10th Grade ELA Targeted Standards [RL] Reading Literature Strand Cluster: Key Ideas and Details
ELA-10.RL.03 Analyze how and why characters and/or textual elements (e.g., symbolism, mood, setting, etc.) develop and interact over the course of a text, interact with other elements, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
Student Learning Targets:
I can identify different types of characters (static, dynamic, round, flate) and the role they play in the plot.
I can explain the role of complex characters in a text
I can analyze how complex characters develop over the course of a text.
I can analyze how characters develop through their interactions with others.
I can analyze how complex characters advance the plot of a text and/or contribute to the development of the theme.
Skills (Performance) Targets
I can produce writing or speaking evidence that reveals my understanding of how characters propel the plot forward and contribute to them and/or how characters develop throughout the course of a text.
Measurement of Progress
KEY IDEAS & DETAILS (LITERATURE)
Students can CITE STRONG AND THOROUGH TEXTUAL EVIDENCE as they
RL9-10.1 Read closely to comprehend texts of grade-level appropriate complexity a. Determine what the text says explicitly and implicitly b. Provide an objective summary of the text
RL9-10.2 Determine and analyze a theme and/or central idea of texts -- analyze the development of theme or central idea over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details.
RL9-10.3 Analyze how and why characters and/or textual elements (e.g., symbolism, mood, setting, etc.) develop and interact over the course of a text, interact with other elements, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
In addition to expectations of proficiency, student provides consistent evidence of in-depth inferences and applications that go beyond what was taught and expected.
elicits strong and thorough textual evidence (often cross referencing with other sources) while insightfully analyzing the development of theme(s) development and/or central idea(s) as well as the impact of the author’s choices on setting, plot, and characterization.
relies on strong and thorough textual evidence while
analyzing the development of theme(s) and/or central idea(s)
analyzing the impact of the author’s choices on setting, plot, and characterization.
accurately determines what the text says explicitly, even in more complex texts where ambiguities surface
moves beyond summary to analysis.
There are no major errors or omissions regarding the simpler details and processes; however the student exhibits major errors or omissions regarding the more complex ideas and processes.
summarizes key ideas of a text, but struggles to consistently and relevantly draw from the text to support analysis.
recognizes or recalls specific terminology that relates to literature, such as:
textual evidence, setting, plot, characterization, theme vs. central idea and topic, analysis, summary
With help, a partial understanding of some of the simpler details and processes and some of the more complex ideas and processes.
