This Teacher Reference Guide contains detailed background information about each of the grade-level language standards (what are the relative pronouns, what are modal auxiliaries, etc.). This information can help you, the teacher, more easily incorporate powerful language instruction as you and your students read the grade-level texts included in your district's adopted ELA program.
The document includes information about what students in learned in the previous grade level(s), and what they are expected to know at the end of your grade level.
Also included is a list of suggested Academic Language for your particular grade level. It is critical for students to learn these high-use words early in order to increase their ability to read complex text. There is a 2-page standards maps that shows the progression of the language standards across grades K through 8.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THERE ARE WAYS THAT I COULD MAKE THIS DOCUMENT MORE USEFUL FOR YOU. MY AIM IS TO HELP TEACHERS TEACH!
