Balancing Informational & Literary Text

 Shift 4

Text-based Answers

Students engage in rich and rigorous evidence based conversations about text.

 

2012 - 2013

Shift 5

Writing from Sources

Writing emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument.

 

2011 - 2013

 Shift 6
