HIT HERE FOR VIDEO DESCRIPTION OF THIS PRODUCT
These tasks unpack standards – while helping students to enjoy their learning journey.
Teens tend to give up when they have few tools
to build connections 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 connections into new ideas. They come with curiosity and interest!
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. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development
over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text. (Grades 9 – 10)
2. Determine two or more central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text,
including how they interact and build on one another to provide a complex analysis; provide an objective summary of the text. (Grades 11-12)
Readers will discover personal meanings within connections they make, and they’ll pick up on applications
that give 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 connections and illustrate those links to real life 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.
