This 8th grade ELA lesson plan features a drop down menu with the standards already written for you. Just select the standard(s) under the objectives heading, and you're done. This template also has sections to document: materials, higher-order thinking questions, small-group differentiation, homework, early finisher work, source of data the lesson is driven by, accommodations, and the lesson activity sequence. Switching to this lesson plan will you save you the time and effort of looking up the CCSS. A nice side-effect is that will begin to notice if you are teaching all the standards by how often you select it from the drop-down menu.
