Article written by Dr. Rozlyn Linder

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.

    Hi Dr. Linder.

    We’re struggling with RL.2. Some teachers believe there is a slight difference between theme and central idea in literature while others believe it’s the same. We’ve search several sources that give conflicting responses. We’ve also had many conversations about whether or not an objective summary supports the theme. We’d love to know your thoughts.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
