Text Complexity on TextProject

TextProject has created a new product line, the Teacher Development Series. With my excellent colleagues, Dana L. Grisham and Freddy Hiebert, we created five modules to assist teachers as they grapple with the idea of text complexity as the Common Core State Standards roll out.  From the “What’s New” page of the TextProject website:

To help teachers, whether veterans or candidates for certification, acquire the knowledge and skills needed to make the most of the new CCSS standards, TextProject introduces our first-ever product line aimed at teacher education and professional development environments. The TextProject Teacher Development Series on Text Complexity and the Common Core State Standards is a series of five modular lessons, each with guidance for teacher leaders, teacher educators or staff development leaders as well as activities for teachers.

Preview the first module here.  Four more modules will be available by August 16, 2012.  Additional information can be found on Reading Today Online, as well.
