Overview

Here’s an essential resource for everyone interested in effectively implementing the Common Core State Standards for the English Language Arts in grades K–5. First, Maureen McLaughlin and Brenda Overturf explain the key points of the CCSS and describe how to use the Standards effectively in instruction. The authors delve into important topics such as assessment, implementation, and curriculum—as well as the implications of Common Core for beginning readers and special populations such as English learners, students with disabilities, and gifted and talented students.

The second part of this book is even more exciting: a detailed look at each of the College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading, combined with practical guidance on how to use those Standards to teach your students. Each Standard is aligned with accessible, appropriate, research-based strategies to help you integrate the ELA Standards into a series of rich, connected, instructional tasks.

Classroom applications, student examples, and valuable resources make this a book you’ll turn to again and again as you implement the CCSS in your classroom, school, and district.
