Nonfiction and Literature Book Lists and Expert Videos Among the Additions to the Scholastic Common Core Website
NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Scholastic, the global children's publishing, education and media company, today announced the upgrade and redesign of its popular Common Core State Standards website for teachers, school leaders and parents, called "Common Sense for Common Core." The enhanced site offers expert videos focusing on Common Core themes, an easy-to-use product finder tool, grade-leveled book lists for nonfiction and literature, and access to expert advice to help teachers and administrators implement the Common Core at school and parents encourage learning at home.
As part of the site redesign, Scholastic has brought together a number of authors and teachers to validate the resources that will best serve users' needs. The site also provides access for educators and parents to some of the leading experts on Common Core instruction and leadership – from Dr. Ruth Culham, President of The Culham Writing Company, to Dr. David Dockterman, Harvard Graduate School of Education and Chief Architect of Learning Sciences at Scholastic, to Dr. Elfrieda Hiebert, President and CEO of TextProject, Inc.
"By collaborating with top experts and authors, we are able to provide clarity about the standards and guide parents and teachers to books and other resources to ensure that all children are ready to meet the Common Core requirements," said Suzanne McCabe, Editor-at-Large. "Throughout the year we will add relevant resources and professional development supports to help educators implement the standards effectively, as well as more book lists and resources to help parents support their children's continued learning at home."
