    well as inferences drawn
    from text.

and style
are appropriate to task, purpose, and
audience.
Cognitive Complexity: Level 3:
Strategic Thinking & Complex
Reasoning

Develop and strengthen writing as
needed by planning, revising, editing,
rewriting, or
trying a new approach, focusing on
addressing what is most significant
for a specific
purpose and audience.
Use technology, including the
Internet, to produce, publish, and
update individual or
shared writing products, taking
advantage of technology’s capacity
to link to other
information and to display
information flexibly and dynamically.

frames (time for reflection and
revision) and shorter

or two) for a range of discipline-
specific tasks,
purposes, and audiences.
