learning targets for literacy and rigor
Learning Targetsfor literacy and rigor


  • to use accountable talk to increase metacognition


  • to create a connection among reading, writing,speaking & listening in our content lessons

. . . BECAUSE we want to provide students with the tools necessary to think critically, listen attentively, work collaboratively, and apply information learned.

literacy or anchor standards what are the anchor standards
Literacy or Anchor Standards What are the Anchor Standards??


  • 10 anchor standards
  • Same ultimate goal for K-12 (continuum)

How do I read the Anchor Standards??

CCR= College & Career Readiness

RI = Reading Informational

1 = Anchor Standard #1


How is this relevant to me as a health educator?

College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards:

8th = 55% of reading & writing should be grounded in informational text

We can reach the 55% if we all introduce small chunks of informational text in our units.

12th = 70% of reading & writing

should be informational

So what does Literacy in Health look like?

The “HOW”

Necessary Routines for Increasing Rigor

  • Asking deeper questions
  • Reading same text multiple times for different purposes
  • Synthesizing multiple pieces of media/text for insight into different perspectives
  • Discussing texts
  • Writing about the texts

Journal of Adolescent Literacy

we start with metacognition
We start with metacognition!

Metacognition is:

“eavesdropping on someone’s thinking”

“thinking about your thinking”

In metacognition =

In rigor

in other words
In other words . . .

Rigor resides in the energy and attention given to the text, not in the text itself.

Rigor is STUDENTS thinking and doing the work.

Notice & Note

a look inside a lesson
A look inside a Lesson:

Taking Sides:

Should energy drinks be banned?



Purpose for viewing:

To what audience is Red Bull marketing?

What type of messages were being sent to the audience about the product?

Predict what the FDA would say about this cartoon clip?

Show me your answer!



What do you know about these topics?

  • List energy drinks currently on the market
  • List benefits of consuming energy drinks
  • List potential health problems caused by ingesting too much caffeine
  • What do you know about the FDA?

Collaboration +

Mini lesson/work session:How do we teach using complex text???

This thing called Close Reading

Call for close, attentive, and purposeful reading of disciplinary texts to

*gain key ideas and details,

*understand the writing craft and structure, and

*critically evaluate knowledge, claims, and evidence.

Help students to slow down and


*track their thinking

! Omg! Great piece of writing, quote,

or idea!

Words I don’t know

Tool for students to slow down and “notice” what is in the text!


Students annotate text

Purpose written

Numbered paragraphs

Underlined and noted “E” for evidence that supported purpose

Wrote comments in margins to help her make connections

Circled unknown words

Close read text from Taking Sides


They read it . . .

but do they get it?

What is this saying?



But wait . . .

Are students armed with the information necessary to be successful thinkers and readers?

Do they know how to navigate the text?

what is invisible to students
What is invisibleTO STUDENTS?
  • Text structure (layout, sequence of parts)
  • Organizational patterns
  • Graphics, charts, captions, diagrams
  • Title, subtitles, bold words, headings

Pause and Ponder:

What would your students need to notice in order to successfully navigate through this text?


But wait . . .

Do students know their purpose for reading?

Looking through a different lens.

CCR Speaking & Listening Walking the Standards


Category 1

Comprehension and Collaboration

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.1 Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 8 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.2Analyze the purpose of information presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and evaluate the motives (e.g., social, commercial, political) behind its presentation.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.3 Delineate a speaker’s argument and specific claims, evaluating the soundness of the reasoning and relevance and sufficiency of the evidence and identifying when irrelevant evidence is introduced.

Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.4 Present claims and findings, emphasizing salient points in a focused, coherent manner with relevant evidence, sound valid reasoning, and well-chosen details; use appropriate eye contact, adequate volume, and clear pronunciation.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.5 Integrate multimedia and visual displays into presentations to clarify information, strengthen claims and evidence, and add interest.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.6 Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate. (See grade 8 Language standards 1 and 3 here for specific expectations.

  • Face partners – before reading text
  • Brainstorm four good reasons energy drinks should NOT be banned.
  • Next, list specific examples that show why your reason is legitimate. (increases rigor)

find your shoulder partner
Find your shoulder partner
  • Locate your shoulder partner and stand next to him/her
  • Partner on right is #1 and Partner on left is #2
  • Teacher confirms all are paired
  • Partner #1 – argue banning of energy drinks (1 min.)
  • Partner #2 – argue consuming energy drinks (1 min.)

  • Look for patterns of confusion and getting “off track” (interrupt work session to get everyone on “same page” when necessary)
  • Respond briefly to student annotations as you walk the room
    • Note when they are writing fantastic questions
    • Ask a question to further develop thinking
    • Ask students to clarify what they mean
  • Explain unknown vocabulary (to whole class) only when absolutely necessary for comprehension of the text

return to the activator and collaborative discussions
Return to the Activator and Collaborative discussions
  • Review brainstorming posters
  • Review conversation notes from Take a Stand or Arguing Both Sides with Face/Shoulder Partners
    • The speaking & listening strategies give students the opportunity to see/hear different perspectives and build on ideas.

Constructed Response:

The author of the article presented one side of a debate over the consumption of energy drinks. Looking at the article on monster beverages, the Bloomberg News made a valid point. In Paragraph 3,in support of banning energy drinks, this particular news group shared statistics of “37 reports involving Monster energy drinks, including six fatalities, since 2004.”The other side,however, would argue the article also mentioned inParagraph 3that the FDA also received thousands of such reports about aspirin each year and hundreds about coffee. Thus, making the argument that energy drinks alone are not necessarily the cause of death. Therefore, it could be argued the individual consuming the product is ultimately responsible to know their health status, read the product label, and use reasonable judgment about the volume being consumed at one time or in one day. After all, moderation is simply the key.

Your observations?

closing formative assessment
Closing/Formative assessment:

Green– What they learned

Yellow–Questions they have or a new perspective

Red – What stopped their learning

The Spotlight Assessment







Time: 1-2 min.

Students must support with “why”

Time: 1-2 min.

Students write down everything they can remember about the topic/text in a box draw on paper.
