Common Core Curriculum Map Project
Common Core’s Curriculum Maps in English Language Arts translate the new Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten through 12th grade into unit maps that teachers can use to plan their year, craft their own more detailed curriculum, and create lesson plans. They were written by public school teachers for public school teachers and are available free of charge to anyone who would like to use them.

High School Sequencing for English/Language Arts

(Effective 2012-2013)

The English I course provides a foundational study of literary genres (novels, short stories, poetry, drama, literary nonfiction). It should include influential U.S. documents and one Shakespearean play.

English II introduces literary global perspectives focusing on literature from the Americas (Caribbean, Central, South, and North), Africa, Eastern Europe, Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East. Influential U.S. documents and a Shakespearean play should be included.

English III is an in-depth study of U.S. literature and U.S. literary nonfiction especially foundational works and documents from the 17th century through the early 20th century. At least one Shakespearean play should be included.

English IV completes the global perspective initiated in English II. Though its focus is on European (Western, Southern, Northern) literature, this course includes important U.S. documents and literature (texts influenced by European philosophy or action). At least one Shakespearean play should be included.
