Ohio teachers worked in teams in 2010 to suggest instructional strategies and resources that align with the Ohio's Learning Standards in English Language Arts. The State Board of Education adopted the results of their work, English Language Arts Model Curricula, in March 2011.

In October 2013, Career Connections strategies were added to the Instructional Strategies in the model curricula.
