But how do you translate the new standards into practice? Enter the Core Six: six research-based, classroom-proven strategies that will help you and your students respond to the demands of the Common Core. Thanks to more than 40 years of research and hands-on classroom testing, the authors know the best strategies to increase student engagement and achievement and prepare students for college and career. Best of all, these strategies can be used across all grade levels and subject areas. The Core Six include 1. Reading for Meaning. 2. Compare & Contrast. 3. Inductive Learning. 4.
