The models look very nice, but I was wondering how these could be adapted to meet the rigors and level of depth required by the new common core standards that most states are now using? I was also curious how you differentiated across a whole group setting using the books. Do you change the materials and rubric requirements? The integration of art and reading instruction is commendable, but our final products must also meet high expectations. Generic question stems, coloring in maps, and write words down on dog bones might have worked some places last year, but not so much anymore.
