ELA Tools Aligned to Common Core Standards
Teachers tackling the ELA Common Core State Standards know how challenging it can be to adequately cover all the skills students need to master. It doesn't matter if you're teaching elementary, middle, or high school; each has its own challenges. Since the ELA CCSS were designed to better prepare students for success in school and life, they're extensive and require students to build and demonstrate deep reading and writing skills. There are tons of tools out there that claim to support the standards, but the tools on this list are specifically targeted at the CCSS and its unique framework. To this end, there are tools that'll help students develop foundational understanding of phonics or grammar as well as skills-building tools for textual analysis and supporting arguments with evidence. So whether you're looking for help with vocabulary-building or reading comprehension or writing clearly, we hope you'll find something on this list relevant and useful to you and your students.
