Curriculum Frameworks

Lego Building BlocksELA Curriculum Frameworks

The Oklahoma Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts are intended to be models of instruction aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards. Each framework was developed by Oklahoma educators with the intention of increasing understanding of the English Language Arts standards by providing a fluid template for curriculum design and planning instruction.

A special thanks to our friends at the University of Central Oklahoma and the University of Oklahoma for donating beautiful and flexible workspace for our twenty-seven Oklahoma teachers to convene and tap into scholarly creativity while researching and developing the frameworks during the 2016 Summer.
