Reading Through the Common Core was created in response to the Common Core Learning Standards which requires all students to be college and career ready in the following areas: Reading for Literature, Reading for Informational Texts, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language. The specific concentrations of this curriculum guide are the importance of literacy and developing reading skills. Teacher representatives from every grade level in the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, 7 – 12, collaborated to determine the most widely read major works for each grade level, and sought to find high quality ancillary resources and to develop lesson plans that highlighted reading strategies for all teachers.
