Introduction to the ELAOK Framework

Page history last edited by Jason Stephenson 1 year, 3 months ago

Welcome to the ELA Framework Homepage


The Oklahoma Academic Standards for English Language Arts (OAS-ELA) were adopted in the spring of 2016. The Oklahoma State Department of Education wishes to ensure all Oklahoma educators deeply understand the recursive nature of reading and writing to fully meet the intent of the standards. This website supports educators with resources that promote implementing the standards with fidelity.


Navigation Tips:

  • The arrow in the upper right corner hides and displays the side column.
  • Watch this short YouTube video for an introduction to the site.
