Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards NC.ELA.RI.9-10.1 and NC.ELA.RI.9-10.6 and partial alignment of standards NC.ELA.L.9-10.6 and NC.ELA.W.9-10.1.a.

The charts are used to get the students to cite information from sources and reflect on the information to used to begin writing an argumentative response.
An opportunity to provide more information and reflection will be gathering information that has an opposing viewpoint.

Partial alignment by covering only the "acquire and use accurately general academic and domain-specific words and phrases, sufficient for reading, writing, speaking and listening at the college and career readiness level" part of standard and should be considered as part of a unit that would address the standard.

The words that are in bold "different" and "Displaced" should be explored on the pre-writing guide. This will keep a focus on how they are connected to the term "universal obligation".

Focus: Superior (3)

Partial alignment by covering only the academic vocabulary part of standard and should be considered as part of a unit that would address the standard.

Any vocabulary that is bold or italicized should be addressed on the guide such as annotating.

Full alignment to depth and breadth of standard tagged.

The graphic organizer uses the fill-in the blank and a chart to review the vocabulary. Another opportunity to reinforce vocabulary is leaving space for students include additional vocabulary that needs to be addressed.
