about this item
The Developing Core Proficiencies program is comprised of a series of four 3-week units that provide direct instruction on a set of literacy proficiencies at the heart of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).Unit I. Reading Closely for Textual Details.Unit II. Making Evidence-Based Claims.Unit III. Researching to Deepen Understanding.Unit IV. Building Evidence-Based Arguments.Each unit develops the proficiency through a progression of activities centered around a variety of complex texts. Supplemental materials like handouts and graphic organizers support students along the way. The instructional sequences, teachers notes, tools, handouts, rubrics, and graphic organizers are all developed to function on their own so teachers can integrate them into instruction based on other texts and topics. This makes the materials adaptable and usable outside of the model units.
