4 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” ELACC5RL3: Compare and contrast two or more characters, settings, or events in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., how characters interact). ELA5R1 The student demonstrates comprehension and shows evidence of a warranted and responsible explanation of a variety of literary and informational texts. For literary texts, the student identifies the characteristics of various genres and produces evidence of reading that: a. Identifies and analyzes the elements of setting, characterization, and conflict in plot. b. Identifies and analyzes the structural elements particular to dramatic literature (e.g., scenes, acts, cast of characters, stage directions) in the plays read, viewed, written, and performed. c. Identifies and analyzes the similarities and differences between a narrative text and its film or play version. d. Relates a literary work to information about its setting (historically or culturally). e. Identifies imagery, figurative language (e.g., personification, metaphor, simile, hyperbole), rhythm, or flow when responding to literature. f.

8 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” What do we know? K-12 Reading texts have seen a decline in the levels of difficulty over the last half- centuryK-12 Reading texts have seen a decline in the levels of difficulty over the last half- century The reading demands of college and workforce training have held steady or increased over the past 50 yearsThe reading demands of college and workforce training have held steady or increased over the past 50 years Only between 7% and 15% of elementary and middle school reading is expositoryOnly between 7% and 15% of elementary and middle school reading is expository

9 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” Qualitative aspects of text complexity best measured by an attentive human reader, such as levels of meaning or purpose; structure; language conventionality and clarity; and knowledge demands Quantitative aspects of text complexity, such as word length or frequency, sentence length, and text cohesion, that are difficult if not impossible for a human reader to evaluate efficiently, especially in long texts, and are thus today typically measured by computer software Reader and task considerations focus on the inherent complexity of text, reader motivation, knowledge, and experience and the purpose and complexity of the task at hand. This kind of assessment is best made by teachers employing their professional judgment.

11 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” Text Complexity Rubric Intended to assist educators in evaluating multiple dimensions of a text. The rubric addressees the three aspects of text complexity required for consideration in Common Core Appendix B: qualitative, quantitative, and reader/task match. Each of these three dimensions includes specific relevant categories, each of which is listed with a short explanation to assist users in making the best possible determination.

12 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” Integrated Learning

13 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” WHAT IS INTEGRATED LEARNING? Although the standards are divided into strands for clarity, the processes of communication are closely connected. Reading comprehension and student writing always require direct textual evidence for claims, inferences, and analyses. Research and media skills are blended into the standards as a whole. To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or to solve problems. The need to conduct research and to produce and consume text and media is embedded into every aspect of today ’ s curriculum. Similarly, research and media skills and understandings are embedded throughout the standards rather than treated in a separate section.

16 Dr. John D. Barge, State School Superintendent “Making Education Work for All Georgians” As learning - and research about learning - evolves, we are beginning to understand that meaningful scholarship is really a whole universe of simultaneous events. Common Core emphasizes a 21st century classroom that transcends the idea of teaching standards in isolation and embraces a holistic approach where reading, writing, listening, speaking, and language are woven together to engage students with meaningful and relevant lessons.
