About the eBook

New hope for our students who struggle most

Under the best of circumstances meeting the Common Core can be a challenge. But if you’re a teacher of academically or linguistically diverse students—and who isn’t these days—then that "challenge" may sometimes feel more like a "fantasy." Finally, here are two expert educators who are brave enough, knowledgeable enough, and grounded enough to tackle this issue.

The grades 6-12 follow-up to Dove and Honigsfeld’s best-selling K-5 volume, this outstanding  resource is packed with all the advice, tools, and strategies you need to build struggling learners’ language skills in today’s Common Core climate. Armed with this book, you’ll

  • Better understand the 32 ELA anchor standards
  • Learn more about the specific skills "uncommon learners" need to master them
  • Discover new research-based teaching strategies aligned to each standard
  • Maximize the effectiveness of collaboration and co-teaching

Read this book, implement its strategies, and see the benefits for yourself. It may be your best hope for making the standards achievable for all kinds of "uncommon learners": ELLs, students with disabilities, speakers of nonstandard English, and other struggling students.

"Honigsfeld and Dove provide educators with research, insights, tools, and models for helping diverse students meet and exceed Common Core anchor literacy standards across disciplines. This book is a powerful guide for deepening classroom teaching practices and engaging in professional conversations that foster the enduring learning of content, language, and literacy."
--Jeff Zwiers, Researcher,
Stanford University, CA

"Uncommon learners are more common in classrooms than you think. . . .Thankfully, Honigsfeld and Dove show us the way. They pave a path to high expectations that actually shows us how to get there. Filled with examples and ideas, this book will contribute in significant ways to the success that all learners have for decades to come."
--Douglas Fisher, Professor,
