Complex, grade-level text is a cornerstone of everyday learning for all students, including language learners at all stages of English proficiency. But grade-level text isn’t just a tool for academic success—it’s an equity tool. This session will focus on the ways that content-rich, grade-level texts cultivate knowledge, language, and comprehension skills, and what effective use looks like in today’s classrooms. The session will also delineate how teaching with complex, grade-level text, especially with English language learners, is actually crucial for promoting educational equity.
