A Framework for Achieving the Essential Academic Learning Requirements in Reading, 5-7. Revised.
Washington Office of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Olympia.
Providing a focus for assessment and serving as a scaffold for documenting and reporting students' progress in reading, this framework is designed to assist teachers in planning and implementing Washington state's Essential Academic Learning Requirements in Reading. Organized by grade level (5-7), each level presents information in four sections: (1) the Overview summarizes some of the key learning common to students making normal progress for that grade; (2) the Quick Check provides a summary of skills and strategies that should be established and used before a student can be considered ready to work at the next grade; (3) the Suggested Genres and Text Features chart lists types of fiction and nonfiction texts and the text features familiar to most students at each grade level; and (4) the Suggested Characteristics chart offers skills and strategies or characteristics to be worked toward by the end of each grade. Although the framework is organized by grade level, it is acknowledged that children progress at different rates and that any one child will show more or less progress at certain times. (Contains a list of the Essential Academic Learning Requirements and a glossary of 23 terms.) (SC)
