Product Description

Tools for Conquering the Common Core is the ideal resource for meeting the challenge of more rigorous standards and tests. It provides thirty-five classroom-ready techniques for targeting the reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language skills that are at the heart of today’s ELA/literacy standards. With easy-to-follow steps, ready-to-go reproducibles, and classroom examples, this book empowers teachers to develop essential literacy skills without sacrificing their regular content and curriculum.
