This standard wants students to identify reasons and evidence from the text to support claims that are made using informational texts. This activity gives you step by step instructions how to model identifying author's point and reason using text evidence. It also lists specific learning goals needed to master the skill. Can be cut and glue to be used as an interactive notebook activity if so desired.
Although this standard listed is a Fourth Grade standard, it is similar to the CCSS. RI.3.8, and RI.5.8. Can also be altered to suit any grade identifying author's reason and evidence.
