These sentence stems, designed for nonfiction books or passages are a great way to get kids thinking about the text without taking dreaded side/margin notes. The students will be held accountable for their own comprehension. The stems are helpful in that the students can answer questions preemptively on multiple choice assessments. If they learn to ask themselves these types of questions about the texts they read, they will clearly understand the text and be able to answer the questions more easily. These are great for all students, but are especially helpful for ELLs, intervention groups, or small groups. Included are 43 sentence stems/sentence starters to help students analyze nonfiction texts.
Stem Topics Include: Word Choice, Author's Craft, Tone, Text Structure, and Thesis.
