Welcome to the Common Core Reading: Foundational Skills course from Green Light Professional Development!

In this course, we’ll highlight how the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) treat reading foundational skills across and within strands. We’ll also learn how to develop foundational skills and content literacy simultaneously at Grades K–5. The course ends with a hands-on workshop that gives you time to develop a reading unit around a topic or issue to build content knowledge.

Let’s begin with a quick introduction on foundational skills and their place in CCSS.
