Implement the Common Core with Confidence
The Common Core is a challenge and an opportunity for literacy education. Harnessing the Common Core Standards to Achieve Higher Levels of Reading and Writing, Mary Ehrenworth's Course at the Heinemann Digital Campus, helps you make the most of Common Core in grades K–12.
Mary shows how to achieve a high-quality implementation of the Common Core standards through curricular planning, professional collaboration, and instructional best-practices. With video, student examples, and opportunities for feedback and collaboration, this course readies you to accept the challenge Common Core presents rather than be forced to teach reactively to it.
