RL Reading Literature
- Key Ideas and Details
- RL.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text states explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
- RL.2 Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text; summarize a text.
- RL.3 Describe in depth a character, setting, or event in a story or drama, drawing on specific details in the text (e.g., a character’s thoughts, words, or actions)
- Craft and Structure
- RL.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including those that allude to significant characters found in mythology (e.g., Herculean); explain how figurative language (e.g., simile, metaphor) enriches a text.
- RL.5 Explain major differences among prose, poetry, and drama and refer to the structural elements of each (e.g., paragraphs and chapters for prose; stanza and verse for poetry; scene, stage directions, cast of characters for drama) when writing or speaking about a text.
- RL.6 Compare and contrast the points of view from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first- and third-person narrations.
- Integration of Knowledge and Ideas
- RL.7 Make connections between a written story or drama and its visual or oral presentation, identifying where the presentation reflects specific descriptions and directions in the written text.
- RL.9 Compare and contrast the treatment of similar themes and topics (e.g., opposition of good and evil) and patterns of events (e.g., the quest) in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures.
- Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity
- RL.10 Independently and proficiently read and comprehend literary texts representing a variety of genres, cultures, and perspectives and exhibiting complexity appropriate for at least grade 4.
