Product Description
Welcome to your indispensable language resource! I’ll be very surprised if you don’t use this handbook during every English Language Arts block in your classroom. It’s an essential reference for applying Common Core State Standards any time, anywhere.

I created this CCSS Standards & Guiding Questions Handbook to wrap my head around a lot of information. I put these sheets in a binder with attached tabs for each CCSS. Behind each sheet I filed examples of student work and prompt ideas that students will work on to meet this standard as well as a tracking sheet for my students. I would keep my binder on hand at every individual or small group conference during Writing Workshop.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed using these in my classroom. The simplicity of it made it very easy to use." ~Erika W.

Be sure to download the sample for a full overview of what you get.

Each sheet includes:

~ One Common Core State Standard
~ Common Core State Standard anchor
~ Essential skills students need to know in order to master each standard
~ Academic vocabulary students will be familiar with
~ Examples from the CCSS appendix
~ Smarter Balanced Assessment claim
~ Guiding questions to use in your Writing Workshop
~ The equivalent standard that comes before and after your grade level
~ Teaching ideas that help get you started with this standard

I took each standard and anchor and broke them down to the small steps students will take to achieve mastery. In my personal Language CCSS Handbook, I added lesson plans that worked well behind the applicable standard for easy reference.

Keep this ELA CCSS Handbook close at hand for creating guiding questions, or coming up with them on the fly when meeting with individuals or small groups.

I often brought my handbook with me to collaborative meetings with my teaching team. It came in handy to have the "before" and "after" standards at hand when meeting with my grade band of 2 or 3 grade levels for planning purposes.
