About the Author

Gretchen Owocki powerfully demonstrates the importance of bringing meaningful instruction to not only traditional reading-instruction topics like comprehension, but also to contemporary issues such as Common Core and RTI. In the bestselling titles The Common Core Reading Book, 6-8; The Common Core Lesson Book, K-5; The Common Core Writing Book, K-5; and The RTI Daily Planning Book, she masterfully breaks down instructional issues and strategies into manageable chunks that help teachers differentiate instruction, meet curricular goals, and improve as practitioners. For more than 15 years, she has helped teachers find researched-based practices that improve learning by letting students experience curriculum as part of their own development. In other Heinemann titles such as Comprehension; Make Way for Literacy; and Time for Literacy Centers, she shares teaching that engages students through authentic, meaningful tasks and challenges them to grow as readers and writers. A professor at Saginaw Valley State University, Gretchen is a Heinemann Professional Development Services provider. » Read Gretchen's article "Setting a Course to Maximize the Potential of CCSS" in the Heinemann PD Journal.

I rarely write reviews for the professional materials that I purchase but this is well worth the effort. I am the Common Core crazy person in my school. I have tons of resources on the Common Core but this one gives practical strategies for each of the standards. What I really like about the book is that it has strategies for ELL students and intensive work for students that need the reinforcement. Do you probably use some of these srtategies? Yes, but the book will help you organize and focus on a specific standard. I love the graphic organizers. The ONLY thing that would make this book even better would be examples of how the author uses the graphic organizers. While Lucy Calkins' book can give you overall information on the Common Core this book is practical and teacher friendly.

I teach first grade and have found many useful things in this book.

A wealth of printable pages that help with main idea, beginning-middle-end, etc. They make great exit slips and help keep my instruction focused.

I've used things from the book in large group instruction, small group instruction and literacy centers.

I would highly recommend this to fellow elementary educators.

This book is a well-organized manual to implementing CC in your classroom. Each CC anchor is explained for EACH grade level k-5. It is organized into Reading literature, reading informational text, teaching fluency, teaching speaking, and teaching reading. In the first section Owocki explains each anchor for Reading Literature. Each anchor has strategies for teaching that anchor for each grade level. Then she further gives ways to help struggling students and ways to challenge others. The next section does the same for Reading Informational texts. I found the suggested lists of texts to teach such things as cause and effect, theme, and comparing texts on the same subject to be one of the most helpful. I teach in a small k-6 school and am suggesting my school buy one of these for each teacher. It will make life a lot easier for them and more productive for the students.

If you are looking for a resource that will give you practical help for tomorrow, this is it. As a K-5 teacher, I really like how it shows the progression of the standards from K to 5...even a grade level teacher will appreciate seeing how their grade fits within the continuum of learning. The best part to me is the wealth of strategies for teaching each standard and the clear directions on how to use them. I now feel that I have many more teaching tools in my toolbox. Not only that, but the graphic organizers and the materials needed to implement the ideas have been included, and are ready-to-use. But unlike many teacher resources, the materials can be used in many contexts without needing to be tweaked or recreated. This is a clear, concise guide to the reading standards and how to achieve them. I just ordered Ms. Owocki's writing book and expect it to be just as helpful. I am very glad I discovered these books.

At a time when many teachers are scrambling to begin implementing the Common Core State Standards in their classrooms, I found this book a helpful resource to have around as I try to raise the rigor of my reading instruction. There are many reproducible graphic organizers as well as quick blurbs to tailor instruction to each grade level. I've found it easy to flip through and find activities to relate to concepts that are already present in my district's scope and sequence. I'm not sure that most of the ideas are anything too earth-shattering, but it is helpful to have lots of CCSS ideas grouped into one handy text.

None of the ideas/worksheets are mind-blowing and something 'I've never thought of,' but I like the way everything is organized by standard and grade level. Very easy to use and copy (spiral binding). If you are new to Common Core (like me) this have been very helpful and worth every penny.

I bought this book with high hopes of getting some really great resources. If you are familiar with the Common Core Standards, then this book probably wouldn't be helpful. If you are completely new to the standards, have no materials (mainly graphic organizers), you may like this. The book just provided a lot of graphic organizers that looked like something for third grade and over. They give you ideas, but nothing I found to be out of the box or to meet the needs of the rigor. I returned this book.
