2nd Grade CCSS: Reading: Informational Text

For second graders, this Common Core area helps students gain mastery of the deeper tasks involved in reading a non-fiction text. No matter what they are reading, the standards require students to increase the complexity in the texts they read and deepen their understanding of the connections within and between texts. Among the complete standards for this grade, second graders will be asked to: identify the main topic of texts, understand and use various text features like captions, bold print, subheadings, glossaries, indexes, electronic menus, icons, identify the main purpose of a text, explain how specific images, compare and contrast the most important points presented by two texts on the same topic, read grade appropriate informational texts, including history/social studies, science, and technical texts.
