Charting: Text Complexity Crisis 0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Review Reading Standards: Foundational Skills (Pg.8) 1. What are the foundational skills for 5th grade?

2. How could explicit instruction of Foundational Skills be incorporated into your ELA instructional time? Next Steps: Choose one:
Use a Smarter Balance Assessment Sample with your class
Incorporate text dependent questions into your reading instruction
Plan to use a more complex text with appropriate scaffolding as needed
Search the internet for "text complexity" - Bring samples of something you found particularly helpful Welcome & Purpose Common Core Changes

Teaching Foundational Reading Skills

Collaboration with Colleagues

Maintaining an "EL Lens" 4 Reading Teachers in 1 1. Grade Level Text
- Grade level text materials (with scaffolds) that support comprehension, fluency, and decoding
2. Foundational Skills
- Foundational reading skills instruction (including remediation)
3. Leveled Text
-Independent level texts that support fluency and decoding practice
4. Intervention (Tier 1)
- Addressing specific skill gaps/deficiencies High School textbooks have declined in all subject areas over several decades Average length in sentences in K-8 textbooks has declined from 20 to 14 words.

Vocabulary demands have declined. For example:
8th grade textbooks = former 5th grade textbooks;
12th grade anthologies = former 7th grade texts Complexity of texts students are expected to read is WAY BELOW what is required to achieve college and career readiness Complexity of college and career texts has remained steady or increased, resulting in a huge gap How do we support struggling readers in accessing grade level texts?
