    If there was a rating of "0" stars, this book would get it. Unless of course, it was means as a joke, written by someone who has only heard a few buzz words, but has no clue about what's been happening on the educational front for the last 20-something years. For example, did you know (elementary educators, you're going to love this one), "Students, upon entering elementary school, are first exposed to narrative texts. They are first taught the elements of story such as plot, the setting, the climax, and characters. They master this storytelling format by the third grade. It is at this point that students are first introduced to text that is of an expository nature." They are first given a text, one to two paragraphs long, about a topic of interest." Really? On What Planet?

    Here's another example of the marvels contained herein: "The Common Core standards were created to provide a clear and consistent for educators of what students are expected to learn." Let's do a close reading of that sentence. Got your pencils ready? You noticed it too? There's a word missing. Good job.

    Later on that page: "If we look at our world today, it is difficult to deny the fact that computer technology and the World Wide Web figure prominent in the majority of day to day business." Hmmm.. I wonder if the common core expects grammar? You're not likely to find the answer in this "book".

    In the section, "Why is Writing Important?" we learn that "The Common Core standards has made teaching writing a mandatory and required goal in many academic programs. In light of this educational reform...." Are you serious? Which one of you educators out there has not been teaching writing? Well, whoever you are, you better get ready, cause you're going to soon. (On the other hand, since this sentence does not say that writing is to be taught in ALL academic programs, maybe you will luck out.)

    But don't worry, fellow educators, it doesn't matter because, "As soon as students understand the value, the importance and the purpose of learning these skills, they will become determined and motivated to attain them. They will be better able to see the connection that the more skilled you are, the more successful you can be in your life". There you have it. Problem solved. Why didn't we just think to clue to kids into how much learning and success in school would help them in life? This is BY FAR the worst book I have ever purchased. It's ridiculous actually.
