Greetings to all,
April 21 – 25 is the start of week 3 of our activity in the College and Career Standards Group. The video for this week focuses on informational texts. The short video begins with students expressing their difficulties reading and using complex texts. You will see how the instructor, Ms. Wessling, uses a strategy to overcome their challenges. I think that viewing this video can provide you with insight that is transferable to adult education classes.
Joining us in our discussion will be Amy Matthews from Kentucky.
Comic Book Templates: An Entry Point into Nonfiction
Common Core Standards: ELA.RI.9-10.1, ELA.RI.11-12.1, ELA.RI.11-12.5
Reading Informational Texts
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
Analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of the structure an author uses in his or her exposition or argument, including whether the structure makes points clear, convincing, and engaging.
- How does using the templates help students to develop understanding?
- What do students learn about the attributes of nonfiction?
Ms. Wessling uses a familiar medium to get students to tackle a complex task. How could you use this approach in your classroom?
