2 Using Media Formats to Increase Understanding
Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
3 Understanding and Choosing Text Structures
Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text.
Explain events, procedures, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text, including what happened and why, based on specific information in the text.
Describe the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text.
4 Moving Up on Bloom’s Taxonomy: Evaluate and Integrate Informational Text
Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text.
Compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account of the same event or topic; describe the differences in focus and the information provided.
Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably.
