Common Core Writing In Action

The Common Core Writing Standards for Literacy require students to engage in disciplinary specific writing tasks. And for each type of writing, there are a number of skills that our students must learn in order to write well. LiteracyTA has created the Teacher Assistant (TA), student resources, and professional development for teachers that put the Common Core Writing Standards for Literacy into action. The table below provides links to resources that teachers should use to help implement the Common Core Literacy Standards.
