This activity breaks down the process of responding to text by providing students with a claim, and then a list of details from the text. Students are tasked with selecting the details that work to support that claim, in an effort to get them thinking about the true meaning of what they write for responses (rather than just copying random details from the text).
This activity is paired with a free text from Readworks.com entitled "A New Home" Lexile 480 (https://www.readworks.org/article/A-New-Home/efb94bea-dc3b-4d69-8dd1-384f5d7b6617#!articleTab:content/). A free account is needed to access the article and question set.
This is a supplemental page created to make the process of pairing meaningful details with claims more transparent.
