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.

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.
