Grades 910 Reading Standards for Literature [RL] from the 2017 Massachusetts English Language Arts
and Literacy Framework
Key Ideas and Details
1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what a text
states explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.

Craft and Structure

4. Determine the figurative or connotative meaning(s) of words and phrases as
they are used in a text; analyze the impact of words with multiple meanings, as
well as symbols or metaphors that extend throughout a text and shape its
meaning. (See grades 910 Language Standards 46 on applying knowledge of
vocabulary to reading.)
5. Analyze how an authors choices concerning how to structure a text, order
events within it (e.g., parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing,
flashbacks) create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise.

Food for Thought: Edgar Allen Poes bio. (He is from Massachusetts!)
Using Padlet, students will tell us about other authors from Massachusetts/
New England
Students must provide an accurate link to a legitimate site, that provides
us with information about the author. This will determine if they have a
grasp on digital literacy,
