FREE WORKSHOP: “Our Students Are Struggling: Now What?”

LITERACY AND THE COMMON COREI will present “Our Students Are Struggling: Now What?at the Eatontown Barnes & Noble in the Monmouth Mall on Tuesday, April 14, from 6:00-7:30pm. There is no charge, and participants will earn professional development hours. To sign up, please click here.

Many students are not on grade-level when it comes to literacy. This interactive session demonstrates how to use data, the Common Core Standards, PARCC practice test items, and other helpful resources to bridge these gaps.   Participants will walk away with a systematic approach that they can implement immediately.

OBJECTIVES: We will answer the following key questions in order to strengthen instruction and improve student achievement:

  1. What data do you have? What should you do if the data is not aligned with the CCS?
  2. Once you have CCS proficiency data, what should you do?
  3. How and why should we unpack the CCS?
  4. Once we’ve unpacked the CCS, what should we do?
  5. What will this process probably cause us to do?

This workshop is based upon my latest book, Literacy and the Common Core: Recipes for Action. Copies of that and my first book, The Literacy Cookbook: A Practical Guide to Effective Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening Instruction, will be available for sale that evening.

If you are unable to attend this workshop and would like to see it at your school, please feel free to contact me at
