Development and Review of the Standards
The standards writing development was informed through the efforts of the Standards Steering Committee organized by the Oklahoma State Board of Education. The English Language Arts (ELA) Writing Team includes a combination of sixteen Oklahoma educators from PK-12 and higher education in collaboration with the Oklahoma State Department of Education. The ELA Writing Team collaborated in person and through virtual workspaces to produce multiple drafts of the standards and respond to feedback submitted for each draft. The final draft represents the culmination of intensive research, collaboration, and advocacy among Oklahoma teachers, students, administrators, parents, businesses, district representatives, and multiple education stakeholders.
