Food for Thought…. "Adolescents entering the adult world in the 21st century will read and write more than at any other time in human history. They will need advanced levels of literacy to perform their jobs, run their households, act as citizens, and conduct their personal lives." -- Richard Vaca, author of Content Area Reading: Literacy and Learning Across the Curriculum They (students) actively seek the wide, deep, and thoughtful engagement with high-quality literary and informational texts that builds knowledge, enlarges experience, and broadens worldviews *Common Core Standards – English Language Arts
Proficient Readers… Activate relevant, prior knowledge… Create visual and other sensory images from text… Draw Inferences from text to form conclusions… Ask questions of themselves, the authors, and the text they read… Determine the most important ideas in a text… Synthesize what they read… Reading with Meaning - Debbie Miller (2002)
OUR GOAL FOR TODAY: “We must open the doors of opportunity. But we must also equip our people to walk through those doors.” -- Lyndon B. Johnson
