The purpose of The Apple Shouldn’t Fall Far From Common Core: Teaching Techniques to Include All students is to offer teacher candidates, teachers, teacher educators, administrators, and other education professionals evidence based interventions to use when developing and implementing common core state standards or adopted state standards to children considered at-risk, English Language Learners, and students having disabilities.
Certain evidence based interventions are offered in this book with the hope that readers will utilize the chapter author(s)' experiences and knowledge to inform their own practices. The evidence-based interventions selected for this book are considered common across the different accreditation bodies and critical for common core implementation. Other evidence based interventions have been selected for this book because they are important to the professional discourse and present additions to the more mainstream teaching, such as differentiation of instruction, universal design of instruction, and adaptions to the lessons, such as accommodations are presented.
Overall, this is a worthwhile resource for educators looking to implement CCSSM with all students.
