Instructional Blueprint ELA K-5

The following resources serve as a framework to guide instruction and assessment:

The checklist gives teachers a yearlong overview of what standards are explicitly taught and assessed in each Instructional Focus (IF). By seeing the whole year, teachers see how many times a standard is taught and assessed helping teachers work with students who are not mastering the skills.

The blueprints are divided into Instructional Focus (IF) and is the framework for which teachers should build their units. The blueprint gives possible titles, a suggested time, and lists all the standards to be explicitly taught and mastered.

The ELA grade level Focus KUD is the document that describes in detail the IF group of standards showing: Know, Understand, and Do of the standards, shows the standards for that year and IF, plus the year previous and year later, the vocabulary for the IF, and the student-friendly objectives.
