Dr. Shanahan Answers Your Questions PDF Print E-mail

Your questions... answered! After watching Dr. Timothy Shanahan's webinar about the CCSS Instructional Shifts here, many of you sent in questions. We sent them on to Dr. Shanahan and he responded.

Read Dr. Shanahan's responses here

Questions include:

  • With the huge emphasis on increased text level, it seems that the amount of reading done will decrease significantly. What are your thoughts on this?
  • David Coleman suggests reading 50% informational and 50% literary text. When we present students with "reach" texts, would you suggest we put more informational than literary texts in their hands?
  • What would be the accuracy percentage you'd recommend when you suggest students read at their frustration level/"reach" level?
  • What is the role of literary nonfiction?
  • What are your thoughts about using gradated texts? Texts on a variety of levels as a scaffold?
  • And many more!
