HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT
Teens tend to give up when they have too few tools
to build meanings that make sense from their texts. The opposite is also true,
Offer teens the kinds of tools in this product
– and they tackle their text with interest and they expect to come to new ideas with curiosity and real life applications.
Learners grow confident to read other new factual texts
, when they gain experience in discovering hidden meanings, spotlighting an author’s bias, or examining their own beliefs while engaging beliefs that differ.
These materials align to CCSS (grade 9 to 12)
– and are useful to students in many subject areas where they will read texts for deeper or hidden meanings.
ELA Standards included - Reading: Informational Text - Grade 9-12
Specifically, these standards state
that students should be able to:
1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis
of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. (Grades 9 – 10)
2. 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. (Grades 11- 12)
These materials offer students step – by step tools
to analyze any text through multiple intelligence tasks.
Readers will discover hidden meanings, opposing views, and they’ll pick up on biases
that alter word meanings to insights beyond what a reader sees initially in words.
Use these materials to unpack fictional narratives, or informational essays,
or even posters with icons and images. They will analyze texts for deeper meanings and illustrate those meanings in multiple ways through authentic tasks.
Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials
will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
Do follow my TpT site
and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
