In June 2019, the State Board of Education adopted the Oregon English Language Arts and Literacy Standards, which represent K-12 learning expectations for students in English Language Arts. The Oregon Department of Education collaborated with Oregon educators to identify and develop high quality standards in order to prepare Oregon students with the important knowledge and literacy skills necessary to succeed for college and career readiness. The Standards are the foundation English Language Arts classes that prepare students for the Oregon Diploma.
This page supports Oregon students, families and educators in identifying the 2019 Oregon English language arts standards and the successful implementation across the State of Oregon.
All ELA standards from K–12 are placed in one document with a table of contents at the beginning. By presenting the standards in a vertical chart by standard, we are seeking to emphasize how the skills for reading, writing, language, and speaking and listening spiral through all of the grade levels.
This document provides the progression of Foundational Reading Standards across all grades, K-5. Educators are encouraged to use this document as an instructional support tool to assist foundational reading skill development.
These documents provide the correlations between the 2019 Oregon ELA Standards and the previous standards; Oregon Common Core State Standards (2010). Teachers are encouraged to use these documents as an instructional support tool during the transition and implementation of the 2019 ELA Standards.
These documents align the 2019 Oregon ELA Standards with the major learning targets in grades 3-12 and the Oregon Statewide Assessment for English Language Arts. These documents provide educators with key evidence statements, the different levels of proficiency as aligned to the achievement level descriptors (ALDs), associated learning progressions, and the Oregon Statewide Interim Assessment System resources.
The following documents pertain to specific grade level standards for both the Oregon History/ Social Studies and Oregon Science and Technical Subjects Literacy Standards. Since the standards build on each other over time, we highly recommend that educators review the standards of the grade level before and after their grade level in order to better understand how the standards in their grade level fit into the students' overall development.
These documents align the 2019 Oregon ELA RH and RST Literacy Standards with the major learning targets in grades 6-12 and the Oregon Statewide Assessment for English Language Arts. These documents provide educators with key evidence statements, the different levels of proficiency as aligned to the achievement level descriptors (ALDs), associated learning progressions, and the Oregon Statewide Interim Assessment System resources.
