Yesterday, I gave a presentation on resources for reaching the six educational shifts in literacy in the Common Core. Just as the word "shift" implies, these are changes from what we were doing before with the old (technically current) New York State standards, to what we must do now as the nation moves forward with the Common Core. I'm posting the presentation below. I hope educators everywhere will find it useful. For writers, I think it will be helpful to know what teachers, librarians and administrators need now in reading materials for their students. Enjoy!
Happy reading and writing,
