Text Set Logan McKnight April 20, 2013 International Reading Associations 58th Annual Convention What is a text set? A text set is a collection of resources from different genres, media and levels of reading difficulty that are designed to be supportive of

the learning of readers with a range of experiences and interests. Focuses on a concept or topic and may include multiple genres such as books, charts, maps, informational pamphlets, poetry, songs, photographs, etc. Provides multiple perspectives from which to view a topic http://www.ed.sc.edu/raisse/pdf/handouts/ iraGoodman.pdf

Inquiry through text sets Organize text sets based on questions about the topic Cover general questions about the topic as well as interdisciplinary considerations Students can help develop questions Provides opportunities for inquiry study Can be guided to come up with questions you

already have in text set Also offers opportunity for new questions you havent considered peers can teach each other about discoveries based on new questions Questions 1. Why are there endangered species? How 2. 3.

4. 5. 6. does this happen? How do we know a species is endangered? What species are endangered? What would it feel like to be a threatened or endangered species? Where are endangered species located? What can we do to help protect and

conserve endangered species? Questions 1. How would a historian look at 2. 3. 4. 5.

6. conservation/endangered species? How would an artist view endangered species? How do you represent something youve never seen? How would a mathematician view endangered species? What questions would they ask? What problems would they solve? What songs/sounds do we hear that we might not

if the species went extinct? How are ecosystems affected when a species is endangered or goes extinct? How do endangered and/or extinct species affect us? What local issues/stories are there involving Common Core Connections CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.3 Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific

Common Core Connections CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.8 Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.9 Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about

the subject knowledgeably. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.4.10 By the end of year, read and comprehend informational texts, including history/social studies, science, and technical texts, in the grades 45 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range. 19 Resource Highlights Can We Save the Tiger?
