TRAJECTORY ANALYSIS CHARTS: Reading Informational Texts (RIT)

The Literacy Cookbook COVERRecently I posted a trajectory analysis chart for RIT Standard #1, looking at the progression of that standard from K-12.  In that blog post, I also explained how to analyze the trajectory of a standard and why it is important to do so.  While working with some folks who are rewriting their English/Language Arts curriculum this past week, it became apparent to me that curriculum writers could really benefit from a more complete set of trajectory analysis charts.


So, on the TLC “Standards” page, I posted a complete set of charts for ALL of the RIT standards.  And in the coming days and weeks, I will be adding similar charts for other standards.


Bottom Line/Shameless Plug: You don’t need to spend time creating these charts!  Become a TLC Website subscriber  (for a mere $25 if you use the 50%-off discount code here), and get your hands on these tools TODAY.
