These 3 short lessons are help for CCSS.ELA.RL.5.1: Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. This Common Core practice follows an "I do," "we do," "you do" model and is part of my Continuous Improvement Model (CIM) series.
NOTE: Because of how the state of Florida revised their standards, this resource IS applicable to LAFS.5.RL.1.1
In this resource are 5 questions related to the RL.1 standard (Key Ideas and Details).
The excerpts for all 3 lessons are adapted from A Little Princess
, by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

In this CIM, the 3 lessons are designed to take under 10 minutes each. They can be done together on a single day (although that is NOT the intent of the product) or on 3-5 separate days.
This CIM uses the "I do," "we do," "you do" model of instruction.
The questions can be used as either multiple choice or short/extended response. These questions are intended for in-class instruction and NOT intended for homework, summative/formal assessment, or portfolio/extended work. The questions are not exhaustive of those that could be asked for this standard, but are a good place to start.
This product is a .zip with 3 separate files: the teacher version (with script), student version without answer choices (open-response), and student version with answer choices (multiple-choice). Student versions may be copied and distributed as necessary for purchasing teacher's classes.
The teacher pages include the questions for display (both with and without answer choices), the excerpts for display, and the teacher script.
To determine if this CIM is what you are looking for, I would encourage you to download my free version of this product, which is practice for RL.6.1:
