MD.RL. Standards for Reading Literature (RL)
Key Ideas and Details
RL1.CCR. Anchor Standard: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
3.RL1. Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
3.RL1.2. Apply appropriate strategies to monitor understanding when reading, viewing, or listening to a text: reread as necessary; determine main ideas of portions of the text; periodically restate, retell, paraphrase, and/or summarize (See CCSS RL.4.2; SL.3.4-6); connect ideas within the text; make, confirm, and/or modify questions, inferences, and predictions; visualize.
3.RL1.3. Demonstrate understanding, either orally or in writing, after reading, viewing, or listening to a text: determine and explain the main idea (explicit or inferred) of the text; summarize the text (See CCSS RL.4.2; SL.3.4-6); identify what is directly stated in the text; draw inferences and conclusions from the text; confirm, refute, and/or make predictions about the text; connect prior knowledge or experience to the text.
3.RL1.5. Select relevant textual evidence when responding either orally or in writing to text-specific questions.
RL2.CCR. Anchor Standard: Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
3.RL2. Recount stories, including fables, folktales, and myths from diverse cultures; determine the central message, lesson, or moral and explain how it is conveyed through key details in the text.
3.RL2.2. Restate, retell, paraphrase, and/or summarize the text and/or parts of the text either orally or in writing (See CCSS RL.4.2; W.4.9; SL.3.4, 6): Differentiate between key and minor details and events from the beginning, middle, and end of a literary text (See CCSS RI.3.2); Identify and explain the elements of a story (e.g., character(s), setting, problem, solution, sequence of events); Identify and explain plot-based relationships, including sequence/chronology, problem/solution, cause/effect (See CCSS RI.3.2).
3.RL2.3. Analyze details and events in a literary text to determine a message, lesson, or moral: Differentiate between a main idea and a central message, lesson, or moral; Connect appropriate key details to determine how the author conveys a message, lesson, or moral (See CCSS W.3.2).
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
RL7.CCR. Anchor Standard: Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.
3.RL7. Explain how specific aspects of a text’s illustrations contribute to what is conveyed by the words in a story (e.g., create mood, emphasize aspects of a character or setting).
3.RL7.3. Support inferences about the relationship between text features with relevant textual evidence.
RL9.CCR. Anchor Standard: Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
3.RL9. Compare and contrast the themes, settings, and plots of stories written by the same author about the same or similar characters (e.g., in books from a series).
3.RL9.2. Support inferences about the relationship between text features with relevant textual evidence.
MD.RI. Standards for Reading Informational Text (RI)
Key Ideas and Details
RI1.CCR. Anchor Standard: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
3.RI1. Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
3.RI1.2. Apply appropriate strategies to monitor understanding when reading, viewing, or listening to a text: reread as necessary; determine main ideas of portions of the text; periodically restate, retell, paraphrase, and/or summarize (See CCSS RL.4.2; SL.3.4, 6); connect ideas within the text; make, confirm, and/or modify questions, inferences, and predictions; visualize.

3.RI1.5. Select relevant textual evidence when responding either orally or in writing to text-specific questions.
RI2.CCR. Anchor Standard: Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
3.RI2. Determine the main idea of a text; recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea.
3.RI2.1. Differentiate between a topic and an idea (e.g., exercise versus the value of exercise).
3.RI2.2. Determine the main idea of individual paragraphs or selections of a text either by identifying explicitly stated ideas or inferring implied ideas.
3.RI2.3. Connect explicitly stated or inferred ideas from across the text to determine a main idea.
3.RI2.4. Differentiate key details in an informational text from minor details (See CCSS RL.3.2).
3.RI2.5. Paraphrase key details or information.
3.RI2.7. Explain how key details, including those found in text features, support the main idea.
RI3.CCR. Anchor Standard: Analyze how and why individuals, events, and ideas develop and interact over the course of text.
3.RI3. Describe the relationship between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text, using language that pertains to time, sequence, and cause/effect.
3.RI3.2. Apply content knowledge to determine relationships in an informational text.
3.RI3.3. Use text-relevant information and language to explain connections between and/or among events, ideas or concepts, and steps in a text.
Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
RI8.CCR. Anchor Standard: Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, including the validity of the reasoning as well as the relevance and sufficiency of the evidence.
3.RI8. Describe the logical connection between particular sentences and paragraphs in a text (e.g., comparison, cause/effect, first/second/third in a sequence).
3.RI8.2. Explain the relationships between the ideas and information in sentences and/or paragraphs.
RI9.CCR. Anchor Standard: Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
