Hi OTFL friends! Thank you so much for attending my presentation, and for the great conversation. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you want to talk more– I’d love to help.
Just a note–this post will be living organism over the next few weeks, so don’t fret– more information will be added.
Here are a few links to my work:
- My Common Core Pinterest Page. This is where a ton of my research is from.
- My tumblr, which has a lot of common core relevant links. My tumblr has some things I couldn’t pin, plus some other fun and goofy things.
- How people reading the CCSS need help with THEIR reading comprehension. One of those articles I mentioned about how adults can’t read.
Resources from other sites
- Here’s a nifty Common Core 101 guide written by a teacher.
- Exemplars from the Common Core State Standards (pdf)
The exemplars are a good place to start to see what kind of reading the standards encourage. However, they are not a definitive list, nor are some of the exemplars that exemplary. Use this list as a starting point and a guide, and build your collections from there. Do not kill yourself trying to find out of print or obscure texts.
- Appendix A, where you will find the breakdown of figuring out text complexity.
- Video explaining text complexity
- School Librarian Advocacy Toolkit
