Here are slides from my LACUE 2013 Presentation
Tech + CCSS = Engagement
Integrating technology into your classes can help to cover Common Core State Standards.
Many tech tools can aid students in reading and connecting with written and visual text.
Key Ideas and Details
R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the visual or written text.
R.2 Determine central ideas or themes of a visual or written text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
R.3 Analyze how and why individuals, events, or ideas develop and interact over the course of a visual or written text.
Craft and Structure
R.4 Interpret words and phrases as they are used in a visual or written text, including determining technical, connotative, and figurative meanings, and analyze how specific word or image choices shape meaning or tone.
R.5 Analyze the structure of visual or written texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of the text (e.g., a section, chapter, scene, or stanza) relate to each other and the whole.
R.6 Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a visual or written text.
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
R.7 Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
R.8 Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a visual or written text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.
R.9 Analyze how two or more visual or written texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity
R.10 Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently.
Text Types and Purposes
W.1 Write arguments to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
W.2 Write informative/explanatory texts to examine and convey complex ideas and information clearly and accurately through the effective selection, organization, and analysis of content.
W.3 Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, well-chosen details and well-structured event sequences.
Production and Distribution of Writing
W.4 Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
W.5 Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
W.6 Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing and to interact and collaborate with others.
Research to Build and Present Knowledge
W.7 Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation.
W.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
W.9 Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Range of Writing
W.10 Write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences
Comprehension and Collaboration
SL.1 Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
SL.2 Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
SL.3 Evaluate a speaker’s point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric.
Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas
SL.4 Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
SL.5 Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.
SL.6 Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command of formal English when indicated or appropriate.
