Teachers' Domain, Research Principles for Supporting Middle School Literacy, published August 31, 2012, retrieved on ,
This self-paced lesson designed for teacher professional development introduces research principles that support the needs of middle school learners when reading and comprehending nonfiction text and shows these principles in action in actual classrooms. By middle school, students encounter more texts in the content-area disciplines and must refine their use of comprehension strategies to learn content. The self-paced lessons in the Inspiring Middle School Literacy collection use videos, interactive activities, note taking, reading, and writing to present students with an engaging content-area topic while enhancing their literacy skills. While the lessons in the collection are designed so that students can work independently and at their own pace, the teacher plays an important role in ensuring maximum student learning and engagement.
It is recommended that you follow this lesson with the “Using the Inspiring Middle School Literacy Collection” professional development lesson to learn teaching strategies for integrating student lessons into your curriculum.
To help improve this service, please report and describe any standards correlations that you find to be inaccurate.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
