Common Core English Language Arts in a PLC at Work™

Grades 3-5

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are part of a decades-long state-led initiative to establish fundamental educational learning targets that ensure all students are college and career ready in the 21st century. Common Core English Language Arts in a PLC at Work™, Grades 3-5 provides strategies and tips for grades 3-5 teachers to integrate the CCSS for English language arts in their instruction, curriculum, assessment, and intervention practices.
