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.

  • 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.

  • 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 - Several word lists appear on this page that are helpful when planning for instruction.

  • Model Curriculum - These are ODE documents with strategies, resources, content elaborations, and enduring understandings presented.

  • Comparative Analysis Documents - ODE has created these documents that show areas that are no longer a focus at specific grade levels and what has taken the place of that content.

  • PARCC is Ohio's chosen assessment company.  They have started putting out some information about test creation and content frameworks.  The page above contains some PDF files and other information from PARCC's website.

  • PARCC Assessment Item & Tasks Protypes

  • Slideshows for Standards Roll Out Meetings appear by following the link in the menu bar above.

  • Videos: Various entities have created some great videos for explaining differient aspects of the Common Core Standards.
