Vertical alignment not only creates understandings of depth of the standards taught, but also connections to the grade levels that are before and after their grade. These connections enable teachers to have critical understandings of their own content taught, and recognize where they should start and stop in their standards. In turn, this process allows teachers to achieve the appropriate depth of knowledge necessary for their curriculums, and ensures consistency occurs across grade levels.
