I know I promised to share how we aligned our Speech Masters program to the Common Core without spending a dime on expensive textbooks and consultants. Click here and you will find our Course Syllabus for the Middle School Speech Masters Program which includes the standards addressed in our program. We used the Speaking & Listening Common Core Lesson Plan Template from the CD for 6th-8th grade and added in all of the weekly activities directly underneath the corresponding standards. The attached syllabus simply shows which standards we aligned our program to. Keep in mind that these standards are all in drop down menus within the Common Core Lesson Plan Templates themselves, so it was very easy to stay organized and focused as we matched our weekly activities with the corresponding CCSS.
