Welcome to the English Language Arts (ELA) Georgiastandards.Org (GSO) page. The ELA team has been working to transfer the existing resources to the new Standards. On this page, you will find the revised ELA Standards K – 12 with glossary, a link to Striving Reader resources, links to join the ELA Listserv, the most recent editions of the ELA Reporter, and Professional Learning Webinars.
Within the pages of the revised GSO website, you will also find updated planning templates and curriculum maps for each ELA grade and course. There is also an updated Guidance document for “Things to Consider” When Developing K-12 reading lists. It is important to note that the ELA team is currently working to revise and update the grade-level Teacher Guidance documents.
