Wednesday, March 20, 2013 Book Study: Common Core for the Not-So-Common Learner
Learn the strategies you need to teach common standards to diverse learners.
The elementary years are a critical opportunity to help students of all backgrounds meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards. In this realistic, thorough book, Common Core for the Not-So-Common Learner, Grades K-5: English Language Arts Strategies, authors Maria Dove and Andrea Honigsfield show how to help every K-5 student, including English Learners, students with disabilities, speakers of nonstandard English, and other struggling learners, meet the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts. The book study’s four sessions will be facilitated by Debra Cole, ELL Instructional Specialist, MELL. All educators and administrators working with ELLs K-5 are invited to participate.
At each meeting we will review & discuss:
• Anticipated Outcomes
• Instructional Challenges
• Promising Classroom Practices
• Common Core Standards—(Un)Common Reflection Questions
