This Common Core reading comprehension lesson covers how to cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will practice using subordinating conjunctions in sentence and paragraphs. This skill and concept should expand into larger works of informational text as the year progresses. The term conclusion is used in some assessments to evaluate inference (Smarter Balance). Students will need to know that conclusion and inference are sometimes used interchangeably. The term conclusion is not mentioned in the Common Core Standards. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of independent practice review with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.
