TEKS Number  STAAR  Student Expectation 

Students analyze, make inferences and draw conclusions about the author's purpose in cultural, historical, and contemporary contexts and provide evidence from the text to support their understanding. Students are expected to compare and contrast the stated or implied purposes of different authors writing on the same topic.

1(F19)(D) 
make inferences about text and use textual evidence to support understanding; 

1(F19)(E) 
retell or act out important events in stories in logical order; and 

1(F19)(F) 
make connections to own experiences, to ideas in other texts, and to the larger community and discuss textual evidence.
