  11. More Than the Sum of the Parts: Pathways to Understanding “Reading is critical to building knowledge in history/social studies as well as in science and technical subjects. College and career ready reading in these fields requires an appreciation of the norms and conventions of each discipline, such as the kinds of evidence used in history and science; an understanding of domain-specific words and phrases; an attention to precise details; and the capacity to evaluate intricate arguments, synthesize complex information, and follow detailed descriptions of events and concepts. … Students must be able to read complex informational texts in these fields with independence and confidence. It is important to note that these Reading standards are meant to complement the specific content demands of the disciplines, not replace them.” - CCSS, ELA & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects “Ramp Up!
