  • Identifying Anchor Texts from Treasures for the Universal Theme: RELATIONSHIPS
     
    By August 13, most Treasures selections below will have links to text complexity analysis Placemats. Many selections will also have one or more Lessons utilizing Text-Dependent Questions, to address the specific qualitative and quantitative text complexity features identified.
     
    The linked placemats and lessons were developed by teams of LAUSD teachers, and are intended as guides and starting points for teachers to adapt to the reader-and-task needs of their particular students.
