Book Description

Oct. 4 2011 Common Core
The first books to present specific guidance for teaching the Common Core State Standards

Forty-three states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands have signed on to adopt the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The need for curriculum guides to assist teachers in helping students meet these standards has become imperative. Created by teachers, for teachers, the research-based curriculum maps in this book present a comprehensive, coherent sequence of thematic units for teaching the skills outlined in the CCSS for English language arts in Grades K-5. The maps address every standard in the CCSS, yet are flexible and adaptable to accommodate diverse teaching styles.

  • Each grade is broken down into six units that include focus standards, suggested works, sample activities and assessments, lesson plans, and more
  • Teachers can use the maps to plan their year and craft their own more detailed lesson plans

Any teacher, school, or district that chooses to follow the Common Core maps can be confident that they are adhering to the standards.



Product Details


Product Description

From the Back Cover

The new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are meant to be taught within the context of a "content-rich curriculum," but they don't specify what content students need to master. Common Core Curriculum Maps in English Language Arts, written by teachers, for teachers, is designed to assist teachers by providing detailed curriculum "maps" for teaching the CCSS for English Language Arts within a coherent sequence of thematic units by grade level.

  • Each grade includes a "standards checklist" showing which standards are covered in which unit.

  • Each unit contains focus standards, student objectives, suggested works, sample activities and assessments, a sample lesson plan with guidance for differentiated instruction, and more.

  • Standards citations are included after each sample activity/assessment to indicate alignment.

  • Every standard in the CCSS is covered in the maps; most more than once.

The maps are flexible and adaptable to accommodate diverse teaching styles. Any teacher, school, or district can use this book to plan their year and to craft their own more detailed lesson plans with confidence that they are adhering to the standards.

"Common Core Curriculum Maps in English Language Arts is a wonderful tool for classroom teachers who have all they can do to handle their countless daily responsibilities. With the inclusion of essential questions, and even ways to bring in music and art, the maps in this book are ready-made for teachers to use as they see fit. The maps are a helpful tool for implementing the Common Core State Standards in the classroom and provide a welcome and long overdue system of support for America's educators."—David P. Driscoll, former president of the Council of Chief State School Officers and current chair of the National Assessment Governing Board

"The curriculum maps in this book offer us a magnificent opportunity to rekindle the magic of learning in America's classrooms! Teachers will be excited to bring content-rich, integrated learning experiences to life using these maps as a guide." —Teresa Chance, Professional Development Director for Rogers Public Schools, Arkansas

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought it was Dec 9 2012
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I thought that whoever created these units used items that were commonly taught in my grade level (5th) to create the units. The 5th grade units have social studies incorporated in them, but social studies that has absolutely nothing to do with the social studies we study in 5th grade. The Renaissance? In 5th grade? Native American cultures is ok, but it has us doing this toward the end of the year, not the beginning. Unit 4 is Civil War. We learn about the colonies and the American Revolution, not the Civil War (in my state anyway). Playing with words and Coming of Age are ok units, but overall I was very disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide Aug. 7 2012
By Pat in AZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent guilde to use in homeschooling. I wanted to make certain the children are meeting the common core currculum standards without being a slave to it. I can follow the suggested books and activities or modify them and be sure that we cover everything the kids need to learn during the year. It even has suggestions for faster and slower learners. I'm extremely pleased with it. Although I don't like "teaching to a test," I do want to make sure that they are mastering the skills they need.

This book is awesome! As a 5th grade teacher whose state is switching to the common core next year, I was ecstatic when this book arrived. This book has great ideas and lesson examples as well as suggested reading for each unit and goal. This is a must have for any elementary language arts teacher. I have shared with all staff here and several are ordering this for their classroom as well.
