The “Core” of The Core: Using Story Grammar Marker® and Other MindWing Concepts Tools To Support Students in Meeting Grade-Level Common Core State Standards
“At the core of the Core is really that child sitting in a classroom at Memorial School on Main Street, Anywhere, USA. We can never forget that within the clamor for more intensive instruction within and across academic disciplines and grade levels, is the small voice of a child…waiting to be heard.” Maryellen Rooney Moreau, June 14, 2012
This book aligns the Common Core State Standards with MindWing’s methodology. It provides effective, evidence-based interventions to help students who are “at-risk” and those with identified learning difficulties to develop the Communicative Competence necessary to meet grade level standards and be prepared for college and/or career.
The “Core” of the Core includes...
the SGM® and ThemeMaker® approach for supporting the CCSS (for reading, writing, speaking & listening)
“make and take” activities aligned to specific CCSS to be used as interventions in therapy, at Centers and/or for whole class instruction
Concrete lessons using literature and information text that combine narrative and expository text structures
