PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have noticed that many of my students have a difficult time making inferences while reading and answering inferential questions. This activity,based on the Kylene Beers "It Says, I Say, And So" strategy ( When Kids Can't Read/What Teachers Can Do, Heinemann 2002) provides a visual method for students to walk through the steps of combining information from the text with their own background knowledge to create fully supported answers. This is great for answering open-ended response questions and short answer questions. Great practice for students supporting answers with text evidence. The questions included in this file are based on Jean Shepherd's short story, "Grover Dill and the Tasmanian Devil." I have included a copy of the story. The time listed for this activity doesn't include reading time.

If you download my product and use it in class, please leave feedback! I would love to hear what works and what doesn't.
