Join us to learn how you can leverage diversity and text complexity in your classroom!

Dr. Alfred W. Tatum once said “out of all the texts in the world, why do I want to put this text in front of my students at this time?” We know that students do not read or write in a vacuum- they spend time in literacy classrooms developing their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in response to and while making sense of texts and developing their own critical lens. How can we ensure that students are challenged in a variety of ways: through grade-level quantitative and qualitative complexity, through texts that offer both representation and new knowledge of the world, and by cultivating curiosity, inquiry, and agency? At Student Achievement Partners, we are creating a growing bank of resources meant to support educators in the work that helps us leverage diverse and complex text for instruction.
