This presentation will illustrate the shifts in assessment and instruction related to the CCSS in English Language Arts identified by the developers of both the CCSS-ELA and the forthcoming assessments.  These shifts include:  1) Regular practice with complex text and its academic language; 2) Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from literary and informational text; and 3) Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction.

A recording of the webinar can also be viewed on the CCSS playlist at the TextProject YouTube channel.
