K-12, English Language Arts Common Core Progression Charts:
I wish I could say these were my idea, but I can’t. At the Ohio ASCD conference last week, one of the presenters had a handout showing one of the anchors for ELA and the growth progression of the standards from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Someone in the audience asked if it was available for all of the anchors, and the speaker said no.
I thought this format would be PERFECT for districts currently working on vertical alignment with the new standards, so I decided to make them! Think about the professional development conversations that can happen when you can sit down a group of teachers spanning all grades in a subject area and let them look at how they fit in to the grand scheme of the content area. I was so bold as to pass on my creations to the Ohio Department of Education because, I thought, why should everyone spend time reinventing the wheel when I have already done so.
So, here they are. Enjoy the work. Really, it was a matter of intense copying and pasting, but it took about a week to complete. Feel free to print, copy, reformat, whatever. Maybe someday I’ll make some money off the work I do 🙂
