The Getting Ready for the Common Core Handbook Series is a set of five handbooks that takes readers through a systemic approach to implement and sustain the Common Core State Standards. The series effectively turns the reader's attention from the 'what' to the 'how'—it addresses how the CCSS should influence leadership, teaching, and learning. Each handbook in the Getting Ready for the Common Core series focuses on a unifying theme to provide leaders and educators with the rationale and tools for navigating the terrain of implementing the Common Core. The first handbook anchors the reader with an understanding of the issues presented from a historical perspective, offers advice to consider in moving forward, and provides explicit step-by-step strategies to follow to successfully ramp up the best of standards-based instructional practices at all levels of the organization. The second handbook provides guidance and specific strategies for navigating the English language arts CCSS, while the third handbook provides explicit suggestions for navigating the mathematics CCSS. The fourth handbook in the series focuses on using formative assessment processes and the Common Core, as well as strategies for aligning Professional Learning Communities and Data Teams practices as continuous improvement structures ensuring sustainability. The fifth handbook provides step-by-step guidelines, multiple examples, and instructional strategies to help struggling learners experience success.
This handbook is the first in the Getting Ready for the Common Core Handbook Series. It provides the roadmap that educators and leaders need to begin implementation of the Common Core. The authors ask readers to question their readiness and create a plan to support the implementation of the standards. The authors also provide historical background on how the standards evolved, why the increased rigor is critical for students, and how all learners can be supported using the Common Core State Standards.
