I created the D.E.A.R. method of reading response to fit my students' needs for Common Core instruction in the reading classroom.
According to the Common Core Standards, students should be able to infer from a text, quote directly from the text, summarize, and explain the author's purpose for texts. This packet includes everything your students will need to do those tasks!
This is intended for both literature (fiction) and informational (nonfiction) texts.
D = Direct Quote
E = Explanation (summary)
A = Author's purpose
R = Response
This packet contains a poster of the DEAR acronym, DEAR bookmarks, DEAR student response sheets, DEAR sentence stems, a sample fiction DEAR response, and a sample nonfiction DEAR response.
This set includes multiple versions, a plain version and a more artsy one. The artsier version includes both a colorful set and a black-and-white set. If you want a colorful set without having to use expensive colored ink, then just print the black-and-white set on colored paper or cardstock!
