  • I can define inference and explain how a reader uses details and examples from a text to reach a logical conclusion.
  • I can define reading strategies that help me understand the text I am reading.
  • I can define summary (a shortened version of the text that states key points).

Skills (Performance) Targets

  • I can re-read text to find evidence to support my answers.
  • I can read closely and find answers that are "right there" in the text.
  • I can analyze an author's words and refer to details and examples in the text when answering questions about the text.
  • I can summarize the text.

The student can ...
1 Beginning
... with help, demonstrates a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes (Score 2.0 content) and some of the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).
... retell the information from the text but may leave out important details about the topic or main ideas of the text.
2 Developing
... demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes but exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes (Score 3.0 content).

  • recognize or recall specific terminology, such as:
    • inference, text evidence, summarize, explicitly, cite
  • perform basic processes, such as:
    • ask and answer inferential questions about the text and support those answers with evidence from the text
    • partially summarize text
