The 10 Common Core standards for writing are divided into four distinct categories that are listed in the left column below. The standards below are referred to as College and Career Readiness Anchor Standards for Writing. These are the ultimate goals of the K-12 school experience --the writing skills learners need to master in order to be considered "college and career ready" before leaving high school.
They are adjusted for each grade-level and each are expanded upon with grade-level specific sub-standards. Click on these links for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to see how each of the Writing Anchor standards are adjusted for each middle school grade level.
Which standards are you meeting? What standards might you work to implement this year and the years that follow? What does implementation of these standards look like in an after-school adolescent literacy program context?
