  3. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms: Essential Practices for Developing Academic Language and Disciplinary Literacy

    The Common Core State Standards require students to do more with knowledge and language than ever before.

Yet in order to take on these new and exciting roles, many students need daily teaching with an extra emphasis on accelerating their academic communication skills. Common Core Standards in Diverse Classrooms is a concise guide for helping us improve our practices to strengthen two vital pillars that support student learning: academic language and disciplinary literacy.

Designed to supplement your existing practice, it contains over 110 proficiency scales that will bring new rigour and focus to your teaching and assessment practice, as well as aid in creating unique proficiency scales for the Australian Curriculum.

    Conquering the Crowded Curriculum encourages teachers to weave an authentic teaching tapestry where content knowledge, strategies and understanding are drawn from one subject discipline and used to enrich and apply to others.

It discusses each component and identifies its role in contributing to the potential for student success. Suggested inquiry projects illustrate how teachers can skilfully integrate curriculum areas, encourage students to see different perspectives, think critically and imaginatively about ideas, work with new material in various contexts and represent their new knowledge in precise and profound ways.
