The implementation of the Common Core standards is already in full-swing in many of the US public schools. Educators must be trained in how to teach to the new standards for ELA and mathematics, which were designed to be more rigorous and to better prepare students for college and the workplace. For teachers who work with the millions of English learners, the shift to the common standards is even more daunting. This reader-friendly book (and its companion volume for K-5 educators) provides clear guidance on how to make the standards accessible to ELLs and other at-risk learners. The book is grounded in the four ELA strands and the authors offer clear explanations of the expectations of the CCSS as well as a range of essential instructional strategies educators will need to implement when they work with the not so common learner.
