GENERAL NOTES

Instructional Practices

Teaching from a well-written, grade-level textbook enhances students' content area knowledge and also strengthens their ability to comprehend longer, complex reading passages on any topic for any reason. Using the following instructional practices also helps student learning:
  • Reading assignments from longer text passages as well as shorter ones when text is extremely complex.
  • Making close reading and rereading of texts central to lessons.
  • Asking high-level, text-specific questions and requiring high-level, complex tasks and assignments.
  • Requiring students to support answers with evidence from the text.
  • Providing extensive text-based research and writing opportunities (claims and evidence).
