Cutting to the Common Core: Decoding complex text
from Language Magazine
The adoption of the Common Core Standards by many states has brought the issue of complex texts to the forefront. The questions for teachers, administrators and teacher educators have become "How does one revise the curriculum so that complex texts are included as a part of everyday school life?" and "How does one teach students to interact with complex texts, particularly those who are struggling readers?" These questions are intensified for English learners, who now make up 21 percent or more of the public school population, depending on the region or school district.
