Nourishing NonFiction–Releah Lent’s Common Core CPR: What About the Adolescents Who Struggle . . . or Just Don’t Care?

Releah Lent will be a keynote speaker this Saturday, October 25, at our PCTELA conference. Check out her book description from Amazon:

Common Core CPR is needed. Urgently. Because if we continue to insist that all students meet expectations that are well beyond their abilities, these kids will only decline faster. We must cast aside what we know harms students and apply the teaching methods we know work.

Embracing what is best about the standards, Lent and Gilmore explicitly connect ideal outcomes to practical classroom strategies, including how to

  • Consider choice and relevance in every assignment
  • Plan and spot opportunities for success
  • Scaffold students’ comprehension of fiction and nonfiction
  • Model close reading
  • Teach students to use evidence
