Are you confused or overwhelmed by the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts? You\'re not alone. I have taken some time to annotate the Common Core standards for ELA Grade 8 in order to help you feel, well...not so overwhelmed, or lost, or alone! I have tried to break some of the more vague standards into bite-sized chunks to help you understand them better--and thus, be able to implement them better. Some of the standards were already pretty self-explanatory so I left those alone, but wherever you see the arrow is where I have tried to explain or articulate the expectation(s) of the standard. If you find something particularly confusing, please message me and I will be happy to explain or articulate better, or add an explanation where there was none. Hope it helps...please be sure to leave feedback--I would love to hear your thoughts!
