  2. Develop the topic with well-chosen, relevant, and sufficient facts, extended definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples appropriate to the audience’s knowledge of the topic.

  3. Use appropriate and varied transitions to link the major sections of the text, create cohesion, and clarify the relationships among complex ideas and concepts.

  4. Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to manage the complexity of the topic.

  5. Establish and maintain a formal style and objective tone while attending to the norms and conventions of the discipline in which they are writing.

  6. Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the information or explanation presented (e.g., articulating implications or the significance of the topic). (9-10.W.2)

Research to Build and Present Knowledge

 

  1. Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

  2. Apply grades 9–10 Reading standards to literary nonfiction (e.g., "Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is valid and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; identify false statements and fallacious reasoning"). (9-10.W.9)
