This unit was developed in accordance with Common Core State Standards. However, the integration of all or part of this unit will meet many general standards.
Reading for Information-Key Ideas and Details: Students will cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. Students will analyze in detail how a key individual, event, or idea is introduced, illustrated, and elaborated in a text (e.g., through examples or anecdotes). Students will determine an author's point of view or purpose in a text and explain how it is conveyed in the text.
Reading for Information- Integration of Knowledge and Ideas: Students will integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.
Reading for Information- Literacy: Students will trace and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, distinguishing claims that are supported by reasons and evidence from claims that are not. Students will compare and contrast one author's presentation of events with that of another (e.g., a memoir written by and a biography on the same person).
Mathematics- Content: Students will display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. Students will summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context and be able to report the number of observations. Students will describe the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement.
Literacy in History and Social Studies-Key Ideas and Details: Students will cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources. Students will integrate visual information (e.g., in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts.
