What to Teach - ELA/Literacy

 

Find resources for considering what to teach in K-12 ELA and 6-12 Content Area Literacy.  Sections include unpacked Literacy Standards shared by the MS Science Dept., the CCLS, and CCSS Appendices; websites offering examples of CCLS aligned units, lessons, and student work; and generously shared grade level ELA standards unpacked into "I can" statements.

These files include state learning standards, priority learning documents, and other sources to support decisions about what to teach.
