**As many Middle School Teachers, like myself, teach multiple sections of multiple grade levels, I have bundled my ELA CCSS Planning Template and Checklist for 6th, 7th and 8th grades into one file. The seperate grade level CCSS Checklists are also available, but if more than one grade level is needed for whole class instruction or differentiation, you can purchase all three right here for a discounted price.
In order to be sure that we, as effective teachers, are teaching to the Common Core State Standards, creating measurable objectives and providing ample time for both formative and summative assessments, careful planning is a necessity for us all. In many districts it is already a given that plans or quarterly blueprints of some kind are not only shared with departments and/or administration, but with parents as well.
In this updated version of my planning template – that is saved in Word so that you can print and fill-in by hand, OR alter as needed and update electronically – I have also included CCSS checklists that can be attached to your plans. Now every lesson you create can be efficiently aligned to ELA standards just by checking the applicable boxes. Make as many copies of the checklists that you need, date them and check off the standards that your instruction will address that day, and then attach to your plans and place in your teacher-binder. You can also note the types of assessment you’ll be using for each standard by circling F (formative) or S (summative) and giving details in the boxes provided in the checklist or the second page of the planning template – whichever better suits your daily needs.
