L EARNING T ARGETS FOR LITERACY AND RIGOR TODAY WE WILL LEARN how... to use accountable talk to increase metacognition AND to create a connection among reading, writing, speaking & listening in our content lessons... BECAUSE we want to provide students with the tools necessary to think critically, listen attentively, work collaboratively, and apply information learned.
L ITERACY OR A NCHOR S TANDARDS W HAT ARE THE A NCHOR S TANDARDS ?? 10 anchor standards Same ultimate goal for K-12 (continuum) How do I read the Anchor Standards?? CCR= College & Career Readiness RI = Reading Informational 1 = Anchor Standard #1 Handout
HOW IS THIS RELEVANT TO ME AS A HEALTH EDUCATOR? College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards: 8 th = 55% of reading & writing should be grounded in informational text 12 th = 70% of reading & writing should be informational We can reach the 55% if we all introduce small chunks of informational text in our units.
S O WHAT DOES L ITERACY IN H EALTH LOOK LIKE ? Asking deeper questions Reading same text multiple times for different purposes Synthesizing multiple pieces of media/text for insight into different perspectives Discussing texts Writing about the texts Necessary Routines for Increasing Rigor Journal of Adolescent Literacy The “HOW”
W E START WITH METACOGNITION ! Metacognition is: “eavesdropping on someone’s thinking” “thinking about your thinking ” In metacognition =In rigor
I N OTHER WORDS... Rigor resides in the energy and attention given to the text, not in the text itself. Rigor is STUDENTS thinking and doing the work. -Kylene Beers Notice & Note

M INI LESSON / WORK SESSION : H OW DO WE TEACH USING COMPLEX TEXT ??? Call for close, attentive, and purposeful reading of disciplinary texts to *gain key ideas and details, *understand the writing craft and structure, and *critically evaluate knowledge, claims, and evidence. This thing called Close Reading Help students to slow down and *notice *track their thinking
THINKING NOTES M ETACOGNITIVE MARKERS ( M & M’ S ) E Text evidence ?? Something is unclear or confusing ? Raises a Question--possible discussion point for class ! Omg! Great piece of writing, quote, or idea! Words I don’t know Tool for students to slow down and “notice” what is in the text!text
Purpose written Numbered paragraphs Circled unknown words Underlined and noted “E” for evidence that supported purpose Wrote comments in margins to help her make connections Students annotate text
Purpose : Should energy drinks be banned? MINI LESSON: Close read text from Taking Sides
They read it... but do they get it? What is this saying? ??!!!???
But wait... Are students armed with the information necessary to be successful thinkers and readers? Do they know how to navigate the text?
W HAT IS INVISIBLE TO STUDENTS ? Text structure (layout, sequence of parts) Organizational patterns Graphics, charts, captions, diagrams Title, subtitles, bold words, headings Pause and Ponder: What would your students need to notice in order to successfully navigate through this text?
But wait... Do students know their purpose for reading? Looking through a different lens.

R ETURN TO THE A CTIVATOR AND C OLLABORATIVE DISCUSSIONS Review brainstorming posters Review conversation notes from Take a Stand or Arguing Both Sides with Face/Shoulder Partners The speaking & listening strategies give students the opportunity to see/hear different perspectives and build on ideas.
Constructed Response: The author of the article presented one side of a debate over the consumption of energy drinks. Looking at the article on monster beverages, the Bloomberg News made a valid point. In Paragraph 3, in support of banning energy drinks, this particular news group shared statistics of “37 reports involving Monster energy drinks, including six fatalities, since 2004.” The other side,however, would argue the article also mentioned in Paragraph 3 that the FDA also received thousands of such reports about aspirin each year and hundreds about coffee. Thus, making the argument that energy drinks alone are not necessarily the cause of death. Therefore, it could be argued the individual consuming the product is ultimately responsible to know their health status, read the product label, and use reasonable judgment about the volume being consumed at one time or in one day. After all, moderation is simply the key. YourYour observations?
