Ariel and Will Durant were right when they said, “Education is the transmission of civilization.” Putting our current challenges into historical context, it is obvious that if today’s youngsters cannot read with understanding, think about and analyze what they’ve read, and then write clearly and effectively about what they’ve learned and what they think, then they may never be able to do justice to their talents and their potential. ISBE Content Specialists will use the Writing to Read research from the Carnegie Corporation by Steve Graham and Michael Hebert to identify the cluster of closely related instructional practices shown to be effective in improving students’ reading. The report groups these practices within three core recommendations in order of the strength of their supporting evidence. A culminating activity of designing a classroom task and connections to PARCC will be shared.
