As a middle school teacher I often struggle with differentiating my instruction to meet the needs of each student. I found that using this evolution of standards chart has improved my small group instruction. I am able to see what the grade level expectation is and scaffold my instruction in order for my students to reach the new expectations set by the common core. This tool is also great for your highly capable and gifted students as you can quickly see how to challenge them.
This document includes each informational text standard K-12 to show how it grows and deepens as a child progresses through their educational career. I have also included the Science and Social Studies Literacy Standards as well.
I would love your feedback! Please leave a comment to let me know if these are beneficial and if you would like be to post them for the other standards-Writing, Language, Speaking and Listening.
