Use this strategy to help your students learn how to answer short answer (constructed response) questions. This 4 step method teaches students how to organize their answer, cite evidence from the text, explain their answer, and double check to make sure all parts of the question have been answered.
Included in this pack: strategy posters with directions and explanations, 3 answer sheet versions (with and without lines) to allow you to differentiate for your students. Students can use the different versions to draw pictures or write complete sentences. The answer pages are also scaffolded to allow you to choose which part of the 4 step process to focus on.
Can be used whole group, as partner work, for guided reading/writing, as a formative or summative assessment.
