Students are being asked to respond to text more and more. This product contains four excerpts with a text-based question for each excerpt. This allows teachers to use one excerpt a day at the beginning or ending of class. It gives students the daily practice they need. It gives teachers a weekly glance at students' progression. What a great data tool to have for student conferences, SST/RTI meetings, parent conferences, etc.! Time should be set at no more than ten minutes for each response. Why four for the week? We allow for an extra day for review, meetings, computer time, make-up work, etc. All products are standards-based.
