Quality Reading Instruction in the Age of Common Core Standards

International Reading Assoc.

What are the best ways to teach key literacy skills, keeping the Common Core State Standards at the fore? How can you fill in what’s missing from the CCSS document? Most important, how do you make adjustments in your own classroom, based on your students’ specific needs?

Field-leading scholars come together here to shed light on the 10 College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Reading, to define the literacy skills that students must develop to achieve the Standards, and to give practical suggestions for meeting the challenges the Standards present in real-world classrooms. Chapters cover key areas of the CCSS, such as informational text, text complexity, vocabulary development, and making the most of 21st-century tools and technology—and offer solutions for a number of critical areas not specifically included in the CCSS document, such as early literacy, engagement, teaching learners from diverse backgrounds, and Response to Intervention. The final chapter provides the research foundations for the CCSS to give you a rich, well-rounded view.

"Try This!" segments and discussion questions make this a perfect resource for personal study, preservice teacher education, and school-based professional learning communities.

Inaugural title in the Common Core State Standards for Literacy Series, edited by Susan B. Neuman and D. Ray Reutzel.

Vocabulary forms a relentless divide between children who succeed and those who do not. This divide is often between poor children and their privileged counterparts. Without vocabulary knowledge, children cannot interpret text meaningfully or respond in ways that enable them to fully participate in classroom discussions.All About Wordsis a practical guide designed to help early childhood teachers take advantage of the unique opportunity provided by the Common Core State Standards. It offers strategies for planning and presenting vocabulary instruction and for monitoring children’s word learning progress, along with helpful appendices that provide specific guidance on which words to teach. Each chapter includes ideas to support home-school connections, recognizing the important role parents play in children’s vocabulary development. Throughout, the authors encourage readers to examine day-to-day classroom issues, making it an ideal resource for professional development.
