Additional Information

Common Core Literacy for ELA, History/Social Studies, and the Humanities

In this age of the Common Core State Standards, all content area teachers must integrate literacy standards into their curriculum. If you're like most content area educators, you're feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of applying the new standards, or you might just need a little extra help.

In this hands-on resource, Common Core literacy expert Katherine McKnight offers secondary teachers a clear understanding of what literacy looks like in English Language Arts (ELA), social studies, and other humanities-related subjects. She gives educators proven teaching techniques that will help them to develop literacy skills in their students. The book offers a wealth of practical strategies and activities that content area teachers can integrate seamlessly. Included are

  • A selection of activities that support literacy skills and build content knowledge
  • Ideas for implementing the literacy requirements of the Common Core in specific content areas
  • An easy-to-use Difficulty Dial that indicates the complexity of each activity
  • Robust student samples that bring the activities to life across a variety of grade levels
