Are you striving to align your writing instruction with the Common Core Writing standards? Have you noticed that the Writing standards are linked with Language Standards 1-3? Are you familiar with collective and abstract nouns? Indefinite singular and plural pronouns? What about the difference between compound and complex sentences? Common Core Language Terms Primary is just what you need. Developed by Dr. Colleen Shea Stump, Literacy Specialist by day and adjunct faculty member by night and summer, and piloted by practitioners just like you, this reference guide provides definitions and lists of words for each of these terms as well as examples for the different types of sentences required under the Common Core. This information will ease your task of integrating this terminology and new skills into your standards-based unit planning. Consider Dr. Stump your quick source for standards-based literacy practices for all students, especially those who are struggling readers/writers or students with learning disabilities.
