Summarizing:
Just Starting Im learning what it means to summarize, considering how I already summarize in my own life, and considering how Im asked to use this skill in other settings. Making Progress I can summarize experiences / texts that are familiar to me, though I sometimes need to revisit the parts of a good summary, and/or I need to study a model or two to help me include all the parts of a summary. Proficient I can summarize experiences / texts that are familiar to me, identifying the gist and conveying the experience / text concisely, and someone unfamiliar with the text/experience can use my summary to learn what the experience / text is and what it conveys. Proficient with Distinction I can summarize experiences / texts that are unfamiliar to me, identifying the gist and conveying the experience / text concisely, and someone unfamiliar with the text/experience can use my summary to learn what the experience / text is and what it conveys.

Interpreting:
Im learning what it means to interpret, considering how I already interpret events in my own life, and considering how to apply this skill to new experiences / texts. I can interpret experiences and texts that are familiar to me, though I sometimes need to revisit tips for how to interpret, and/or I need to study a model or two to help me create a viable interpretation. I can interpret experiences and texts that are familiar to me, describing how the experience or text conveys an idea that can be connected to other texts and experiences. I can interpret experiences and texts that are unfamiliar to me, describing how the unfamiliar experience or text conveys an idea that can be connected to other texts and experiences.

INTERPRETATION

SUMMARY

Im learning what it means to analyze, considering how I already analyze experiences in my own life, and considering how Im asked to use this skill in other settings.

I can analyze experiences and texts that are familiar to me, describing how and why certain parts of the experience or text are important and how those parts connect to your interpretation, though I sometimes need to revisit tips for how to analyze, and/or I need to study a model or two to help me create a viable analysis.

Evaluation
Im learning what it means to evaluate, considering how I already evaluate experiences in my own life, and considering how Im asked to evaluate in other settings. I can evaluate familiar texts and experiences, though I sometimes need to revisit tips for how to evaluate, and/or I need to study a model or two to help me evaluate. I can evaluate familiar texts and experiences, describing why I like/agree or dislike/disagree with the parts, or all of, the texts or experiences message / substance. I can evaluate experiences and texts that are unfamiliar to me, describing why I like/agree or dislike/disagree with the parts, or all of, the texts or experiences message / substance.

In other settings, I can write using the HOT outline for the introduction and conclusion and follow the LEAEAF format in my body paragraphs; I also use transitions within and between paragraphs, linking the sections of text.

HOT and LEAF (Writing: Organization)

I am learning what a HOT introduction and conclusion and LEAEAF format are by studying examples and using templates provided by my teacher. I am also learning to use transitions within and between paragraphs with the help of templates and examples from my teacher.

I use this skill in other settings, identifying vivid and relevant (facts, definitions, details and/or quotations) evidence to support my ideas and can also nearly always identify the best evidence available to develop the topic, considering both variety and credibility.

Choosing Very Best Evidence

I am learning what makes evidence vivid and relevant by using a menu of evidence my teacher provides. I can practice choosing evidence that is most vivid and relevant by using this menu.

I am beginning to use evidence to develop my ideas that is relevant and vivid. I am also beginning to use credible sources and to make sure I use a number of different sources too.

I can support my ideas with vivid and relevant evidence (facts, definitions, details and/or quotations) to develop a topic, sometimes even using the best available evidence. When appropriate, I can make sure I support my ideas with evidence from varied and credible sources

Starting
Figure out complex or unfamiliar language. I realize that when I encounter language that is hard to understand, there are strategies I can use to try to figure it out. I am learning steps to take to tackle difficult language.

Making Progress
I can identify what I do understand when I look at complex or unfamiliar texts, and I am starting to use this to figure out what I dont understand.

Proficient
I can use contextual clues and words that I do understand to figure out the meaning of Shakespeares language.

Transfer
I can apply strategies for figuring out meaning to all texts that are complex or unfamiliar.

MultiView Drawing

Starting Im familiarizing myself with the expectations, and when possible studying models and examples of multi-view drawings that show an object/part in detail.

Making Progress Ive drafted multiview drawings of an object/part to show all features and details, with the help of models and feedback from peers / my teacher.

Proficient Ive begun independently creating multiview drawings of an object/part to show all features and details.

Transfer I can independently and with automaticity create a multiview drawing of an object/part to show all features and details.
