Antero Garcia @anterobot๐Ÿ”Tonight's makes me wonder when English teachers shouldn't teach a text someone finds challenging. If everyone's comf twitter.com ortable, what kind of progress are we actually making developmentally, civically, or emotionally?
Antero Garcia @anterobot๐Ÿ”A4: Offering a resource here: I spent two years editing a column for JAAL identifying various kinds of challenging t twitter.com exts (and explain different meanings of challenging in first column: )
Antero Garcia @anterobot๐Ÿ”A6: If a challenging text means affirming a student's identity in ways not regularly encountered in classrooms. Teach twitter.com ing challenging texts can be literally life changing/saving.
Dr. Stacey Cole @StaceyCole๐Ÿ”A1: I think sometimes a text is challenging when it forces us to think about the world in a new wayโ€”pushes what we understand about people, etc.
Mrs. H @Naturalknots๐Ÿ”A2:After hearing Nic Stone this weekend at the talk about this, I believe we MUST consider this when choosing challenging texts.
Josh Flores, Trophy Husband & M.Ed. @mrjoshflores๐Ÿ”A3. If you ever face a challenge, NCTE's Intellectual Freedom Center can offer advice, helpful documents, and other support.
Project LIT Community @ProjectLITComm๐Ÿ”Summer brain is realโ€”I totally forgot what day it was and missed ! Iโ€™m also still coming down from the hype of . If yโ€™all donโ€™t know about Project LIT, I HIGHLY encourage you to check out and . You want to be a part of this.
Katye Russell @complikatyed๐Ÿ”A1. A text is challenging when it benefits from multiple readings. I like to discuss layers of meaning with my students to explore ambiguity in literature.
Gina Fasoli GMS/MSA @ginafasoli๐Ÿ”I want my students to have the read a wide variety of complex texts, to have their thinking challenged, and to engage with new perspectives. I want them to also have a say in their education. These are the books my students chose from this year as core texts to study
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”@DocuBrooke YES. TO. THIS. Why are we still assigning The Odyssey?! We can't find anything better?! #NCTEchat
Theresa Harrison @TFowlerHarrison๐Ÿ”Instead of always choosing books that contain characters like our students, take an approach of, โ€œWho do I want to introduce my students to that they otherwise would never have met?โ€ It can be more diverse than mirroring books with the demographic.
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”I love everything about this! I read the short story "Ponies" without reading the whole thing first and it was so aut twitter.com hentic -- the questioning, the think aloud. I never want to read a book ahead of students again!
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”@Jeremybballer @KellyGToGo How hard do you grade AOW? I'm not a huge person on homework. #nctechat
Mrs. P @km090780๐Ÿ”A1 I think we must be very critical about what they word "challenging" means. Too often this word means pedantic or esoteric. It can't just mean Milton or Pound or Shakespeare. Challenge is learning about a place or a culture or a language in which you've never lived
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”A2: I typically start with interests and their own schema or where I intend to go with it. Things Fall Apart is an A twitter.com P text, but I use it with a gentrification and imperialism unit -- so that creates a hook.
Michelle Waters | #INFP ๐Ÿ“š @watersenglish๐Ÿ”A1: The vocab, the ideas mentioned, the background knowledge needed, the syntax, whether or not it is a window text (giving us a peek into an unknown culture to us). Challenging texts force us to grow.
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”I think of it this way as well. I've assigned texts with kids about a sport or something and kids are like, "The hel twitter.com l is this?!"
Evin Shinn @baritoneblogger๐Ÿ”A1: The vocab, the ideas mentioned, the background knowledge needed, the syntax, whether or not it is a window text ( twitter.com giving us a peek into an unknown culture to us). Challenging texts force us to grow.

Natalie Scavone @Oreobug08๐Ÿ”This rubric from is a great resource when thinking about selecting a text: . The National Paidei ncpedia.org a Center also has great Seminar texts and questions you can download for free!
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A6 At the end of the year students argued about gender power dynamics in the workplace using evidence f/ their lives. twitter.com I listened. The texts I choose are not balanced or neutral but I help Ss develop and test their own arguments- many I don't agree with- in response.
ValerieAPerson @vperson๐Ÿ”I was already thinking about making Frankenstein the first text in my (new to me) Modern Fiction & Nonfiction course. This sold me! Can't wait to check out the version.
Lisa Stringfellow @EngageReaders๐Ÿ”(Not gonna pretend know where this fits, but...) We gotta remember that schools socialize the belief in a literary hierarchy that's rooted in white supremacy (see the canon, "classic" works, and the Grammy Awards) & places some texts as "serious" & others as not.
Autumn Ottenad @ssseason7๐Ÿ”If we aren't challenging our students, in content or complexity, we aren't teaching them. Being inside your comfort zone is fine, but it's not where the learning happens.
Kit @MrKitMath๐Ÿ”Imagine living in a place that pushes back against your identity/lived experiences/self & watching as books that might offer representation & solace are not welcomed into the classroom for fear it might "upset the community."

Whose comfort do we prioritize?


Kit @MrKitMath๐Ÿ”A3. I'm seeing a lot of responses that talk about "knowing our community/audience" & I'd like to lovingly encourage another perspective.

I believe that youth living in communities that might push back against a text are the ones who might need it most.


Rachel Shore @MsShoreELA๐Ÿ” A5: Socratic Seminar is a great strategy. Also love using found poetry! #NCTEchat
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A5 We read excerpts from Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich and I asked students to write their own job stories. twitter.com We created texts approximating the book we were reading. Ss report stories of the workplace in response to new journalism.
Janet Kaylor @Kaylor4AU๐Ÿ”A5: Talk is best strategy I know. Loved quote from today on FB โ€œSometimes you enter a text through the door another reader has opened.โ€
NCTE @ncte๐Ÿ”@SummerofLevi Thank you for sharing Daniel! #nctechat
Kelsey @msteachorr๐Ÿ”Forced myself out of my โ€œlurkerโ€ Twitter status to participate in tonight. How can I ask students to step out of the twitter.com ir comfort zone if I canโ€™t try it myself? Excited to keep at it in the following weeks!๐Ÿ˜Š
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A4 We read Danger of a Single Story by . I read the line, "And most of all, a kind of normalized political fear invad twitter.com ed our lives." I ask if my students experience a normalized political fear. Many say they do.
Emily Anna Cipriano @mscipteaches6th๐Ÿ”A6: If a challenging text means affirming a student's identity in ways not regularly encountered in classrooms. Teaching challenging texts can be literally life changing/saving.
Gail Green @GailGreen44๐Ÿ”Q1. What makes a text โ€œchallengingโ€? Why is it important to read challenging and complex texts with students?
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A3 Almost all of the challenges I have encountered I handle by giving the student an alternative. When students have twitter.com voice and choice the power struggles subside. I've chosen to work with leaders who trust my judgement, too.
Michelle Shelton @ChelleShel617๐Ÿ”I've heard this so many times from so many - you are never too old for picture books - there ends up being layers upon layers within the text AND the images. Brilliant.
loading...
Kelsey @msteachorr๐Ÿ”Love this! This exposure also helps students see what is out there. So many of Ss put themselves into boxes as โ€œnon- twitter.com readersโ€ or only liking one genre without realizing what the others have to offer.
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A2 I choose texts connected to essential questions that have cultural and civic weight. I like when these texts mix m twitter.com odes, like powerful TED Talks with transcripts that deserve repeated readings.
rseglem @rseglem๐Ÿ”Tonight's makes me wonder when English teachers shouldn't teach a text someone finds challenging. If everyone's comfortable, what kind of progress are we actually making developmentally, civically, or emotionally?
Leona Gregory @LeonaLGregory๐Ÿ”If you are interested in brilliance is doing a facebook live chat on Passionate Readers! RIGHT NOW
Joe Dillon @onewheeljoe๐Ÿ”A1 I like the idea that a text can challenge the status quo in English Language Arts. A text can be complex because i twitter.com t is part of an ongoing public discourse.
Jill Schany @mrsschany๐Ÿ”A5 Offer students close readings, especially of particularly difficult and meaningful passages. Help them learn rereading as a skill. Have them write the questions that come to mind, and create discourse opportunities based on their questions
Olivia Anne ๐ŸŒท @booksnbigideas๐Ÿ”A1. Saying a text is โ€œchallengingโ€ because itโ€™s frequently challenged sends harmful messages about people's identities. For ex, calling LGBTQ texts challenging because they're frequently banned sends the message that there's something controversial about being LGBTQ.
Jeremy Arends @MrArendsEnglish๐Ÿ” I also use the question set: What? How? Why? So what? To move SS through analysis from craft to theme. #nctechat
Shelbi Collmar Wheeler @mrsCwheeler๐Ÿ”This strategy guide explains Socratic seminars and offers practical methods for applying the approach in your classroom to help students investigate multiple perspectives in a text:
Abbie Forbus @Aforbus๐Ÿ”If I see anotherr teacher on this chat say that they donโ€™t have choice in selecting texts for their classes! Ugh. If Ts donโ€™t have choice what does that mean for our students? One sized fits all doesnโ€™t work.
David Muรฑoz @everyoneagrad๐Ÿ”A6 Students benefit because they grow in confidence. I love when students who didn't believe they could read something actually do. They gain confidence in themselves as readers, as thinkers, as learners. The self-actualization, the self-reliance--it's a beautiful thing
Cindy Erhart @ErhartCindy๐Ÿ”A6b. Students want to be challenged. They don't always enjoy the ride, but they are appreciative at the end. I think it builds their empathy, compassion and understanding, especially for those who are different from them. These are skills we need more now than ever.
Mrs.FeO2 @MrsFeO2๐Ÿ” A6: When students make text-to-self connections and then grow as readers, writers, and learners. #nctechat
Jackie Wynkoop @JackieWEducator๐Ÿ”@kirstenwiley Thereโ€™s a great video from @TeachingChannel demonstrating a found poetry lesson: teachingchannel.org #nctechat
Michelle Shelton @ChelleShel617๐Ÿ”When I read the first two lines of this, I expected it to say โ€œ...walked into a bar.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Anybody want to finish that twitter.com joke?
Cindy Erhart @ErhartCindy๐Ÿ”One of my most successful moments this past year was when a student came to me and said, โ€œI canโ€™t find an article thatโ€™s not biased.โ€ Yโ€™all donโ€™t even know the pride I felt at that moment.
๐€เธฃ๐’ฝ๐“ฮตัƒ ฤŒ๐‘œ๐”ต @MellowEducator๐Ÿ”Enjoyed the #NCTEchat tonight! Great conversation about challenging texts. I can't wait to read the archive! twitter.com
Christie Nold @ChristieNold๐Ÿ”Totally forgot to point out that this was the high school I attended and graduated from. It was something to see my really small town show up on NCTE's website.
Jocelyn Delaney @jcdelaney11๐Ÿ”A6: When students make text-to-self connections and then grow as readers, writers, and learners. #nctechat
Cait Hutsell @caitteach๐Ÿ”A3. A really important point for me is to not pre-label a text as "controversial" because again you can be sending harmful messages. I see this frequently with LGBTQ texts. You can send summaries of all books without assigning a potentially harming label.
jastith @jastith๐Ÿ”MY first #NCTEchat was great. Lots of food for thought. :) twitter.com
Cody Miller @CodyMillerELA๐Ÿ”Also, new teachers/recent grads, please feel free to reach out if y'all need anything. Enjoy your summer! And thank y twitter.com ou for being part of the profession! <3
NCTE @ncte๐Ÿ”For those in - if you're not already following please do yourself (& your Ss/shelves) the tremendous favor of doing so! โค๏ธ


Autumn Ottenad @ssseason7๐Ÿ”How To Date A Brown Girl (black girl, white girl, or halfie) got in trouble once for teaching this short story even t twitter.com hough it was in the textbook here is some curriculum to go w/it
Christie Nold @ChristieNold๐Ÿ”We definitely have to continue to expand our own knowledge in order to help facilitate the expansion of knowledge for our Ss. Researching additional titles can help.
Ana Jennings @anajennings2018๐Ÿ”A6. When ss practice interacting with each other to discuss provocative topics with respect, consideration, and open twitter.com ness, it is a big win.
Christie Nold @ChristieNold๐Ÿ”For those in - if you're not already following please do yourself (& your Ss/shelves) the tremendous favor of doing twitter.com so! โค๏ธ


Cody Miller @CodyMillerELA๐Ÿ”Totally forgot to point out that this was the high school I attended and graduated from. It was something to see my r twitter.com eally small town show up on NCTE's website.
Kisha Johnson @MsJohnson_Kisha๐Ÿ”A5: 1โ€“ I love to model close reading and annotation. Iโ€™ve recently stopped forcing annotations. Instead, I like to show students the things that stand out to me and explain why. Then, I send them off to try it for themselves.
Jodi Wicks @JodiRWicks๐Ÿ”2โ€“ I begin all discussions w/ the question: โ€œwhat is your initial response?โ€ This gets conversation started easily. Ss donโ€™t feel as much pressure to โ€œsound smart.โ€ Iโ€™ve found they ask much better ?s this way & begin to unpack major elements of the text more naturally
Kisha Johnson @MsJohnson_Kisha๐Ÿ”A1: Challenging texts require Ss & teachers to step outside their comfort zones. Reading these texts makes us question ourselves.
Josh Thompson @jthompedu๐Ÿ”Summer brain is realโ€”I totally forgot what day it was and missed ! Iโ€™m also still coming down from the hype of . If y twitter.com โ€™all donโ€™t know about Project LIT, I HIGHLY encourage you to check out and . You want to be a part of this.
Mrs.FeO2 @MrsFeO2๐Ÿ”A6- hello growth mindset. Students who have always experienced ease in English actually enjoy the challenge. And stud twitter.com ents who see English as a challenge finally have a break through when they accomplish a challenging read.
Mr. DeLay @adelayedteacher๐Ÿ”Thank you to community for a fast hour of great conversation, challenging topics, and more than a couple of ideas t twitter.com o take into my classroom. I say it all the time but we are in the world. Let's keep on rocking the classroom, & bringing the heat.

Autumn Den Boer @a_d_b3๐Ÿ”I've seen so much growth! After s students pushes really hard for a challenging text, she is able to do so much more twitter.com with texts that used to be right in her level. The range of text types are important for growth.
