A note about the standards.
On this page you'll find a link to the English core curriculum standards. The standards are the same grades 9-12. The degree in which students master the standards varies by grade level. So we may introduce a standard to a student at grade 9, practice it in grades 10 and 11, then reach mastery at grade 12. I hope that this helps you decipher some meaning from the numbers and letters, and gives you some insight as to why these standards seem to be repeated across grade levels. You can find the link HERE. These are the standards I follow when planning lessons. Watch for updates to this page.
