Summary of Alignment & Usability for StoryTown | ELA
The instructional materials for StoryTown 2009 (with 2012 CCSS Pack) for Grade 6 do not meet the criterial for alignment. The materials partially meet alignment for text quality and rigor. Most tasks in reading, writing, speaking, and listening are not text focused requiring students to read closely. The materials do include some support for writing instruction but do not build student development of academic vocabulary nor knowledge building.
