ELA 3-8 Summary of Alignment & Usability

The instructional materials for StoryTown 2009 (with 2012 CCSS Pack) for Grade 6 do not meet the criterial for alignment. TheĀ materials partially meet alignment for text quality and rigor. MostĀ tasks in reading, writing, speaking, and listening are not text focused requiring students to read closely. The materials do include some support for writing instruction but do not build student development of academic vocabulary nor knowledge building.
