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 🙂

  1. Wow – this is pretty awesome – you rock. I have been looking for something like this as I am about to start a week long workshop in the development of a ELA unit using writing standards 1. Thank you for sharing this!


  2. Thank you VERY much for this. Exactly what I went searching for. Only one document left to do for my collection: A listing of all the Standards separated by grade levels. Suppose it is time for me to do some intense copying and pasting.


  3. Thank you so much. At our school in Puerto Rico, they just sprung them on us from one day to the next, saying that nothing would truly change. Thank you for proving them wrong.
