From student samples, we are beginning to develop a better understanding of what makes a level 4 text.  You can see those ideas  in the rubric as well as the text.  Below is the first piece of student writing where the class really began to understand the difference between a level 3 and 4.  Many students are now attempting to write their own answers to the question in a way that develops at argument – where the writing begins with one idea and develops towards a deeper idea.
