Nearly every state has independently adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), making this practical guide an indispensable resource for grades 3-5 teachers and teachers-in-training. Leading authorities explain each of the English language arts (ELA) standards and vividly show how to implement them. The book is filled with grade-specific classroom vignettes, instructional strategies and activities, sample lesson plans, and discussion questions. Chapters cover the major ELA strands: reading (literature, informational texts, and foundational skills); writing; speaking and listening; and language. Issues of assessment and technology integration are also explored. An appendix includes thematic units for each grade level demonstrating ways to embed CCSS/ELA standards into content-area instruction.

"Morrow and her coeditors have collaborated with a talented group of contributors to provide this extremely important work, which illustrates how teachers and instructional leaders can apply the CCSS to transform instruction in grades 3-5. The book offers multiple visions of effective instruction that gives all students access to high-quality literature, including informational and multimedia texts; integrated curricula; reading and writing connections; and content learning."--Victoria J. Risko, EdD, Department of Teaching and Learning (Emerita), Vanderbilt University; past president, International Reading Association

"This is a tremendously useful volume for curriculum leaders and teachers in grades 3-5. The book provides a solid conceptual understanding of the CCSS/ELA. It then moves into a wealth of research-based instructional practices to help students reach higher levels of accomplishment in all aspects of the language arts. The classroom vignettes bring the practices to life. This is the single best resource for aligning instruction with the CCSS that I have seen to date."--Kathryn Au, PhD, CEO, SchoolRise, LLC; past president, International Reading Association

"This is the book I've been waiting for. The explanations and commentary by respected researchers are deep, honest, and useful. The book has already helped me plan for next year with a more organized, systematic implementation of the CCSS. The vignettes are so grounded in the reality of the classroom that I found myself writing 'Do this!' next to many of them."--Kathy Harris, fifth-grade teacher, Olivet Elementary School, Santa Rosa, California

"Finally, we have an expert reading of the CCSS/ELA that not only helps us understand the larger political and educative context of each major skill strand but also gives educators meaningful strategies for implementation. This book is a 'must' for anyone involved in elementary education, from classroom teachers to those creating district policy. The authors refreshingly and convincingly remind us that the adoption of the CCSS is an exciting and at times perilous journey, and that we need to move forward with our eyes wide open."--Benjamin Grossman, MA, district-level instructional specialist, New York City Public Schools
