How To Integrate the Arts in the ELA Common Core Classroom

Because Common Core promotes the importance of all students studying the arts, this document highlights places where ELA instruction could be enhanced by connecting a genre or particular text, or a theme of a unit, to works of art, music, or film.

Number 4: "The bulk of writing assignments should be multiparagraph compositions, such as reports and essays, rather than personal essays, memoirs, or narratives. (W1,2,7, 9.). Authors should be careful about overlooking narratives as they still account for 1/3 of CCSS writing expectations.

Common Core State Standards: English Language Arts

I like this ELA Common Core website published by North Carolina Public Schools because besides displaying the anchor standards, it's easy to see the increase in difficulty as students move to the next grade level. It covers all ELA standards, K-12.  Bookmark this to use later; it's a lot easier than flipping through the PDF doc.
