Always Learning

"To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students need to learn to use writing as a way of offering and supporting opinions, demonstrating understanding of the subjects they are studying, and conveying real and imagined experiences and events."

—Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, p. 18

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) identify three writing genres that college and career ready students should master:

  • Narrative
  • Informative/explanatory text
  • Argument

This website contains tips from Pearson's literacy experts to help you prepare your students to meet these writing standards as well as sample lesson plans by genre from Pearson's Writing Aviator program.
