Getting our students to defend their thinking with text evidence is a major focus within the CCSS. In this packet, I have included graphic organizers related to the RL CCSS. There are two versions of each graphic organizer, one with language support and one without. I included additional sentence frames on the last page. I hope these graphic organizers serve as encouragement and reminders for students to support their ideas with evidence from the text. These graphic organizers can be used independently, in small groups or whole class.
Included in this packet:
*Points of view
*Compare and contrast
*Integrated sentence frames
--- one version with language support and one version without
