"This book has the authors' expertise and experience written all over it. My assistant superintendent has been leading the charge to integrate CCSS into our curriculum and guide our teachers through the curriculum writing process. Many of the ideas in this book are very closely aligned with the work our curriculum writing teams have been doing, and I know our teachers will find both value and validation in it."--Martin J. Hudacs, EdD, Superintendent, Solanco School District, Quarryville, Pennsylvania "Lewis, Walpole, and McKenna draw on their vast knowledge of literacy research and practice, extensive work in middle and high school classrooms, and deep understanding of the CCSS. The authors recognize that perhaps the most fundamental shift brought about by the CCSS is in regard to texts. They help teachers construct text sets and describe content-area strategies for implementation before, during, and after reading and writing assignments. The book not only explains the strategies and how they might support the kind of in-depth understanding of texts that is expected with the Common Core, but also offers extended examples of their use. This engaging read will provide a sense of relief to teachers who feel unsure about or overwhelmed by the CCSS."--Cynthia Shanahan, EdD, College of Education, University of Illinois at Chicago. "As we assemble our libraries of CCSS resources, this book deserves a prominent spot. The authors skillfully explain the rigorous expectations of the CCSS in light of the rich scholarship on adolescent literacy. The book explores a range of highly effective instructional practices to support students as readers, writers, speakers, and thinkers as they engage with complex texts as disciplinary learners. The authors' approach is thoughtful, and their conversational tone is very reader friendly."--Doug Buehl, MS, adolescent literacy specialist, Madison, Wisconsin "This is the only professional development guide that 6-12 te
