Method to the Madness: A Common Core Guide to Creating Critical Thinkers through the Study of Literature

Publisher: Rowman and Littlefield

Publication Date: March 2016

ISBN: 978-1-4758-2538-1

This book is ideal for the thousands of teachers who entered the profession in the last ten years and taught prescribed curriculum geared toward end of year bubble testing. Its intent is to empower districts and their teachers to create their own (free!) curriculum that will exceed the expectations of Common Core assessments, as well as create life-long learners that are college and career ready. By employing inquiry based units of study that insist on the use of iconic literature at the center, students will be more prepared for what awaits them with Common Core exams.
