Highest Frequency Words in the CCSS for ELA & Literacy

By Dave Stuart Jr.

Inspired by Partner in Education's Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Wordle, I plugged the standards document into Tagxedo to see which words dominate the standards. See the results below:

I did delete the most frequent word — standards — but, otherwise, word size is based on frequency. The more a word appears in the CCSS, the larger it appears in the word cloud.

    Hi Dave, I really admire the ingenuity of how this graphic represents the academic language of the CCSS. I’m a teacher in Portland, OR, and I would love to share this graphic with my staff -if that’s OK with you.
    Could I share this graphic with my staff? If so, I will post it on a district-wide-teaching site for our educators.
    Thank Dave,

    Josh, have at it! I’d love if you could share the resource with as many folks as will benefit.

    Have a great day,

    Dear Dave,
    Eugenian here! I, too, would like to use your graphic in an ISTE 2014 presentation. I would be certain to credit you as author. May I use?
