Product Description
If we expect students to improve their abilities to read challenging texts, then they must have ample opportunities to engage with them in meaningful, authentic ways. As teachers of literacy, we need to carefully and thoughtfully plan activities to maximize student learning and transfer learning to other disciplines. Paired Texts Task Sequences create instructional conditions to move students to read at advanced levels by scaffolding texts, while focusing on processes of learning, not products.

The goals of the Paired Texts Task Sequences are to provide students with the opportunity to:
• think deeply about texts
• inaugurate new ideas about texts
• synthesize information and ideas presented in texts
• participate in discussions rooted in evidence
• clarify thinking through writing
• write capturing the meaning of both texts

This Paired Texts Task Sequence is about September 11, 2001. It includes two texts, two videos, and a sequences of 9 tasks to do in reponse the texts and videos.

I hope you find this Paired Texts Task Sequence as beneficial as I have with my students. I firmly believe all students can achieve at high levels if given access to practice that allows them to transfer what they are learning to all disciplines.
