Common Core State Standards - ELA & Literacy Module 1


News Announcements
CCSS
To help educators understand the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, Module 1: Common Core Instruction for ELA & Literacy explains the unique Common Core emphasis—teaching students literacy skills in English Language Arts (ELA) and to apply them in every other subject.

Module 1 addresses the following questions for K-12 educators of all subject areas:

  • How are the CCSS organized to emphasize Literacy in every class?

  • Why do the CCSS feature ELA and Literacy together?

  • What are the six Common Core shifts?

    • How are they different from what we’re already doing?

    • How do they impact teaching?

    • What do they look like in ELA and in subject-area classrooms?

Each of the six 45-minute sessions includes a Facilitator’s Guide, a PowerPoint presentation, and handouts for session activities. Resources for Module 1 are drawn from “K-12 Teachers: Building Comprehension in the Common Core,” a chapter in Oregon’s new Literacy Plan. ODE acknowledges the Northwest Regional Comprehensive Center (NWRCC) for their role in the review of these materials.
