We help students become more proficient, independent readers and thinkers across all content areas.  This type of reading is central to the CCSS.

Consider these direct quotes from the CCSS – that call for students to:

“habitually form the critical reading necessary to pick carefully through the staggering amount of information available today in print and digitally.”

and be

“proficient in reading complex informational text independently in a variety of content areas.”

It is essential for middle-level and secondary level students to acquire, practice, and hone reading and thinking skills with increasingly complex informational texts – skills and experiences necessary to be successful in college and beyond.

Again, our close connection to the CCSS:

“Most of the required reading in college and workforce training programs is informational in structure and challenging in content; post secondary education programs typically provide students with both a higher volume of such reading that is generally required in K-12 schools and comparatively little scaffolding.”

How DELVE Learning meets Common Core Standards

What we do at DELVE Learning aligns closely and deeply with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), especially the college & career readiness anchor standards for reading, Grades 6 through 12.

The Critical Web Reader provides essential scaffolding so each student can be proficient and independent with each of these core standards:

  • Make inferences
  • Determine central ideas
  • Evaluate reliability
  • Analyze word & image choice
  • Analyze text structure
  • Assess point of view
  • Evaluate content in diverse formats
  • Evaluate arguments & specific claims
  • Compare sources

How DELVE Learning goes beyond the Common Core Standards

DELVE Learning helps teachers and schooles create their own pathway through and beyond the Common Core with:

  • An inquiry framework
  • A focus on complex web-based texts
