Claims, Targets, Standards Alignment
How to Bring it All Together
As I worked through creating lessons for ELA it became more and more apparent that these standards are organized in such a way that I could be covering multiple at a time. That was the first ah-ha, then in the last year as a district we came to better understand the Targets and how they bring together groups of standards that cover multiple domains (Reading and Language).
In NVUSD we have aligned our pacing guides to the Instructional Targets. Currently we have 3-8th grade ELA Pacing guides that provide teachers a resource for what groups of targets to focus on and when. Below is the snapshot of the 4th grade pacing guide, and you can access the 3-5th Grade and 6-8th Grade Pacing Guides and print to reference.
