School Improvement in Maryland

Teaching And Learning: Reading/English Language Arts

Marylandís College and Career-Ready Standards

In June, 2010, the Maryland State Board of Education adopted the College and Career-Ready Standards for English Language Arts; Literacy in History/Social Studies; and Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects. Since that time, educators from around the state have met to determine the best way for Maryland teachers to transition from the existing State Curriculum to the Marylandís College and Career-Ready Standards. The draft frameworks that follow are the result of this work.

Disciplinary Literacy Frameworks

With Maryland's adoption of the Standards, teachers in all subject areas will build discipline - specific literacy into daily instruction. The disciplinary literacy standards are not meant to replace existing content standards in the history, social studies, science, or technical subject classrooms, but rather to support them.
