This product was created to facilitate the implementation of
Common Core ELA/Literacy Shift 4: Text Based Answers. With this shift, students are expected to identify and use evidence from texts to support their arguments, while participating in evidence-based conversations and written responses about text.
This 1 page SAMPLE includes:
- 1 Page of Text-Based Sentence Prompt Cards
These prompt cards can be used during literary discussion or during independent writing. Students can use the sentence starters to develop written responses that include examples and evidence from the text. Using language such as: "prove," "evidence," and "demonstrate" ensures that responses are truly text-based and align with the standards of the new Common Core.
