The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) stress the importance of higher-level thinking skills needed for reading and writing nonfiction texts. The CCSS will be addressed throughout the course. Strategies for deeper thinking about topics that students encounter in their lives will be provided. Participants will engage in nonfiction texts as they learn what readers and writers of nonfiction do - sort, categorize, synthesize, and elaborate the information. Reading to analyze and writing to explore one's understanding about a topic/subject will be the focus of this course.
"I now have a million and one relevant ideas that align with the standards! And ... a new and enlightened perspective on both reading and writing!!"
