What does any normal teacher do with an afternoon free, three weeks before the end of the school year? They research for next year, of course.
Anyways, I want to be sure that I completely understand the expectations of the Common Core State Standards for 9th grade ELA, so I began my search by looking up
“ways to kill myself with paperwork” “common core ela 9th grade.” I was blessed with the best resource: the Live Binder for the ELA Common Core State Standards Resource Binder. If you are a teacher of any grade level, ELA or not, this would be an amazing resource for you to look through. It contains information and resources that pertain to other grade levels and subjects than 9th grade ELA.
I took many many screen shots, and I will display them here in an effort to keep myself organized and represent the resources effectively.
