"Common Core for the Not-So-Common Learner provides a masterfully blend of instructional practices with a deep understanding of the CCSS, and presents them in a way that makes sense to educators on the front lines of implementation. In Beyond Core Expectations, Dove, Honigsfeld, and Cohan work to the next level by presenting a coherent framework for schoolwide instructional inclusiveness. This book is an essential guide for educators with a vision for true college and career readiness for ALL students, driven by sound curriculum, instruction and assessment practices."
