Close Readings and the Common Core

Did you know there are thirty-two national standards in literacy? How closely have you read the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Language Arts? Over the last eight months, Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris dedicated hours to closely reading the CCSS for Language Arts and have shared their reflections through daily blog posts at No matter where you are in your own journey with the CCSS, let Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris be the expert guides to assist you in deepening your understanding of the standards and their implications. This webinar was sponsored by the State of Wisconsin Chapter of PDK. Visit for more information about the chapter and future webinar offerings.
