Nevada Academic Content Standards
In the WCSD Curriculum and Instruction Department, we have found the following links helpful in understanding and working with the NVACS.
The ELA Instructional Shifts are a set of descriptors for the Common Core that emphasize the importance of building knowledge, reading, and writing grounded in evidence from the text, and regular practice with complex texts and academic vocabulary. By matching classroom instruction to the ELA Shifts, you are moving your students towards College and Career Readiness.
The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust funded the development of this collection of classroom videos and associated lesson materials to help K-12 educators implement the instructional shifts required by the Common Core State Standards. Each videotaped lesson includes descriptive annotations that identify lesson elements, and teacher and student actions and behaviors, that support Common Core learning.
