From the Back Cover
"In A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core, Dave Stuart stands between us and the Common Core standards like an Eagle Scout with all the badges who has prepared for this opportunity to help educators not only survive, but thrive, in the era of the Common Core.??.??.??. I find substantial encouragement and comfort in Dave's practical and optimistic approach toward the standards, for he says, in short, let us accept them as an opportunity to improve our teaching, an invitation to learn."
―Jim Burke, author of The Common Core Companion and The English Teacher's Companion
"Fans of Stuart's wonderful blog, Teaching the Core, will find a wealth of insight and practical advice here on what the new standards say students should be able to do and how teachers can help them do it.??.??.??. If you're a teacher or school administrator wondering how to help your students play the academic intellectual game, Dave Stuart is your guy!"
―Gerald Graff, professor of English and Education, University of Illinois at Chicago; 2008 president, Modern Language Association of America
Wouldn't it be great if teachers could just relax about the Common Core and have a guide to show them how to implement the standards while keeping their own teaching style? Packed with clear descriptions, examples, activities, and techniques and presented in a user-friendly format, A Non-Freaked Out Guide to Teaching the Common Core is the book you need to make the goals of the Common Core comprehensible and the fastest way to make Common Core happen in any classroom.
Author, blogger, and teacher Dave Stuart has devoted much of his time to understanding the standards and helping others figure out how best to teach them. Along the way, he discovered that all you really need to know to start teaching the Common Core is that it's about making students college- and career-ready, and that before diving into the details you need to fully understand the anchor standards. That's what this book provides: all the information you need, with none of the drama you could do without.
