Reader & Task Relationship to Text
Complexity
Challenge
Teachers have been directed to “match reader and
text” based on readability level
Yet…
CCSS requires that ALL students engage in complex
texts the span multiple genres

What support will teachers need to be able to do

Language Proficiency Factors
“Students identified as English language
learners do additional cognitive work
because they must attend both to the
message of the text and to the necessary
cognitive resources needed to make
sense of a text written in a foreign or less
familiar language”
(Fisher & Frey, 2012)
