c. include paraphased evidence and supporting details compiled through the formal research process, including use of a library catalog, , magazines, newspapers, dictionaries, online sources, and other reference materials.

6. Compose summaries of reading material that:

a. include the main ideas and most significant details.

b. use the student's own words, except for quotations.

Make the summary clear enough that it would provide another student with the important information from the chapter.

 

7. Write for different purposes and to a specific audience or person, adjusting tone and style as necessary to make writing interesting.

 

Example: Write stories and reports showing a variety of word choices, or review a favorite book or film.
