I use this checklist to keep track of the Common Core standards for ELA Informational Text in 8th grade that I cover throughout the year. I use these checklists by unit, by semester, and by overall year. I print as many as needed and jot down the activities I use for each standard. My principal loves these! :-)
The documents within the zip file are all in pdf format.
Please also see my checklist for ELA Literature for Grade 8.
All of the items I share on TPT are ones I actually use in my middle school classroom. Most have been revised multiple times based on "test runs" with my students. I work hard to make information accessible to students in a fun and simple way while still challenging students to meet and exceed their abilities. Most of my assignments can be used with all ability levels; differentiation comes in my expectations of what individual students or groups can achieve. Many of my activities can be used with individual students or cooperative groups.
Thanks for looking at Middle School Reading Room!
