The English/Language Arts (ELA) Standards Writing Committee membership is finalized and will meet again on May 14th and 15th, 2015. We are excited to begin this important work toward higher standards for ELA in Oklahoma, and would like to personally invite all teachers, administrators, parents, and community members to provide feedback on the current standards through the survey linked below.
The purpose of this survey is to collect feedback on the current Priority Academic Student Skills (PASS) standards for ELA, in order to help inform the Writing Committee in the development of new ELA academic standards for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12.
This survey will also give the option to provide open commentary and/or suggestions for each of the skill strands comprising the standards. The standards are organized into broad skill strands: (1) Reading/Literature standards, (2) Writing/Grammar/Usage & Mechanics standards, (3) Oral Language/Listening and Speaking standards, and (4) Visual Literacy standards.
Early Childhood & Elementary Grades (PreK-5) Surveys
The PreK-5 ELA PASS standards are organized in broad skill strands by grade level and available for download. Please review the standards and determine if these are realistic expectations for students progressing from early childhood to elementary school.
Secondary Grades (5-12) Surveys
In order to provide accurate feedback, please download the linked Vertical Progression Guides for grades 5-8, 8-10, and 10-12. These will provide an overview of the ELA standards as they look from grade-to-grade. The vertical progression guides will also be accessible at the start of each survey for grades 5-8, 8-10, and 10-12.
Thank you again for your time and interest!
