Create programs that prepare students for college, careers, and the new and challenging assessments of the Common Core State Standards

Written for all educators but with an emphasis on those at the secondary level, this important resource shows how to develop programs that truly prepare students for both the Common Core assessments and for college and career readiness. Based on multiple research studies conducted by Conley as well as experience he has gained from working with dozens of high schools that succeed with a wide range of students, the book provides specific strategies for teaching the CCSS in ways that improve readiness for college and careers for the full range of students.

  • Draws from research-based models for creating programs for high school students that will ensure readiness for tests and for college and beyond
  • Includes strategies and practices for teachers to help students develop postsecondary preparedness
  • Is the third in a series of books on readiness written by David Conley, including College Knowledge and College and Career Ready

Teachers can use this valuable resource to understand the "big picture" behind the Common Core State Standards, how to teach to them in ways that prepare students for new, challenging assessments being implemented over the next few years and, more importantly, how to help all students be ready for learning beyond high school.
