About the Common Core Standards
The state of Illinois has adopted the Common Core State Standards. These standards describe what students are expected to learn. Student learning is based on these standards throughout the year, and the state test includes questions that assess whether students have the skills described in the standards.
This workbook has been expanded to include core skills exercises focused on the reading, writing, and language skills described in the Common Core State Standards. The exercises have a range or formats and are designed to challenge students. As students gain the reading comprehension skills that will assist them on the state test, they will also develop these broader skills that will help them in all areas.
