The Listening & Learning strand of the Core Knowledge Language Arts program is designed to help students build the background knowledge and vocabulary critical to listening and reading comprehension. Through introducing, presenting, and discussing read-alouds in each domain, teachers build students’ listening and reading comprehension and oral language skills.
Each domain anthology is comprised of daily lessons, pausing points, a domain review, a domain assessment, and culminating activities.
- Pausing Points: opportunities to review, reinforce, or extend the content taught thus far. Both the decision to pause and the length of the pause are optional and should be determined by each individual teacher based on the particular class’s performance.
- Domain Review: an opportunity to review and reinforce the material (e.g., core content and vocabulary) in the domain in order to help students prepare for the domain assessment.
- Domain Assessment: evaluates students’ understanding and retention of academic vocabulary words and the core content targeted in the domain. The results should guide review and remediation the following day.
- Culminating Activities: provide remediation and/or enrichment for individual students, small groups, or the whole class based on the results of the Domain Assessment and students’ Tens scores.
