Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks
Four Quick Reference Guides (QRGs) to the 2017 Curriculum Framework for English Language Arts and Literacy are now available!
The first, Massachusetts Anchor Standards for Reading, shows how the ten anchor standards work together to define what and how students should read in school.
Anchor Standards for Reading
Two additional QRGs, one tailored to the elementary grades and another for the secondary grades, describe the role of close reading in the standards and in the classroom.
Reading Closely to Analyze Complex Texts – Elementary
Reading Closely to Analyze Complex Texts – Secondary
A fourth, Text Complexity and the Growth of Reading Comprehension, provides guidelines and resources designed to help educators choose appropriately complex texts for their students.
Text Complexity and the Growth of Reading Comprehension
