Quarter turns, which are small pivots teachers can make in the classroom, can be used across the content areas when a complex, grade-level text must be read and understood by all students. Some of the quarter turns are small changes to the text layout while others are more involved discussion structures. In all cases, the quarter turns identified in this resource have been designed to engage more students more frequently with more text.
