Nevada English Language Arts Content Standards for Kindergarten and Grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 12 [and] Performance Level Descriptors.
Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.
The "Nevada English Language Arts Standards" are intended to give Nevada children the tools and experiences that will help them not only to succeed in school but also to become lifelong and adept readers, writers, listeners, and speakers. The scope of English language arts study extends far beyond the English language arts classroom. Students apply the skills learned there in every content area. Many of the standards set out for younger students are on the surface similar to those written for high school students--what changes between the sets of expectations is the developmental abilities of students to, for example, write more sophisticated compositions or read more complex texts. This document contains supplemental information not included in previous editions. First, suggested interdisciplinary links have been noted at the bottom of each box, when applicable, for Grades 2, 3, 5, 8, and 12. Second, for the Benchmark Grades of 2, 3, 5, 8, and 12, each of the benchmark standards were prioritized based on a 3-part framework which included Enduring Knowledge, Important Knowledge, and Knowledge Worth Being Familiar With. In addition, for each of the benchmark standards in Grades 3, 5, 8, and 12, a determination was made as to whether the standard would be assessed locally by school district personnel or through a state assessment. The document provides keys to the coding used throughout regarding interdisciplinary links by subject area, prioritization framework, and assessment level. It is divided into: Introduction; Content Standards and Indicators of Progress, Kindergarten through Grade 4; Content Standards and Indicators of Progress, Grades 5 through 12; and Glossary. Appended are performance level descriptors detailing: Exceeds Standard; Meets Standard; Approaches Standard; or Below Standard.(NKA)
