This book is helpful in understanding the common core standards. I liked the questioning stems given in developing strong lesson plans. I would have liked more common core strategies and lesson ideas in the text, but it is a great place to start!

Jim Burke has not disappointed his colleagues and fans of his other esteemed works. His new endeavor provides teachers with a user-friendly explanation and guide to the Common Core for middle school language arts teachers. (There is also a high school version). It provides what students will do to meet the standards and what teachers will do to teach the standards...fabulous resource!
