Introducing ELAR and CCR Standards to Preservice Teachers
The ELA collaborative has several resources to assist with introducing the new English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR) and College and Career Readiness (CCR) standards to educators.
The "ELAR, CCRS and ELPS Overview" presentation provides an excellent overview of the interconnectedness of the ELAR Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) and the English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS). Particular attention is paid to how to navigate through the TEKS vertical alignment document.
The "CCRS ELA Overview" presentation provides an excellent overview of the readiness standards for English language arts and the additional cross-disciplinary standards that faculty and students alike will need to be familiar with.
