Standards Progression 6-12

Literacy standards for grades 6 to 12 are grounded on teachers of English Language Arts, History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical subjects using their content area expertise to help students meet the particular challenges of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language in their respective fields. Literacy standards specify the literacy skills and understandings required for college and career readiness in multiple disciplines. They do not replace content standards in those areas, but supplement them.
