SIRS Discoverer & Common Core

Check it out!  Visual Literacy – part of SIRS Discoverer’s special  Spotlight of the Month – directly supports Common Core Reading Standards detailed in Integration of Knowledge and Ideas category.

Visual LiteracyEvery month, a highly-visual graphic with corresponding critical thinking questions is featured.  The image, questions and corresponding article are carefully selected and crafted by SIRS Editorial staff in support of Common Core Reading Standards requiring students to:

  • Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
  • Use information gained from illustrations (e.g., maps, photographs) and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (e.g., where, when, why, and how key events occur).

For more information about how SIRS Discoverer aligns to Common Core Standards, view this datasheet.
