  1. Many high school students confront an urgent, double challenge: they struggle with reading comprehension, basic numeracy, and they have acquired less of the academic vocabulary and core knowledge—in science, history, civics, the arts, etc.—that are critical to their success. These two challenges are reciprocal; difficulty with reading comprehension limits students’ ability to gain new knowledge and vocabulary, and limited vocabulary and core knowledge hinder reading comprehension.  As a teacher in a college-prep high school with students facing this reality, how would (or do) you address it?
