Topic: Reading Standards for Science, Grades 9 and 10

10-second review: Key ideas and details. Craft and structure. Integration of knowledge and ideas. Range and level of text complexity.
Key Ideas and Details
.Cite specific textual evidence, including precise details of explanations or descriptions.
.analyze the development of a text's explanation of a process or phenomenon, summarizing the central
ideas and supporting details.
.Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments taking measurements.
Craft and Structure
.Determine the meaning of key terms and symbols, noting the relationships among terms (e.g., force, friction, reaction force, energy).
.Analyze relationships among concepts in a text. .Analyze the purpose of an experiment, including the possibilities ruled out by the experimental results.
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
.Integrate technical information presented graphically with other information in the text.
.Assess the extent to which the evidence in a text supports a scientific claim or a recommendation for
solving a technical problem.
.Compare experimental findings presented in a text to information from other sources noting when the
findings support or contradict previous explanations or accounts.
Range and Level of Text Complexity
.Develop a method for reading complex scientific texts.
