The quality of instruction is the most important factor in helping students meet the Common Core Standards. That's why Gretchen Owocki
's Common Core Lesson Book
empowers teachers with a comprehensive framework for implementation that enhances existing curriculum and extends it to meet Common Core goals.
"Children," writes Gretchen (author of The RTI Daily Planning Book), "need teachers who believe in the power of meaningful reading as a context for instruction." She breaks the CCSS reading standards into manageable chunks that emphasize engaged, authentic reading and differentiated teaching. For each standard, she offers:
- a clear description of what it asks from students
- an instructional decision tree that connects assessment to planning
- instructional strategies that gradually release responsibility to students
- techniques for intensifying instruction when readers need more support.
"In implementing the standards," writes Gretchen, "we want children to deeply engage with multiple forms of reading. I wrote this book to offer encouragement to stay grounded in meaningful instruction, and to offer a set of strategies that emphasize meaningful reading." Respond to the Common Core with The Common Core Lesson Book-you'll help students meet the standards, and so much more.
