9th - 10th Grade Reading: Literature
For ninth and tenth graders, this Common Core area helps students gain mastery of the deeper tasks involved in reading a fictional 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, ninth and tenth graders will be asked to: support a textual analysis with direct textual evidence and explicit inferences, determine the theme of a text and how it develops within the text, be able to give an objective summary of a text, be able to analyze complex word and phrase choices in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings, how language sets a formal or informal tone, how pacing, flashbacks, and parallel plots help manipulate the plot to create tension, analyze how culture is reflected in literature by including reading in world literature, begin to understand the relationship of material to their source work such as the way that Shakespeare might draw on themes from Ovid, read text appropriate to grade level while increasing in the level of text complexity throughout the year.
