This resource is a great guide for students as they wade through multiple text sources cherry picking quotes. The steps guide them through an actual read of several sources to determine how each source works with the others to provide information and opinions on a topic. The resource puts it all together with a thesis statement formula, and a how -to for synthesizing multiple sources as support for claims and assertions. This is perfect resource to aid students in practicing for any for any multiple source text based standardized testing such as the FSA, Sage, or the Advanced Placement synthesis essays. Hand it out and guide the students through the process with a gradual release instruction method.
