This packet includes graphic organizers, posters, and a rubric that focus on Common Core Reading Literature1.2. This standard requires students to determine the central message or theme of a text and to analyze the development of that theme and to summarize the text. The anchor is then wisely broken down into "baby steps" for each grade level, beginning with kindergarten. The organization of the standards in this way helps educators not only to better understand the expectations of each standard, but also assists in differentiating assignments for students with varying needs and abilities. A first grade student reading on a second grade level may be encouraged to complete the more rigorous expectations of the second grade standard instead of the first grade one. This student would still be working on the same skill, determining the central message or theme, but at a deeper level than a typical first grader.
The intent of this resource is to support educators as they strive to understand CCSS RL.1.2, and as a result, strengthen their instructional practices. Since the responsibility for interpreting and effectively implementing these standards rests on the shoulders of teachers and administrators, it is crucial that educators understand them the way they are ntended to be interpreted. The CCSS can help to provide a context in which students are invited to become lifelong readers and lead rich, literate lives.
