PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for a creative technique to model Common Core expectations? Here it is! Completely FREE!

This bundle is a Common Core Workshop using Stephen Prothero's "Introduction" from his text "The American Bible." Our students used an excerpt, but the idea worked very well to introduce students to the power of words and the concept of Americanism WHILE exposing them to CC expectations.

This lesson was designed for a 90-minute block and took three days to complete the learning and have students produce a draft of the writing assignment. This product works through thoroughly modeling the process of close reading, text-dependent questions, and the dreaded writing task.

This bundle is available for free because I cannnot include the excerpt of the text and since it is not in the text you would have to buy it on your own anyway.

At Kirk's Corner it is our goal to produce high-quality products for use in the classroom. Because we all know canned programming does not work, you may want to make some changes to this product before implementing it in your classroom.

As with all products, we welcome your specific feedback in order to produce the best products for the best instructional delivery and student achievement.

Note: The official text for this course is Prentice Hall's Literature: The American Experience (Common Core Edition).

UPDATE: 8/24
I found someone posted the Introduction online for free. I have now included a link to that document in the product bundle.
