Standards Map for 7th Grade English

Each 7th grade Fishtank ELA unit deepens student mastery of a set of grade-level standards. These are split into core standards (standards especially important for understanding the core text and knowledge of the unit) and spiral standards (standards that students repeatedly use as they engage with, discuss, or write about a text). To learn more about how student mastery of the standards develops based on the focus areas of each 7th grade unit, read our 7th Grade English Course Overview.
