Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book is a wonderfully timely text that makes the Common Core Standards manageable. The authors integrate theory and practice by supplying examples and testimonials to transform the standards from the abstract to the concrete. This is a must for any teacher or school revamping curricula to reflect the CCSS.” (Lynn Frick, English teacher 2011-10-18)

"With its relevant ideas and suggestions for incorporating the CCSS into current classroom practices, this book is a gift to ELA teachers who grapple with this renewed approach to reading and writing instruction. All educators will benefit from the invaluable resources aimed at helping students to 'run with the literacy stampede' of the 21st century." (Judith Sullivan, Supervisor of Secondary English Language 2011-10-18)

"The understanding and implementation of the ELA common core standards are woven seamlessly with practical, classroom tested ELA lessons. The attention to background information, structure and content is artful. This groundbreaking publication belongs in the hands of new and experienced ELA teachers." (Evelyn M. Connolly, Assistant Professor of Instruction in Literacy and ELA 2011-11-01)

"This book gives teachers both an understanding of the standards and a means by which they can put the standards into practice. It features sound pedagogy with the standards¸ emphasizing reliable assessment, teaching strategies, and suggestions for integrating media and technology. A must for ELA teachers seeking expert." (Victor Jaccarino, Team Leader 2011-11-07)

"A well-written text that benefits practicing educators and pre-service educators about to go into the field. Readers learn about the Common Core and its application in the classroom along with constructing powerful lesson plans to meet the needs of diverse classes. I encourage college educators to use this fabulous text." (Kjersti VanSlyke-Briggs, Associate Professor of Secondary Education 2011-11-10)

“This hands-on, research-based classroom guide for the CCSS presents classroom-tested lessons that are beneficial to all English teachers, from the neophyte to more experienced instructors. This book deserves an important place on the shelf of any current or aspiring English educator.” (Lawrence Butti, English Instructional Leader 2011-11-21)

Format: Paperback
The book is enjoyable to read especially with the author sidebars and tips. For me, the connection with educational philosophers was important as well as the lesson templates. I recommend this book to beginning teachers as well as those that are trying to adapt curriculum to the common core standards.

This book reads like advice from colleagues. It is a great resource and helps to guide you in meeting the "new standards."
It is useful for new teachers and very helpful for educators that are trying to adapt to the new standards.

Format: Paperback
Getting to the Core is an engaging, insightful, and all-encompassing text that should be read by educators everywhere. It answers and explains virtually any question about the CCSS and provides examples of unit and lesson plans. The plans are diverse, fully adaptable and pragmatic as both of the author's have implemented them successfully in their classrooms.
