Center on Standards and Assessments Implementation
This resource is part of a series produced by the Center for Standards and Assessment Implementation (CSAI) to assist educators as they use College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS) to plan instruction for diverse learners. Although the processes described in this resource use the Common Core State Standards (CCSS; National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, Council of Chief State School Officers, 2010) as an example of CCRS, this resource is applicable to all states' CCRS. This resource addresses two essential steps in the process of planning English language arts instruction from CCRS: (1) organizing the standards into a year-at-a-glance template as a means to gain deep understanding of the English language arts and literacy expectations within strands of standards, as well as the connections between and among the strands; and (2) creating a yearlong map of standards in preparation for instructional planning. As teachers work to complete the three templates in this resource, they identify important relationships between standards, determine how to prioritize standards, and organize the standards as a meaningful progression of learning expectations. With a yearlong plan that represents a progression of learning expectations, teachers will be well prepared to structure classroom instruction and assessment to meet their students' learning needs. The authors drew on their understanding of theory and research in a variety of areas to create these tools and processes. The following appendices are included: (1) Exemplars; and (2) Tools and Templates. Additional resources, references, and background materials are included.
