The Common Core State Standards require students to do more with knowledge and language than ever before. Rather than be mere consumers of knowledge, students must now become creators, critics, and communicators of ideas across disciplines. Yet in order to take on these new and exciting roles, many students need daily teaching with an extra emphasis on accelerating their academic communication skills. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms describes seven research-based teaching practices for developing complex language and literacy skills across grade levels and disciplines: using complex texts, fortifying complex output, fostering academic interaction, clarifying complex language, modeling, guiding, and designing instruction. Most important, you will find clear descriptions and examples of how these essential practices can--and should--be woven together in real lessons. You will also find the following: Classroom activities based on the practices Dozens of classroom examples from lessons in different grade levels and disciplines Detailed lessons with annotations focused on language and literacy development Strategies and tools for building system-wide capacity for sustained growth in the practices Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms is a concise guide for helping us improve our practices to strengthen two vital pillars that support student learning: academic language and disciplinary literacy.
In line with the Common Core, learn to identify grade-level academic language, analyze its functions, connect it to grade-level standards, and incorporate it into assessments.
Make every student fluent in the language of learning. The Common Core and ELD standards provide pathways to academic success through academic language.

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.
Given the prevalence of student diversity, schools are struggling to find ways to help with the implementation of CCSS. With the wide range of student learning styles, socioeconomic backgrounds and life experiences, one key to meeting this challenge is the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Originally developed to address the instructional needs of students with disabilities, UDL is now being embraced as an answer to creating learning environments where all students, regardless of their individual differences, can meet the CCSS. Designed for classroom teachers, this guide provides practical strategies and best practices for utilizing UDL as a means to help students successfully access and achieve the CCSS.
Offers advice, tools, and strategies to build struggling learners' language skills.
