Lone Tree 6-12 Culture of Literacy


The Common Core Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, Math, ELA, and technical subjects are designed to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life by the time they graduate from high school.
The Common Core asks students to read complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as social studies, math, science and technical subjects. Students will be challenged and asked questions that require them to refer back to what they have read. This task puts an emphasis on critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.

Students must learn to read, write, speak, listen and use language effectively in a variety of content areas, and the standards promote the literacy skills and concepts required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines. The standards also lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person who is prepared for success in the 21st century.

The Lone Tree School District has chosen the following standards as areas of emphasis in all content areas with the vision of preparing our students for what lies ahead:

Reading Standard

Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of various texts; determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; trace the text’s explanation or depiction of a complex process, phenomenon, or concept; provide an accurate summary of the text.

Writing Standard

Write arguments focused on discipline-specific content; develop claims and counterclaims fairly, supplying data and evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both claims and counterclaims in a discipline-appropriate form and in a manner that anticipates the audiences’ knowledge level and concerns.

Speaking and Listening Standard

Initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions using grade appropriate topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively.
