ABSTRACT
This article explores the requirements of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as they apply to literacy teacher educators and suggests strategies for literacy methods courses for teacher candidates and practicing teachers at the elementary level. The article answers the question: what do teacher candidates need to know about text complexity and reading comprehension as defined by the CCSS? Five teaching modules are provided for teaching these concepts based on a cycle of inquiry to identify and answer driving questions about text complexity and the CCSS.
