Common Core Standards for English Language Arts

  • The NY State Standards for English Language Arts
    and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects


    The K–12 standards define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade. They correspond to the College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchor standards.

    The CCR and grade-specific standards are necessary complements—the former providing
    broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity—that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate.
