LG: Use research tools to narrow a search and broaden your perspective on a topic. ELAGSE9-10W7: Conduct short as well as more sustained research projects to answer a question (including a self-generated question) or solve a problem; narrow or broaden the inquiry when appropriate; synthesize multiple sources on the subject, demonstrating understanding of the subject under investigation. ELAGSE9-10W8: Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the usefulness of each source in answering the research question; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation. ELAGSE9-10W9: Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research. b. Apply grades 9–10 Reading standards to literary nonfiction (e.g., “Delineate and evaluate the argument and specific claims in a text, assessing whether the reasoning is valid and the evidence is relevant and sufficient; identify false statements and fallacious reasoning”).

  1. Research to locate two additional texts on your nonfiction choice person; annotate the texts and develop a works cited page.
  2. Begin comparing/contrasting the way each article’s author uses diction to develop a persona and create a tone about the person you chose to research.
