8. Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.
9. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity
10. Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
All cognitive skillshave to be executed within texts of a specified difficulty range.
Brainstorm a list of quantitative measures
Step 2: Qualitative Measures
One hot summer's day a famished fox was strolling through an orchard until he came to clusters of grapes just ripening on a trellised vine. "Just the thing to quench my thirst," quoth he. Drawing back a few paces, he took a run and a jump, and just missed the bunch. His mouth was watering and he could feel gnawing hunger pains. Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give up.
Once a fox walked through the woods. He came upon a grape orchard. There he found beautiful grapes hanging from a high branch. “Boy those sure would be tasty,” he thought to himself. He backed up and took a running start and jumped. He did not get high enough.

The equatorial heat warmed the precincts of Antarctica in the Southern Hemisphere instead, shrinking the fringing sea ice and changing the circumpolar winds. As a result—and for reasons that remain unexplained—the waters of the Southern Ocean may have begun to release carbon dioxide, enough to raise concentrations in the atmosphere by more than 100 parts per million over millennia—roughly equivalent to the rise in the last 200 years.
The heat at the equator warmed areas of Antarctica. This caused the sea ice to melt and changed the wind around the ice cap. Scientists are not sure why, but that caused the waters of the Southern Ocean to release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The concentrations increased by more than 0.01% over thousands of years. This is about the same as the past 200 years.

THINK how the Standards for Mathematical Practice can be integrated across the curriculum.
The entire universe “is written in the language of mathematics”- Galileo (1623)
Generate ideas for how teachers can integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice in other content areas.
21st Century Learning
“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be
those who cannot read and write, but those
who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn”
“Teachers need to integrate technology
seamlessly into the curriculum instead of
viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought or an event.”
Changes of this magnitude require a complete rethinking of education….
….both in terms of the curriculum, and in the development of pedagogies that…
….ensure that every student acquires the high level of skills needed to thrive in the dynamic world of the 21st century.
21st century literacy is about reading to learn and developing the capacity and motivation to identify, understand, interpret, create and communicate knowledge.
