Key Ideas and Details

  • Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it.
  • Summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
  • Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development.
  • Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.
  • Cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.

The anchor statements define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade. They correspond to the College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchor statements. The CCR and grade-specific standards are necessary complements—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity—that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate.
