A quick start guide


Ryan, a former high school language arts teacher now associated with the nonprofit organization Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning, and Frazee, a former middle and high school teacher, principal, and educational consultant associated with Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning, provide middle school English teachers and school leaders with information on the Common Core Standards for English language arts for middle school. They provide an overview of the structure and organization of the standards, then consider the reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language standards in depth and how they are designed to help middle school students build on and extend skills from earlier grades. They explain how to create lessons that use the instructional strategies detailed in Classroom Instruction That Works, 2nd Edition by Ceri Dean et al., and end with three sample lessons. There is no index.
