Shifts in English Language Arts & Literacy 

Shift 1: Balancing Informational & Literary Text 
Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. 
Shift 2: Knowledge in the Disciplines 
Students build knowledge about the world (domains / content areas) primarily through text rather than through the teacher or other activities. 
Shift 3 Staircase of Complexity 
Students read the central, grade-appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are patient, and create more time, space, and support in the curriculum for close reading. 
Shift 4: Text-based Answers 
Students engage in rich and rigorous evidence-based conversations about text. 
Shift 5: Writing from Sources Writing emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. 
Shift 6: Academic Vocabulary 
Students continuously build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade-level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts.
