The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are designed to make K-12 students college and career ready in mathematics, language arts, history and social studies, science, and technical subjects. The goal has been set. The challenge now lies in how teachers will address these standards in the classroom. Divided into seven key student proficiencies, How to Teach Thinking Skills Within the Common Core is a practical guide that prepares teachers to teach to the CCSS, across all grade levels and content areas. Authors James A. Bellanca, Robin J. Fogarty, and Brian M. Pete show teachers and educational leaders how to make simple adjustments to classroom instruction in order to enhance students' critical thinking skills and prepare them for college and the workforce.
