With some guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach, focusing on how well purpose and audience have been addressed.

Proofread and edit writing recursively for format and conventions of standard English (e.g., spelling, capitalization, grammar, punctuation, syntax, semantics).
Use knowledge of language and its conventions when writing, speaking, reading, or listening.
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English capitalization, punctuation, and spelling when writing.
Choose among simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences to signal differing relationships among ideas.
Demonstrate command of the conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.
