legal reasoning (e.g., in U.S. Supreme Court majority opinions and dissents) and the premises, purposes, and arguments in works of public advocacy (e.g., The Federalist, presidential addresses); analyze seventeenth-, eighteenth-, and nineteenth-century foundational U.S. documents of historical and literary significance (including The Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and Lincoln‟s Second Inaugural Address) for their themes, purposes, and rhetorical features.

  36. 36. Craft and Structure: Generative Vocabulary Instruction Step 1: Start with the basic premise that “if you learn one word, you actually learn ten.” Focus on the root word. Web resource: onelook.com Step 2: Next, take frequent opportunities to model vocabulary problem-solving using knowledge of a key base word and root. Step 3: As an integral component of generative vocabulary instruction, be constantly on the lookout for meaningful key words, already known to students, that can be used as automatic problem-solving prompts. 38Dr. Susan Wegmann, Baptist College of Florida
