What’s our attitude?
CatnipComic by Jeff Hoyle
Our Goal in Starting CC: IRL
● add library expertise to evaluating
educational resources
● deepen our understanding of the ladder of
complexity
● provide an alternative to prescriptive
curriculum kits
Informational Reading
“50-50 balance
between informational
and literary reading”
"Key Shifts in English Language Arts." Common Core State Standards Initiative. Web. June 2014.
Informational Text...
“Includes biographies and
autobiographies; books about
history, social studies,
science, and the arts;
technical texts... and digital
sources on a range of
topics.”
"English Language Arts Standards » Standard 10: Range, Quality, & Complexity » Range of Text Types for K-5." Common
Core State Standards Initiative. Web. June 2014.
Common Core IRL: In Real Libraries 2014
Expository - explains, describes, informs
Narrative - reads like a story
Persuasive - argues a position
Descriptive - uses sensory details
Poetic - presents information through poems
Understanding Reading Levels
Comparing different systems:
● What do they measure?
● Which do our schools use?
● How do we estimate with new books?
Smith III, Malbert, Anne Schiano, and Elizabeth Lattanzio (2014). “Beyond the Classroom: How Lexile Measures are Being
Used in the Library to Achieve College and Career Readiness.” Knowledge Quest. 42(3):20-29.
Understanding Reading Levels
“No tool can replace the
professional judgment of a
teacher, parent or librarian in
helping students select
books”
Ladder of Complexity

Factors that Contribute to Complexity

space
● eye flows in natural
line

Vocabulary
Definitions - Vocabulary -
Glossary
Don’t they just mean the
same thing?
Book Looking by Nemo
Some books create a
separate box for key terms
and the corresponding
definitions.
This book calls them
“Titanic Terms.”

Another text feature:
a key word is bolded
with the definition
embedded in the
