Grade 9

Reading is Thinking: 

The Reading is Thinking framework is designed to support educators in addressing the literacy needs of students in high school so that students develop the necessary attitudes, knowledge, skills, and strategies to be successful in their learning across curriculum. It focuses on three Big Ideas:

 

Thinking about Self
Students develop their identities as confident, engaged and motivated readers within their diverse communities.

Thinking about Text
Students develop the characteristics and practices of proficient readers before, during and after reading within and across disciplines.

Thinking about the World
Students will develop critical reading/literacy in order to
  • develop deeper understandings of a variety of text in order to express and substantiate personal positions
  • solve problems, make decisions, resolve conflicts, and take action in their world.
