Language and Literacy With Common Core State Standards
Note: This program was originally available as part of the Adolescent Language and Literacy: Supporting Emotional, Social, and Academic Growth conference.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) urge students to develop discipline-specific language, close reading and comprehension skills, evidence-based speaking and writing abilities, and collaborative inquiry. In this session, we’ll examine the language underpinnings of the standards, and how to best plan for instruction and interventions that promote literacy, learning, and success for all students. We’ll round out the session by emphasizing the importance of collaboration between SLPs and classroom teachers, exceptional education teachers, ESOL teachers, administrators, and parents.
You will be able to:
- analyze the language underpinnings of the CCSS (grades 6–12) in English language arts standards, and language requirements in the content standards
- explain the relationship between speaking, listening, reading, and writing as reflected in the CCSS
- identify what students can learn and accomplish using language in secondary grades
- describe the SLP’s role in the CCSS era and the urgency for strategic and sustained collaboration among educators
