The Most Challenging Instructional Shifts in the CCSS for English/Language Arts
This event took place on May 1, 2014, 2 to 3 p.m. ET.

Content provided by:

The Common Core State Standards emphasize several challenging shifts that require students to think differently, teachers to change instructional strategies, and administrators to reconsider the support needed in order to enable success. In this webinar, we will discuss four of the most challenging shifts, including:

• Emphasis on Academic Vocabulary
• Complex Text
• Close Reading
• Greater Emphasis on Informational Text

Participants will learn what these shifts really mean; how the various ELA standards connect to support them; and practical applications for addressing the shifts in the classroom.
