PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Evidence and Support Toolbox: Reading, Writing in English and Content Areas
WHAT WILL YOUR STUDENTS LEARN?

--We often tell our students "Support your reading response with evidence from the text". or, "Now that you have a topic and thesis, develop support for your ideas and content."

--Of course, this is easy to say--sometimes difficult to do. This toolbox tool will help your students when they approach reading analysis tasks, or when they need to develop ideas and content in their own writing and speaking tasks.

--With ongoing reinforcement, students will use the concrete ideas in the toolbox to craft responses to literary and informational texts. They will be better prepared to expand and develop ideas and content in their writing. They will improve their ability to select support that is appropriate to purpose and audience.

--Help students build a common understanding of what “evidence” and “support” looks like. Students will retain and transfer skills and understandings.They will be able to apply their knowledge when facing other instructional and real-world tasks.

--This resource includes teacher instructions, a handout that students can use as a reference, and several practice activities. After multiple opportunities for guided practice, you can adapt materials in the toolbox for independent work.

I am certain you and your students will get much use out the Evidence and Support Toolbox!

Thank you,
The Core Module Classroom
