Today I am learning … to analyze how an author uses and refines the meaning of key terms over the course of a text.
I know I understand when … I can write a response that explains how a text uses and refines key terms.
Students will be able to … locate and define key terms and explain how a text refines the terms.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings; analyze how an author uses and refines the meaning of a key term or terms over the course of a text (e.g., how Madison defines faction in Federalist No. 10).
Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
