Product Description
This Common Core Literacy lesson guides students through an article about research in Down syndrome gene therapy.


The activity consist of three parts:
1. Close Reading with annotation symbol guide and vocabulary identification
2. Discussion where students compare what they thought was most important, most interesting, or confusing (helping each other understand segments of the text and rereading together).
3. Text-dependent questions that demand evidence.

Because questions are text-based, students do not have to have prior knowledge on the topic, though this lesson connects well to lesson in human heredity, mutations, and gene regulation.




This lesson addresses at least 7 different Common Core Literacy Standards for Science and Technical Subjects (cited here for grades 9-10, but may also cover the continuing standards for other grades).

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.1 Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.2 Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; trace the text’s explanation or depiction of a complex process, phenomenon, or concept; provide an accurate summary of the text.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.4 Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.6 Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text, defining the question the author seeks to address.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.8 Assess the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support the author’s claim or a recommendation for solving a scientific or technical problem.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RST.9-10.7 Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words.
