    as inferences drawn from text.

    emerges and is shaped and
    refined by specific details;
  • Analyze how an author's
    claims are developed.

which the development, organization,
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

Internet, to produce, publish, and
update individual or

advantage of technology’s capacity to
link to other
information and to display
information flexibly and dynamically.

revision) and shorter
time frames (a single sitting or a day
or two) for a range of discipline-
