Of the hundreds of books and resources that have been published in support of the Common Core implementation, few have addressed meeting the needs of culturally and linguistically-diverse learners, or struggling students in general. These books -- written for classroom teachers -- offer an array of proven instructional strategies that provide diverse learners access to the rigorous academic demands of the CCSS ELA standards. In contrast, this book focuses on the requisite shifts in schoolwide practices that collectively support the academic growth of diverse learners. Examples of these shifts include:
Collaborative planning, assessment, and instructionMoving from teacher-directed instruction to an inquiry-based, highly participatory, engaging school experienceIntegrating the teaching of academic language with the teaching of content.

"Dove, Honigsfeld, and Cohan recognize the urgent need for practices to change on a schoolwide basis so that diverse learners can be positioned to succeed with the Common Core. Beyond Core Expectations: a Schoolwide Framework for Serving the Not-So-Common Learner outlines inclusive practices so that all students - English learners, students with disabilities, and other marginalized groups - are included in these important conversations. The book's practical toolkit provides educators with ample opportunities to evaluate and collaborate around ways in which they can provide a more equitable learning environment for their diverse students. I highly recommend this book to those who wish to ensure that all students' strengths and needs are considered during the implementation of the Common Core."

-- Diane Staehr Fenner, President

"Common Core for the Not-So-Common Learner provides a masterfully blend of instructional practices with a deep understanding of the CCSS, and presents them in a way that makes sense to educators on the front lines of implementation. In Beyond Core Expectations, Dove, Honigsfeld, and Cohan work to the next level by presenting a coherent framework for schoolwide instructional inclusiveness. This book is an essential guide for educators with a vision for true college and career readiness for ALL students, driven by sound curriculum, instruction and assessment practices."

-- Cheryl H. Champ, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction
