Common Core in Your Classroom
Practical Strategies for Implementing the Common Core With English Learners
Diane Staehr Fenner & Ayanna Cooper
Staehr Fenner and Cooper specialize in English learner achievement, and here they guide you through the process of helping English learners succeed within the CCSS framework in a way that draws upon EL’s strengths. Specifically, they address teaching academic language across content areas, creating content and language objectives, activating background knowledge, scaffolding informational texts, using writing prompts for different levels of students, and teaching ELs how to write a “just right” research question.
