Discover the Common Core State standards for English language arts, and gain confidence in applying them to the K-5 classroom.  In this course you will explore the basic elements of the standards---strands, anchor standards, and grade articulations---and you will see how they relate to each other.  You will be empowered to speak knowledgeably with parents, peers, and the community.

You will explore the four English language strands---reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and language.  You will examine how teaching literature gives students the opportunity to explore language, and consider the impact of a school-wide literacy plan.  You will look at the roles of technology, homework, curricula, and assessments in the classroom.  You will be inspired by loads of easy-to-use, practical examples of Common Core State Standards-aligned lessons that you can use with your own students.
