Common Core Reading for HS students? Yes, indeed.

The English Language Arts standard has 2 components: Literature and Informational Texts. They work in tandem, defining college and career readiness expectations. Guidelines are integrated by grade levels (9/10, 11/12).

  • Informational Texts
    • Cite strong and thorough evidence to support analysis of what the text explicitly says.
    • Determine the meaning of words and phrases using context clues.
    • Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented through multiple media (i.e. visually, quantitatively, orally).
  • Literature
    • Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text.
    • Determine 2 or more themes or central ideas developed over the course of a text.
    • Analyze multiple interpretations of a story, drama, or poem, evaluating how each version interprets the source text.
