I preach to my students to cite evidence from the text, but it takes a great deal of practice and instruction before they really master it. These PowerPoints, student booklet and printable will help your students cite evidence after a bit of instruction and practice!
In this product, you'll receive a:
PowerPoint Introductory Lesson for Choosing Evidence
I have included a PowerPoint lesson to allow you to teach your students to choose evidence from the text
. I have included one reading passage with an open-ended question. Using the PowerPoint, you can show your students that there are often multiple answers and various pieces of evidence will support different answers. I have a Facebook Live, where I "teach" this lesson for you to see. The link is in the preview!
Student Workbook for Practice
This workbook is an eleven-page, double-sided printable with two student booklets per page. In this workbook, your students will be able to practice sorting evidence for two correct answers to the open-ended question. They will use sentence cards to sort which sentences are pieces of evidence for each answer.
Answering Open-Ended Questions
I have included a second PowerPoint lesson to allow you to teach your students to use the evidence they have gathered to actually form open-ended answers
. Using the same reading passage from the first PowerPoint, your students will be able to fill in a printable reference page with sentence stems for answering open-ended questions.
Sentence Stem Printable
One of the most valuable resources my students use is their Sentence Stem Printable. This reference page is formatted to fit into a composition notebook with or without a tab on the side. Some of my students reference this nearly every time they answer an open-ended question to decide how to begin their sentence.
