Shifts in ELA/Literacy Shift 1Balancing Informational & Literary Text - Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. Shift 2Knowledge in the Disciplines - Students build knowledge about the world (domains/content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities. Shift 5Writing from Sources - Writing emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. Subshifts 5 A-E (14) Shift 6Academic Vocabulary - Students constantly build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts. NYS CCLS in the School Library
