CCR Standards
  • Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text. (Apply this standard to texts of appropriate complexity as outlined by Standard 10.)

  • Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.

Lead CCR Level Specific Standards
Reading Anchor 1: Level D
  • Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. 

Writing Anchor 5: Level D
  • With some guidance and support from peers and others, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed. (Editing for conventions should demonstrate command of Language standards 1–3 at this level.)
