Implement the Common Core for ELA without all the stress

A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core uses the often-neglected anchor standards to get to the heart of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)—teaching students the skills they need to be college and career ready. Each anchor standard is broken down into its key points, and a discussion of each anchor standard's central purpose helps outline the context for each required skill. This easy-to-read guide gives educators the kind of clear explanations, examples, and strategies they need to feel comfortable teaching the CCSS, and shows how CCSS skills can be integrated into virtually any existing lesson plan.

Getting a firm grasp of the anchor standards is the quickest way to start teaching the key concepts of the CCSS, and this user-friendly guide is designed to pave the way for both the first-time teacher and the experienced pro.



Autorentext

DAVE STUART JR. teaches English and world history in Cedar Springs, Michigan. He also writes a popular blog on teaching the Common Core State Standards, called Teaching the Core (www.teachingthecore.com). With over ten thousand monthly readers, Dave's blog has been a beacon of light for teachers who refuse to freak out about the Common Core. He also speaks and gives workshops on literacy instruction, and he has served as an adjunct professor at Aquinas College.



Klappentext

In A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core, Dave Stuart stands between us and the Common Core standards like an Eagle Scout with all the badges who has prepared for this opportunity to help educators not only survive, but thrive, in the era of the Common Core.... I find substantial encouragement and comfort in Dave's practical and optimistic approach toward the standards, for he says, in short, let us accept them as an opportunity to improve our teaching, an invitation to learn.
Jim Burke, author of The Common Core Companion and The English Teacher's Companion

Fans of Stuart's wonderful blog, Teaching the Core, will find a wealth of insight and practical advice here on what the new standards say students should be able to do and how teachers can help them do it.... If you're a teacher or school administrator wondering how to help your students play the academic intellectual game, Dave Stuart is your guy!
Gerald Graff, professor of English and Education, University of Illinois at Chicago; 2008 president, Modern Language Association of America

Wouldn't it be great if teachers could just relax about the Common Core and have a guide to show them how to implement the standards while keeping their own teaching style? Packed with clear descriptions, examples, activities, and techniques and presented in a user-friendly format, A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core is the book you need to make the goals of the Common Core comprehensible and the fastest way to make Common Core happen in any classroom.

Author, blogger, and teacher Dave Stuart has devoted much of his time to understanding the standards and helping others figure out how best to teach them. Along the way, he discovered that all you really need to know to start teaching the Common Core is that it's about making students college- and career-ready, and that before diving into the details you need to fully understand the anchor standards. That's what this book provides: all the information you need, with none of the drama you could do without.
