Core Guides

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts place increased levels of emphasis on nonfiction content, more complex text, and literacy skill building across all subjects. To help teachers transition to the instructional shifts required by the new standards, TLI is pleased to offer CORE GUIDES. This collection offers eight (four literature/four informational) Model Literacy Units for Grades 3 – 12. Each unit is designed to facilitate full implementation of the CCSS in the classroom.
