This chart makes for an engaging activity that creatively meshes reading and writing standards together. Students have the opportunity to evaluate 18 pieces of evidence from the text in relation to a given claim about Ishmael Beah.
Selecting which pieces of evidence "support" the claim may come easily to some students, but it is excellent practice for their own essay writing. The difference between evidence that "disproves" or is "not related" to the claim is more subtle and will require students to think more critically or discuss their reasoning with their peers.
