Meet Common Core State Standards
with Delta Education
You're asking students to do close reading — to read like a sleuth — and, when delving into science, to read and think like a scientist. Both require:
- reading for evidence,
- digging deep for meaning,
- and a range of critical thinking skills including — inquiring, questioning, investigating, noting, analyzing and proving
Your students grow as they grapple with increasing complexity of texts; as they master the text features of headers, captions, illustrations and charts; and as they grasp academic vocabulary.
Delta Education has developed several truly engaging product lines to facilitate student growth in just these ways. You can be assured of Delta Education's scientific accuracy while knowing that you're meeting Common Core State Standards.
Prepare students from their earliest years for success in college, the workplace and, perhaps, as future scientists!
"Part of the motivation behind the... approach to literacy promulgated by the [Common Core State] Standards is extensive research establishing the need for college and career ready students to be proficient in reading complex informational text independently."
