If your school uses the Marzano Framework or iObservations for Teacher Evaluations, this product will save you weeks of work! They perfectly align to a growth mindset, standards-based grading, and make differentiation planning easy! Inspired by Marzano’s research in “The NEW Art and Science of Teaching” these posters break down the standards into four scales from 1-4 (levels of difficulty), with a learning goal statement accompanying each one. Visit Mrs. L’s website for a short video explaining how scales for Math and ELA were designed. (Look for “Marzano Posters” under the RESOURCES tab.)
* This document is flexibly aligned to the original Common Core standards because it is 50% EDITABLE.

This resource represents a sample of the complete set of standards for ELA which includes every standard in color, black & white, and EDITABLE Standards, and LEVELS 3 and 4 on every poster.

This is how Marzano Scales work: proficiency in each standard is represented by a score of 3. A score of 4 indicates an advanced knowledge of the skill, usually above grade level. The learning goals assigned to scores of 2 and 1, are either derived from sub-skills of the standard, or from the background knowledge of earlier grade levels. Students will be amazed by their progress by the end of the year! Resources such as Bloom’s and Marzano’s Taxonomy were also used to create the scales.
