This digital text evidence resource features four complete lessons. It is compatible with Google Slides. The lessons feature both instructional slides AND practice slides where students complete a task related to the instructional slides. Use these text evidence activities over the course of four days to provide targeted instruction for your students. They can be used as a large group activity, in a small group setting, OR as an engaging self-paced reading lesson.
The slides in each lesson progress from basic to more complex. Answer keys are included. CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW to see some of the slides in these lessons.
Lesson #1: Introduction to Highlighting Text Evidence (8 slides)
-This lesson includes two instructional slides. This lesson begins by teaching students that when they search for text evidence, they need to think like a detective. Just as a detective searches for clues, a reader searches for evidence to support his or her answers. Then, students are shown how they can "shine a light" on text evidence by using a highlighter.
-The lesson contains five practice slides. On the first practice slide, students move flashlights so that they are shining the light on the sentence in the text that answers the question. After that, students are presented with one fiction passage and one nonfiction passage. Three questions follow each passage. Students must highlight the parts of the text where evidence appears. They must also type their answers in text boxes.
-The other slide is the title slide.
Lesson #2: Using Sentence Starters to Answer Explicit Questions (7 slides)
-This lesson includes two instructional slides. The lesson begins by reminding students how they searched the texts for explicit evidence in order to answer questions yesterday. Then, they are introduced to four sentence starters that can be used with these types of answers. Examples: According to the text..., In the __ paragraph...., The author stated...
-The lesson contains four practice slides. Students are presented with one fiction passage and one nonfiction passage. Each passage is followed by 2-4 questions. For each question, students choose one of the sentence starters as they compose each answer.
Lesson #3: Using Sentence Starters to Answer Implicit Questions (9 slides)
-This lesson includes three instructional slides. The lesson begins pointing out that there are times when readers will encounter a question where the answer is not directly stated in the text. When they encounter these questions, they will need to infer the answer. Then, they are introduced to four sentence starters that can be used with these types of inference answers. Examples: When the text said ____, I inferred..., After reading the passage, I concluded that...
-The lesson contains five practice slides. Students are presented with one fiction passage and one nonfiction passage. Each passage is followed by 2-4 questions. For each question, students choose one of the featured sentence starters as they compose each answer.
Lesson #4: Putting It All Together/Test Prep (9 slides)
-This lesson begins with two instructional slides. These two slides review the two categories of sentence starters that they were introduced to in Lessons 2 and 3. I try to reinforce their understanding of each set by stating that the first set of sentence starters is used to answer "RIGHT-THERE" questions, while the second set is used to answer "AUTHOR-AND-ME" questions.
-Six practice slides follow. The main objective for this final text evidence lesson is to expose students to multiple-choice questions. Students will likely see questions like these on standardized tests. This lesson includes one fiction passage and one nonfiction passage. Each passage is followed by three questions, and students are expected to use a sentence starter and text evidence as they answer each question.
This digital lesson resource is an expanded version of my printable text evidence trifolds. The practice activities in my printable trifolds are the same as the practice activities in these digital lessons. The main difference between the two versions is that this digital version offers with that are not included in the printable trifolds. I really want to stress the overlap to teachers who have previously purchased my text evidence trifolds so that they are aware of this overlap before they purchase this expanded, alternate version.
