The Common Core State Standards offer a shared language that ensures consistency and accountability, while also giving you the flexibility to design a curriculum that's right for your students. Of course, knowing what you need to teach doesn't tell you how to teach it--and that's where curriculum integration expert Susan M. Drake comes in. In this new edition of her classic text, Drake applies the essential principles of standards-based curriculum, instruction, and assessment to today's unique challenges. Focusing on multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary approaches, she provides guidance on: unpacking the Common Core State Standards; planning assessment task; designing instructional strategies; developing daily activities; helping students connect essential questions to enduring understandings. Included are new examples of exemplary programs, discussion questions, a sample completed interdisciplinary curriculum, and activity suggestions for building your own standards-based integrated curriculum. This proven resource is the road map teachers and curriculum developers need to navigate the unfamiliar territory of the CCSS and to develop a curriculum that helps their students thrive. --Publisher description.
