→Important note: Because of how the state of Florida altered their standards (to become the LAFS), these stems ARE

I work in the assessment department of one of the top 10 largest districts in the country, and we are in the forefront of standards-based assessment. Florida's state standards are based on CCSS (and in fact, for grades 6-12, the standards are identical to CCSS except for a single word on one of the high school Language standards). We send district personnel to standards trainings across the country and I have worked with many of them to learn the ins and outs of CCSS.
I created this for my district's middle grades Language Arts teachers and have gotten great feedback on it.
