The ELA CCSS and the Six Shifts:


1. Balancing Informational and Literary Text: At least 50% of what students read is informational. (SIOP, Thinking Maps, Paired Readings, Teaching Informational Text)



2. Building Knowledge in the Disciplines: Content teachers emphasize literacy in their classrooms. (In-depth reading of short, content-support texts, structured note-taking and use of other graphic organizers for meaning-making)



3. Staircase of Complexity: Teachers provide appropriate and necessary scaffolding and supports. (Provide Background Knowledge, Complex Texts, Rigorous Conversations, Scaffolding)



4. Text-based Answers:Teachers insist that classroom experiences stay deeply connected to the text.( QAR, Close Reading, Question-Answer-Relationship, Text Dependent Questions, Text Chunking) 



5. Writing from Sources: Writing needs to show use of evidence to inform or make an argument. (Sentence Starters, Outlines, Graphic Organizers, Guided Writing, Modeling)



6. Academic  Vocabulary: Students constantly build the vocabulary they need to access grade level complex text. (Explicit teaching of academic vocabulary & power words, explicit instruction in word learning strategies, teach language chunks, build on native-language knowledge) 




 

The next Education Connections webinar will be held on Wednesday, April 16, from 1-2 pm EDT, titled, "Fostering Academic Discussions with English Learners in the Context of the Common Core." This webinar will offer practical advice for teachers on how to foster student-to-student academic discussions in the classroom, with the goal of supporting English learners in meeting the demands of the Common Core.

Our presenter, Lydia Stack, is an internationally well-known teacher educator and author. She is currently involved in Understanding Language, a Stanford University project to support English Language Learners as they gain access to the Common Core State Standards. Her teaching experience includes 25 years as an elementary and high school ESL teacher and she is a past president of TESOL.
