Overview

This is an essential resource for everyone interested in effectively implementing the Common Core State Standards for the English Language Arts in middle school and high school classrooms. Maureen McLaughlin and Brenda Overturf explain the key points of the CCSS and describe how to use the Standards effectively in grades 6–12 instruction. The authors delve into important topics such as assessment, implementation, and curriculum—as well as the implications of the Common Core for special populations such as English learners, students with disabilities, and gifted and talented students. In addition to a focus on disciplinary literacy throughout the book, there is an entire chapter devoted to helping you teach students to use disciplinary strategies to engage, guide, and extend their thinking.

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 middle school and high school 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 teaching tools make this the resource you’ll turn to again and again as you implement the CCSS in your classroom, school, and district.
