Description - Common Core Literacy for Math, Science, and Technical Subjects by Katherine S. McKnight

Resources and guidance for the journey of Common Core
implementation
In this age of the Common Core State Standards, all content area
teachers must integrate literacy standards into their curriculum.
If you?re like most content area educators, you?re
feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of addressing all the new
standards, or you might just need a little extra help.
In this hands-on resource, Common Core literacy expert Katherine
McKnight offers secondary teachers a clear understanding of what
literacy looks like in math, science, and technical subjects.
McKnight gives educators proven teaching techniques that help
develop literacy skills in students. She also offers a wealth of
practical strategies and ready-to-use activities that content area
teachers can integrate seamlessly. Included are

Ideas for implementing the literacy requirements of the Common
Core across content areas

A selection of activities that support literacy skills and
build content knowledge in math, science, and technology
classrooms

An easy-to-use Difficulty Dial that indicates the complexity of
each activity

Robust student samples that bring the activities to life across
a variety of grade levels and subjects

Common Core Literacy for Math, Science, and Technical
Subjects is designed for practicality. With bonus web
downloads, a literacy resource guide, and countless ideas for
deepening content knowledge, this book provides excellent support
for rigorous Common Core implementation.

?A realist with an incisive wit, Katie?s robust
pedagogy and trenchant analysis inspire all of us to incorporate
the CCSS meaningfully in specific content areas. For her gifted
writing, let alone her substantive and easy-to-implement ideas,
this is a godsend for content area teachers. Move it to the top of
the priority reading stack.?

surrounding the new standards, and explains how to help students
find success. You?ll find this engaging book your

Core.?
