Unit 1: Examining the CCSS for Reading Literature and Informational Text

1.1.4 Examining a Standard Across Grade Levels

Time to Apply

Turning our attention directly to the informational text reading standards, it is extremely helpful to examine a single standard’s progression from kindergarten to Grade 12 and the relationship to the CCR Anchor Standard. Begin by looking at CCR Anchor Standard for Reading 1.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

Now look at how the standard progresses across the grades on this document for Standard 1. Pay close attention to how it changes from grade to grade. Also consider the benefits of examining a standard progression across the grades. 

Time to Extend

Take a look at another standard and examine its progression across the grades. Consider how you can explore these standards with your PLC.
