This file contains a lesson on how to answer short answer questions. It is structured with a Focus, Essential Questions, Objectives/Goals, Standards, Why, Teach, I Do, We Do , You Do, and Summary. The I Do covers one question, the We Do covers a second question with Example/ NonExample cards. There are an additional 14 questions for You Do and extra practice. The I Do example is color coded to illustrate what the students should include. 7 of the 14 additional questions have color-coded examples to use with the students to explain how the question could be answered. Each question is on one page with a scoring rubric included. This lesson is geared towards 5-6th grade. I would not use it below this level due to subject matter. This is great for common core test prep.
