The Common Core Companion: The Standards Decoded, Grades 9-12
What They Say, What They Mean, How to Teach Them
“I love what Jim Burke has done to make the Standards less threatening and more useful for teachers. In particular, the indicators for what students and teachers should be doing, given the Standard, are extremely helpful; as are such a clear glossary and illuminating examples. All in all, The Common Core Companion is bound to be enormously useful and thus dog-eared!”
- Grant Wiggins, President, Authentic Education, Hopewell, NJ
That version of the 9-12 standards you wish you had
If you’re a high school teacher, no need to despair. Jim Burke has created a Common Core Companion for you, too. This time positioning the grades 9-10 standards alongside 11-12, it’s every bit the roadmap to what each standard says, what each standard means, and how to put that standard into practice across subjects. Jim clearly lays out:
- Key distinctions across grade levels
- Different content-area versions of each standard
- Explanations of each standard, with student prompts
- Content to cover, lesson ideas, and instructional techniques
- Glossary and adaptations for ELL students
