When I look at the instructional shifts that the CCSS require I wonder about my struggling readers and how they will be able to keep up with the complex texts I need to be using. I totally agree that they should be challenged and that having them work through the text is important but some of them are more than 2 grade levels behind (I teach 8th grade) and will truly struggle with the kinds of texts I'm going to be using. My compassionate teacher heart predicts that I will have a hard time with this and will have to find some kind of supports for them that still allow them to work through the text without getting frustrated and giving up. Any ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
