Text-Dependent Analysis (TDA) prompts challenge students to cite text evidence to support their answers. TDA questions are showing up more and more on standardized tests. They also encourage students to develop literary analysis skills.
This resource includes five text-dependent analysis prompts for the short story, "Charles" by Shirley Jackson. The questions are written to meet various categories of the Common Core ELA Standards.
This differentiated worksheet pack also includes:
-Two versions of a text-dependent analysis worksheet
-A "Selecting Text Evidence" worksheet
-A "Locating Text Evidence" worksheet
-Two versions of an "Explaining Text Evidence" worksheet
These differentiated worksheets help you to meet the needs of your students, while still working toward building the skills needed to craft text-dependent analysis responses.
ALL answer keys are included.
These questions can be used as text-dependent analysis instruction, practice, review, or assessment. Questions can be used individually or as a set.
