Event Description

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative advocates standards that require students to read and understand increasingly complex text at each grade level in order to develop the skills they need for success in school and life. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has said that the "Holy Grail" of education is to ensure that students graduate from high school “college and career ready” (CCR).  


This session, sponsored by ES BOCES and Molloy College, will provide an opportunity to explore important aspects of the ELA CCSS in relation to text complexity. CCSS incorporate the use of Lexile measures to gauge the increasingly sophisticated levels of text required throughout a student's educational career. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss the use of Lexile measures, common in NYS schools, to:

  • differentiate classroom instruction;
  • target instructional resources and materials; and,
  • monitor student progress and track growth toward college and career readiness.


Participants will leave with practical recommendations for systemic change and access to free online resources, built upon the work of researchers such as Dr. James S. Kim (Harvard Graduate School of Education), Dr. Richard Allington (University of Tennessee, Knoxville), and Dr. K. Anders Ericson (Conradi Eminent Scholar, Florida State University) for immediate use.
