For many ESE teachers of multiple grade levels and varying abilities it is difficult to compare standards, access points, and essential understandings without scrolling through a long document and going back and forth many times. This document contains ELA Informational Text standards, access points, and EU's which have been reformatted for easier comparison across grade levels. Rather than presenting the standards by grade level, this format presents them by standard. All grade levels are located on the same page for each standard.
Not only is this document great for comparing across grade levels when planning, but it can also be a great tool for data. Teachers can print one for each student and highlight where the student is performing at the end of each marking period. This has been a great tool that I have used at IEP meetings when discussing present level of performance.
Note: If you are a teacher in Palm Beach County these will be available to you on Blender.
