Engaging the Adolescent Learner

The First 20 Days: Common Core Edition

Douglas Fisher & Nancy Frey


The first 20 days of a new school year are critical in establishing routines, procedures, and expectations. Fisher and Frey help you address the demands of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts by providing a 20-day calendar of instructional activities to engage your students during this important time. The activities align with the four domains of the CCSS and are adaptable to your area of discipline.
