The Game Plan is the first professional book that gives secondary administrators, literacy coaches, and other instructional leaders a step-by-step blueprint for implementing the Common Core Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies, Science, and the Technical Subjects and other college and career readiness standards. The book provides principals, district supervisors, instructional coaches, and other leaders with a coherent, realistic plan to build a school-wide culture of literacy instruction, data use, and PLC-based cycles of reflection, planning, and action. This multi-year plan is built on a continuous cycle of improvement philosophy and is modular in nature, allowing leaders to rearrange, substitute, and modify the plan to meet the needs of any secondary school.
Organized in two parts, the first section of The Game Plan lays out a semester-by-semester flexible configuration for introducing, implementing, and supporting the literacy standards over the course of six full school years; this section also includes detailed guidelines for creating a comprehensive assessment plan to gather, analyze, and act on school data. The second section includes instructional tools and strategies for reading, writing, vocabulary, and other aspects of the literacy standards that teachers in all subject areas can use.

In an era of educational quick fixes that do not work, the authors of The Game Plan offer a sane, research-based, multi-year professional development approach focused on improving literacy across all content areas in a secondary school. It is a must-read, call-to-action guidebook for all principals and instructional coaches who want to create a culture of continuous learning among their teachers and support staff. (Peggy J. Saunders, PhD, professor and director of the MEd program, teacher education department, Weber State University)
The Game Plan is a completely accessible and very well designed guide for school leaders to meaningfully implement literacy instruction across all content areas. The framework is straightforward and flexible. As a former school district professional developer, I found that the challenge was always finding the tool that will "sell" the work with clarity and focused goals that the team can rally around. This is one of those tools. (John Meisner, assistant professor of education at Southern Utah University)
