This simple, yet effective printable will allow your students to meet the Common Core Standard of using text evidence in a fun, interactive way. This worksheet is editable, and can be used with any text.
As a teacher model, present the class with any question from any text that you're working with, that requires students to support their answers by using text evidence. Students should then be allotted an amount of time to work in groups or pairs to discuss their thoughts with their group members. Students will then search for the evidence in the text, and be held accountable for their contribution by filling in the areas on the worksheet.
It makes the lesson run extra smoothly, and is a wonderful assessment because students are completely aware of their expectations, as well as engaged! :)
