  1. Methods and strategies for using Florida Standards for grades 09-10 reading in Technical Subjects for student success in Applied Engineering Technology.

    1. Key Ideas and Details

      1. Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to the precise details of explanations or descriptions.


      1. Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; trace the text’s explanation or depiction of a complex process, phenomenon, or concept; provide an accurate summary of the text.


      1. Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks, attending to special cases or exceptions defined in the text.


    1. Craft and Structure

      1. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 9–10 texts and topics.


      1. Analyze the structure of the relationships among concepts in a text, including relationships among key terms (e.g., force, friction, reaction force, energy).


      1. Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text, defining the question the author seeks to address. LAFS.910.RST.2.6

    1. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

      1. Translate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text into visual form (e.g., a table or chart) and translate information expressed visually or mathematically (e.g., in an equation) into words.


      1. Assess the extent to which the reasoning and evidence in a text support the author’s claim or a recommendation for solving a scientific or technical problem.


      1. Compare and contrast findings presented in a text to those from other sources (including their own experiments), noting when the findings support or contradict previous explanations or accounts.


    1. Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity

      1. By the end of grade 9, read and comprehend literature [informational texts, history/social studies texts, science/technical texts] in the grades 9–10 text complexity band proficiently, with scaffolding as needed at the high end of the range.

      2. By the end of grade 10, read and comprehend literature [informational texts, history/social studies texts, science/technical texts] at the high end of the grades 9–10 text complexity band independently and proficiently.


  1. Methods and strategies for using Florida Standards for grades 09-10 writing in Technical Subjects for student success in Applied Engineering Technology.

    1. Text Types and Purposes

      1. Write arguments focused on discipline-specific content.


      1. Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/experiments, or technical processes.


    1. Production and Distribution of Writing

      1. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.


      1. Develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on addressing what is most significant for a specific purpose and audience.


      1. Use technology, including the Internet, to produce, publish, and update individual or shared writing products, taking advantage of technology’s capacity to link to other information and to display information flexibly and dynamically.


    1. Research to Build and Present Knowledge

      1. 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.


      1. 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.


      1. Draw evidence from informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.


    1. Range of Writing

      1. Write routinely over extended time frames (time for reflection and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of discipline-specific tasks, purposes, and audiences.


  1. Methods and strategies for using Florida Standards for grades 09-10 Mathematical Practices in Technical Subjects for student success in Applied Engineering Technology.

    1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.


    1. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.


    1. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.


    1. Model with mathematics.


    1. Use appropriate tools strategically.


    1. Attend to precision.


    1. Look for and make use of structure.


    1. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
