What is the explicit instructional strategy that supports the higher-level skills students need to meet the demands of the Common Core Standards? Here’s a book that answers that question and provides you with the vision needed to help students perform cognitive behaviors necessary for college or career-readiness. Learn how to enable all students to independently select and apply the skills needed for solving problems, reading deeply, responding to higher levels of text complexity, and communicating well-developed ideas. To help you apply the strategies, the book provides models of scripted lessons, examples of ways to help students apply new skills, and scaffolded activities that integrate content and process.
