Hello awesome Teaching the Core readers! In our plodding quest to conquer the anchor standards, we’ve arrived at SL.CCR.4.
SL.CCR.4–that’s the 4th College and Career Readiness anchor standard within the Speaking and Listening strand of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA / Literacy–says:
Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
I think I’ll call this one the “stand and deliver” standard, or maybe the “who wouldn’t hire you if you can do this?” standard. Perhaps you could even call it the “it doesn’t sound sexy, but it is” standard.
I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s explore SL.CCR.4 a bit.
