The Common Core State Standard of Text Complexity


The Common Core State Standards identify a three-part model for measuring a text's complexity. This model includes quantitative and qualitative measures as well as variables of individual readers. To address this, the Standards have identified text complexity grade bands (K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8) in which students read increasingly more complex texts across each band. Dr. Elfrieda Hiebert will look at the details to help Sarasota educators prepare students for the increasing demands of required reading.
