A Glossary of Teacher Friendly Terms Supporting K-12 ELA Standards

The Oakdale Writing Partnership and Continuum has revised and formatted two types of glossaries. The first glossary, K-12 Standards Glossary, is an alphabetical list of terms from the California Department of Education standards with the definitions for those terms. The terms given by the CDE have been adapted by The Oakdale Writing Partnership and Continuum in order to make the terms teacher friendly. In addition, terms were added in order to support understanding of the standards.

​Individualized Grade Level Glossaries are designed to support teachers' grade level understanding of writing terminology.
