Product Description

Linking CCSS to Your Curriculum: Lessons for Mastering Standards (Grade 6 Teacher’s Edition) offers a customizable, flexible "how to" for integrating lessons on the CCSS skills into any school’s existing curriculum. 

Designed to work with your Middle School curriculum, Linking CCSS to Your Curriculum is comprised of seventeen lessons for mastering the skills in the standards; each one specifically developed to provide numerous examples of the target standard embedded within the 4-paragraph text. Text has been specifically written to best address the skills in the standard. Students build their knowledge of the standard by citing textual evidence and recording responses in the graphic organizer included. Students then apply and practice the concepts learned in the lessons as they read their existing classroom text. The lessons may be taught in any order for ease of integration into your Middle School curriculum.

Product Includes: 

  • A series of 17 lessons for mastering standards
    • 9 lessons on informational text
    • 8 lessons on literary text
  • Starter activity where teacher defines the skill either through a text description or a discussion
  • 4-paragraph text written for each lesson; designed to be short, making it possible to do both a “close reading” of the text and a deep analysis together in one class period
  • Topics relate to themes studied in Middle School
  • Text specifically written to promote discussion about the skill in each standard
  • Graphic organizer for each of the 17 lessons
  • Independent student activities
  • Includes everything needed to teach the lessons, including access to downloadable ancillary materials and an interactive whiteboard application. 

How it works: 

  • Transportability of our graphic organizer from our text to YOUR class text is key! Through our lessons, students learn the vital core skills needed to apply/transport their knowledge to materials in the curriculum. 
  • Educators first provide instruction on the standard using the lesson and our carefully designed text. Students build their knowledge of the standard by learning to do a “close” reading, citing textual evidence and recording responses in the graphic organizer.
  • Students then apply and practice the concept learned in the mastery lesson as they read their existing classroom text and use our graphic organizers.

Not just aligned with the standards, it teaches the skills of the standards! Written after the final release of the Common Core State Standards, Linking CCSS to Your Curriculum is a vital tool for integrating the Common Core State Standards into your Middle School curriculum.
