"The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are the first academic standards to be independently adopted by almost every state in the country. The purpose and intent of the Common Core standards for English Language Arts (ELA), as well as Literacy in History/Social Studies and Science education, are the focus of this book. This volume is aimed at educators, administrators, graduate students, university professors, and others who deal with students in grades 3 through 5.
