Overview

Common Core State Standards for Grades 2-3: Language Arts Instructional Strategies and Activities is designed to help teachers teach CORE standards using research-based, effective instructional strategies in combination with ready-to-use activities. These strategies include identifying similarities and differences, writing summaries and taking notes, creating non-linguistic representations, and suggestions for homework and practice. There are a variety of suggested texts as well as identified text exemplars that can easily be used with the suggested activities. The activities accommodate most teaching styles and can be used by the new teacher as well as the experienced teacher with very little advanced preparation required.

Editorial Reviews

Valerie Jones
I am excited to have Manville’s book as a rich resource for my teachers as we continue our transition to the CCSSs in our district. Teachers will immediately appreciate the multitude of activities, especially as they are asked this year to implement new activities on each under-touched Common Core standard and on standards on which students are under-performing. As the person responsible for curriculum and instruction, I can be confident that Manville’s laser-like attention to providing only research-based activities will help ensure success!
Sally Minnick
Classroom teachers and reading specialists will find these new resource books full of rich and targeted activities designed to strengthen students’ skills as they meet the requirements of the Common Core State Standards. Michelle Manville is a consummate professional Missouri educator who understands student needs and suggests effective strategies and literature to meet them.
Paula Chambers
As a special education teacher, the search for strategies that engage students while meeting Common Core State Standards is never-ending. This book delivers as a toolbox of ready-to-use strategies. All teachers will find this book to be a treasure to have while lesson planning and providing modifications for students with special needs while providing access to the Common Core.
