Resources for the Common Core English Language Arts Standards

We are in a very transitional time with revised standards in the state of Ohio.  We (the State of Ohio) have adopted the common core standards as our English Language Arts Standards.  This page is intended to provide resources and links to other pages where you will find information about the common core standards for English Language Arts.  I have created some of these resources, others have been created by various other entities.

If you have questions about information provided on this site, please email me.


The Standards and Appendices (A-C) can be found on the Core Standards Website.
The Common Core website has unit maps for all grade levels (K-12).  This website is not intended to be your entire curriculum, it is a resource for you to find ideas for teaching the new common core standards.
Learning Targets - you will find a .pdf document for each grade level.  These are the common core standards, written into "kid-friendly" language as I Can Statements.
Crosswalk Documents - these documents were originally created by the ODE, but I have made some updates and changes to them.
Graphics - you will find a standard to strand comparison and an overall graphic of the organizational structure of the common core ELA standards.
Learning Progressions - these documents are just a different way of looking at the standards, you can see the same standard for K-12 on one page.
Glossary - I created this document by reading through the standards and pulling out words I thought might need to be defined.  I used various resources for compiling definitions and examples.













Model Curriculum - These are ODE documents.  They are in draft form right now, but the final form is coming soon.
