Common Core Bundle for Grades 9-12

Common Core Standards Reading Literature & Nonfiction/Informational Graphic Organizers Bundle for Grades 6-12

Do you need to implement the Common Core Standards into your curriculum? These graphic organizers are written for each individual anchor standard for Reading Literature and Reading Informational (for nonfiction), grades 11-12, and will work for any piece of literature or non-fiction: short stories, plays, novels, poems, essays, speeches, articles, biographies, etc.. Just select an organizer for the literature or piece of non-fiction you are reading to practice that particular standard/skill. They are all labeled clearly with each standard.

This set includes 154 different organizers for the 10 anchor standards in reading. It builds upon the organizers for previous grades (which cover similar, if not identical, anchor standards) and is customized for the additional practice for older students.

Skills practiced in the organizers include: inference (inferring), complex character analysis, theme and plot development, compare/contrast two different works of same subject matter, understanding of cultural experiences, figurative language meaning and purpose, point of view, role of character, understanding author's purpose and choices, how language affects the tone and meaning, how an author uses allusions, analysis of rhetorical devices, connotation, text structure, style, reasoning, delineation, and reading comprehension. Social studies and government teachers will find use in the organizers for evaluating and analyzing U.S. texts, such as the Constitution, the Preamble, the Bill of Rights, Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address, and more.

Additional handouts for the College and Career Readiness in History are also included. Students in advanced classes in 9th-10th grades may utilize these worksheets.

A multi-user site license is available. It is perfect for entire English and history departments who need to implement the common core standards into their curriculum. Click on the license button and choose how many you need to purchase. You will get the additional copies for a reduced price.

I also have organizers for grades 9-10 and 6, 7, and 8 (see below). There is no need to purchase both packages if you teach 9-12; purchase the 11-12 because it includes ALL of the 9-10 organizers.
