What does a Common Core ELA lesson look like in action?
District English Language Advisory Committee

By age 3, children from affluent families have heard 30 million more words than children from parents living in poverty. (Hart and Risley, 1995).

Children who have larger vocabularies and greater understanding of spoken language do better in school (Whitehurst and Lonigan).

If children aren’t reading on grade level by third grade, they are four times more likely to leave high school without a diploma (Hernandez, 2011).
The Research on Literacy
Informational text comprehension (K-5, 6-12)
Literature comprehension (K-5, 6-12)
Foundational reading skills (K-5)
Writing (K-5, 6-12)
Speaking and Listening (K-5, 6-12)
Language (K-5, 6-12)

“No skill is more crucial to the future of a child--or to a democratic and prosperous society--than literacy.”

~Los Angeles Times~

"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." – Dr. Seuss
