Whose responsibility is it to provide consistent, explicit instruction in literacy? Recent research could not be clearer: every teacher must do so, no matter what subject or grade level. The writers of the Common Core State Standards agree. Allyson Burnett and Elaine McEwan-Adkins have compiled an essential literacy toolbox for today's conscientious educator. Each strategy is clear, simple, easy to follow, and rooted in current literacy research. Each strategy is applicable across multiple texts in multiple subject areas. What is most impressive is that each strategy balances the unique demands of reading comprehension, writing clarity, and metacognition. This toolbox has been invaluable in my own planning, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. --Christopher D. Schmidt, Secondary English Teacher, Dallas, TX
Teaching literacy and strategic thinking skills to students must be the responsibility of a school's entire faculty. 20 Literacy Strategies to Meet the Common Core now provides every teacher, regardless of content area, a practical, focused set of tools to prepare his or students not only to become critical thinkers but also to become independent learners. --Raymond Lowery, Principal, Global Paradigm School, Cairo, Egypt
20 Literacy Strategies to Meet the Common Core demystifies the academic rigor demanded of the Common Core State Standards. The authors present immediately usable strategies founded on evidence-based practices and detailed graphic organizers that will relieve teachers of the burden of marrying the intent of the standards with the reality of the materials typically available in schools. Whether used in the lesson preparation or during professional development activities, this guide virtually guarantees success in making the transition away from random standards to the Common Core. --Beth Madison, Principal, Robert Gray Middle School, Portland, Oregon
