Overview

"To reach their potential, children need an engaging environment and a reason to learn. This book is aimed at helping teachers implement quality Common Core instruction around this principle."
-Gretchen Owocki

The quality of instruction is the most important factor in helping students meet the Common Core Standards. That's why Gretchen Owocki's Common Core Lesson Book empowers teachers with a comprehensive framework for implementation that enhances existing curriculum and extends it to meet Common Core goals.

"Children," writes Gretchen (author of The RTI Daily Planning Book), "need teachers who believe in the power of meaningful reading as a context for instruction." She breaks the CCSS reading standards into manageable chunks that emphasize engaged, authentic reading and differentiated teaching. For each standard, she offers:

  • a clear description of what it asks from students
  • an instructional decision tree that connects assessment to planning
  • instructional strategies that gradually release responsibility to students
  • techniques for intensifying instruction when readers need more support.

"In implementing the standards," writes Gretchen, "we want children to deeply engage with multiple forms of reading. I wrote this book to offer encouragement to stay grounded in meaningful instruction, and to offer a set of strategies that emphasize meaningful reading." Respond to the Common Core with The Common Core Lesson Book-you'll help students meet the standards, and so much more.

Meet the Author

Gretchen Owocki powerfully demonstrates the importance of bringing meaningful instruction to not only traditional reading-instruction topics like comprehension, but also to contemporary issues such as Common Core and RTI. In the bestselling titles The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8; The Common Core Lesson Book, K-5; The Common Core Writing Book, K-5; and The RTI Daily Planning Book, she masterfully breaks down instructional issues and strategies into manageable chunks that help teachers differentiate instruction, meet curricular goals, and improve as practitioners. For more than 15 years, she has helped teachers find researched-based practices that improve learning by letting students experience curriculum as part of their own development. In other Heinemann titles such as Comprehension; Make Way for Literacy; and Time for Literacy Centers, she shares teaching that engages students through authentic, meaningful tasks and challenges them to grow as readers and writers. A professor at Saginaw Valley State University, Gretchen is a Heinemann Professional Development Services provider. ยป Read Gretchen's article "Setting a Course to Maximize the Potential of CCSS" in the Heinemann PD Journal.

    I am a National Board Certified teacher of first grade in Louisi

    I am a National Board Certified teacher of first grade in Louisiana. We are adopting the common core in stages. K-1 starts in the 2012-2013 school year. I enjoyed getting my Board Certificaito and learning new strategies but could seldom put them into use because of our "fidelity" to our reading basal. I am pumped up about the comming curriculum and the deeper teaching we will be doing. We will have time to use those strategies I have been itching to use. This book appears to have many ideas to dive deeply into reading and writing. I can't wait for it to come in. It looks like just what the doctor, I mean district, ordered!!!
