To create a rigorous unit of study with embedded lessons teachers must have a complete set of intentionally aligned component pieces. It includes, clear learning outcomes with matching assessments, engaging learning experiences, and instructional strategies that are sequenced and organized to build upon each other.
The Common Core standards establish a “staircase” of increasing complexity in what students must be able to do. We have put together lessons/strategies that are intentionally aligned to the “staircase” of complexity established by the Common Core Standards.
It does not matter if you have a prepackaged or a homegrown curriculum, this is a fantastic resource that provides multiple lessons/strategies. Use it to aid you in your design of learning experiences/differentiation and to target both the standards and the needs of your students.
Rather than riffle through multiple resources and numerous web pages, this resource is a one stop shopping for lessons/strategies.
Be sure to utilize the graphic organizers we have created to accompany the lessons/strategies (separate document).
Included in this resource are
• 21 different strategies/lessons aligned to Reading Informational Text
• Standard: CCSS ELA Literacy R.I. >> .3
• Grades 2-8
