The Common Core Companion: The Standards Decoded, by Jim Burke, provides schools, districts, and departments with a common language or set of reference points for effective school-wide implementation of the Common Core State Standards. The book-- available in middle and high school editions-- clarifies what each standard says, what each means, and how to put the standards into practice across English language arts, social studies, science, and technical subjects.

The middle school edition presents grades 6-8 standards side by side, with key distinctions highlighted so teachers know what they must teach from grade to grade. The high school edition identifies grades 9-10 standards, and compares them with grade 11-12 standards, highlighting key distinctions so teachers know to teach from grade to grade. Both editions present the following:

    • All the different content-area versions of each standard arranged on one page to facilitate easy reference and school-wide collaboration
    • Explanations of each standard on a corresponding page, written in accessible language, along with prompts and questions to help students learn and apply each standard
    • Essential content to cover and lesson ideas for modeling the literacy skills behind the standards
    • Instructional techniques for each standard based on Jim’s extensive teaching experience and current research on effective instruction
    • Complete glossary for each standard and adaptations for ELL students

This essential resource is an one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful reading and writing curricula.
