Content Strands

The standards document has been broken into its four content strands: reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. The Maine Department of Education's English language arts team recommends considering all of the materials related to each strand as a method of studying and implementing the standards at the local level.

All of the following PDFs were isolated from the Common Core State Standards Initiative website, where you can find the same information in alignment with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility standards.
