________Feeling confused about what “text complexity” means? Want strategies for assessing the reading abilities of your students? Interested in learning more about text-dependent questions? Ready to think about making some “instructional shifts”? This ebook is for you.
So begins NCTE’s first enhanced ebook, rich with interactive resources that showcase classroom teachers demonstrating principles of excellent reading instruction while addressing the call of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) to emphasize text complexity.
