Editorial Reviews

The main strengths of Inside the Common Core Classroom: Practical ELA Strategies for Grades 9-12 are the sample lessons and units of study, which are useful as lenses for viewing one’s work in light of the CCSS. The scaffolding of tasks, showing accretion of experience with complex texts and tasks, is a useful template for constructing comparable units driven by other equally relevant questions.   The contexts and explanations of the standards make them more accessible than how they are usually written…The chief benefit of this book is that it shows the alignment between realistic, authentic learning and external assessment measures. -- Kathryn E. Pokalo, Conestoga High School (PA)
