ELA Standards: Linking Reading & WritingWhich Reading standards/indicators could be better addressed if a student provided their response in writing?

Which Writing standards/indicators likely require students to read text in order to create a writing response?

How might the integration between reading and writing impact how we assess the new CCR ELA Standards?
