What vs. How

Don't know if this is helpful, but it seems to me the CCSS don't really tell you HOW to teach just WHAT to make sure your students are learning. Are you doing guided reading along with your reading workshop? If so, I don't see why you can't incorporate the CCSS into a reader's workshop with mini lessons and reading groups that cover the reading skills in CCSS.

Remember that reading workshop is not all about teaching "making connections" but it's more about helping readers find ways to understand text better. Making connections is wonderful to teach to kids that don't intuitively make connections on their own, but making connections is only a step toward better comprehension, it isn't the goal in and of itself.
