This is the official blog of Dr. Roz Linder, an academic, K-12 Language Arts Specialist, former elementary school teacher, high school journalism teacher, and all-around rabble rouser. I am interested in how we equip students to compete in a global community that grows increasingly flatter every millisecond and the practical application of communication pedagogy and Common Core standards.Situated at the intersection of cultural, racial, social, and digital literacy, my blog is all about fostering and supporting the recognition that we don’t teach in your grandad’s America and being happy about that. Let's stop telling students what to think or believe, but prepare students to think critically and often.

    What a great way to turn this standard into something tangible and visible for kids. It seems SO abstract to elementary students. Thanks! I will be using this Monday morning!

    Hey Roz,
    This is excellent information that I will be implementing in my classroom. Thanks for the support. This activity will make reading comprehension much easier if students can actually make a real life connection.

    I love this idea! Teaching students how to make inferences has been difficult for me. This makes it solid and concrete!
