Vertical Articulation of CCSS
One way to understand the CCSS is to analyze the content and cognitive demands of the standards. Below are links to the vertical articulation of the standards for each of the strands –Reading: Literary Texts, Reading: Informational Texts, Reading: Foundational Skills, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language.
Look at one standard and see how it changes from one grade level to another. The standards can change in the complexity of the content demand (i.e., characters – character traits), complexity of the cognitive demand (i.e., identify – describe), or both. By analyzing the content and cognitive demands of the standards, teachers will be better equipped to target and differentiate instruction.
