Editorial Reviews

Review

"This multifaceted volume provides not only a sound understanding of the CCSS/ELA, but also practical ideas for implementation. Experts in the field of literacy offer meaningful insights into essential topics, from phonemic awareness to text complexity."--Maureen McLaughlin, EdD, Reading Department, East Stroudsburg University; President (2013-2014), International Reading Association

"Morrow, Shanahan, and Wixson have collaborated with a talented group of contributors to provide this extremely important work. Taken together, the chapters illustrate how teachers and instructional leaders can apply the CCSS to transform instruction. The book offers multiple visions of effective instruction that gives all students access to high-quality literature, including informational and multimedia texts; integrated curricula; reading and writing connections; and content learning."--Victoria J. Risko, EdD, Department of Teaching and Learning (Emerita), Vanderbilt University

"This book is coming on the scene at exactly the right time--it's just what informed educators need. Chapters explain and analyze the challenges and demands of each ELA standard. Suggestions for implementation, vignettes of classroom practice, lists of children’s literature, and sample units are just a few of the volume's user-friendly features. The broad overview of the standards, as well as the supporting materials, should inspire classroom teachers and administrators to order their copies immediately. This is also an ideal text for the college classroom."--Lace S. Cassidy, PhD, Department of Literacy Education, New Jersey City University

"Teachers gain extensive background knowledge and information on how to incorporate the CCSS into classroom practice. I am excited about the ideas I learned from this book that I will be able to include in my classroom instruction. The lesson vignettes provide very helpful concrete examples."--Courtney Bartlett, MEd, second-grade teacher, Sunnyview Primary School, Knoxville, Tennessee

"This is a great resource for anyone in PreK-2 education who is trying to navigate the CCSS. It breaks the ELA standards down into easy-to-understand terms, explains the purpose behind each one, and provides interesting, meaningful teaching strategies."--Stephany Dillon, MEd, first-grade teacher, Tecumseh-Harrison Elementary School, Vincennes, Indiana

I love when people focus on early childhood. So many Common Core Standard books miss the developmental stages of our youngest students. This book is right on target.

If you want an academic book on CCSS and early childhood literacy, this is for you.

If you are a teacher like me and want something useful for the classroom. This book is not for you.

I returned my copy.
