Drawing from the research on which classroom strategies are your "best bets" for improving student achievement, the authors provide what you need to reinforce the Common Core in your lessons, including: a rationale for using each strategy to address the goals of the common core; research that supports the use of each strategy; steps for implementing each strategy in the classroom; sample lessons in multiple grade levels and subjects; and planning considerations to make certain your use of the strategy helps students become better at reading, understanding, using, and communicating rigorous texts. This practical book's teaching recommendations and sample lessons draw on six tips for inspired instruction that ensure your lessons capture students' interest, deepen their understanding, and extend their thinking about required course content. --Publisher description.
