Transcript of Science Close Read

Common Core ELA standards are not taught only in Language Arts and Reading, they are also to be taught in Social Studies, Science, and technical classes.

Close reading is one way to infuse the ELA standards into content areas and to address the 6 ELA instructional shifts:
o Balancing, informational &, literary text
o Literacy across content
o Text complexity
o Text dependent answers and questions
o Evidence based writing
o Academic vocabulary

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.1 Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.2 Determine a central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to supporting ideas; provide an objective summary of the text.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.3 Analyze how a text makes connections among and distinctions between individuals, ideas, or events (e.g., through comparisons, analogies, or categories).
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.6 Determine an author’s point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how the author acknowledges and responds to conflicting evidence or viewpoints.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.8 Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is sound and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; recognize when irrelevant evidence is introduced.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.9 Analyze a case in which two or more texts provide conflicting information on the same topic and identify where the texts disagree on matters of fact or interpretation.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.8.10 By the end of the year, read and comprehend literary nonfiction at the high end of the grades 6–8 text complexity band independently and proficiently.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.8.1 Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 7 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.8.1 Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
SC.8.E.5.7 Compare and contrast the properties of objects in the Solar System including, the Sun, planets, and moons to those of Earth, such as gravitational force, distance from the Sun, speed , movement, temperature, and atmospheric conditions
SC.8.E.5.4 Explore the Law of Universal Graviation by explaining the role that gravity plays in the formation of planets, stars, and solar systems and in determining their motions.

Goal: Teachers will understand the components of a close read and be able to plan one.
4. All of 3, and I can deliver one and monitor its effectiveness.

3. I understand the components of a close read and can plan one.

2. I have a partial understanding of the components of a close read, and with help can plan one.

1. I have heard of a close read, but don’t know the components, and don’t know how to plan one.

0. A close read is when your face is right next to the book.
