Reading, Thinking, and Writing About History: Teaching Argument Writing to Diverse Learners in the Common Core Classroom, Grades 6-12, a new book by Chauncey Monte-Sano, Susan De La Paz of the University of Maryland and Mark Felton of San Jose State University, is now being published by Teachers College Press of Columbia University.

Addressing a need for guidelines, lesson plans, assessments and other materials for teachers that are lacking in Common Core curricula in history, the book is described as a practical guide that “presents six research-tested historical investigations along with all corresponding teaching materials and tools that have improved the historical thinking and argumentative writing of academically diverse students.”
