The Common Core Learning Standards for ELA identify 6 shifts in learning for students. These shifts are supported in the classroom and can also be supported at home by working with your child in the following areas:
1. Read as much non-fiction as fiction.
2. Learn about the world by reading.
3. Read more challenging material closely.
4. Discuss reading using evidence.
5. Write non-fiction using evidence.
6. Increase academic vocabulary.
