Text Complexity in Reading and Writing

Recorded on December 05, 2012

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

This archived webinar reviews the three factors used to measure text complexity, and provides a guide to analyzing text to determine whether it is at the correct level of rigor.

Participants in the live webinar analyzed various samples of student writing and engaged in interactive discussions to determine whether or not each sample exemplified the correct level of rigor.
