Hacking the Common Core

I'm so pleased to announce that Hacking the Common Core is Now Available on Amazon.com in both print and eBook formats!

From the publisher:

There Is Nothing Common About This Common Core Book
It's finally here: a book that unravels the Common Core State Standards, exposes the myths, and shows educators and parents exactly how to bring back the fun to teaching and learning--even in a standardized world.
In Hacking the Common Core, longtime teacher and CCSS specialist Michael Fisher reveals 10 amazing hacks for teaching the Core in all subjects.
The Common Core Is Not Evil, but. . .
Fisher explains how the CCSS are not evil, while demonstrating their limitations, particularly when teachers trust a vendor product over their own professionalism. Getting to the CORE of contemporary instructional practice and undoing the mass hysteria following the Common Core implementationare both the heart of this book.
What All Education Stakeholders Will Learn
  • How to bring literature back to the classroom
  • The truth about close reading
  • What the instructional shifts really mean for instructional design
  • Why we must ditch “Rigor” in favor of “Vigor”
  • How to fix vocabulary with "Morecabulary"
  • How to upgrade the verb
  • The problem with the one-size-fits-all mentality
  • Why parents need to understand the Common Core
Change How You Teach
Hacking the Common Core is the book that every teacher who feels handcuffed by standards and testing has been waiting for. It's time to take back your class, engage all learners, and be amazing for your students. 
The Hack Learning Formula
The Hack Learning Series formula is perfect for Hacking the Common Core. Forget everything you've heard about standardization and the Core. Fisher throws out or upgrades most information and strategies, and in classic Hack Learning style, he gives you:
The Problem (Common Core issues that need a Hacker's mentality)
The Hack (ridiculously easy solutions that you've likely never considered)
What You Can Do Tomorrow (no waiting necessary; you can make writing immediately)
