Defining
What is Text?: The term “text” refers to anything that a
teacher can use to center instruction, anything that students
can read, view, listen to, or explore, including books,
photographs, films, articles, music, art, and more.
What is a Text Set?: A text set is a collection of related texts
organized around a topic or line of inquiry.
A text set includes information in many modalities, including
print, audio, visual. Examples could be podcasts, news
footage, photographs, drawings, artifacts, sculptures, and
paintings, including primary sources.
Criteria
Constructing a text set requires considering
three criteria:
1. A variety based on text complexity considerations.
2. Various cultural perspectives may be appropriate for some
concepts.
3. Differences that offer various approaches to the “big idea” or
conceptual understanding that unifies the conceptual text
set.

Strong vs. Weak
Strong text sets
Weak text sets
Build student knowledge about a
topic; meaningful connection to the
anchor text
Texts are authentic, rich, and
worthy of study
Range of text types (literary and
informational) and formats
Texts are not related or connected
across sets or they are only
superficially connected
Only commissioned texts or textbook
passages
Focused exclusively on one genre or
format (unless the set is a genre
study)
Text complexity levels are erratic and
do not support the staircase of text
complexity in the CCSS
Text complexity levels support
student achievement of the gradelevel complexity demands of the
CCSS*

 High School: Across Genres
Shifts
Building knowledge through contentrich nonfiction and informational texts
Reading and writing grounded in
evidence from the text
Regular practice with complex text and
its academic vocabulary
Text Sets and the
Standards
 The Standards focus on building student ability to read and
understand grade-level complex text and express that
understanding clearly through writing and speaking.
 The Standards emphasize the role of close engagement with
text in students building knowledge about the world.
 A coherent sequence of texts around a clear topic or line of
inquiry will support students in building vocabulary and
background knowledge.
 Text sets are one tool for educators in planning units of
instruction to help students meet the demands of the
Standards.
Where does using multiple texts
appear in the Standards?
Reading: Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
 R.CCR.7 Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and
formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
 R.CCR.9 Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or
topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the
authors take.
Writing: Research to Build and Present Knowledge
 W.CCR.7 Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects
based on focused questions, demonstrating understanding of the
subject under investigation.
 W.CCR.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital
sources, assess the credibility and accuracy of each source, and
integrate the information while avoiding plagiarism.
Speaking and Listening: Comprehension and
Collaboration
 SL.CCR.2 Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse
media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
Standard 10 in K-2
Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity
 RL.CCR.10 Read and comprehend complex literary and informational
texts independently and proficiency.
 RL.K.10 Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and
understanding
 RL.1.10 With prompting and support, read prose and poetry of
appropriate complexity for grade 1.
 RL.2.10 By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature,
including stories and poetry, in the grades 2-3 complexity band
proficiency, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.
