During an interactive read aloud or small group reading lesson, students synthesize the ideas in a source, orally and in writing, including identifying one or more of the author’s main ideas and supporting details.
Developing a Point of View
With support, students synthesize the information in an article. As part of this experience, students identify their own perspective on the topic of the article and provide textual evidence to support their thinking.
Analyzing Two Authors' Points of View
Students synthesize the information in two articles in order to explain how two authors writing about the same topic shape their presentations to reveal different points of view.
