    So, if you're CommonCoring, you know that reading and writing are supposed to be happening in all classrooms. All subject areas have their own literacy standards now.

    My P asked me in the fall to show (presentation) all staff where to find their standards and to show them some resources that have deconstructed those standards.

    Let's just say that our transition to Common Core has been a bumpy one.

    My P has asked me again to present to staff info on literacy in their classrooms. We are talking more in detail of expectations tomorrow, but until then ...

    Share with me your favorite literacy resources for classrooms OTHER than ELA?

    I don't have any resources since we're not transitioning until next year, but we've been talking about subscribing to Discover or Scientific American to get science articles at an appropriately high reading level. We're also talking about requiring formal lab reports in all science classes.

    The HS where I did my student teaching used the Thinkquiry Toolkit. I'm continuing to use it at my new job. It has tons of literacy strategies with examples for all subjects and age levels, as well as instructions on implementing them.

    Hi @ku_alum. Created an account here just to answer you. :)

    You might want to look at how useful this site would be for those who need to learn using the common core standards using videos. opened dot io (can't post links yet)

    It's free and in private beta for now. Let me know if you need an invite.
