Many even have a RUBRIC for grading!

There are many, many different literacy strategies, and these are just a few that we will be sharing with you!
Informational Text-Dependent Questioning
Tools to increase student vocubulary
Writing prompts
Text Dependent Questioning
Text Dependent questions require that students actually READ the text. They require:
reading of the text
providing evidence from the text and not information from outside sources (or personal experience)
They are also not simple recall questions of the material.
Article Excerpt:
Spanking the Grey Matter out of our Kids
1. As a future parent, would you spank your own children? Were you spanked?

2. What are the reasons listed in the article to support the authors argument to not spank your child?
Types of Questions
1. First question may have been asking about the ethical position of a parent, but does not actually require the students to read the material to possibly have an opinion.

2. Question 2 has students consider the text, and the information that is presented, as well as look for text detail.

What does it mean for you????
Types of Text Dependent Questions
Some can focus on the whole text, some on part of the text.
Require the student return to the text for evidence
Require the readers to have read and understood the material.
Questions can fall anywhere within the progression of text-based questions.
Opinions, arguments and intertextual connections: Often what teachers like to ask, but should be asked after a discussion is build on text-dependent questions. It can send the message that reading is not necessary and that they can learn from discussion or personal experience alone. Questions should analyze claims, evidence, and use logic.

Vocabulary: Increasing vocabulary in CTE and using Common Core
Data from Marzano research
Card Sort:

Sort your cards into 3 categories within your group.
Tiers of Words:
Tier 1
: basic or common words used everyday
Tier 2
: academic words used by multiple disciplines
Tier 3
: Words specific to a particular domain, discipline, or subject.
