These are lesson plans/modules for teachers who want to implement the Common Core Learning Standards but are short on resources and budgets. It is a part of the "Anthology Alignment Project" at Achievethecore.org. There is also the opportunity to join the group on Edmodo. The project takes anthologies widely in circulation and aligns them to the CCLS. I love what this group has done. The modules are solid and annotated--ready to go. Aligned to: RL.7.1, RL.7.2, RL.7.3, RL.7.6; W.7.1, W.7.4, W.7.5, W.7.9; SL.7.1; L.7.1, L.7.6

Analyze how an author develops and contrasts the points of view of different characters or narrators in a text.
Write arguments to support claims with clear reasons and relevant evidence.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 7 topics, texts, and issues, building on others’ ideas and expressing their own clearly.
