W.2.2. Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.
W.5.2. Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

Develop the topic with facts, definitions, concrete details, quotations, or other information and examples related to the topic.
Link ideas within and across categories of information using words, phrases, and clauses (e.g., in contrast, especially).
Use precise language and domain-specific vocabulary to inform about or explain the topic.
