The 5-Step Literacy Routine is our proven method for developing the core skills that are essential to success in college & career, including the independent reading of complex texts.
Each step reinforces specific literacy skills and standards. These steps are presented as bullets on the Lesson page and have been newly updated! The new steps are listed below with their previous name for reference.
Step 1 – Ready (previously Before Reading Poll)
Step 2 – Read (previously Article)
Step 3 – Respond (previously Activity)
Step 4 – Reflect (previously After Reading Poll)
Step 5 – Write (previously Thought Question)
New Slider Functionality
You will notice on all steps of the lesson a new slider that splits the page. This can be adjusted to the left or right to enlarge the side which a user is working on for ease of view! In the example, below you can see that the article on the Read step has been expanded to the right so that the user can focus on this section!
