“To reach their potential, children need an engaging environment and a reason to learn. This book is aimed at helping teachers implement quality Common Core instruction around this principle.”
—Gretchen Owocki

The quality of instruction is the most important factor in helping students meet the Common Core Standards. That’s why Gretchen Owocki’s Common Core Lesson Book empowers teachers with a comprehensive framework for implementation that enhances existing curriculum and extends it to meet Common Core goals.

“Children,” writes Gretchen (author of The RTI Daily Planning Book), “need teachers who believe in the power of meaningful reading as a context for instruction.” She breaks the CCSS reading standards into manageable chunks that emphasize engaged, authentic reading and differentiated teaching. For each standard, she offers:

  • a clear description of what it asks from students
  • an instructional decision tree that connects assessment to planning
  • instructional strategies that gradually release responsibility to students
  • techniques for intensifying instruction when readers need more support.

"In implementing the standards,” writes Gretchen, “we want children to deeply engage with multiple forms of reading. I wrote this book to offer encouragement to stay grounded in meaningful instruction, and to offer a set of strategies that emphasize meaningful reading.” Respond to the Common Core with The Common Core Lesson Book—you’ll help students meet the standards, and so much more.

“I rarely write reviews for the professional materials that I purchase, but this is well worth the effort. I am the Common Core crazy person in my school. I have tons of resources on the Common Core but this one gives practical strategies for each of the standards. What I really like about the book is that it has strategies for ELL students and intensive work for students that need the reinforcement. Do you probably use some of these strategies? Yes, but the book will help you organize and focus on a specific standard. I love the graphic organizers. While Lucy Calkins' book can give you overall information on the Common Core this book is practical and teacher friendly.”
