I can identify key words that lead me to an inference.
I can describe what the author tells me in the text.
I can identify a "right there" question.
I can define inference and explain how a reader uses direct quotes from a text to reach a logical conclusion ("based on what Iv'e read, it's most likely true that......").
I can determine what I already know about the text (background knowledge) I am reading through my own experiences.
I can define summary (a shortened version of the text that states the key points).
Skills (Performance) Targets
I can quote ("word for word" support) accurately from a text.
I can re-read to find answers explicitly in the text (right there answers) and answers that require an inference (answers are not stated directly in the text).
I can analyze an author's word and find quotes needed to support both right there questions and inferential questions.
I can summarize the text using the important details.
The student can ...
... 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, needing prompting to provide details that support the main idea of the text.
... 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).
... summarize important information including details that support the main idea of the text.
recognize or recall specific terminology, such as:
quote, inference, textual evidence/details, summarize, main idea
perform basic processes, such as:
refer to details and examples using text evidence when explaining what the text says refers to details and examples in a text when making inferences summarize the text
“The Standard.” ... demonstrates no major errors or omissions regarding any of the information and processes that were end of instruction expectations.
... quote directly from the text, using key vocabulary and referencing the specific evidence when summarizing a text at the middle fluent reading stage.
quote accurately using textual evidence when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text
summarize the text
... demonstrates in-depth inferences and applications regarding more complex material that go beyond end of instruction expectations.
... use quotes and provides direct references to text evidence and vocabulary when summarizing a text at the end of the fluent reading stage.
demonstrate an in-depth understanding by quoting accurately when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
