||A Teacher's Guide to Using the Common Core State Standards With Gifted and Advanced Learners in the English/Language Arts
||Hughes-Lynch, C., Kettler, T., Shaunessy-Dedrick, E. & VanTassel-Baska, J.
||Written by authors Claire E. Hughes-Lynch, Todd Kettler Ph.D., Elizabeth Shaunessy-Dedrick Ph.D., Joyce VanTassel-Baska Ed.D., this book provides teachers and administrators a blueprint for differentiating the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts for gifted and advanced students through the use of acceleration, depth, complexity, and creativity within and across grade levels. It illustrates the differences between learning experiences for typical and advanced students based on the same standard and provides an array of examples across five of the information text and literary text standards while integrating the other aspects of language arts teaching and learning. The book highlights implementation features, such as classroom management and assessment of student work, that allow teachers to make data-based decisions about instruction for particular students. It also offers guidance to teachers on reading selections for advanced learners at all grade levels.
