This set of signs and the accompanying checklists are designed to help you easily implement the Common Core State Standards for writing in science & technical subjects for grades 6th through 8th into your daily lessons. These are in PDF format which means they are easily opened on any computer using the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. Files are not editable.
Print the “I Can” statement signs and post on your board configuration or display anywhere in your classroom for easy reference. Posting “I can” statements, written in more age-appropriate language, will help students better understand and focus on the day’s objective(s) as well as help you stay organized and on track. Files can also be opened and displayed using a computer and a projector.
The checklist is straightforward with date boxes to document when the standards are covered and when they are assessed. The simplicity of the layout and color-coding that matches the signs makes it easy to use and a simple, yet effective way to document CCSS use. Just add the check list to your lesson plans and your administrator(s) will have no doubt you are implementing the Common Core State Standards.
