Evaluating sources and using evidence are essential components of answering compelling and
supporting questions. Students express their responses to compelling and supporting questions
through well-reasoned explanations and evidence-based arguments. These responses can take
many forms (e.g., oral presentations, summaries of survey results, political cartoons);
regardless of the form, students’ conclusions will reflect the information or evidence selected
from sources.

Although evaluating sources and using information and evidence involves a sophisticated set of
skills, even the youngest children understand the need to give reasons for their ideas. As they
progress through the grades, students learn more advanced approaches related to these skills.
In the subsection Developing Claims and Using Evidence, students generate claims and identify
evidence to support those claims.

The specific skills described in Dimension 3 support the examination of content using concepts
and tools from the disciplines of civics, economics, geography, and history.
