Offers in-depth understanding of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and concrete methods to raise the level of instruction and accelerate the achievement of all students. The book, by Lucy Calkins and her colleagues at the Reading and Writing Project, is designed to guide and support principals, teachers, and professional learning communities in navigating the gap between their current literacy practices and CCSS ideals.
In addition to providing an analytical study of the standards, this guide will also help you and your colleagues implement the standards in ways that lift the level of teaching and learning throughout your school. “This book is encouraging and supportive. I feel prepared to roll up my sleeves and get to work alongside my staff,” says Liz Tetreault, principal of Port Salerno Elementary School in Florida.
