This screencast will support your learning to: 

  • Identify how the Common Core State Standards define “texts”, “standards”, and “content” and understand the importance of each
  • Begin to consider the implications of balancing these three elements — text, standards, and content — in literacy planning

Connection to Experts: David Liben from Student Achievement Partners shared feedback with us during our audit in fall 2014 that we needed PD content related to balancing close reading with other types of instruction. This screencast is the product of that feedback.
