Text Complexity in Reading and Writing

This webinar is now archived.

Teaching students to read and write text at the appropriate level of rigor is integral to implementing the Common Core State Standards with fidelity.

Join us for this free webinar, where you will review the three factors used to measure text complexity. You’ll also receive a guide that will allow you to analyze text from your curriculum to determine whether it is at the correct level of academic rigor for your students.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to analyze various samples of student writing and engage in interactive discussions to determine whether each sample exemplifies the correct level of rigor.

To get the most out of this webinar, we encourage you to participate along with a colleague, a professional learning community, a grade-level team, a department, or as an entire staff.

This webinar is part of the four-part series, “Transitioning to the California Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.”
