Anchor charts are critically important in middle school language arts. Prior to the TNReady/ Common Core shift, the curriculum was almost entirely standards based. Making concepts sticky for students is one way to help them remember key skills. Another is by ensuring students interact with the content on a daily basis. The anchor charts about reading strategies, evidence, and context clues stay up all year. Every quarter, I introduce 1-3 anchor charts with content key content that is spiraled throughout the quarter.
All of these anchor charts are available on my Teachers Pay Teacher Store for $1 each. They come as PDF files and can be printed as a poster or handout for students.
