Using the short story "The Tell-Tale Heart," this worksheet walks students through the process of citing evidence. The teacher first creates a claim about the narrator. Then the teacher shares different levels of citing evidence.
(Grade 6 Example, Grade 7 Example, Grade 8 Example, and Advanced Grade 8 Example)
Each citation of evidence is a little different, and the citations get more sophisticated with each new grade level. Under each example, the teacher also provided notes as to what is positive about the citation and what needs work.
