The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (ELA) encompass new requirements for instruction in Kindergarten through grade 5. In addition to comprehension, the use of informational and complex texts, and writing skills, the K-5 ELA standards include Foundational Skills that focus on print concepts, phonological awareness, phonics and word recognition, and fluency. Participants will examine the ELA standards including the instructional shifts, the emphasis on informational and complex text, and the importance of the Reading Foundational Skills.
