#11361 ELA Standards: Speaking and Listening

The ELA Speaking and Listening Standards address our students’ ability to listen to and discuss texts that are read aloud or information that is presently orally, in order to gain information. These standards overlap with the ELA reading, language, and writing standards. They cannot be viewed as six separate silos.

Come and join me as we learn how to integrate the Speaking and Listening Standards into your lessons.

“The speaking and listening standards expect students to participate in rich, structure conversations in which they are building on the ideas of others and speaking in complete sentences. Teachers need to create models and routines for deliberate and intentional dialogue that builds bridges to the students’ reading and writing.

To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations-as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner.
