Common Core for the Not-So-Common Learner, Grades 6-12: English Language Arts Strategies(2013)
Under the best of circumstances meeting the Common Core can be a challenge. But if you’re a teacher of academically or linguistically diverse students—and who isn’t these days—then that “challenge” may sometimes feel more like a “fantasy.” Finally, here are two expert educators who are brave enough, knowledgeable enough, and grounded enough to tackle this issue.
The grades 6-12 follow-up to Dove and Honigsfeld’s best-selling K-5 volume, this outstanding resource is packed with all the advice, tools, and strategies you need to build struggling learners’ language skills in today’s Common Core climate. Armed with this book, you’ll
- Better understand the 32 ELA anchor standards
- Learn more about the specific skills “uncommon learners” need to master them
- Discover new research-based teaching strategies aligned to each standard
- Maximize the effectiveness of collaboration and co-teaching
Read this book, implement its strategies, and see the benefits for yourself. It may be your best hope for making the standards achievable for all kinds of “uncommon learners”: ELLs, students with disabilities, speakers of nonstandard English, and other struggling students.
