  • The intent of this standard is that students can make connections between topics of interest and sources with guidance and support.
    • Developing the ability to ask questions about a topic will help students develop deeper comprehension skills later on.

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
