Basal Series; good stories...how to incorporate/assess??
Our district adopted Treasures a few years ago. There are many quality stories (non fiction Time for Kids, etc.) that I want to use. It seems like the new CCSS can be interpreted into many of them. How do feel basal series fit? Isn't it all about how you "question" and interact with the text? I don't want to reinvent the wheel the first year and want to use the resources given to us. I was hoping to see some of the publishers of these series come out with assessments that are aligned with CCSS (using the same stories) but have not seen that yet.
