Strategies to Deepen Content Knowledge (Grades 6-12)

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


Praise for Common Core Literacy for ELA, History/Social

? Laura Garner, Language Arts Coordinator, Berkeley
County (South Carolina) Public Schools

teachers! McKnight shows how every strategy in the book supports
student achievement of the Common Core." ? LeAnn
