Literacy―it’s not just for English teachers anymore!

The new Common Core English Language Arts Standards aren’t just for English teachers. Fluent reading and writing are critically important to the study of history/social studies, science, and technical subjects, too. In this practical resource, you’ll use teacher-tested, CCSS-based lessons as models―and follow the principles of the Backward Design approach to curriculum development to set and meet your goals. Each lesson template includes

  • The teaching strategies you’ll utilize
  • Ways to incorporate technology and media
  • Variations for differentiation and interdisciplinary connections
  • Links to the work of major educational theorists

About the Author:

Consulting Description 


Vicky Giouroukakis, PhD, (née Vasiliki Menexas), is an Associate Professor in the Division of Education at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, New York. She teaches graduate courses to prospective and practicing secondary English teachers and English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers. Prior to her tenure at Molloy, Vicky taught English at a public high school in Queens, New York, and ESL to adolescents and adults. She also taught at Manhattanville College and Queens College, CUNY. Her research interests include adolescent literacy, standards and assessment, teacher education, and cultural and linguistic diversity. Her work has been featured in books and scholarly journals, and she frequently presents at regional, national, and international conferences. In 2010, Vicky was the recipient of the Educator of Excellence Award by the New York State English Council and has been serving on the Council’s Executive Board since then. She has been interested in standards and assessment and how they affect teaching and learning ever since she began teaching. Moreover, her dissertation work was on the impact of state assessments in English on instructional practice. Vicky received a master’s degree in English Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. She also received a master’s degree in TESOL and a doctorate in Reading/Writing/Literacy from the University of Pennsylvania. Vicky resides in New York with her supportive husband and three loving children.

Review:

“This hands-on, research-based guide presents classroom-tested lessons and ideas for modifying existing lessons to meet the challenges of the CCSS. The authors also emphasize 21st century learning skills such as collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity, with technology and life and career skills components. Getting to the Core clearly breaks down key tenets of the CCSS, deftly addressing both timely topics (cyberbullying, social justice, and graphic novels), as well as more traditional secondary English experiences (Macbeth, Of Mice and Men, the Gettysburg Address, and The House on Mango Street). This melding cements the important place this book deserves on the shelf of any current or aspiring English educator.” (Lawrence Butti, English Instructional Leader 2011-11-28)
