The summaries for each of the sections with anchor standards are straightforward and easy to read. The structures for lesson planning and tools to use with students are quite basic and many do not go beyond a graphic organizer. I will use some of the games and language reteaching for students who need additional help meeting the standards. A very large book (in size) could be condensed.
A great book to remind us that best practices are best practices... no matter what standards or content you are teaching. This book provides practical, easy-to-implement strategies that can be used across all content areas. I have used some with teachers in staff development in learning about the Common Core Standards. It truly spans K-5. Ms. Owocki shows how it looks at each grade level.A must read for all teachers.
