CCR Standards Resources
This document provides an overview of the tools to support CCRS Implementation.
The CCRS Individualized Instruction Planning Tool is intended to help teachers in one-room school house or other individualized instruction settings plan and document standards-aligned experiences for all students. This document could be used as a teacher planning tool or as a tracking document in a student’s folder.
Use this tool to determine a resource’s (curriculum, text, lesson, book, etc.) level of CCRS alignment and to identify specific high-value actions to improve a resource’s alignment to the CCRS. Use the embedded note sheet to record your thoughts.
Use this tool to guide small group analysis of student tasks and accompanying student work to identify how effectively they reflect the intended standards.
Use this tool to guide observations of standards-based instruction in classroom settings.
Use this tool to create units or lessons aligned to the Minnesota ABE State Standards (CCRS, ACES, Northstar).
Use this tool to measure the complexity of any informational text (slightly, moderately, very, or exceedingly complex). This rubric is to be used in conjunction with the ELA CCRS-Aligned Unit & Lesson Planning Template also found in this section.
Use these CCRS reading question stems and frames to create text-dependent questions for use in close reading of texts. These stems and questions will also help prepare students for new NRS tests.
