WRITING

1.3 gather information to support ideas for writing, using a variety of strategies and a wide range of print and electronic sources

1.4 sort and classify ideas and information for their writing in a variety of ways that allow them to manipulate information and see different combinations and relationships in their data

1.5 identify and order main ideas and supporting details and group them into units that could be used to develop a summary, a debate, or a report of several paragraphs, using a variety of strategies (e.g., making jot notes; making sketchboard outlines of a procedure or series of events) and organizational patterns (e.g., combined/multiple orders such as order of importance and cause
and effect)

1.6 determine whether the ideas and information they have gathered are relevant, appropriate, and sufficiently specific for
the purpose, and do more planning and research if necessary (e.g., check for depth and breadth of coverage of the topic)
