Shifts literacy

shifts - Literacy

Students . . .

  • Build knowledge through “close reading” of content-rich nonfiction (in ELA, Social Studies and Science)

  • Read, write and speak using evidence from text, both literary and informational

  • Get regular practice with appropriately complex text and its academic language


Ldc literacy design collaborative

lDC(Literacy Design Collaborative)

  • Module of lessons around a challenging task aligned to CCSS literacy and content standards in ELA, social studies and science.

  • Designed to:

  • - Build Understanding Through Close Reading of Complex Texts

  • - Integrate Reading and Writing Skills

  • - Focus on the Effective Use of Textual Evidence

  • Modules serve as an anchor to begin questioning practice, considering instructional shifts, and analyzing student work


Template to instructional tasks fertile ground for ccss literacy instruction

Template to Instructional Tasks:Fertile Ground for CCSS Literacy Instruction

LDC template tasks clearly integrate common core reading and writing standards toward artifacts of student work.

Task 2: [Insert question] After reading ________ (literature or informational texts), write a/an ________ (essay or substitute) that addresses the question and support your position with evidence from the text(s). L2 Be sure to acknowledge competing views. L3 Give examples from past or current events or issues to illustrate and clarify your position. (Argumentation/Analysis)

Teacher-completed LDC instructional tasks determine what texts students will read, what they will look for and learn as they read, and what they will write to demonstrate their understanding of texts and teacher selected content.

Task 2: As the concerns over global warming increase, is the use of Uranium and nuclear fission the best method for producing energy for civilian use? After reading scientific sources, write a report that addresses the question and support your position with evidence from the texts. Be sure to acknowledge competing views and give examples from past or current events or issues to illustrate and clarify your position. (Argumentation/Analysis)


Teaching tasks an example

Teaching Tasks: An Example

Did President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal policies effectively address the problems of the Great Depression (eg. Unemployment, poverty, overproduction of goods, unequal distribution of wealth, lack of economic regulation, etc.)? After reading several primary and secondary sources about the Great Depression and New Deal, write an essay that addresses the question and support your position with evidence from the texts. L2 Be sure to acknowledge competing views. L3 Give examples from past or current events or issues to illustrate and clarify your position.
